in Houston, TX |
Dr. Dodwad is an excellent surgeon. I was very leary of having any further surgery to repair discs in my neck. Dr. Dodwad's friendliness and genuine concern for my health helped to make me feel at ease and that helped me to put total trust in his performing the surgery. I am very glad I did.

Dr. Dodwad has excellent bedside manner while in the hospital and during office visits. He's very knowledgeable in his expertise and thoroughally explains your condition and surgery. Manny, his MA is just as professional and knowledgeable also. I had a ruptured L5-S1. He explained everything that was going to happen the day of emergency surgery to the future plans. I will be returning to work next week with zero pain. Thank you, Dr. Dodwad. He is a miracle worker.

I was admitted to Hermann Memorial Hospital through the ER & was in surgery in less than 12 hours. Dr. Dodwad met with me prior to surgery & explained to me what the plan of action was & answered any questions I had. He took the time to make sure I was comfortable & assured me I was going to be alright. After surgery he came to visit me everyday & I felt he was genuinely concerned about my recovery. I can say I would definitely recommend him to anyone who needs to have spinal surgery.
