Dr Tomecek is the best of the best. I wish I had found him before my first surgery but he’s slowly improving my quality of life. I will recommend him to everyone who needs an excellent neurosurgeon.

Dr Thambuswamy was incredible in my opinion. I went in to discuss a particular surgery and he found something unrelated that took precedence that I wouldn't have thought to much about and immediately took action to fix the issue that could potentially paralyze me. I am very thankful for the awesome bedside manner in which he conducted that made me feel like I was important, not just another patient. Surgery for two things are in the works to give me a better life. Thank You Dr. Thambuswamy, I know its not what we had planned but thank you, I appreciate being treated like an important person and you taking the time to answer any and all of my questions. Dr T. made me feel extremely comfortable in a very uncomfortable situation. I couldn't ask for anything better.

Dr. Thambuswamy is that rare physician who combines his skill as a superior technical surgeon with an equally highly developed abiity to communicate with patients at an appropriate level to assure that even the most detailed concepts are grasped by them in order to give them the knowledge necessary to make the most important decisions. He devotes whatever time is needed to outline patients' conditions and needs in order that they proceed into their doctor-patient relationship with a thorough understanding of all concepts, processes, procedures, and information pertaining to their own situation and condition. I have undergone one dozen spinal surgeries at all levels since 1969, and I have never been cared for by a neurosurgeon with abilities or skills equal to those of Dr.Thambuswamy.

I met with Dr Harwell today for a pre-surgery conference. He was very thorough and spoke where both my wife and I could understand. Both of us were well pleased.
