World Class Neurosurgeon

Dr. McCormick is an extremely skillful, knowledgeable, and professional physician. He removed a fairly complicated and an extremely rare tumor from my spine in half the time that everybody predicted. Exclellent results! I feel like I never had this surgery, or the tumor in only 6 weeks postop. Definitely gave me my life back! Would recommed Dr. McCormick to anybody. Excellent office staff too!

SKillful and Successful Treatment of Spinal Stenosis

Dr. McCormick performed extensive surgery on my spine to treat severe stenosis. I later tried to play golf, causing pain in my hip and leg similar to the pain that was eliminated by his surgery. After an MRI of the spine, he recommended checking my hip, and – to my surprise – part of my artificial hip had slipped, requiring a revision by my orthopedist. After that procedure, I feel great overall and deeply grateful to Dr. McCormick and all of his staff and the staff at Columbia Presbyterian.

Outstanding Doctor

I had an excellent experience with Dr. Paul McCormick. I was favorably impressed with him from the day I met him for a consultation in his office all the way through to one yr post surgery visit. Dr. McCormick listens to your issues and answers all questions. He has a fantastic bed side manner during your hospital stay and his staff is warm, caring and very easy to work with. I had a fusion at L5 and S1. I am thrilled to report that I am doing exceptionally well and my life has been restored.

After being diagnosed with a spinal cord tumor, I was fortunate to find Dr. McCormick. Even the local surgeons I saw, all indicated that Dr. McCormick was the surgeon I should have care for me. I am grateful!
