I've had multipal surgies in the past years and was referred to Dr. Deshmukh after a brain scan showed an aneurysm in my brain. I had seen other neurosurgeons in the past for my back and never had such good treatment as with Dr. Deshmukh. He is very kind, informative, takes as much time as needed with his patients, and has a wonderful bedside manner. He truly cares about his patients. Not only did he preform a craniotomy to clip my aneurysms, he also fixed my back a couple years later. I trust his judgement completely. I wish he was a doctor of all specialties. I am so thankful to have Dr. Deshmukh as my Neurosurgen. He will continue to monitor my brain. Its comforting that he follows up on it. puts me at ease. I also sent my Mom to him and she feels the same way about him. He's the best. He took wonderful care of her and was so good with her. I highly recommend this doctor. If you want the best of the best...he's the one in my opinion and my moms too. Thank you Dr. Deshmukh!

After months of pain, finally had to go to the ER for an MRI because my PCP didn't believe me. Dr. Deshmukh reviewed the MRI and got me in almost immediately. Once in, he scheduled surgery for the next day. Amazing. Highly recommend him.

This doctor is wonderful. I spent almost 3 years seeing various doctors due to back and leg pain. My chiropractor said after seeing my MRI I should contact a Neurosurgeon. Dr Deshmukh gave me some non addictive pain pills which helped reduce the pain some and explained all of my options. I ended up having him do surgery to fix the problem. I'm happy to say my leg pain is completely gone and only have tightness in my back due to not being allowed to bend & twist for the past 3 months.

Someone else described Dr. Deshmukh as the best doctor at the most critical of times. I 100% agree with this statement. Let me put it this way, in the last few years I've dealt with a case of golfer's elbow and brain surgery to remove a CVM. If I somehow had to repeat one of those situations and the choice were up to me, hands down, I'd pick a craniotomy with Dr. Deshmukh every time.
