He has his butt covered no malpractice suites due to being in bed with all Attorneys in Las Vegas he put my hardware in crooked screw broke he was great up till the surgery then his bedside manner compley changed and he showed his true self
cervical 3 thru 5 fusion resulted in total resolution of chronic cervical pain and headaches which I had endured for 4 or 5 years prior. Can not put a value on correct diagnosis and follow thru treatment. Excellent staff and care post-surgical - no complications. Highly recommend this Doctor
He was two hours late and short. Never disused or looked at my MRI white I was there. I don't trust him or his judgement.
I was on the table waiting to have the meds pushed when Dr Kabins was called to help on a multi car Mva with trauma to the spines of four of the passengers.I was rescheduled and had a very successful cervical fusion .0ver 10 years have past and I am still enjoying painfree life ,use of my hands and arms.i was referred by another client while waiting in the office of my attorney ,A Ganz of Ganz and Hauf.She had a MAJOR surgery due to a major MVA and was feeling great when we talked so I made my appointment .Never a regret and now I am having Low back issues ,I am going to contact Dr Kabins for his opinion and suggestions.Those people who voiced opinions of "long waits",have no idea what this man goes through on a daily basis.He cares SO MUCH for his patients ,he cannot say no and helps other Drs ,students and patients .Ill wait as many hours as it takes for a good Doc,I can tell you names of others that I wont wait 5 minutes,Dr Kabins is the ONLY Doc that will open my spine.
Best back surgeon in NV, and probably a number of other states.
Dr. Mark Kabins took time to explain everything I needed to know about my options for my back. I first had a micro discectomy that was a 100 percent successful for the pain I was suffering in my left leg. I suffered from disk collapse in my lower back which was causing me extreme pain. I had multilevel bone fusion. Once again I'm pain free and couldn't be more happy with the results. I couldn't imagine going to any one else. Truly the best surgeon. Thanks again Dr. Kabins!
I've been seeing Dr Kabins for my LBP. The wait time is horrible. poor management on getting my test scheduled. I still have doubts on getting any surgery for my back. Conservative treatments still works at this time.
This surgeon knew that he made a mistake on my loved one when operated on my family member's back. My family member now has to deal with problems concerning his hands, feet and has erectile dysfunction. This has been impactful to our relationship in trying to cope. Initially his bedside manner was very caring however the follow up appointments began to take a turn with him not being as interested in what my boyfriend shared during the visits. We soon discovered why as we began to see the results in the damage done. Knowing that he continues to practice is upsetting as we would not want anyone to go through this experience.
Surgery went very well, Dr Kabins informed me of everything that happened and what to expect. Good bedside manner, excellent followup.
"Very satisfied. Returned to normal live after surgery. Thank you Dr. Kabins."
I had been seeing a neurologist for over 2 years who was not correctly assessing my problem. After obtaining a current MRI, Dr Kabins correctly diagnosed my problem and gave me all the options available. He worked with my insurance to make sure that I was covered and my Employer's Disability Department to make sure I got the time I needed for recovery after surgery. I was VERY happy with the results. NO MORE CHRONIC PAIN. Every aspect of my contact with him and his helpful friendly staff was exceptional. He really cares about you as a person and works with your primary Doctor to make sure you are taken care of before, during and after. He covers all the bases with aftercare. I work in the health care field and had heard horror stories about botched procedures for over 20 years. I was terrified initially, but greatly reassured by a former patient & the Doctor's demeanor, experience and credentials that he was the best Doctor I could possibly find. Extremely happy in all respects !!
Dr.Kabins did my husbands back surgery. My husband feels 100% better. We couldn't ask for more.
Dr. Kabins put my spine back together when all the other Doctors told me I would never walk again! He did a fully spine surgery on me and I'm still walking sixteen years later!Thanks to a wounderful Doctor
Dr. Kabins put my broken back together in 1996 when most docters said I would never walk again! Thanks to him I'm still walking and it's bee ...
