Ratings for Dr. Charles B. Stillerman
Dr. Stillerman is an amazing surgeon. He was the on call surgeon when my boyfriend was brought into the trauma center, after suffering a bad fall. We could not have chosen a better doctor if we had had the time to do so. His bed side manner was incredible. We were in a horrible situation, but he put both myself and boyfriend at ease. He did not force anything and when we asked what he would do if it was one of his children, he answered truthfully. During the post surgery follow up, he made sure to visit and send his staff up to the room numerous times, and was always engaging with me and my boyfriend. Dr. Stillerman was very caring and personable towards us and we could not have anymore positive things to say about him or his staff. We have recommended him to everyone we meet. Thank you is not enough when it comes to thanking him. My boyfriend followed everything Dr. Stillerman said and his recovery has been great.
I was on my way to work and was in a very serious, life threatening car accident. I was life flighted to Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh, PA, December 18, 1990, the morning before my 25th birthday. Dr. Stillerman completed a Lumbar Fusion, which was necessary, that I believe had never been done before. I 24 years later, have done great. I have never had back pain other than during my pregnancy, which was essentially to be expected. I am active and live a full life. Thank you Dr. Stillerman, and I feel blessed that I was taken to the right place at the right time, where there was a doctor who was knowledgeable and able to treat my injury in a successful manner. If you happen to read this, I want you to know that I will never forget your name and thank you for all that you did for me during that critical time in my life.
I absolutely trust Dr. Stillerman with my life. I entrust his expert advice and recommendations. After 15 or 20 years of cervical problems, this is the first Doctor I returned to after suggestion of surgery. He's easy to talk with and down to earth but don't be fooled, he comes highly recommend.
I was involved in a motorcycle accident in 2006 which left me paralyzed from the neck down. Dr stillerman was honest and upfront with my family. He waited for the spinal swelling to go down and performed surgery to C-3,C-4,and C-5. The surgery was a success and aftercare was very strict at the guidance of Dr. Stillerman. He ensured that I was not remomed from ICU until he was sure that all was OK. After a year of therepy I regained about 75% of my strength and am able to most things I need to do. This man truly saved my life and once you get to know him you understand that he just wants the best for his patients.
I had surgery with Dr. Stillerman when he was at USC University Hospital. I had two very difficult, life threatnening procedures and he was THE BEST!!! I firmly believe that I am here today because of God and Dr. Charlie Stillerman. If necessary, I would travel to Minot to be treated by him.
i have been getting the run around from this office and the pain center with stillerman and co'lon going around and around with them both blaming the other facility for lost charts , notes etc. How long does a person have to sit in pain before they take care of it and someone fess up to their mistake. and get this taken care of.
24 Year old male. FX C5 in 3 places. I am 3 weeks into a one level ACDF on the 5-6 level. Dr Stillerman and his staff were very knowledgeable on all aspects of my injury. Dr. Stillermans confidence can, at times, be mistaken for arrogance. It seemed this way during the beginning of my treatment, but as time passed, I learned he meant no harm by his actions and that his personality was just different than mine. Dr. Stillermans technique is very conservative, longer brace periods, longer recovery time frame and more follow up appointments. He just wants to make sure he has his ducks in a row and that you are good to go before he lets you lose. Post op care was great, him and his staff followed up with me both right after surgery and the next day. Great help! I would recommend him to anyone; staff and Dr. Stillerman himself were very helpful and did a great job on my neck. Zero pain!
