Ratings for Dr. Mark N. Hadley
Dr. Handley’s top Priority as a surgeon is the best outcome for his patients whether it be surgical or non-surgical. I went to see Dr. Hadley about pain I was having in my lower back. He listened to my concerns and was very empathic to my needs. Dr. Hadley took the time to explain my situation in full detail treating me as his top priority and never feeling rushed. The outcome of my visit was non-surgical and it was an answer to my prayers. To know that you can go to Dr. Hadley and receive the best outcome without having surgery is comforting. I was overwhelmed by the respect and kindness that I received from Dr Hadley and his team. Thank you, Dr Hadley!
After seeing Dr. Hadley in his office, I knew I was in good hands. His entire team are very caring and make you feel very positive. I came home after surgery feeling amazing, no pain in my back and no numbness in my legs! He even took interest in another medical problem I was having and got me in to see the speciality doctor that I needed that same week. What an amazing Doctor!
The attention, respect, and kindness shown to me by his staff was superior. I was certain that no matter what the outcome, I was under the care of a highly skilled and capable physician who would do whatever was humanly possible to alleviate my problem. I have never felt more cared for and safe throughout this surgical experience. In my view, choosing Dr. Hadley was one of the most pivotal experiences of my life. I recommend him without hesitation.

Dr. Hadley is THE best physician I have ever been treated by. He recently treated me for neck pain I've had for three years, He also treated my husband several months ago for an acute, debilitating and complex cervical compression. I am completely free of the pain in my neck and have been pretty much since the surgery. My husband is well on his way to recovery and also had intense pain immediately relieved by the surgery. We suffered no complications from our surgeries. I fully believe our surgeries were so successful and went so smoothly due to several factors. Dr. Hadley has vast experience and expertise in his field but his concern for his patients having the best possible outcome and his determination to provide his absolute best care for his patients, I feel, are what made our surgeries so successful. His Physicians Assistant and Nurse Practitioner are also very good at what they do and extremely helpful. I was diagnosed with accuracy and precision and all of my questions and concerns were fully addressed. Dr. Hadley is very thorough and detailed and leaves nothing to chance. I also have lumbar pain that he explained may be relieved by strengthening my core with specific exercises. I tried them for a while and he was right. This saved me from having another surgery. I appreciate his honesty. Another surgeon told me I needed surgery for my lower back pain. I feel very fortunate to have found Dr. Hadley and his team not only for my sake but for my husband's as well.
Dr. Hadley is the BEST! He was right on point with his diagnosis and has me in a pain free body after 4 months of constant pain. Him and his staff are so professional but concerning in the way they make sure you are comfortable and understand the diagnosis. My brother had surgery several years ago that Dr. Hadley performed and he highly recommended I use him as well. All of his nurses, his physician assistant, staff and interns were friendly and professional. Dr. Hadley's surgery was successful and the recovery was unbelievably easy. I have totally shocked everyone to how I have recovered and was back to work in just a few days (and in heels). I was diagnosed from a neurologist with a tumor but Dr. Hadley thought I had disc fragmentation. He was correct but I felt secure in whatever he had to surgically do to correct my problem. He takes his time with you in explaining and comforting you in the decision that is best for you. He provides you with his personal email and cell phone number for you to contact him should you have any questions or concerns. There are not enough starts for this superstar in my mind!
