Ratings for Dr. Michael V. Hajjar
Had ACDF on c7/t1. Herniated disk. Surgery good. But be sure to not take too many opioid pain pills and get a weaning schedule from the doc. I relied on pain meds too long, tapered down dosage to 1/2 Norco per 4 hours, six weeks after surgery. Then stopped. Had withdrawals for over a week, couldn’t sleep, shaking. Ugh. And be sure to do physical therapy after surgery. Your muscles get really whacked out from guarding against pain. In fact, that pain was probably worse than the surgery pain.
I had an excellent surgical experience with Dr Hajjar and his staff. I had a lower lumbar spinal fusion . Dr hajjar is honest , punctual and extremely intelligent.... I feel so much better after the repairs . He had helped give me my life with mobility and much less pain overall in my spine . I can walk fast again. I can work my job without all the limitations prior to surgery.. all the staff was wonderful, in and out of the Hospital. I'm very grateful:)
I'm in the medical field, neurosurgeon asst. in the 90's. Dr. Hajjar is professional, and I believe the best. Waiting an extra week or so, makes no difference in the outcome. His staff do their job well, answer questions or get the answers before the end of shift. They ALWAYS answer.
I would not trust my life to Dr Hajjar for anything. As noted on 8/25/2011 He will put you off for months then if there is a issue This guy will ignore you and put your life in danger. He caused more damage then he fixed. If think this guy will help you wen somethings wrong Trust me he wont do anything. How he can he even be allowed to do anything.
Dr. Hajjar did surgery on my back last November and I had a great outcome. Feel 100% now. He was quick to the point and a no nonsense type which I like, I was scheduled for surgery in about 2 week from my first appt. Very appreciated as I was in a lot of pain. . I am guessing that his to the point type personality is not what some people want, I liked that most about him. I personally have recommended him to others and would not hesitate to come back to him if the need arises. He is a great surgeon and that is all I wanted or needed.
I have been with Dr Hajjar for many years and have not had any problem with him or his staff. He has done surgery on my back 3 times,and I have been just fine. He is a great man and Doctor I'm sorry some people haven't seen that. I tell everyone that has back problems that he is the one guy that will fix it right.
