Dr. Das was very clear of symptoms and didn't sugarcoat anything. He told me the positives of surgery and then told me the risks. Scheduled my MRI's and CT Scan immediately and now I am awaiting the final decision on surgery.

Dr Daas is horrible. I had a procedure done by him the pain is worse then before refuses to do anything My Legs are so swollen you can not tell if there legs are not. I have had to go to the ER Several Times he does not care or believe the level of pain I am in. Treats you like your drug addict and wants nothing to do with you once the procedure is done. Please suspend his license

Dr. Das was completely unfamiliar with my history or why I was there, both times he saw me. 1st time ,he asked for 30 secs to review my MRI. 2nd time , less than 4 mins in the room, he spent the majority trying to read my chart, ignored my symptoms, picked the one HE felt was my main concern before referring me out bc he didn't see anything operable, refused to order further testing. CSF leak symptoms and he couldn't care less. I wasn't even his patient.

Dr. Das knew exactly what I had my first visit. After and MRI he performed spinal surgery on me in November 2018. He is the greatest. I would recommend him to anyone. Thank you Dr. Das for taking away the paid I had for years. His staff is wonderful also.

Dr. Das performed a laminectomy on my father 9 weeks ago. My dad walked into the hospital without any need of assistance, we were told that he would be up and walking shortly after surgery and going home that same day. My father woke up from surgery unable to feel his legs, he has been in acute care at Fatima Hospital for 2 months and still can not walk. I would not recommend this surgeon.

Surgery on my wife left her in as much or more pain than she started with. Lamenectomy but he went too low then said surgery went fine. Second doctor could clearly see missed pinch point. Would let him operate on a hamster!!!!! Use caution!!!

Dr Das was instrumental in my positive recovery. If it was not for him, I would most likely be paralyzed. His demeanour and professionalism are second to none. His explanation of the impending surgery was very clear and concise.I would highly recommend him for your spinal needs.

I have a problem with my sciatic nerve. I got a cortisone shot this year from Dr. Das. I have for the first time in five years been pain free. I have been able to exercise (stretching and walking) and as a result have lost 25 pounds. Unfortunately I twisted too quickly getting into my car and I aggrivated the nerve. I got an appointment in 2 days. I explained what happened and Dr Das listened and offered suggestions to improve.
