I came from NC to GA to have surgery. I had extreme leg and back pain before Dr. Elshihabi performed surgery. I am now able to shower for the first time in 5 years with no pain. Pain in leg is 100% gone. Back is 90-95% better as it is still healing. Highly recommended!

Heidi Meyer was extremely genuine to me, my circumstances, my experience, & my needs. She took the time to hear me cry & she listened to me! She was concerned about my health and well being and continued reminding me that she would always be available!!! I could not have progressed through my journey without her expertise and sensitivity!! Thanks to the staff and Legacy Brain & Spine here in Atlanta, GA.

Dr. Elshihabi was kind enough to meet with me over FaceTime during the COVID-19 stay-at-home time period. I was under immense pain and he was able to quickly meet with me, understand my symptoms, and assist in prescribing both immediate and near term solutions. Dr. Elshihabi was empathetic, easy to talk with, and extremely knowledgeable about my current situation. In addition, he made my first ever visit to the doctor through FaceTime a great success.

As a patient who suffered from years of neck pain, Dr. Elshabi, was the best surgeon for me. He was patient, kind and very thorough. Initially, I was reluctant to have the surgery but after a consultation with him and his team, I agreed. It was the best thing I could have done. I feel so blessed to have him as my neck surgeon.

From start to finish my experience with Dr. Elshihabi and his staff was marvelous. He was always on time and straight up with me as was his staff. If you have a neck problem he is the person to go to.

Dr.E. helped me find comfort. My husband and I were in a car accident. I couldn't walk comfortable on my left leg and my back at L3 and L4 are messed up. Didn't want to have surgery. Gave me a shot that I call liquidbgold help me get back to a normal life. Thank you so much Dr. E. and his staff you all are truly one in a million. You all care about your patient' and listen to them. Very hard to find a doctor that is concerned and caring. Hands down this doctor is 5 stars. I drive 1 1/2 hours just to see him.

I have been here for over an hour waiting to see this doctor. He speaks with me for only a few minutes nothing was resolved last time. I am hoping this time it is proactive. I am losing my patience.

Lots of surgeons lack the compulsion or the capacity for kindness. Dr Elshihabi is in a completely different category. Although I find it impossible to go into surgery without anxiety, my experiences with this kind and brilliant man afford me much more peace of mind than any other surgeon I've dealt with.

I highly recommend Dr. Elshihabi, I really believe he is a genius. I had been to several doctors who could not figure out what was wrong with me. He knew what was wrong with me right away, and fixed my back. He took time to answer my questions, he came to the hospital everyday to see me, even on Christmas! If you want a real caring top notch excellent surgeon, you will not find a better one than Dr. Elshihabi.

He sat with me, and listened to my concerns. He defied my stereotyped view of a surgeon. Excellent post-op recovery, so I was very pleased.

Dr. Elshihabi is a very nice person and is always courteous. He is very easy to talk to and is knowledgeable in his field. He has offered for me to get 2nd opinions, but I trust him and and do not feel the need to do that. His staff is great and it seems that they are a caring team. I have seen a few spinal doctors and this one is the best.
