January 18, 2017

This was one of the best Doctor's visits I have ever had. The front desk and back office staff were fantastic. And the Doctor was very confident, friendly and reassuring in dealing with my concerns. He also noticed additional problems on my MRI that the attending Radiologist and my 1st Neurosurgeon missed. I was 110% impressed and pleased. I definitely will recommend him.

January 18, 2017

This was my first visit with Dr. El Kadi and the overall experience was a good one. He and his staff are very professional and take their time to listen to all your concerns. I give them an A+

January 18, 2017

I can for a second opinion on by back if I need surgery which another doctor said I needed right away. Dr EL-Kadi said he did not feel this would be a good idea. He explained everything to me. Was very happy.

January 11, 2017

Dr. El-Kadi was the first doctor that actually took the time to show me the results of the MRI and show me on the MRI what those results meant. He helped me understand more of what was really going on - and hopefully his treatment plan will help correct the problem. Very impressed with the amount of time he spent helping me understand the issues with my back and hip. Could really appreciate the fact that he spent the time with me and helped me understand why a certain treatment plan was needed.

January 11, 2017

the doctor himself did not explain things clearly or offer explanations for the problem. we had ask him to explain. he seemed in a hurry. the assistant was very helpful.

January 06, 2017

Drove 6 hours to see the provider for 5 minutes. Can understand the desire to see more recent images but physical therapy has already been done. He was in such a hurry I was unable to talk about my concerns.

January 04, 2017

Dr. El-Kadi and his staff were efficient, courteous and knowledgable. I felt that I was in expert hands and understood my low back pain issue better.

January 04, 2017

it was all very good

January 04, 2017

It was a pleasant visit

January 04, 2017

It was a self referral for a specialist's analysis of my condition and whether surgery would be helpful. I was very satisfied with the doctor's professional opinion and must now consider whether this is a step I will take.
