Have you seen Dr. Steven C Fulop?

I had a major fall in 2016, including a TBI. I had seen a few other specialists before I came in for a consult with Dr. Fulop regarding my cervical spine pain. I needed a doctor who was knowledgeable and professional, yet compassionate and sensitive enough to explain things to me in a way I could comprehend. He was excellent. My appointment was over an hour long. A mere three days later I was able to schedule a consult for ACDF surgery with my husband. He spent just as much time with us! I am almost one month past surgery and I have been improving every day. Every AM I wake up with less pain and thank God I made this decision. The entire staff is very friendly. Even the practice's call center talked me through me getting lost on the way there. Impressive.

This young man is an excellent diagnostician as well as a surgeon . I had 2 procedures at SWGH, and they were flawless. He is understanding & compassionate plus thorough. What more can u ask for.

Arrogant little _____. Said I just had natural age progression. Went to a REAL hospital, neurosurgeon who based on MRI's said I had MAJOR herniations in my neck. Had major surgery on my neck for triple level fusion and bone spurs removal. I think Fulop blew me off cause he wasn't experienced enough to do it.

The doctor was very rude. He didn't have a very good bedside manner. I read other similar reviews about him, but didn't think too much about it. Now that I have seen him, those reviews were correct! I would never go see him again, nor recommended him to anyone ever! He has a horrible attitude!

Very bad bed side manor. Very rude doctor. I would never ever go back to him or send anyone to him. He likes to insult people. And never even talked to me about what I was there for.
Not sure you can trust the diagnosis made by him

Dr. Fulop seems to be knowledgeable in issues regarding the spine..I waited over a half an hour to see him--even though I was the only patient in the office..He didn't spend much time with me..Dr. Fulop dismissed my concerns and symptoms as not being spine related..Which, I don't know how he could make a proper diagnosis without doing a neurological exam--or examining me in any way..(Other than the nurse taking my blood pressure)..I'm not sure I would trust him performing a surgery or making an accurate diagnosis..I'm supposed to have a follow up appointment after some imaging studies..But, I'm not sure whether or not I can trust him..
L-O-N-G wait, inaccurate diagnosis

I was very disappointed with this doctor. I waited over an hour to see him and then felt like I was rushed through my appointment. Don't know if it was an off day for him or what but he made me feel like he had better things to do and just wanted to get out of there. Wound up with another doc who made me feel very comfortable and took time to answer all my questions.
Immediately began telling me I needed recom

I went to Dr. Fulop for an cervical discectomy and fusion. He is a very compassionate physician and very knowledgeable. He takes his time with his patients. I have been having a slow recovery and he has been with me all the way. The medical world needs more young physicians like him. I am a nurse, so I know the good and the bad in physicians and he definitely rates in the top of neurosurgeons.

My first initial visit with Dr. Fulop was wonderful. He had an excellent bedside manner and ws very knowledgable and took the extra time to answer every single one of my questions. Trying to schedule a follow-up appointment after my MRI was done was a truly horrible experience. I was given an appointment almost 2 months in the future. When the pain meds he had given me for a herniated disc did not last that long I was told I would have to go to the emergency room and get a refill there. Obviously the er staff was surprised by this, (I did go) and told me they are not a long term care facility. Even though Dr. Fulop had access to my MRI results right away I was still given no other alternative to an almost two month long wait to a follow-up appointment other than the er. I decided to go with another doctor that was not a surgeon who has been able to provide some pain relief with nerve blocks and was able to have three appointments an addition to two nerve blocks done with this new doctor before I was able to get in to see Dr. Fulop. When I finally did have the appointment with him I was with him for less than two minutes after a seven week wait (!) for the appointment and all he told me was he didn't think I was a candidate for surgery and he thought I should seek another doctors opinion and he could refer me to one if need be. Then he asked if he could escort me out. His office staff, Manaar, was the only person who even tried to help me by taking the time to call me after her shift had ended from her cell phone to tell me that the doctor could not see me and to go to the er. And then the er says to go to my doctor for long term care. What a horrible cycle to be caught up in and I will be forever grateful to the staff at the Cleveland Clinic Spinal Institute for all of the work that they were able to do in the wait time just to see Dr. Fulop for a follow-up appointment. Regardless of what may be great knowledge on the subject I would never recommend this doctor if your looking for any kind of help or relief in a timely manner without coming to him through the er.

Steven Fulop did emergency surgery on my father who had a head injury and brain bleed from falling and did an excellent job on saving his life. My father is 80 and had a whole list of issues prior to having this surgery. Thank you Dr. Fulop for your professionalism and dedication to this type of practice.
