Ratings for Dr. Rajesh K. Bindal
I went to Dr Bindal and he wanted to fuse 5 levels in my neck. I was not about to do that. I found another Dr at Methodist who cared about my outcome and quality of life. Cech did a bilateral Laminectomy and Foraminotomy, on C2-C6. Do not let a doctor fuse your neck or back for a pinched nerve or herniated disc. They bank a lot of money on these procedures that are 95% of the time unnecessary and leave you with long term affects. The fused disc eventually where is down the vertebrae above and below resulting in additional fusions later in life
Such a nice doctor. I was referred to Dr. Bindal for a pinched nerve in my back. I was having the most awful pain and weakness too. He sent me for tests and figured out the problem right away. I had surgery and it went so well. I feel great now and have my life back!
Unethical. Terrible. Disgusting. Referred by Pankiewicz. Waited over 3 hours. Forced to submit to lab test for meds. I gave them a complete list. Guess they didn't believe me. Told I would get bill from a lab, they didn't know how much. MRI's show severe cervical spinal stenosis. He said I have degenerative arthritis. Would not allow any questions. He just walked out. That cost me $412. I have no insurance. Now wants more money for my records.
Dr. Bindal is an exceptional nuerosurgeon. This was my third spinal surgery. Dr. Bindal recommended a laminectomy vs additional fusion and I am glad that he did. Dr. Bindal is extremely knowledgeable, has excellent bedside manners and just makes you feel at ease. He answered all my questions. I knew I was in good hands for the surgery and had no fear going into the procedure. My only negative comment is that you need to be prepared to wait when you have an appointment but it worth your time as you will be speaking with a suberb surgeon. I would recommend Dr. Bindall without hesitation - he is the best of the best, techically, and as a person who truly care about you.
Great doctor. Other surgeon recommended lower back fusion surgery, which scared me. I came to Dr. Bindal for a second opinion. He told me to avoid fusion and just do a minimally invasive laminectomy. I agreed. I did great! Fast recovery and back to work in 1 week. The other guy said it would take 2 months! I so glad I came to Dr. Bindal.
