I had a brain injury accident (Emergency) He pronounce me brain dead without any action being done by him immediately when I came out from the emergency room.

He does not care about the patient's family or being sympathetic. He announced that to my family that I am not surviving and brain dead at the Hallway of the hospital in front of my parents with my very young niece (9 year old)

Questionable

Found it very hard to believe that he let me leave his office in the condition I'm in with my Cervical Spine. Knowing the severity he should have sent me by transport to USC, or UCLA, where he referred me.

Absolutely the best Neurosurgeon

Doctor Liker is an expert when dealing with brain and spinal surgery. He is conservative and does not push unesesary surgeries. In addition he referred me and consistent with ordering all of the necessary test to confirm the diagnosis. He will try less evasive procedures prior to rushing into surgery. He takes as much time with each patient so we are educated with all options to treat the source of pain and suffering, with that said the wait in the office can be a little longer than expected. Trust me the wait is well worth it. He has impeccable bed side manner. He preformed three of my five back surgeries. Dr. Liker knowledgeable of the latest and greatest procedures. I highly recommend him and his staff to anyone who has brain and/or spinal injuries.

Gifted neurosurgeon

Dr. Mark Liker is a fantastic neurosurgeon. In 2007, he performed an artificial disc replacement at the L-5, S1. Within a few weeks I was up and moving, pain free. In 2015, I fell down a cliff, injuring my low back. My primary care physician sent me to an orthopedic dr for therapy. For over 14 months I lived with the horrid sciatica pain. Countless mri's, X-rays and ct scans and the ortho could not figure out what was causing the problem. The imaging views were unable to pinpoint the problem due to the metallic disc in my back. I finally made an appointment to see Dr Liker. He ordered a nuclear test which showed abnormalities on the left side of my low back, canal issues. A few months late he performed a semi, hemi surgery and guess what? The sciatic pain disappeared. I cannot say enough about Dr. Liker. He is pleasant, Funny but most importantly, extremely knowledgeable. I have referred many of my friends to him and he will be the only doctor who touches my back or neck. Sometimes the waiting can be annoying but Dr Liker is well worth the wait. I have a lot of faith in this doctors abilities and he is well known throughout the country as one of the top neurosurgeons in the country.
