Dr. Sanjay was not completely attentive and was more interested in typing and reading what was on his computer than talking and explaining things to me and my wife. He also readied questions that were answered and gave us the feeling that what he wanted was the only way to move forward which may be true but I felt very pressured to schedule the appointment.

Didn't take my concerns seriously. Said would call me to schedule follow-up, still hasn't called. Nurses very rude and short with me. Even though I asked before leaving, didnt put in prescription. Had to call after hours and then they finally put in my prescription

I saw Dr Sanjay Patra after another neurosurgeon botched a cervical decompression leaving me with the sensation of three fractures in the arm and wrist and it felt like it was on fire from my elbow to my fingertips. I was referred to Dr Patra by my pain specialist. Dr Patra is this nicest neurosurgeon ever, no ego, no attitiude just wants to help. Be sueficslly I planted a spinal cord stimulator trial and a week later implanted the drum permanently. He changed my life from hell to heaven!

I saw Dr. Patra for a second opinion. He is the nicest man. I felt like he listened to my concerns and answered all of my questions even though this took a fair chunk of time. He explained the surgery to me and talked about the various methods that can be used along with the pros and cons. While he said he probably isn't the one to do my particular surgery, he was happy to connect me with a surgeon in the practice that does it all the time. If you need a neurosurgeon, look no further.
