"I had two other opinions from orthopedic surgeons but decided that I wanted one more with a neurosurgeon. Dr. Subbaiah was highly recommended. I was very impressed with his patience when explaining the ACDF surgery plus he even discovered a problem with a soon-to-be herniated disc (which the previous surgeon didn’t pick up on). He has a calming bedside manner which helped me to not feel so anxious! I had the surgery 5 weeks ago & am coming along nicely. Pain has diminished considerably. I would highly recommend Dr. Subbaiah to anyone having cervical spine issues!! He’s an excellent surgeon & a compassionate person!" - JA
