Dr. Madhok is a kind, patient, caring, sensitive, great neurosurgeon. He is not an alarmist. He listens to his patients and explains everything in a way that is easy to understand. He performed spinal disk surgery on me and I could not be more pleased with the results. He is thoughtful and unpretentious. I recommend him without hesitation.

Dr. Madhok performed spine surgery on me this past summer. I woke up one morning in excruciating pain not able to walk on my left leg. At this time, I am walking two miles a day thanks to Dr. Madhok. He is a caring, compassionate Dr who took the time to explain everything to me and my wife. He was very calming to us both the day of the surgery as well as afterwards. I highly recommend Dr. Madhok.

Dr. Madhok is not afraid to tackle difficult cases, but only after he is convinced that non-surgical approaches will not solve the problem. This is the attitude I look for in a neurosurgeon, and I chose Dr. Madhok because of this and strong recommendations from other doctors. He performed a spinal fusion to treat my severe leg and back pain, and the results have been dramatic. He has a warm personality, listens attentively, and communicates without condescension.

Dr. Madhok is an excellent Neurosurgeon. I experienced a drop foot. An MRI showed I needed a Lumbar Laminectomy(no space between L4 & L5 disc's). It also showed a fracture in my spine. Dr. M basically rebuilt my spine. One day after surgery I was out of bed walking, 1 week later in outpatient rehab and 3 weeks later I am walking without any visible signs of my previous condition. Absolutely pain free. Trust Dr. M, he is an outstanding Dr. and a compassionate person. Thx Dr. M. Nick Gallinaro

On 10/2/18 i had a spinal surgery that was performed by Dr. Madhok and his partner, Dr. Johnson. From the initial consultation until the time i awoke from the anesthesia after the surgery, Dr. Madhok was there for me. I do not believe that the most commonly used adjectives such as kind, courteous, thoughtful and amazing can do enough justice in describing this doctor. He is a true professional and humanitarian, the epitome of excellence.

Dr. Madhok is a true healer. He took me in as a patient and made me whole again after my dreadful car accident. His experience and expertise put me on the fast track to recovery after my ACDF surgery and I owe him everything for restoring my body back to normal.

On July 24, 2018 Dr. Mahdok, Dr. Chen, and Dr. Johnson from Neuroaxis saved my life. I was released W/O a correct diagnosis by the ER 7/11/18. This practice works as a Team. Dr. Johnson helped Dr. Ragone diagnose the infection by ordering a stat MRI exam on 7/20. Dr. Mahdok my ,"Batman " and Dr. Chen, "Robin "removed a grave threat to my life a Haemophilous b 5.3 cm L5-S1 access. This is the second surgery Dr. M and Dr. J had expertly performed on me An XLIF 11/11/16 stabilized my spine

Dr. Madhok was highly recommend to me by my pain management doctor and chiropractor. He has all that they promised. The moment I woke up from my laminectomy, L3-5, my sciatica was gone as was most of the numbness in my legs. He is thoughtful and skilled. Three months post operative I am walking and doing all that I hoped to do. I am looking forward to playing golf in the spring. I would highly recommend him.

After literally breaking my back and meeting with three other doctors, I found Dr. Madhok. He took care of me until I was completely better. We did not rush into surgery. I did not need it Honest, caring, intelligent

Vincent Carlo Aug 4, 2017 It has been 8 months since my very intense Cervical Spine Surgery C1 through C4. With additional work on C5- C7. I am feeling great as the Surgery performed by Dr Ricky Madhok was a a tremendous success. Aside from Dr Madhok's surgical talent his before and after care are equally as good. He is kind, easy to talk to and his hospital bedside and office visits are so comforting. I thank and highly recommend him to others in my situation.

Dr. Madhok is a talented caring Surgeon. He is a very skillful and truly supportive of you throughout the entire process, from first office visit to full recovery. I have had two procedures with Dr. Madhok, one Cervical Spine and one Lumbar Spine, both of a serious nature and both outcomes were very successful. He was truly invested in my wellbeing and the successful resolution of my problem. While surgery can be a life changing event, Dr. Madhok’s skills changed mine for the better.
