March 10, 2017

I've had wonderful care by everyone , and I have no complaints

March 01, 2017

I was able to get my first appointment the next day, and was very pleased with the staff, facility and Dr. El-Kadi.

February 22, 2017

Dr. El-Kadi seemed knowledgeable about my problem, but once he explained my diagnosis he seemed to be in a hurry, he might have been in the room 5 minutes. I wanted to ask questions, but felt like I could not.

February 17, 2017

the wait time was ridiculous...arrived early as most providers request. our time prior to seeing the doctor was almost one and a half hours including arrival early. Spouse and I not happy about that. My spouse went into the exam room..also conversed with dr and nurse. She filled out this form for me with me at her side.

February 15, 2017

Dr. Elkadi is usually in and out of the room in 30 seconds ... this visit he was very deliberate and lingered to answer all my questions and concerns. Thank you

February 10, 2017

I am thoroughly satisfied with the care I received from Dr.El-kadi and his staff. They were caring, thoughtful, professional, thorough and exemplary in all facets of my care. I could not have been in better hands, and am enjoying a pain free recovery. Thanks so much to Dr. El-Kadi and his staff. I will recommend Dr. El-Kadi to anyone who is in need of spinal surgery. He is exceptional.

February 10, 2017

Would not go any where else at the present time. All my doctors are very good to help me with my needs.

February 10, 2017

I waited 1 hour and 15 minutes past my appointment time to be seen. Unacceptable!

February 08, 2017

I was very satisfied

February 08, 2017

I think that this doctor is an excellent surgeon and very knowledgeable(he operated on me in the past) but I do not like his bed side manner. He spends no time explaining things to you and doesn't seem to like you to ask any questions. He was rushing out the door.
