I tried to get an appointment this year but because I had to cancel last year for a reason I was denied care permanently. How can any doctor deny care?
He is a GREAT DOCTOR! He determined my problem quickly. He was very informative about his recommended procedure. Surgery was done promptly (no long wait for a surgery date). He did a wonderful job. I walked out with none of the pain that had caused me so many problems. I am so grateful to him. I recommend him to all my friends. It is surprising how many people have back pain.
He's very down to earth, speaks to you in lay terms not all medical, puts your mind at ease. Kind and caring.
I was truly blessed to find Dr. Coran. I have had previous back surgeries with little success. Dr. Coran was thorough, caring, and listened to my concerns. He tried several options before recommending surgery. I had surgery 7 weeks ago and have NEVER felt better. This is the first time I have been pain-free in 20 years. Dr. Coran has given me my full life back. I recommend him to anyone without hesitation. He listens and does what is best for you.
My pain levels are lower than they have been in 15 years. Excellent quality!
I would definitely recommend Dr. Coran. I had a large herniated disk which was making my life miserable, the pain was awful. It required surgery and as soon as I woke up from surgery it was an amazing relief. Everything went great and I feel wonderful. Dr. Coran, Gina his nurse and everyone in the office was extremely helpful, professional and kind.
I was referred to Dr.Coran by another orthopedic surgeon because of the nature of procedure. I needed both anterior and posterior surgery to fuse C-3-5. As it turned out I needed three surgeries. After the first surgery he did not like the position of hardware . He is a perfectionist and redid the first surgery before he proceeded to the posterior. The important thing is that I am pain free and can resume my activities which include picking up my young grandchildren. I wish he could fix my other bones and joints.
So happy now that I'm pain free! Saw Dr. Coran for bulging discs, and followed his recommendation for physical therapy (which worked wonders) and cortisone injection. Would definitely recommend Dr. Coran to friends and family:-)
I had to wait 6 weeks for first appointment. Was hoping for less. Others were excellent.
Dr. Coran and his staff are fabulous! They have changed my life.
He did a great job on my back surgery. Felt relief after the first day. His entire staff is great and caring.
I have never been seen by Dr. Coran but tried to make an appointment with him. I called twice. The stuff said they would give me a call back and guess what? They never did!
I would give Dr Coran an AAA across the board from initial to last visit you cant go wrong.
I would absolutely and do recommend Dr. david Coran to anyone who is in need of an impeccable Doctor and Surgeon. Dr. Coran performed two surgeries on my upper back and did not only help me , he healed me. My case was a difficult one and he as well as his staff were unmatched in their profession. Courteous, prompt, accurate and excellent care all the way around from my office visit all the way to my post surgery follow up. Amazing team. Thank you Dr. Coran !
Words will never explain my gratitude to Dr. Coran. He truly saved my life. He's compassionate, thorough and thinks about each case even while at home. I would highly recommend him to everyone.
Not sure anyone really likes going to the doctor, but if they were all like Dr. Coran it would not be an issue. My experience with Dr. Coran was nothing like I have ever experienced with another physician. He is always pleasant, listens to what I have to say and then spends time examining me. After this has occurred, Dr. Coran explained exactly what was going on and laid out the plan of attack. Never feeling rushed , Dr. Coran not only got me back on my feet, but his follow up skills were very surprising. I am 100% today and Dr. Coran made the whole experience something I would not mind doing again (funny saying that about going to the dr.).
I have been a patient of Dr Coran for several years. I can say without a doubt that because of his sincere caring and expertise I will be able to live a normal life. Dr Coran is very patient and will explain everything thoroughly which helped with my recovery. In my experience I rate him as the best. His office staff is very knowledgeable, kind and caring. I will continue to recommend Dr Coran and his staff to anyone.
Dr. Coran has no peers; he is at the top of his specialty. A master at his profession; he is the stradivarius of violins.
Dr. Coran is an excellent doctor, very caring and I call him 'My Miracle Worker'. I suffered with back and leg pain for over 10 years, and tried everything. Dr. Corans micro lumbar surgery and disc fusion has taken all my pain away. The staff at his clinic are WONDERFUL!!!! I miss not seeing all of them, but I have NO Pain, which was the goal!!!
I can't say enough about Dr. Coran he is kind and patient with you and any question you have he explains in terms that you will under stand and never speak over your under standing. I referred a friend to Dr. Coran and she saw him and was glade she did she referrers people to him as well as I. I can't thank him enough for all he has done for me and my family. Thank you so much for your time and your help. You are a Blessing
Several prospective surgeons who had reviewed my MRI had suggested a minimally invasive procedure for my L4-5 fusion and disc replacement. Dr. Coran, who also does this procedure, advised against it fearing it would not provide the best long term solution. I chose Dr. Coran as my surgeon because I had confidence in his diagnosis and he was willing to be honest with me despite the fact that traditional open back surgery is more complicated and requires a longer recovery time. I am currently in my fourth post-op recovery month and feel strongly that I made the right choice for both surgeon and procedure. Follow up visits have been helpful and informative. I would highly recommend Dr. Coran for any surgical procedure of this kind.
