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. Explained everything in a way I could understand. The nurse practitioners and staff were great as well. Bedside manner is good too. Traveled an hour to see him but definitely was worth it. 1 year later and doing great !! To me he is the best !!

From the very beginning to a six month post op follow up I have only experienced the highest level of professionalism from not only Dr. Prasad but this extends to his entire staff. Once the decision was made to perform surgery it has been a stress free recovery. I highly recommend going through the process and accepting the decision of surgery. I have never been pain-free until I had the surgery. I highly recommend him

First, I had to wait for at least for an hour.the last time I visted he had asked me to get him the cd of the imaging . I prought him the cd put didn't give him the Radiology report even though I should trust him as a surgeon, so when I asked him what was wrong with me he said that he didn't see any thing in the cd even though the report had evidence that the cd had something in it.He deliberately hid the facts. when I told him that a professor did the imegeing he finally Admit it. Am wondering why all Work injury cases get treeted badly and unfairly? He ignored all of my symptoms , and all I wanted was to get better and live my life normally. P.S. he was very unprofessional and agressive.

I suffered from spinal stenosis for 3 months and Dr. Prasad ended it in an hour or so of surgery. After the 6 weeks of recovery Dr. Prasad projected I feel as if I never had a problem with my back.

Dr Prasad performed a Laminectomy on me in January 2019 to help alleviate some lower back pain. While the actual surgery didn't provide as much relief as was hoped, (a fact that Dr. Prasad made clear was a possibility), his "bedside" manner before and after the surgery was outstanding. I never ever felt rushed in my interactions with him. He was always patient in discussing the intricacies of the surgery, the possible complications, and why or why not it would be successful. Even though he has numerous patients I never felt I was just a number, or just another assembly line patient (as i did at Rothman). I highly recommend Dr. Prasad for your neurosurgical needs.

While experiencing two previous failed surgeries, Dr Prasad diagnosed and addressed my serious conditions in a wholeness and quite unique method. He and his staff treated my wife and I with all of the professionalism and compassion that blew us away from original consult to post surgery. I have highly commended him to several persons in similar distress.
