I saw Dr Singh for several months with horrible back and hip pain. He told me that it was all in my head and sent me to pt. Everything became worse. He told me I was depressed. I continued with pt. After he released me back to work and I could still barely walk I went to 2 different doctors on my own. The new back doctor looked at the same MRI and knew exactly where and why I was having pain and the hip doctor did an MRI of my hip and found a bad labral tear that required surgery. Now the disc that he didnt see a problem with is completely herniated. He didnt listen to me he only went off of the MRI report. I dealt with terrible pain for month longer that I should have and ended up completely herniation my L2. It was a TERRIBLE experience to be belittled and treated so terribly. I would not recommend him unless you have an extremely obvious injury.

Not sure where these reviews are coming from. I chose Dr. Singh and his team after he examined me for the insurance company. He did my surgery and I am back at work for UPS. If you dont need surgery he will tell you so. In my case he told the insurance company i needed a microscopic diskectomy. I chose him after my adjustor told me i could treat with anyone i liked. And his PA Chris was amazing. He is definitely a professional and top notch. Rush and Dr. Singh and his team are ranked tops in the country. He definitely is a professional

BEWARE!! This so-called doctor is an insurance QUAK. He is a shill for insurance companies to hand out bogus fake IME reports, to stop your compensation. Be forewarned and take the proper steps if you have to see this quak for an IME exam. E.G. Have a witness and record exam. I'm amazed this guy still has his medical license?

I have had three of my family members had surgery with Dr. singh. Two had them done as an outpatient and one family member needed to be done at Rush. Dr. Singh fixed a failed fusion that was done by an outside spine surgeon who never called my sister in law back. Ive read through most of these reviews. A lot are just plain wrong. GO SEE HIM. you will see he cares. He even tells you when you should NOT have spine surgery because it could make your condition worse. How many spine surgeons do you meet that tell you not to have surgery? He is definitely not looking to make money but rather to make people better!

AMAZING experience.... Flew in from Naples Florida to have my spinal fusion done minimally invasive. I had it done on a friday and was back at home in florida on Monday! There are about 15 of us from Naples that have travelled to see Dr. Singh and his team. So happy been in pain for 15 years.... Feel like Tiger Woods! I am itching to get back on the golf course and its only been 4 weeks!
