I absolutely LOVE Dr Feldman and his staff. He treated me and my family with such kindness and caring. He is like Drs used to be. He takes his time, does things right and actually takes care of his patients. He will definitely be the surgeon I will use again, when more cervical spine surgery is needed. Highly recommend!!

I had a microdiscectomy and a carpel tunnel release surgeries at the same time. Dr. Feldman gave me relief from more than 30 years of pain. His confidence and caring manner gave me the courage to 'bite the bullet' and have surgery after years of avoiding it at all costs. I thank him and his staff for the care and concern they have shown me. I highly recommend Dr. Feldman and his staff!

Dr. Feldman takes the time to explain the procedure and all the possible things that could go wrong. He answers all of your questions before and after the surgery. His staff is very professional and keep you informed of all aspects of the Surgery procedures from your insurance coverage to Pre-Opp to Post Opp . I would recommend Doctor Feldman to anyone with back problems . Pastor William Gent(Retired )

Dr Feldman was a Godsend. Identified my blown disc with MRI and showed me what needed to be done, explained the options and inside of a week I had surgery and was on my way to recovery. I hardily recommend.

Dr. Feldman is a skilled surgeon who takes the time to explain procedures to his patients. I left his office with no questions. I walked out of the hospital after surgery with no pain.

I am very grateful for the surgery performed by Dr. Feldman and the support provided by his staff at the Florida Institute of Neuroscience. This was my first surgery conducted on my 74th birthday. It was a L2,L3,L4,L5,S1, bilateral laminectomy to relieve nerve root compression that caused significant spinal stenosis with declining mobility. The surgery provided an immediate relief of all the stenosis symptoms and I was able to walk unassisted in the hospital the following day. Dr. Feldman not only provided a wonderful surgery he returned to the recovery room afterwards to check on me and again at the hospital the following day prior to my release. I took muscle relaxing medication for 2 days post- op but did not require any pain medication. Regaining normal mobility was the best birthday gift ever. Dr. Feldman is highly experienced, talented and caring spine neurosurgeon to whom I attribute the success of my surgery and rapid recovery.

I had a bulging disc that was pinching a nerve and causing lumbar and leg pain. Dr Feldman took time with me to make sure I understood everything completely and made me feel at ease. My surgery was a success and I look forward to many years of freedom from the pain I had been living with.

I was a little skeptical and worried about spine surgery but between Dr. Feldman and his staff my concerns were put to rest BEFORE the operation and the pain I was having due to a herniated disc was GONE immediately coming out of surgery. I wish I had been able to have this done earlier rather than suffer from the pain. Everything was explained to the finest detail and no pressure was made to have the surgery. I was afforded the opportunity to ask questions. Highly recommed.

Dr. Feldman is an excellent physician. He did my back surgery last year, and had to return to him this year due to sciatica problems. Really thought I would be wheelchair bound. But, he fixed that problem. Thank the lord I can walk without hurting. It has been three weeks since my surgery. Only pain I feel while walking is surgery pain, and that is expected. I highly recommend Dr. Robert Feldman.

I would recommend Dr. Feldman to everyone he and his staff are great. First time that I have been treated by a doctor that really listens and takes the time explains things. I just recently had surgery by Dr. Feldman and can't tell you what a relief it was to know that I was having him do the procedure. You know that you are in very capable hands and that is very reassuring when having any type of surgery let alone neck surgery.

Dr. Feldman performed an anterior decompression and fusion surgery on February 18th, 2019. I was diagnosed as having a compressed spinal cord that caused severe numbness of my arms and hands. I had difficulty walking to the point of almost needing a walker. Two weeks later the numbness was much reduced and my walking was greatly improved. He is excellent with patients. He shows you the problem on a screen linked to his computer and explains the surgery in layman terms. A plus Dr!

Phenomenal surgeon with a great better side manner! I had a severe canal narrowing and cord compression. Dr Feldman has such a passion for taking care of his patients. He came in on a day off to take care of my neck. Dr Feldman stopped and asked us if we had any questions multiple times throughout our first visit. He also ensured that we were happy with his answers while explaining, sometimes at length, that we understood everything that was going to happen and what to expect. Thank you.

If I could rate him a 6 star I would, his staff, P.A. and Dr. Feldman were great. I have had 4 other major surgery's before so I knew what to expect and I received more than expected. Thanks again Jeff G.
