Ratings for Dr. Gert Tollesson
Dr Gert Tollesson - operated on my Cervical Spine C3 C4 C5 and C6 - 2013. Bedside Manner 100% Caring 100% was surprised with a follow up call at home from Dr Tollesson a week or so after the surgery. Brilliant Surgeon an all round good bloke.
Thank you to all the staff & Gert . I am finally able to go about a normal day without the use of pain killers.What an amazing difference with better movement after a fusion than I had previously from a laminectomy.. I was belated when Gert said" I can fix u ." For those considering a fusion it is a long road to recovery but the benifits are well worth it .
Dr Gert Tollesson is simply one of the warmest and sincerest Neurosurgeons I've had the pleasure of meeting. His bedside manner is calm and friendly. He makes you feel as though you are his only patient and he's an exceptionally skilled neurosurgeon. He sets an incredibly high standard that quite frankly and sadly puts many medical professionals to shame. He was meticulous during the surgery and the outcome superb. Dr Tollesson my wife and I cannot thank you enough. You're decades of study, specialist training and time away from your family are monumental sacrifices. Please know that we are eternally grateful for your dedication and care during a dark period in our lives. You are a wonderful man. Thank you. John Jennings
Dr Gert Tollesson is absolutely amazing and changed my life for the absolute best. Having fused my neck at c5c6+c6c7 after my artery was being pinched and already having both shoulders, both elbows and both wrists operated on after a ladder slip on a naval ship, I am now the fittest that I have ever been, I can now weight train a nd have recently conquered the pyramid climb in Cairns. Doc Tollesson you are an awesome and amazing Neurosurgeon - well done. I have no hesitation in recomending you to my colleagues in similar circumstances.
Had L5 s1 L4 L3 multi-fusion and still in severe pain and now seems very un interested in my care. Answers text msg during my appt which I found very unprofessional after being recommenend him as myself and other friends have all had failed results in the spinal fusions and left unable to work!!
I happily would...and do recommend Dr Gert Tollesson to my family and friends. I was unable to sit without severe pain for a very long time. Dr Tollesson fully explained his findings and I underwent further investigations to confirm these findings. I am now over six months into my recovery and my life has returned to "normal". Thank you to Dr Tollesson.
