I was referred to Dr. Reid by my chiropractor after she had done all she could do for my neck pain. After getting an MRI to verify that I had two herniated cervical discs in my neck, Dr. Reid confirmed my chiropractor's diagnosis and immediately scheduled me for same day surgery at UT. Dr. Reid is amiable and a straight-shooter. He gets the job done efficiently and quickly whether that is in talking to you in the examination room or putting his 30+ years experience to work in the surgery room. If you require someone to baby you about your pain, he is not the surgeon for you. If you want relief from your pain, he's the best around.
Dr. Reid has operated on my neck three times, in 1991, 1995, and 2010. This guy is fantastic. He is VERY straight forward and to the point, which I really like. You can tell that he is very competent and confident by his attitude. I am COMPLETELY satisfied with his work for over 22 years. No, he is not a sympathetic, hold-your-hand type of guy. But if you want a SUPER competent neurosurgeon, this is your man.
Dr Reid is a brain and spine surgeon not a family physician that gives you 10-15 minutes to whine and cry about your issues. He's very "matter of fact" and Straight to the point. If he can help you SURGICALLY he will offer it to you with no guarantees. If you are going in for back pain or back problems, he is very straight forward and "tells you like it is". He is not going to hold your hand nor give you any false hope. He'll be the first to tell you there is no quick fix for back pain or back problems.. His job as a surgeon is to correct the problem even if it doesn't "fix" the pain. So if you are looking for a doctor to "sugar coat" things, avoid Dr Reid. If you want a proven surgeon with 30+ yrs of surgical experience then Dr Reid is the doctor for you. Just remember, there is not a spine doctor that can guarantee you'll be pain free from surgery. One final thing, just because you have back pain, doesn't mean he will offer you surgery. One final thing, he's been practicing for over 30 yrs, he doesn't need your money. I highly recommend him as a surgeon.
