Dr. McAdam has to be one of the finest medical professionals I've ever dealt with as a patient and professionally. There are certainly a lot of neurosurgeons out there who can do the job but I doubt seriously if any have as much hands on experience as this doctor. He performed surgery on my back over six years ago and with his gifted hands and sound recovery advise I've experienced a 180 degree improvement in my quality of life. I would not recommend any other neurosurgeon before him.

I have rarely met another Doctor so caring, and so qualified...he had tons of experience, knew what was best, prepared me for what was to come, and relieved me from years of pain. I am blessed to have had him as a doctor!

WORST NEUROSURGEON! Do your homework and you will find that he has no lawsuits listed because you have to physically go to the court house to get. He's captain malpractice, has no ethics, and has caused me over a decade of surgeries just to fix what he did. The titanium screws he placed in my lumbar became unscrewed, thus hitting my spinal cord and costing me my health for life. I've now seen some of the best surgeons in the U.S. and theyve all said he never should of had the surgery

I have been a patient of Dr. McAdam for decades. He did my spinal laminectomy in 1985, and my carpal tunnel surgery in 2016. I have never had a more caring, compassionate doctor. He is professional, and very thorough as well.
