didn't have enough time with Dr. to answer most of these questions. I still have many questions. Saw Dr for maybe 3 min.

May 03, 2017

My experience was wonderful, very organized, polite staff and knowledgeable.

April 26, 2017

doctor and staff very informative , but when the doctor came in he gave me his opinion and wht he could do for me and shock my hand and out the door he went. (all about 2 minutes) Problem was I didn't get much time to respond or think of questions or concerns to ask him till he was gone.

April 26, 2017

Dr. El-Kadi is an excellent surgeon. I would highly recommend him to all people.

April 26, 2017

very good.

April 26, 2017

My specialist's office was so well organized and the staff seemed to be very qualified. It was very impressive. The Hospital experience during my surgery was fantastic. Very well organized and thorough. The staff was friendly and compassionate.

April 21, 2017

Dr. was not interested in speaking to me once he looked at x-rays. I guess my condition was not urgent/interesting enough for him. His nurse/assistant was the one who spent time with me discussing and answering questions. The Dr. was in the exam room less than 5 min.

April 19, 2017

Very satisfied with my operation and care. Every staff member was kind and courteous.

April 18, 2017

everyone truly exceeded my expectations I would recommend this provider to anyone friends or family

April 18, 2017

He put me on the offense the moment he came in the office. Wasn't a very concerned, caring man. My trip there was useless, as it was my second visit. He already knew (from first look at MRI) he couldn't help me & would refer me, so this trip to his office (over an hour) was a wasted trip. He could have called to make the referral instead of me going there. Now, I have to suffer even longer and & visit yet another doctor. I've already been laid up for 23 months. I would never recommend him. He may be good at his specialty, but he's not good with the dealing with patients part of his job. As I said, he put me on the offense the minute I walked in with a very short, rude-sounding question. His nurse gave me an explanation of things after he left.
