Dr Nida's self written profile is far from the truth. He has no compassion. He did not care about me as a patient. He was not the slightest bit concerned about my health. I was not the text book perfect surgery candidate. He is only concerned about his income not his patients

I am a 70 year old female. I had a cervical fusion (4 levels) 3 years ago by Dr Todd Nida. I chose Dr Nida from 3 other Spine surgeons. The surgery & recovery was excellent. I have not had any more neck issues or pain in the past 3 years. I had a lot of worry & concern before this surgery, I am glad that I chose Dr Nida.

Dr Nida saw me for my neck injury on 11-18-16 because I didn't need sury he dismissed my injury and did not even listen to me after that, wrote a report to my doctor that was totally incorrect as far as my history of my injury and daily activities! If you not getting butchered don't waste your time!

About Me

Care Philosophy

I place the highest priority on improving patient quality of life and function beginning with a thorough evaluation. Every conservative, non-surgical method possible is the first course of treatment. If surgery is needed, microscopic and minimally invasive surgical procedures are used for quicker recovery.
