Eighteen years ago, I had a failed coiling for a ophthalmic aneurysm, that resulted in a bleed. I had to have a craniotomy to correct the aneurysm. I was fortunate to be referred to Dr. Solomon. He truly is The Best! My surgery went well, as did my recovery. Had it not been for Dr. Solomon, I do not believe my results would have had a good outcome. I will never forget him, and his gentle manner. May God continue to bless him!

I had a 10 mm aneurysm in my right communicating artery. I’m 57 years old and was diagnosed at Yale. The doctors there were lovely but presented a therapy I wasn’t comfortable with. I googled best neurosurgical hospitals in U.S. when I got home and NY Presbyterian came out near the top of the pack. I emailed them writing exactly what my diagnosis was and Dr. Soloman contacted me immediately. He saved my life. I went back to work as an ER nurse after 6 weeks. I would have gone back sooner but he wouldn’t let me. I have since moved to NC and the team with Dr Soloman (Janet and Lynette) have been so awesome. They forwarded everything to my new neurosurgeon making it a seamless transition. The diagnosis is life changing and really scary, do your homework and get the best care you can. I’m really glad I did.

I was diagnosed with approximately a year ago a 7 mm aneurysm in my right communicative artery after meeting with a neurosurgeon at another facility I decided to reach out to Dr. Solomon he explains to me that he was very confident that I would be fine and put my mind at ease . I scheduled the craniotomy for three weeks later and was comfortable with his confidence in doing so. Thank you so much Dr. Solomon for your professionalism and also your office staff was amazing and very helpful.
