Thorough and did not push surgery
Self-verified patient of Dr. James Byron B Davidson - Posted on March 21st, 2018
I've been a patient of Dr. Davidson's for several years. I've had three successful spinal surgeries which Davidson performed. When I recently had new spinal damage I was very impressed that Dr Davidson was not quick to recommend surgery. Because of my previous history with him if he had suggested surgery I most likely would have done it without much questioning. However, I was very pleased that he immediately started discussing other options to perhaps avoid surgery. None of the options he suggested actually benefited is practice and I felt like once again I was getting evaluated on what was best for me. It felt good to know that if I were to require surgery again, it would only be after I had tried all other options.

Our first visit. Two people we know recommended him. I did read reviews on other websites and a few made me nervous. We came for my husband and his back problems. He was great and so was his assistant. Everything seemed to be timed right, the flow. The Front Office stuff was friendly. We really liked everyone there. I used to work in the healthcare field for over 30 years. It really helps to have a staff that does care and all. Because if you don't, its time to check out and find another job. This staff wasn't that way at all. Very friendly, caring and funny. Made us feel comfortable. Davidson seems to know what he is talking about etc as does his assistant. His recommendation regarding surgery was quite different from the one that we got in Las Vegas, NV when we were living there. And the doc in Vegas is the top person as he did the plate in my neck eons ago. But for my husband, the one in Vegas said pins and rods. Davidson, however didn't indicate that. I was surprised. He just said just scraping at the bone to ease the pressure, pain it's causing my husband when walking. Made us happy to hear that he didn't see the need for pins and rods in my husbands back. We haven't done a follow up visit yet. So, it remains netural.

There are just so many wonderful things to say about Dr. Davidson that I think I am not allotted the space to say them all. He is the most caring, sweet, understanding, and amazing surgeon with a great bedside manner! He takes the time to listen to you and explain everything and all options there are, no matter how long it takes. I was experiencing migraine headaches for about 1 year and had been to many doctors and tried all kinds of other treatments to no avail. A friend had recommended Dr. Davidson and said that he will be straight with me and is not into cutting if you do not need it. From the minute he walked in the room he made me feel very at ease. We discussed all my options and eventually I had to have surgery (he fused C4-6 in my neck). I woke up from the surgery with barely a headache for the first time in almost a year. He did warn me that there was a chance that I might have to have additional surgery later on down the road because it was worse than he thought once he got in there. Three years later, almost to the day, he fused C7-T1 and once again, woke up with no pain. I was back home and eating within less than 6 hours and didn't need anything but a few Tylenol to take the edge off. His staff is also incredible too! Joe is also amazing and a very skilled surgeon. He assisted Dr. Davidson with both of my surgeries. I also saw Joe on some of my appointments in Dr Davidson's absences. Linda is the BOMB! I do not know how she does it but she keeps all the medical paperwork in line for all those patients. I have, and will continue to recommend Dr. Davidson to anyone who is in pain! Thanks Doc for all you do and have done!
This Dr. Totally destroyed my life !

After doing surgery on me, he left me with dropped foot in both feet, and destroyed the nerves controlling my balance, leaving me unable to walk !
Good Doctor, Bad Staff

Found Dr. Davidson knowledgeable, but not his staff at his Clearwater Office. They took unnecessary X-Rays when I brought films with me, was not aware I was there for an Auto Accident, and could not even get my Insurance information right!

Dr Davidson did my back surgery in 2004 during his fellowship at Florida Spine Institue. I relocated to South Florida and would travel 4 hrs back to Clearwater for office visit with Dr D. The best Dr I have ever seen throughout my adult life. 100% or more with bedside manners and the time he spends explaining things to you.
