Patient Comments (13)
Three months after surgery I am pain free and feeling much better. Everybody we have worked with has been very helpful and informative.
Completely positive! Surgery went very smoothly, everything was explained thoroughly before and after the procedure, staff was helpful at the office and surgery center, and appointments were easy to make and I was seen on time every time.
Excellent surgeon and team. My results are fantastic and I'm delighted with my mobility. Thanks so much for all of your good work!
I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Rajpal! The initial appointment was very well. He's very personable and honest. He's knows what he's doing. I had 3 docs I interviewed for my procedure and I am very pleased I chose Dr. Rajpal!! Call, email, whatever, talk to him about your pain!! 5 STARS! Thank you sir!

Had a surgery 3 years ago, and so far no pain or side effect or anything. Amazing job. Thank you!
I was very pleased with the care I received. I appreciated the respect that was shown by all staff members.
Dr. Rajpal is a fantastic neurosurgeon. I would highly recommend him (and I do) to anyone needing surgery.

Dr Rajpal and his staff have been wonderful. He found the problem that other doctors had missed. He explained what needed to be done and then fixed it. I am bumping 50 now and my back hasn't been this good since I was in my early 20s. He removed rods and screws from a previous surgery another doctor performed and installed new hardware, moved up a section to L-4, installed cages at this area and removed a cyst. Would also like to thank him for recommending Good Samiritian Hospital. GREAT!
Great experience with all of the medical team.
Terrific!!! Wonderful doctor, his entire team is absolutely great, friendly and helpful, could not be in better hands.

Dr. Rajpal came highly recommended by a friend. However, after waiting over a month to get in to see him, I ended up spending more time seeing the PA than the doctor himself. There was no MRI review, no discussion of options...just "you need a fusion". While that may be the case, I would have like to have been shown what was wrong and at least had them go over the MRI report with me. I left feeling very disappointed.

I really liked Dr. RAJPAL. Unfortunately as time went on his load got bigger n bigger. Great for him,not so great for me. Ive had 4 fusions, laminectomy, and cyst removal. I totally TRUST him with these operations. He is a great doctor. Oh, and by the way, he's very honest. I love that. He also shows you exactly where your problem is..via mri/exray. Ive only been to 2 neurosurgeons so not a lot to compare. Bedside manner a 10. Going to miss the whole staff, as we have moved to
in Colorado Speings, CO |
I have never seen a doctor like Dr. Rajpal! I could have not been more satisfied! He spent 2h with me to discuss my condition and options. Surgery went very well. His surgery wait time was very reasonable. He is a very knowledgable and a pleasant character. I come all the way from the Springs to see him and it's very well worth it!
