HEAR FROM OUR PATIENTS

The NeuroMedical Center is truly inspired by our patients.  If you are living with a neurological condition, we hope you are inspired by these success stories, too.


“When an aneurysm ruptured behind my left eye, Dr. Greg Fautheree of The NeuroMedical Center saved my life. I thank God for him and his staff.”

-Reverend MaryAnn Garrett, Baton Rouge, LA


“Dr. Calegan listens and he cares. He is extremely knowledgeable. He diagnosed me with peripheral neuropathy and he immediately had a treatment plan with supplements, 2 meds and a diet low in carbs and little or no sugar. I bought the 2 books he recommended after my first appointment.  The books are amazing and became my road map to find the cure to my peripheral neuropathy. I had relief due to this diet in 1 week! Dr. Calegan saved my life.”

“I would highly recommend Dr. Eric Oberlander. Before my back surgery I was in pain most of the day and had to limit my activities. Now- after the surgery,  all of my pain is gone and I have no pain. My surgery was a great success.”

Velma V., Hammond, LA


“Dr. Kelly Scrantz and his staff are exceptional! It has been almost 1 year since my Anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) surgery by Dr. Scrantz and I am pain free and often forget I had the surgery!  Excellent care before, during and post-surgery. Highly recommended!”

“When I met Dr. Scott Soleau, I had just awoken from 30+ hrs. on a ventilator, with my family waiting to hear of my passing. Because of Dr. Soleau’s absolute brilliance as a neurosurgeon that moment never came. When I tried to thank him for saving my life, he insisted that he was only an instrument, that God was who actually saved my life.  I hope he sees this, I want him to know how truly thankful and elated I am to have met and been associated with an individual of his caliber in my lifetime.”

-Mark H.


“Dr. April Erwin is very thorough, listens to my concerns and is willing to answer any questions I have about my health and treatment. One can tell that she truly cares about the well-being of her patients by her countenance and sweet personality. I would recommend Dr. Erwin to anyone seeking a knowledgeable and professional physician.”

I wanted to express my thanks for the impeccable surgery experience and stay at The Spine Hospital of Louisiana at The NeuroMedical Center.  I’ve worked in the medical field for the last 25 years and have been employed by a local surgical center the past 15 years. I am very opinionated about the way healthcare has fallen short on so many levels and things aren’t the same as “back in the day.”  I come from the day when a physician yelled at you for a mistake, you never made the mistake again. The many wrongdoings that I see on an almost daily basis in the entire medical community, doctor’s offices, hospitals etc. are just unfortunately, accepted. I just can’t thank you enough for the unbelievable care and treatment I received at your facility. From my pre-op experience with Susan, to my circulator, Debra and Pat Tucker, my trusty CRNA, to my 2 precious recovery room nurses that made me feel like I was the only patient in PACU.  One sweet recovery room nurses name was Jacqueline, as she remembered me from a small outpatient procedure I had in May. That impressed me, how often does that happen…almost never!  My nurse Kim was excellent as well as Andrea, her trusty sidekick. I don’t think I ever hit my “call your nurse” button because I didn’t have to.  The other really impressive thing was that I did get to sleep the night. Kim and Andrea made sure my vitals and meds were done in sync which was unheard of in most hospital stays.  The most important thing I felt was that everyone really loved their jobs and it showed in the care that they provided! I hope to not have any more surgeries in the near future but if you guys did tummy tucks… I’d be scheduling there at The Spine Hospital!”

“Dr. Charles Bowie is God sent to my family. We met him due to an accident that my daughter had. He is the reason why she can speak, walk, look both ways, and know what’s going on around her. Our paths met again due to my 7 year back pain simply becoming unbearable. I had a bulging disc pushing on my nerves. We scheduled surgery for a Friday and I was back at work on Tuesday with no pain. Absolutely amazing. He saved my daughter and changed my life. Everyday I’ll pray that we were introduced to this man.”

-Yancy, Baton Rouge, Louisiana


“Thanks to Dr. Samir Patel, my chronic back pain is finally under control and crossing the finish line has never felt so good.”

-Charles Anderson, Baton Rouge, LA


“Every step of the way Dr. Waguespack took his time to explain in detail the procedures. Thanks to Dr. Waguespack and his exceptional staff, I am enjoying life again! It’s now time for my husband and I to hop on our motorcycle for a hiking trip in the Smoky Mountains!”

-Belinda T., Baton Rouge, LA


“My sister had surgery with Dr. Corsten. As scary as it was, he explained everything thoroughly and made us feel important. The surgery was a success and she is back up to her life again. The staff in his office (including his nurse and PA) were amazing as well as the staff at The Spine Hospital of Louisiana. I am very thankful for Dr. Corsten and should anyone ever need a neurosurgeon again, we know where they’d be going!

“Dr. Kidder has been a life saver for me. He was able to quickly diagnose my problem which turned out to be a rather rare condition. Actually he did it on the 1st visit. The treatments over the last 2 years have greatly improved my quality of life. Initially taken in the hospital, Dr. Kidder, was there to supervise the administration and was always reassuring and easy to talk to. When I asked questions he was more than happy to not only answer them, but to engage in deeper discussions about my condition. I would highly recommend him.”

“I still can’t believe that a 45 minute surgery relieved 10 years of debilitating back and leg pain. Laser spine surgery and Dr. Greg Fautheree changed my life! I feel like a brand new woman!”

-Lynn Whitty, Baton Rouge, LA


“My mother, Pauline, traveled over 120 miles to have surgery on her painful back. Keep in mind there are physicians in the Alexandria, LA area who are capable of performing the surgery. However, she ultimately decided to go to The Spine Hospital. My father accompanied her during her stay and you took care of his needs also. Dr. Charles Bowie kept my mother safe as he did not perform the back surgery until he had communicated with her other primary care practitioners in Alexandria. Upon arrival, my parents were greeted by bright-eyed, attentive staff. The facility was clean, modern, and not malodorous. The 4:1 patient-to-nurse ratio is WONDERFUL. A registered nurse brought my 73-year-old dad ice cream and graham crackers. That small act of kindness went a long way in my book. She did not know about his severe hip pain he was hiding from everyone. She made him feel better and never even knew it. This facility and staff are examples for others to emulate. I shall sing the praises about your staff and facility!”

-Donald Kendrick, JR, BSN, RN


“Every day, I feel like I’m waking up to a miracle. I thank my doctors in my prayers for performing this life-changing deep brain stimulation surgery! Anytime I see someone who has hand tremors, I want to tell them all about DBS and how Dr. Paul Waguespack and Dr. Gerald Calegan at The NeuroMedical Center gave me my life back!”
