I had no problem with Dr. Rosenberg. I was told what to expect and what recovery would be and it came to pass. Everything went right on schedule and without any hitches. I would also recommend this doctor and his wonder staff to anyone who might be considering back surgery or an implant for the back nerves.

My wife has suffered for 20 years with low back pain due to an injury. We were looking for the best surgeon as she is a Type 1 Diabetic, and we wanted to know she was well cared for. Dr. Rosenburg is one of the best in the country, and his character is outstanding! Very caring and making sure all of my wife's doctors sign off on the surgery. His entire staff is very caring and helpful.

The surgeon made a huge error in the surgery on my lower back. Within days my back had cerebro spinal fluids that bulged out really largely..you could see it through my clothes After 3 weeks he. scheduled a surgery the next day! After that second surgery he told my husband that the internal stitches were not seen up properly. He took no responsibility..he just used passive voice. But since he did the first surgery it was him who failed to sew me up properly!!!!!! After the second surgery I

Dr. Rosenberg focuses on the quality of care; not the number of patients. He sits down and takes the time to listen which is not common in today's health care world. He genuinely cares of about helping people. Added to those qualities, he is annually ranked as one of the best neurosurgeons in the area. When you call the office, you actually speak to a knowledgeable, friendly staff member. You are not leaving a message for a return call!

First of all, Dr Rosenberg was attentive and took time to listen. I came away feeling heard, cared about, and that my concerns were considered as he and I, together developed a treatment plan that fit my needs. Secondly, the staff was also attentive and caring. The facilities were clean,quiet, and they even offered valet parking. The entire experience was great.
