I was terrified to have lower lumbar spinal fusion surgery. The success rates in general were not impressive. I happened to be talking to my bank manager about my pain. She immediately told me her story of how Dr Prasad saved her life. She had surgery in her neck. She is now healthy without pain. Dr Prasad saved my life. He replaced L3, L4,L5. I have no pain. I am back to being happy and useful. Before my pain was so depressing. Thank you to Dr Prasad and his team. They are excellent.

Dr. Prasad is an exceptional physician and surgeon. 5-Stars in all categories! He took time to educate me in layman’s terms while assessing my MRI and symptoms, explaining everything fully and giving me less invasive surgery options. Dr. Prasad and his team were very responsive to my calls and questions. He personally returned my calls within 24 hours – amazing. Despite his busy schedule, my appointments never felt rushed, nor were any questions treated lightly. I am lucky I found him!

I had been suffering for over 35 yrs with severe back pain. Everyday life was difficult and painful. After meeting Dr. Prasad I felt extremely confident that he could help me. A year ago this month i underwent surgery. And life has been amazing ever since! I can run and play with my grandchildren and plan large meals with my family all without pain. Shopping, walking our dog and all of the things I couldn't do prior are now possible! Dr. Prasad is EXTRAORDINARY!! THANK YOU DR. PRASAD!

I called to schedule an appointment as a new patient on Friday 10/5 and was told that "the person who answered the phone was the only 1 in the office and she would call me back shortly, after waiting 1 1/2 hours, I called again and spoke to another person who told me that the other person would call me next week to set up the appointment. The only information that was given in the first phone call was my first name & number. It is now Wed 10/10 & I have yet to receive a call. This is horrible.

After experiencing worsening symptoms after a prior back surgery, I found Dr. Prasad. He was genuinely concerned about my worsening symptoms. After trying Physical Therapy, Massage, Accupuncture etc , we agreed that surgery was needed. Dr. Prasad is a very knowledgeable and caring Physician. He takes the time to explain procedures and answer all of your questions. Know matter how busy he is, he is always smiling and happy to see you.

After being told by my Personal Physician and my Rheumatologist that I needed Cervical surgery I asked for a recommendation. Both of them recommended Dr.Prasad. Dr. Prasad and his staff were extremely professional as well as very caring. I developed a complication after my surgery that he and his staff handled very efficiently. I would recommend Dr. Prasad to anyone needing cervical surgery.

I was so grateful that Dr. Prasad was recommended to me. He is extremely personable, very well educated and tops when it comes to surgical skills. In other words, should one require neurological surgery, Dr. Prasad should be your doctor of choice.

I’m forever grateful to Dr Prasad for fixing my back. My surgery was one year ago and I still feel great! He was so kind, along with his staff, and very informative. He took me through the entire process during the pre-op visits and I never felt rushed. After surgery, he was reassuring and confident in my recovery, not pushing me to therapy too soon, which I think was important for recovery. I would highly recommend Dr Prasad to anyone experiencing back pain.

Wonderful doctor, performed a miracle for me - I can walk again without pain. I was told by another "doctor" surgery would not help me so I went to Dr Prasad for 2nd opinion. Best thing I could have done! Dr Prasad is a very intelligent, kind, and attentive doctor I would and have recommended to everyone. His staff is also excellent, including CNPs, office staff, and the nurses and PT on floor 8 at Jeff. Love you all, Thank you

Dr. Prasad is absolutely professional as well as caring about his patients. I have had the pleasure of having to use his services twice in the last fives years. I don't know of another physician/surgeon I would rather go to. He and his staff have been outstanding in the care they have given me. The two operations he has completed on me have turned out perfectly. My recovering was quick with little scaring. Dr. Prasad is truly amazing. Thanks for all you do Dr. Prasad! Thanks, Chris
