I had a previous cervical fusion from another spine institute, which ultimately failed. I sought Barrows out, and specifically Dr. Theodore, for his extensive knowledge, and education regarding the spine. I was always seen in a timely manner, and Dr. Theodore and his staff have always answered all my questions. Frankly, I cannot tell you how comforting it is to have this top notch establishment on my side. I've had spine problems for over three years, and Dr. Theodore is still on board to help me resolve my issues. I think the best part of my life is soon to come, thanks to Barrows and Dr. Theodore. Dr. Theodore was also an inspiration to my son. He took the time to talk with him, and this man has a tremendous work load, there is a reason for that fact. He is the best! I cannot imagine the pressure of doing the job he does. Saves and improves the quality of lives. Saint Josephs Hospital was excellent on my last surgery, and I cannot say enough about the staff during my stay. I will always recommend anyone with spine problems to Barrows, and Dr. Theodore. I will be undergoing another spine surgery with Dr. Theodore in the near future, for a thoracic issue recently discovered. I feel there is no better man or location in the state for this to happen. If you choose Dr. Theodore and Barrows in general, you will be in the best of hands. Thank you Barrows, Dr. Theodore, Daytrel, Julie, and Amanda. You all are very kind and helpful.

Although Barrow is supposed to have some of the best Neurologists in the world, it is pretty difficult to tell. For the past three days we have spent hours on the phone trying to talk to someone other than the front desk. For three days we have been put on terminal hold, referred to phone numbers that have gone unanswered, promised that someone would be calling us back (they never do), and generally ignored. At this point, I cannot recommend this hospital.

I've been going to aBarrows for 15 to 20yrs. Excellent service. They stayed with me. Kept testing me. I was a problem case. Thought I had a form of Parkinism. Did an Lp, and it was negative for MS. So they ruled out Ms. Never did an MRI OF MY SPINE. That was what led them to MS. They do what I want done to me.

This amazing facility went above and beyond all expectations. Nurses in ICU are professional, caring, and attentitive. They watched and monitored through a window outside the room and entered only when needed. They noticed every restless movement and quickly checked to see if assistance or meds would help. After brain tumor removed, pain and nausea were treated quickly (and often.) Room was spotless, private and quiet. With my permission, family was allowed to visit at all hours. Nurses kept them informed and showed patience and understanding with their many questions and concerns. Room cleaning and routine BP and temperature checks were completed when I was awake so as not to disturb my sleep. Dr. Peter Nakaji and his team were amazing. I traveled from San Antonio to Phoenix based on the compassioinate and informative phone interview with Dr. Nakaji. I had seen two neurosurgeons in San Antonio and felt rushed and left with many questions. It was worth the trip as Dr. Nakaji took the time to explain what was needed, how it woud be done, and work with MY schedule to secure a convenient time and date. Without hesitation, I highly recomment Barrow Neurological at St. Joseph's Hospital AND Dr. Peter Nakaji for you or your loved one. They changed my life for the better.
