BRUCE MCCORMACK, MD - NEUROSPINE INSTITUTE MEDICAL GROUP REVIEWS
Dr. McCormack is a wonderful and skilled surgeon and I'm so happy I chose him for my discectomy. My experience was great, not only with the surgery, which was very successful and I have my life back again, can't thank him enough! But also with his staff and assistant. They are all very responsive and felt supported through the whole process. He has a great bedside manner and answered all my questions and made me feel as calm as can going into something like back surgery. I have so much admiration and gratitude for great surgeons like Dr. McCormack who help so many people, including me, escape what I call 'pain jail'.
Dr. McCormack performed a surgery on my husband’s spine more than 10 years ago. Barely visible 5 inches scar is all what reminds us of that taught time. Thank you Dr. McCormack You make people to be believe in miracles.
All 5 of my spinal surgeries, performed by Dr. McCormack, have had excellent and sustainable results! He is brilliant and candid.

BRIAN T. ANDREWS, MD REVIEWS
Dr. Andrews is a saint. He has operated on me twice. First time was 20+ years ago. Most recently, I was misdiagnosed by another neurosurgeon who recommended invasive surgery (three vertebrae fusion) and in the wrong area. Dr. Andrews did another microdiscectomy that fully resolved my pain and numbness. I am 100% cured. I could not recommend him any more highly.
Have had 3 surgeries with Dr. Andrews and he has done all in a minimally invasive manner. The latest surgery, 2 other surgeons wanted to do a double fusion and he was able to do a minimally invasive approach that left me without any fusion and full mobility. I strongly recommend Dr. Andrews.
I am almost 3 weeks out of surgery with no pain! Dr. Andrews and all of his staff are professional and available to help at all times. I am so grateful to all of them!!.

EDWARD CHANG, MD - UCSF HEALTH REVIEWS
Very happy and thankful I decided to let neurosurgery at UCSF help me with my condition. I was born with epilepsy and had about 6-8 seizures per month with medication at the time of treatment. Dr. Chang and his team provided great service and explained everything thoroughly. After planning and thorough testing I was approved for brain surgery. The first surgery was to do mapping and confirm whether brain surgery would affect speech or memory. Once they collected needed information, it was decided that it was unlikely to affect speech or memory and they performed brain surgery. I have been seizure free for 1 year and my speech and memory was not affected. I am grateful to Dr. Chang and his awesome team for their great work, kind care, and helping me feel safe along the way. Thank you Dr. Chang and your team!
Dr.Chang and staff are incredible. I was a patient of his 3 years ago and he performed brain surgery on me. I had being dealing with an issue that was going to potentially end my career. Dr. Chang was able to perform the surgery with expertise and a few months later I was able to completely return to work and have not had an issue since. I can not say it enough how grateful I am to him and the entire Neuro staff and hospital staff. They truly care and very compassionate.
Dr. Chang and his crew are absolutely amazing. So professional, kind, smart, and genuinely want to help. I couldn’t be more grateful that I was able to get my two-surgery procedure (to locate the problem spot in my brain, then remove it) done by Dr. Chang. Also, my recovery has been great. Very quick and the incision is healing seamlessly. Very beautiful job.
