Here's my take on all of this. If you are in that much pain and suffering from a disorder that requires you to need a neurosurgeon, you are not looking for someone to have a cup of coffee or a beer with. You are looking for the most qualified person to be holding that scalpel. And that is what you will get with Dr. Estin. His diagnostic and surgical skills are spot on. When he walks into that OR and you are on the table, you can rest assured that you have the most competent, skilled professional taking your life in his hands. That is what you want. Find a friend to get that coffee with, and walk through his door if you have an unfortunate medical condition that needs the best person to save you. And one more thing, count your blessings if he participates with your insurance plan, or you can be like me; in desperate need of his services, and unable to see him because of a plastic insurance card that doesn't have the right name on it.

Dr. Estin is the absolutely best Surgeon I ever met. He is a caring person (a rarity for surgeons) and spent 8.5 hours reconstructing my cervical spine. Before I met him, I could hardly walk or lift my arms or legs without excruciating pain. After surgery and 3 months in a cervical brace (24 hours a day, except to shower), Dr Estin removed the brace,I turned my head and since then I have been pain free and work out in a gym.

He fix me all all

I went to Dr. Estin on a referral and I am glad I did. He looked at my charts and had me go for a few other tests. Upon going back he gave me my options and explained them very well. He did my surgery and I never felt better. When in his office talking he is very quiet spoken and can have an air of being superior. I will take that I guess especially when he put me back together again. The wait time for him is long or always has been for me.
