What People Say About Dr. Valentine Nduku, DO
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Dr.Nduku had no contact to me before or after my surgery. I had a single consult with him in the ER and it was the last time I saw him. He performed the surgery but did not talk to neither me or my wife after. Thank god for the good nurses who coached me on after care and what to expect in recovery. I had a routine lumbar discectomy and I can’t use any weight on my right leg a week later. I don’t know what happened in surgery but I am not happy with my care at all. I hope the rest of you have better luck.

very efficient, made sure he was completely informed by running all of the correct tests before making any decisions. I will use him only for any other back problems I may have requiring surgery.

Dr. Nduku saved my husband life. My husband was in a really bad motor vehicle crash that left him paralysis. Dr. Nduku did emergency surgery the next day on my husband because he had several fracture that left him with Incomplete Spinal Cord Injury and Quadriparesis back in September 2018. It's almost the end of the year and My husband is using a walker now and doing really well with therapy. Thank you Dr. Nduku you are truly a blessing, also the office staff is very nice.

Nduku cancelled my surgery, with no explanation, very late the night before scheduled. Day of the surgery, he was 6 hours late claiming he was in route from his office. (a 6 min. drive). I was in surgery three hours longer than scheduled then he tried to leave the hospital without talking to my wife at any time during or after. Back re-herniated in a month and I have not been able to work since. Have no idea what happened in surgery. Run like hell from him and East TN Brain & Spine J City,TN
