WHY DOES IT TAKE DAYS TO RETURN A PHONE CALL
BE NICE IF THEY WOULD RETURN PHONE CALLS. I LEFT 3 MESSAGES AND STILL HAVE NOT HEARD ONE WORD FROM ANY ONE. I'M ABOUT TO GIVE UP AND FIND ANOTHER DOCTOR. SOMEONE SHOULD BE ANSWERING HIS OFFICE CALLS NOT LEAVING MESSAGE AFTER MESSAGE. NOT VERY PROFESSIONAL FOR A SPECIALIST DOCTOR.

One year ago, I was referred to Dr. Prasad, after wasting 4 months with another Neuro Surgical group who could not help me nor diagnose the cause of my declining mobility and increased paralysis. The day of my phone call to obtain help, I was completely paralyzed in both legs, sitting in a wheelchair, not knowing what my problem was. One phone call to Dr. Prasad's office, with an appointment 4 days later, to be diagnosed and referred to Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia the same day, and surgery two days later with a laminectomy to remove a tumor in my spinal column which was compressing my spinal cord which was causing the paralysis. I was treated with the ultimate professionalism, by the best doctor I have had after 10 plus surgeries in my life. Dr. Prasad is an excellent neurosurgeon, very professional, caring, willing to listen, but also an excellent communicator, and genuinely cares about his patients as if they are his family.

Dr Prasad was a perfect doctor/surgeon, from the first informative meeting with him, to pre-surgery; to surgery-day; and to post-surgery appointments. He was informative and patient during our meetings, answering all of my questions. All of his staff were most helpful. They are all entitled to 5-stars.

Dr. Prasad and his entire team are absolutely outstanding! Dr. Prasad has a wonderful bedside manner and shows true compassion. His nurse, Mary, was like a gift from above to me. Honestly, you could not find two kinder people anywhere. The herniated discs in my back were causing such significant sciatic pain that I was unable to work, sit, stand or walk. I had such tremendous pain-24/7. Two sets of epidural injections and months of chiropractic care did nothing to ease the pain. I was tired of living on strong pain killers every 4 hours and even though, I was very hesitant and quite a bit apprehensive to take the next step to see a neurosurgeon for relief, I am so thankful that I did. I was able to make an appointment relatively quickly and from there, I was scheduled for surgery in less than two weeks. Mary helped to set up my necessary pre-surgical appointments and everything went very smoothly. I had total confidence in Dr. Prasad and I was not disappointed. When I first me

Dr. Prasad performed a spinal fusion on my back August 24, 2021. All the pre-op tests were set up by his office which was such a big help. After being in pain for a year, I finally feel like myself again. I am sleeping again and feel great. Dr. Prasad and the team the day of my surgery, eased my mind and helped to take my anxiety away. The team in Dr. Prasad's office were always so prompt in returning my calls and so nice and helpful whenever I called with a question or concern. If anyone out there is in pain and hesitant about back surgery, I would highly recommend Dr. Prasad to take the best care of you and your back!

There was never a doubt in my mind that I had made the right decision as far as Dr. Prasad. From the time that I met him at the initial consultation visit, through two spinal surgeries, and all the post op visits it has been an awesome experience. Besides being a very gifted physician and surgeon Dr. Prasad is a true gentleman. He spends the time to explain, educate, and mainly listen to your concerns. Dr. Prasad has performed cervical and lumbar surgeries on me with amazing results and no complications. Along with Dr. Prasad's caring and professionalism he has a wonderful team working with him.

Doctor Srinivas Prasad is an excellent physician. My husband and I were both extremely impressed by Dr. Prasad’s expertise from the first visit and on through the following visits leading to and throughout the surgeries and the post-operation visits. Dr. Prasad is a highly educated and knowledgeable neurosurgeon, who is always very professional, pleasant, and very caring. Dr. Prasad referred to the MRI and CT test results and was very clear and thorough in explaining my spine issues, He very clearly explained options and the expected results of each option. After detailed discussions we agreed to what would be the best option with the best desired results. The decision was made to have Dr. Prasad perform two surgeries, which involved decompression and fusion spanning L-2 to S-1. The surgeries were very successful. My life is greatly improved. It is impossible to thank Dr. Prasad and his staff enough. They will always have my gratitude for the greatest care I could have had.

