He is very, very good. He did my husbands back surgery, & a friends brain surgery. I have also have a few friends that have used him & they all where very pleased. We have never had any problems with him & his care has always been outstanding.

I wondered about that also so I looked it up:

"A neurosurgeon is a medical specialist who treats diseases and conditions affecting the nervous system, which includes the brain, the spine and spinal cord and the peripheral nerves."

The Doctors website says he treats Brain, Spine and Nerves.

That was next question as I cannot tolerate Bayshore, thanks for info. I tried to get appt. with him but whoever answered the phone said that he would not operate on anyone who had previous back surgery. My problems are with a different disc now so I am considering contacting him again and verifying that I cannot see him.

I had surgery by Dr. Pakzaban about a year ago, the man is brilliant! he is an MIT graduate and a Harvard neurosurgeon. I truly doubt there is another neurosurgeon more qualified in TX than Dr. Pakzaban. My back surgery went smoothly, i woke up pain free, I have not had any problems since, his staff and the nurses were amazing. The folow up was great, it was the best thing I ever did.
Oh, I had several visits to a few other Neurosurgeons in the Medical center, after I finally parked in valet, found the offices and then waited more than an hour after my appointment. I finally saw the neurosurgeon, he was rude, unclean and kept looking at his watch and made me feel like he was doing me a huge favor. I doubt I was able to explain everything, I was basically rushed out so he could get to the next patient. It was like a cattle call!
Oh, and the exam room in his office was filthy! The medical center is not for me, just too gross!

I am really amazed that you had that experience at the Med. Center, I generally will only go to the Med. Center. Dr. Rose at Methodist is the best but is not taking new patients.

I tried Dr. Pakzaban, after hearing good things and for the close proximity even though I find it hard to trust anyone at Bayshore, his receptionist said he would not touch anyone that who had had previous back surgery, bam!

I recently tried to get an appointment with Dr. Pakzaban and it was the worst experience of my enter life. The staff treated me like dirt, their mannerism over the phone was so unprofessional. The office manager named "Stacy" not only lied to me but was also denying that my primary care Dr had even contacted her. When I told them that I would let Dr. Pakzaban know how they treated me, they suddenly stated that their office does not accept referrals from my Primary care Dr. Although my primary care doctor has referred other patients in the past to him. Even my own primary doctors office was surprized by the way they themselves where treated. Dr. Pakzaban's staff denied my request to see the Dr because they did not want me to compalin to the Dr. about his staff. It is appalling that Dr. Pakzaban is unaware that his own staff is making decisions and dictating who Dr. Pakzaban can & can not see. & how they treat new patients. Maybe the Dr. should be allowed to speak with the patient first, so that the patient can infom the Dr. of what is going on in his office. The staff treat new patients like dirt and when the patient informs them that they are being rude and unprofessional, they hang up and then tell them that the doctor will not see them. Although, many positive coments have been said about this particular Dr. I feel that Dr. Pakzaban is probably not aware of how patients truly feel about him or his office because his staff is preventing patients from making any formal complaints to him. So in my opinion, I would never recommended this particular surgeon to anyone just because of the way his staff is dictating who he can see. I think it is immoral and unprofessional. Why are these sort of pratices allowed, doesn't a patient have a recourse , or do we just allow staff to walk over eveyone as if they where gods and untouchable.

I guess I have been lucky that I have not had to go to the doctor in 10 years. I have to be almost dead before I will go to one. I have had bad experiences with doctors in the past with their holier-than-thou attitude. The ones that I have gone to see dollar bill signs coming through the door instead of human beings. The kind that think..."I really don't care if you die...but you had better pay me first". Does anyone remember Dr. Michael Brody?

He was my MD for many years. Do you know what happened to him in October, 1974 or later?

Around 1973 Dr. Brody was involved in a malpractice suit. The suit was brough on by the parents of a baby girl. Something happened and the baby did not receive oxygen and she was brain-damaged. They sued him and Bayshore and they received the highest amount ever awarded in a malpractice suit. After that I heard that his license to practice medicine was revolked.

Thanks for answering. He was supposed to deliver my baby at the end of October, 1974. I saw him the week before my daughter was born, but never saw him again. Dr. Fauver delivered her. I had heard he was found wandering and was having psych problems. Funny what rumors abound.

My husband is scheduled for surgery on the 18, Jan.
We have been told that Dr Pakzaban does not operate at Patients and we would have to go to Bayshore. Does any one know for sure that he does not go to Patients. I have bad feelings about Bayshore

You should contact the doctor for that information.

However, you should be concerned about Bayshore... VERY concerned. They are still noted as one of the worst hospitals in Houston. If you wish to confirm this, just contact any medical malpractice lawyer.

I personally know of 2 people that had open heart surgery at BayShore and turned out perfectly fine. Nothing against Patients either, but I think the rap that Bay Shore got is in the past.

Well, not according to the nurse I was talking to, recently.

Of course, no one is saying that everyone that goes to Bayshore has problems. However, the likelihood of problems are dramatically higher at Bayshore, than most other hospitals.

I know someone that had surgery at Patients last year. From what I witnessed on the many occasions that I was visiting, I would vouch for the excellent staff and their quick response, even to the smallest needs.

I think he also uses Clear Lake Regional or SE Memorial or at least he did at one time.

Dr. Brody was my doctor for years. He delivered two of my children and later when Dr. Fauver joined his practice Dr. Fauver delivered the third. I loved both of them and thought they were great. I was always treated with respect and caring. My children are now 38, 35, & 34. I'm sorry to hear about Dr. Brody. What ever happened to Dr. Fauver?
