08/07/14 5 5 5 5 Dr. Enron performed a craniotomy to fix my hemifacial spasm 2 weeks ago. Beginning with my first visit he explained in detail what was happening and how he would fix it. He was so kind to me and displayed a great sense of humor. I was a ease and had no qualms about the surgery. Of course every thing turned out well. I feel so lucky to have had him for my neurosurgeon as he is the best.  Respond

31/05/13 4 5 5 5 I had to have a craniotomy for hemifacial spasms that had been bothering me for 5 years. Dr. Efron explained in detail how he would fix my problem and what would happen after. He was compassionate, easy to reach by phone or email answered all my questions and was very experienced in this type of operation, which put my mind at ease. He kept a close watch on me after the operation when I was totally helpless. Thanks to him I am able to face people again without the embarrassment of those facial spasms. He is a dedicated neurosurgeon and the best in his profession.

07/04/11 4 4 5 5 BEST neurosurgeon out there! He did my spinal fusion about 12 years agoin NY. I was young and afraid and after seeking numerous opnions I went with him and I'm so glad that I did. He is caring, took the time to explain things and has a great sense of humor! Turns out I need more surgery and I called him in CA (Where he practices now) to ask his opion and he called me back the next morning and spend time on the phone with me and gave me suggestions. AWESOME doctor!  Respond