We live in Mobile, AL. My daughter, now 24 complained for quite a while about her neck. She constantly felt the need to "pop" her neck, I thought it was a habit. I took her to a chiropractor locally to see if he could give relief. Well next thing we know, she is seeing a neurosurgeon as it was discovered her C1/C2 was unstable. Nothing in the middle connecting one to the other. WHat now I asked the Doctor here in Mobile. Well, he said she needs to have surgery. He said its a rare abnormality. I immediately asked for a recommendation and he said if it were my child, I would take her to Dr. Hadley at UAB. I said I want only the very best and having had her at UAB for heart issues as a child, I knew that HE, Dr. Hadley was the direction that we needed to go. We meet Dr. Hadley and his A+, top notch team and I knew immediately he was the ONLY Doctor I wanted to operate on my precious child! He is such a wonderful compassionate Doctor! He told us exactly what he was going to do. He answered any questions I had matter of factly, which I appreciate! it may not have been what I wanted to hear nor my daughter, but at least he was honest and up front. We knew what to expect. And the morning of her surgery, he spoke to me and my husband and said he prayed to God that morning about my daughter and he may be able to complete her surgery today, but he may have to manipulate her in the halo with traction for a few days to get to the place he needed to attach to at the base of her skull then attach to the C4 to stabilize. So up front, I knew two very important things. #1 -he is a Christian man! #2 -he wasn't going to rush and finish, he was going to take care with my precious child! And guess what!! He was able to successfully complete in one operation! We were elated, and forever grateful and thankful! Thankful to God for putting me in the direction of Dr. Hadley. And thankful to Dr. Hadley for treating my daughter as if she were his child. So when you need a neurosurgeon, Dr. Hadley and his magnificent team is the place to go!
Before finding Dr. Hadley, I was in constant pain. I could only walk for exercise. Six months after having an Anterior Cervical Disk Fusion, I am running 2 miles a day and walking 2 miles a day. I am able to lift weights again and I have lost 25 pounds. I am grateful to Dr. Hadley and his excellent team for giving me a life again. Everyone I came into contact with from the first evaluation to the post op appointment was pleasant and professional. I had to stay overnight at UAB and the service was first class. It was truly the best experience I have ever had in a hospital setting.
I recently had a two level back surgery with Dr. Hadley and after 3 months I'm doing well. I am so glad that I ignored the few negative reviews about him and focused on the positive reviews. I don't understand how anyone can say that he is arrogant and doesn't listen, because he was totally the opposite. He listened to me and really cared about helping me. I've been to doctors who were self-centered and non-caring, and he is certainly not that. I feel that he is a good, intelligent, kind-hearted Godly man, who has definitely been given the gift to heal. I'm glad I went to him and would highly recommend him - 5 stars!
After 2 opinions I visited Dr. Hadley and immediately felt he was the exact doctor I was looking for to perform my lumbar spinal fusion. I appreciated his confidence and no nonsense approach. I already knew what was wrong with my back and what my symptoms were. I needed him to tell me what he would recommend for my particular problem which he did. If I overweight I would certainly expect him to tell me that my weight exacerbates my back problem. That is his role as your physician! I am now 6 weeks postop and completely pain free for the first time in over 2 years! It was comforting to know I could get in touch with him at any time. Thank you Dr Hadley!
In 2010, I was diagnosed with Spinal Stenosis and Spondylolythesis, 40% slippage of the 5th lumbar by a doctor in my home town. She knew I did not want surgery unless it was a have to case. She told me to see Dr. Mark Hadley in Birmingham because he will do and try everything possible before he will do surgery on you. Well that was the kind of doctor I wanted to see. My first visit with Dr. Hadley was exactly as I was told. He confirmed what my other doctor had told me. He was a straight to the point kind of doctor and I like that. I could have taken him wrong when he told me to go workout at the gym and build my core muscles to help hold my slippage of the vertebrae because that was all I had to help hold it in place. He also told me that I could possibly end up with surgery and gave me numbers to get in touch with him if I ever needed him. I did as I was told and stayed out of surgery for five more years. I knew in 2014 that my slippage was possibly worse so I went back to Dr. Hadley, my doctor that I had the most trust in. My slippage had went from 40% to 50% and I was having problems standing in one place. I could walk with no problem but not just stand. I also was having pain down my right leg to my toes. I had to sleep flat of my back because sleeping on sides was too painful. I had my spinal fusion in January 2015. I was immediately pain free. I did as I was told after surgery and am doing great. I am 5 months out and I feel that I actually have my life back. What a blessing Dr. Hadley and his staff has been, not only to me but my entire family. Thank you Dr. Hadley and staff. You simply are the Best☺ May God continue to work through you....The Darby's