Had both neck and low back fusions in 2006. The very first visit he seemed to be caring and through but after that his bedside manner and concern seemed to slip. My sister had taken me in for a follow-up after my second surgery and afterwords her opinion of him was not good at all. I had been having problems with my right leg and foot after the low back surgery and still do to this day but when I had mentioned it to him he just shrugged it off as unimportant. My neck surgery went very well and is still good. After I had stopped going to him I had heard about all his legal dealings and chalked up his lack of concern and lousy bedside manner to his personal problems. I wish i had known at the time of all his personal problems as I would have gone to someone else. Having major surgeries such as the type he performs requires a clear mind and conscience. I always check into the dr's I see now. Also, the office waits were much more than an hour 99% of the time. It's not much fun when your in there for a follow-up just after you've had your surgery. Wish I had more positive comments for those of you in need.
I had cervical fusions done by this Dr. and I was one of the unfortunate ones that waited in the hospital for him to come back and do the surgeries that were scheduled in advance and then he had many surgeries backed up waiting for him to return while he went to supposedly testify in court. I have suffered ever since then I told him on more than one of my visits after the surgery that I was not doing well. Now I just had my third neck surgery and thanks to this Dr. I will never be the same. The wait is pure nonsense for a visit that is a fact just like the news reported it is the facts and he is not in the business to help people it is the money I know of at least 4 other people that he has left damaged.
he is one of the best dr.s I have seen. The wait time can be a little long , but if he is running behind his staff will take your number and you can go have lunch or shop and they will call you to come back so you are not sitting there all day. He did a GREAT job on my back and I will not let anyone but him work on my spine again.
I would highly recommend Dr. Kabins, and I have to 5 friends who all used him for surgery. I can't say enough about the time and care he gave me during my surgery. He is truly a great Doctor and wonderful person.
Dr. Kabins performed fusion on my lower back 10 yrs ago in 2001. I am now 59 yrs old and just started golfing. I thank him for giving me a basically my life back, the surgery turned out much better than I could ever have imagined and have been able to do many things that I couldnt have before
I would never recommend this butcher to anyone. He fused my back and I still have the same pain as before just now I have metal in me and now the dr. will not do anymore to try and fix the problem. Very unprofessional. Not a doctor to see!!!
Finally someone who would listen to me. I did wait a long time,but it was worth it. Nice to be able to watch a good movie while waiting. Dr. Kabins gave me his full attention and wanted to help me.He even called me in the evening when I left a message for him with more questions. Thank you Doc.
I had two appointments with this man. Both times I had to wait over 4 hours for my appointment. He misdiagnosed part of my problem (the other was apparent and I could have found it.) He ran in and out of the exam room so quick you couldn't get a question in. I don't see how anyone can say this man is worth a spit as a doctor.
Dr. Kabins has operated on my neck and spine and he is a caring/skilled Doctor. Follow-up visits have always been good. In the Cedar City location there is a wait, but you can go shopping, home and they will call you when ready. This Doctor is worth the wait!
Dr Kabins has operated on my spine twice in the past 2 years. He is simply the BEST there is. There might be a wait to see the Doctor, because he is in such demand, but if you want fast food you should go to McDonalds. He is precise and does a through job. His bedside manner is excellent! He is a very caring physician.
WAITING FOR 5 HOURS AFTER A CONFIRMED APPOINTMENT TO SEE THE DOCTOR IS TOTALLY UNACCAEPTABLE. WHY BOOK PATIENTS WHEN YOU KNOW YOU CANNOT SEE THEM IN A TIMELY FASHION?
Dr. Kabins is top notch. He did a wonderful job on my cervical fusion, his incision was near invisible, and I did not have as much as a sore throat after my cervical fusion. His surgical skills are great. I trust him completely with slicing and cutting near my spinal cord. I have trusted him with my life and I would do it again! As far as his bedside manner is concerned, he is blunt not much for niceties. But honestly, my husband and I adore him. He has shown me genuine compassion and I love him for taking me out of pain.
After being made to wait for surgery almost 2 years by workers comp Dr. Kabins did a wonderful job with my surgery. He told me of all the risks and possible outcome of the surgery. While I do have some limitations the overall results are far better than I expected.
