Horrible surgeon!! Caused severe infection in my sister's back. It was impossible to get an appointment with this doctor post-op. Multiple visits to the ER were required. Never did he come and do rounds while she was admitted to the hospital. When he finally did see her he basically said it was all her fault, went back into the surgery site and when he comes out he is rude, short and tells the family to fire him, that he wants to be fired. We would except no other doctor wants to clean up the mess he made. This doctor is not recommended!!

THis surgeon is the best at what he does. WE heard this from at least 10 people from the community, other physicians, and nurses. I know many Dr.'s send family to him. Yes, he is extremely quick and sometimes hard to get a word in. Hes quick and to the point--but when it comes to neurosurgery--I much rather have the best hands verus bedside personailty. And he was never that bad with bedside like I heard--he was actually very sympathetic with our case, and knew he wanted what was the best medically. Just be ready for him to be quick and have questions ready.WE don't know what we would have done without him!!

Ignorant assumptions recorded. Damaged my spinal cord or missed the damage. Operation 11 years ago to repair membrane, clean up debris and fixate cord without instrumentation. Assumed I was an alcoholic (no) , complained that he could not examine at pre-op as 'patient not co-operative'. I had 9 disks, skull fracture, crush injury, pain. He wanted a closer look at blackened closed eyes. Operation record with voltage records claimed 'no cord damage' which was not correct per exams and my statements when I regained my reason.

Dr. M. Hertzel Soumekh is a brilliant neurosurgeon and diagnostician. He is incredibly hardworking and devoted to healing. He is very careful and precise. I recommend him without any reservation. He saved me from loosing my legs. I am walking because of him. He however does not have a good bedside manner. He is direct,a bit impatient but very professional. He will not hold your hand or waste time trying to reassure you. But he will do whatever he can to help you. He is the neurosurgeon other doctors go to when they need surgery. He is the best! God bless him!