Dr. Prasad was recemented to me by my husbands endocrinologist Dr. Arvind Cavale, and we took him up on it, and it was the very best thing that ever happened to me, when I first met Dr. Prasad he was very friendly, professional and knowledgeable, he had me take some tests and have x rays taken for my next meeting with him, at that time he recommended and scheduled me to have surgery, which I have had and now I'm recovering quite well from, he had me attend St. Mary's recovery facility, which was a wonderful experience, they covered every posable challenge that I might experience at home, I have had two post operation visits with nurse Jessica L. and Dr. Prasad which included a post op x-ray which showed positive progress, during this whole procedure we have been given copies of all of the tests and x-rays that have been taken, I have been wearing a back brace and taking spine stimulation procedures for two hours every day which is helping the healing procedure. Thank You Dr. Prasad.

I quickly recovered after spine surgery to relieve pressure on a nerve due to a thoughtful midline incision that is now barely noticable. After 4 years of sciatica, I believe that I'm on my way to a better recovery. Dr. Prasad is very thoughtful, caring, skilled and accessible.

I am a 49 year old male and a practicing Dentist for 20 years. I herniated L4-5 discs in an athletic event . Years of Dentistry and Dental surgery also had an impact on my back. Tried rest ,medications , PT, exercises ,acupuncture, Chiropractics and Epidural injections but the consistent nagging Sciatic nerve leg and lumbar pain never left me ! Dr.Prasad took the time and reviewed my MRI,CT and X rays with me and as I expected recommended Endoscopic Microdiskestomy to remove the herniated part of my disc. The one hour procedure was under general anesthesia and I woke up out of pain .incision is only 18 mm long. I could walk in one hour post op. Two weeks after my surgery I am 95% pain free.slight tightness remains. I highly recommend Dr.Prasad , and his team if you need Spinal Neurosurgery. Dr.Prasad and his NP.Melissa were kind , professional and helped me through this process . With advanced , modern surgical techniques there is no need to suffer from back pain any longer.

Upon meeting Dr. Prasad, I immediately felt confident in his care and capacity. Prior to this appointment, I had met with surgeons who were quick to insist upon surgery for my L4/L5 herniation. Dr. Prasad was very comfortable to allow me to decide if and when the time was right for me. Allowing me the freedom to take more time with PT/Pain management, coupled with his extensive experience of other patients in my situation, made my decision an easy one. After my surgery, I am so thankful to his staff, Dawn, Mary, and Leila, and Melitza, for ensuring my safety, scheduling, and any concerns I had while healing from surgery. Thank you for everything you have done for me!!

Dr. Prasad and his team were fantastic. I had emergency surgery April 15,2020 in the midst of this pandemic. The entire team at Jefferson did a great job with managing patient safety protocols. I can't thank Dr. Prasad enough for the level of care and the way I was treated. He addressed all my questions, and made me feel comfortable with my decision. I'm now 10 weeks in recovery and feeling great. I have zero regrets and would highly recommend Dr. Prasad to anyone faced with needing back surgery. Thank you for giving me my life back!!

I'm a 63 year old male who started suffering from spinal stenosis, which resulted in the crushing of the nerve leading from my L4 - L5 vertebrae to my right leg. Before I visited Dr. Prasad, I tried: physical therapy, pain killers, acupuncture, exercises, a spinal injection of a steroid....no notable relief. He correctly diagnosed the real problem, patiently and carefully explained the needed procedure and post-operative treatment. With his skilled staff, Dr. Prasad opened the area of the spine, noted above, and released the pressure on the nerves leading to both my right and left legs. I went from excruciating agony to total relief under his care. I will forever be thankful for his and his staff's expertise. He is all you could hope for in a doctor.

Excellent, excellent, excellent ! Great Dr. Would Highly recommend. He took a look at my MRI and knew I needed surgery ASAP. Saw him on Friday and had the surgery Monday.