In 2005 I had back surgery with Dr. Coran. I had a fusion S 1 L5 L4. I couldn't walk more than a 100 ft. with out having to sit down. Had surgery . Didn't know what to expect when I woke up. My wife was A SNICU nurse at the time and she asked everybody who they thought was the best. Dr. Coran and another Dr. were mentioned. Saw the other 1st and his manner about how great he was sucked. But to his good, he ordered all the tests and I had them sent to Dr. Coran. The initial appointment can take a bit with Dr. Coran as he is one of the best and human. He gets time off too. We set a date and had surgery about 4 weeks later. as I said I didn't know what to expect when I woke up. Next day I was up and waking pain free other than incision. Dr. Coran told me if I was active I might need surgery again one day. Well almost 9 years later I need to have a fusion S1 L5 L4 L3. Now wife was an X wife. I stilled called her and it came back that I still wanted Dr. Coran. This time I couldn't sit. Well I'm sitting here typing this. All the old hardware had to come out and new put in. X came to see me and let me know how serious this operation was. I told her I knew but I knew how I came out of it the last time. I'm doing well. If you don't care for Dr. Coran, you at least have to have someone who only does spines. not a brain today and a spine tomorrow. Have two friends that went that other route and they aren't doing well at all. And his staff! Gina, Karie and Karen make you feel very much at ease. Thanks to everyone. P.S I'm 60 this year and going to try break dancing, Just kidding Dr. Coran.
All around Great Surgeon.
I have had chronic back pain for over 10 years. In fact I saw Dr Coran 10 yrs ago and was impressed with his professionalism and expertise. I have known 3 people who had surgery by him and results were good. Recently I was in a car accident and my back pain was exacerbated. I called to get an appt and was told that Dr Coran will not see me because I was in a car accident. I explained that my health insurance will be paying for this. The accident was my fault and there are no lawyers involved. I was told it was office policy that Dr Coran will not see anyone who has had a car accident. The office staff could not explain the rationale and were very rude. I asked to have Dr Coran call me back but that never happened. The MD may be good, but you don't want to deal with his staff.
Dear patient, I am so sorry about your recent experience with our office and staff. Regardless of how busy our office is this time of year, that is no excuse for rudeness or lack of response. And to be quite honest, I do not remember getting the message for Dr. Coran to return your call. Again, not an excuse for our staff. Just a reason for the lack of Dr. Coran's personal response to your issue. I can certainly look into this further if you'd like. I may not have the answer that you want, but I can assure you I'll get an answer with a reasonable explanation for you. My name is Carrie, I'm Dr. Coran's assistant in the OR. My work phone is 414-817-3959. Please leave a message and I'll get back to you in a few days. I'm not in the office everyday as I do work with him in surgery. Happy Holidays
I have had dr coran for12 years and he has done several surgeries on me and all were very good his bedside manner is excellent, his office staff is really great friendly professional I would recommend them to anyone who needs spinal or neck surgery to see him he explains all he is going to do and you have no surprises
I herniated a disc in my neck and it was recommended that I see Dr. Coran. He was very kind and professional. I was able to have my tests done quickly and he immediately followed up with me. I would highly recommend him! He is the best!!
I HAVE HAD DR.CORAN FOR MANY YEARS AND I HAVE NEVER HAD SUCH A CARING AND COMPASSIONATE DR, AND HE HAS A WONDERFUL BEDSIDE MANNER AND HIS STAFF IS AWESOME.
Did not follow up after insurance denied his request for surgery due to lack of testing.
he had been my dr for a few yrs.he did my spinal surgery,about a yr later i was in alot of pain,i made the appt 3 months before.we were having alot of money issues.i wrote the clinic prior to the appt saying we were having money issues and would pay our balance in payments .i pd the bill far down,the balance i owed was 112.78.because the appt.was made several months priorto the appt and noone had callrd ,i assumed everything was fine.i get to the appt.i was in severe pain and was looking forward to the appt so he could help me with the pain.but i was shocked at what happened.HE REFUSED TO SEE ME BECAUSE I OWED HIM 112.78.I LEFT UPSET AND IN ALOT OF PAIN
Dr. Coran has been my lifesaver for many years- because of his talent and superb skills- I am working full time and enjoying every day of my life. He has always taken the time to really listen to my "aches and pains" and takes the problem to heart to figure out what I needed to have done or where to go. I also appreciate the fact that he is willing to try alternatives to Surgery. But as my surgeon he has been OUTSTANDING. I would be happy to yell it to the world if I could.
