Dr.Amin was very personable and professional. He took time to actively listen to my concerns, he offered non-surgical options and put my fears to rest. I would definitely refer family and friends to him and look forward to having him as an ally in my healing journey.

I was so afraid to have spinal fusion surgery, all of the possibilities of what could happened during and even after surgery had me scared. I really didn’t want to do it but the pain only would get worse so eventually i gave in. Let me tell you, BEST decision I’ve ever made. Dr Amin is amazing !! He definitely knows what he is doing, i am now able to turn my neck with no pain and no side effects.

I totally 100% recommend Dr. Amin. On my 1st visit I was in excruciating pain and partially hunched over. I had a previous spinal fusion 3 years before and the hardware was broken and out of place. Dr. Amin was attentive and listened to everything I said. He answered all my questions and assured me he could fix me. I had surgery Oct 11, 2022 and my pain is gone. He checked on me in the hospital daily and has attended all my post op appointments, unlike my previous surgeon. He is very thorough and just a nice authentic man.

After a major accident Dr Amin put my back together within two major surgeries. I had L1 broken, L2 shattered and spinal cord fractured There was little hope for my recovery and I was back on my feet within 8 weeks. It is not perfect but the amount of progress I have made is extrordinary thanks to this man. His medical experience, profesionalism and patient approach is absolutely amazing. I couldnt have been put in better hands.

From the beginning, Dr.Amin was very caring and explained exactly what would happen during surgery, what my test results showed and made sure I understood everything. His office staff is very reliable and efficient. They took care of appointments and procedures and I was never disappointed. Everyone including Dr Amin was great!! I would definitely recommend him!

I’ve suffered from back pain for many years. I’ve worked with doctors and physical therapist in the past with worse or no results. It’s been a long time since I’ve had any hope for recovery. Thanks to Dr. Amin my back pain has decreased significantly and the sciatica pain is minimal. Dr Amin was very helpful in explaining the issues with my back and with the details of the plan of action. He has set me on a path to recovery that I have hoped for most of my life. Thank you Dr. Amin and staff!

Dr. Bernal Amin was very professional and very kind in caring for me. He took the time to understand my physical problems I was having. I had to have surgery to correct my nerve problem. Right away after surgery my pain went away. Dr. Amin checked on me in the hospital the next day to make sure I was feeling better. I appreciated the concern he showed. he answered all of the questions I had. After being released from the hospital I had a follow up appointment with his office after 2weeks. They were so kind and warm carefully explaining my progress to me. My 6 weeks appointment was the same. I would recommend him to others.

I appreciate Dr. Amin's advice, his professionalism, friendliness, and courtesy. He performed surgery on my back some seven years ago much to my satisfaction. I highly recommend his medical services.
Ralph S. | Aug 12, 2022
My lumbar surgery performed By Dr. Amin went exactly as planned. The pre-op nurses were clear in their directions as well as very comforting regarding my nervousness. I separately met and spoke with Dr. Amin and several members of his surgical team during the interval before surgery. Each explained their role and fully answered my questions. The surgery prep began promptly on schedule, and I could hear the team softly communicating their preparedness to Dr.Amin. The surgery itself in Dr. Amin's skilled hands went perfectly.
Patricia S. | Jul 26, 2022
Dr. Amin preformed a laminectomy, decompression and fusion on my back at L4,L5,S1 on 5/31. I am so pleased with the results and my recovery thus far. I am 17 days post-op and am healing well. Staples were removed yesterday (no pain) and I am completely off all pain meds. Thank you Dr. Amin and your amazing staff for such great care throughout the entire process. Looking forward to follow up care as I continue to heal.
