I would not refer any patients to this neurosurgeon's office. I saw this surgeon for a back pain consultation and treatment in March 2013. He recommended tests and injections right away without taking a through medical history as well as the examination which was performed was brief maybe fifteen minutes. The physician diagnosed me with sacroiliitis which is an inflammation of the sacroiliac joint. He insisted on steroid injections. When I returned the next day to the surgeon for the procedure, afterwards he never explained the exact cause of my back pain or what else needed to be done. Then he walked out of the exam room abruptly. I over heard Dr. Thai telling his office staff to call and cancel all his appointments that day. When I tried to make a follow-up appointment with the doctor, I was told the doctor was on vacation for several weeks. I did not find his staff to be responsive to my medical concerns nor the other patient's needs.

Worth the second opinion consult. I have Kaiser insurance. Got a lot of insight about my spinal stenosis and option after visiting BASIC and Dr. Ty. I'm working on switching my insurance so I can have Dr. Ty as my surgeon. I was highly recommended to see him and I would highly recommend him to anyone!

Took my mom to see him as a second opinion. I really like the fact that he explained things to us and laid out a roadmap of how treatment was going to look for her. He also showed us her films while we were there and explained what was causing her problem. We all appreciated that. The office on campus and jamboree felt like a spa. The whole experience was really good - excellent actually.

Dr Ty is one of the kindest doctors I have ever had, truly listened to my concerns and patiently answered all my questions. He treated me with respect and care and I really appreciate his efforts to treat my sciatica.

I feel really fortunate to have found this clinic. Overall great experience giving the circumstances, knowledgable doctor, and a great PA (Mike Blasko). I'm sending my sister here for her low back problem which is the highest compliment I think I can give them.

Dr. Ty and his office was very knowledgable and helpful. I sought multiple opinions for my herniated disc. I felt that I was teated well by Dr.Ty's clinic and staff. He reviewed and explained my films to me in a way I could understand which I appreciated. He also seems to offer some minimally invasive options that I didn't find anywhere else. After shopping around, I picked Dr. Ty.
