Dr. Das barely answered my questions before my procedure, giving noncomittal and vague responses. After every question he urged me to begin my epidural cervical injections. He was in a hurry the entire time and I had to ask my other questions while the procedure was being performed, then had my concerns blown off as all being part of another disease I have, even though another specialist since said otherwise. I've been in dire pain since these injections and they couldn't care less. My initial consultation was done by a student and an assistant. I didn't even meet Dr. Das until the day of my procedure. After I called and left messages I got a call from an assistant that never saw me who said take ibuprofen even through I said it wasn't working. I said I don't want narcotics but my prescription medication wasn't helping. I felt like I was being blown off as a drug seeker. I still haven't gotten a call from Dr. Das and I'm in worse pain than before. I don't recommend him at all.

My neck has been causing me immense pain for months, and I couldn't get in anywhere because of covid... I got an appointment within two weeks for an evaluation and then an injection, and my pain is almost gone! They followed all of the proper safety guidelines too, I am very happy I chose BSNI!

My back had been killing me for years, but with a quick surgery from Dr. Das I've been feeling a lot better... I got an appointment in a week and a surgery in just a couple more, my only issue is that I wish I had found him sooner!

Dr. Das and his team helped me immensely with my back problems. I had already been seeing another doctor who could not diagnose me, but I got an imaging consultation from Dr. Das and he saw my problem immediately! I started injections within two weeks and am now mostly-pain free

Dr. Das operated on my mother and it couldn't have gone better. She hadn't been able to walk for years due to her pain but she was up and moving within days after her surgery, it was nothing short of a miracle. I can't praise or recommend Dr. Das enough, it was the best treatment we have ever gotten

Ruined my life, put screw in wrong way during 2 disc fusion, rushed me in for 2nd surgery the following week. The screw fractured my si, severed my nerves and I still take 16 pills a day plus now a battery in my back. I was only 35 when I became permanently disabled.

I went in for lumbar fusion, admitted under his care, woke up 5 days later with brain damage. The pain was 10 times worse in my back and he couldn’t care less. The TEFLON DON OF DOCTORS Now he’s making $$$ hand over fist and I can’t even work to support my family.... Karma will come back to him 10 fold

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.
