As many have said if you are overweight don't bother with this guy. He spent the whole time of his visit telling me to join a gym and then told me Gold's gym had a special. Since I had already had back surgery a few years back I was looking for another opinion before making my decision. I had seen two doctors prior to my visit and both had reached the same conclusion. Hadley never even discussed my condition with me. It was only as I was leaving he then stated that I may need surgery.
As with many patients of Dr. Hadley's, I have a very complicated spinal disorder. I was told by more than one neurosurgeon that they would not touch my case. When I found Dr. Hadley and he told me he would work with me, I was so grateful. Four surgeries and much work later, I am still able to walk and I have NO doubt that without Dr. Hadley's help, that would not be the case. He started with the least aggressive approach and we worked our way up to a solution that was risky but so worth it. I have now been a patient for 6 years and would never consider trusting my life to anyone else. He has shown me kindness and compassion....and sometimes truth that I might not want to hear! When I was searching for a doctor, I read all the comments, positive and negative, but decided to make my own mind up after meeting Dr. Hadley. I suggest that you do the same.
Dr. Hadley was extremely arrogant when I saw him. He really enjoys hearing himself talk, rather than listening to his patients. I couldn't even speak without him interrupting me . He was useless. He may have been the best in the state at one time, but not anymore - should just retire - likes to hear himself speak - then go teach!!!!! DON'T WAIST YOUR TIME OR MONEY!!!
He was my surgeon back in 2009. Fusion of L5-S1. He had no bedside manners and his staff was rude. My one regret is I wished I had researched more neurosurgeons, but I was told he was the best - NOPE. I traveled over 400 miles to see him, multiple times. The surgery was a FAILED surgery and I had my appliance broke just after 2 months. I did everything as I was told post surgery. From what I was told by other neurosurgeons who gave me second opinions is that my appliance was not put in properly at the correct angles, which is what caused the break. The irony in this is that no attorney would touch a malpractice suite with him - SO BE WARNED. I was 25 at the time of the surgery, 5'5" and weighed 160 lbs yet told I was over weight and that I needed to work out, really? He was no help after the surgery, when the appliance broke and many dollars out of pocket to travel to go see him. WORST EXPERIENCE EVER!!!!!!!! I'm now 5 years post op and STILL dealing with the aftermath of Dr. Hadley. I'm told that if I'm to get pregnant my whole pregnancy will be high risk and on bed rest most of it - due to the botched job. I've been able to only maintain a simple life of living by being on pain killers and lyrica - which is not ideal and I'm trusting in the Lord for my healing. I still do all of my rehab stretching every night and yoga. I wonder how a man can live with himself and not want to take ownership over his wrong doings AND MAKE IT RIGHT!? Put all liability aside - how do you live with yourself? I'm not even 30 yet, for God's sake!!
If you are fat and want to be humiliated, don't go see this arrogant jerk! I had unsuccessful lumbar fusion and went to him for 2nd opinion. Drove over 600 miles just to be told I was fat, I needed to exercise and to take anti-inflammatories. I'm fat because I can't exercise due to the excrutiating pain I'm in idiot! He never once looked at my medical records...says he looked at my films, but I don't know. He maybe spent 5 minutes with me and sent me on my way! Don't waste your time or money!!
I woke up today pain free and with a smile on my face thanks to Dr. Hadley. I was an active 42 year old mother and wife until I suffered a herniated disc in my cervical spine 14 months ago. I tried physical therapy, acupuncture and eventually became a regular at the Pain Clinic waiting for my next facet injection. My days were consumed with chronic pain and my social schedule eventually revolved around my pain meds. 3 weeks ago Dr. Hadley performed ACDF surgery and I woke up free from the headache I suffered with for over a year. I am blessed to have such a kind and caring surgeon who is responsible for giving me my life back.
I've been seeing Dr. Hadley for 3 years now and he has never been rude or arrogant. He is very knowledgeable and concerned about my health. He has always been punctual, goes over every detail, and discusses my condition on my level so I can understand. He answers all my questions. He stated he is NOT God, but he is using his God given talents. He has given me his direct e-mail address and cell number to call if I have any concerns/questions. After 3 years it looks like surgery is due. I have no problems trusting God and Dr. Hadley with this.
I am from Auburn the doctor in Auburn messed me up, not even a year later I am having the surgery again. Dr Hadley saved my life, He is a very kind, honest man! I enjoyed his staff, his team and everybody I had to deal with. I honestly believed he saved my life. I was in pain everyday of my life, did not know where to turn to next. I meet Dr Hadley He was very open in this is what we should do, and assured me he would take excellent care of me . and he did... I do NOT know what I would have done without him and his staff.. I am a young single mother of three children wanting my life back. Thank you in so many ways Dr Hadley for doing that!! I work at a doctors office if anybody ask my opinion, I will refer them to Dr Hadley in a heart beat!!! Thanks again for everything
I am. 38yo RN who had a rare cervical tumor C2-C6. I was very blessed to ave been referred to Dr. Hadley by another MD that he had performed surgery on. Dr. Hadley was awesome! He was honest, up front, kind, and caring! Although I trusted God for healing I know that he used Dr. Hadley as an instrument of healing! Dr. Hadley saved me, he touched my life in such an unforgettable way. I had spent years serving others sometimes without gratitude. I wanted to be one to tell Dr. Hadley Thank You! Thanks for your skill, your talent, your faith, and what you did for me! I plan to make full use of my life. Thank you my friend for fulfilling Gods will in the earth. I am healing and forever humbled and grateful!
Dr. Hadley is the incredibly talented and I would suggest him to anyone and everyone who needs his expertise. I had my neck fused with him and it has been nothing but perfect since having the surgery. I am truly grateful!
