I have been a patient (?) for the past 9 months, but have never seen him. A PA met with me on each visit, ordering additional tests each time. Appointments were cancelled and rescheduled several times, including once while I was in the parking lot for a scheduled appointment. Would not recommend this practice.
I was so disappointed in the way I was treated at this office. Long story short, I was told my symptoms didn’t match my MRI. They wanted to order two more additional MRI’s. Needless to say, I drove 3 hours to the neurosurgeon that did my first surgery. I had a consult today for this issue and I’m now sitting in the hospital prepped for surgery tomorrow morning. No addt’ MRI’s needed.They did not listen to anything I was saying. It seemed as though they thought I wanted pain medicine when all I asked for was help getting better and declined any medicines.I’ve heard wonderful things about the surgeons there before I went and now my opinion has been 1,000% changed.
Dr. El is a great doctor. He has done four surgeries for me and has helped me a great deal.
I don't recommend this dr! He did back surgery in my husband and he is worse than before! He never see my husband on the hospital after the surgery and discharge him on the same day without physiotherapy. Nether recommended rehabilitation! He promised that my husband would walk better after the surgery, it didn't happen!
This website would not post my actual opinion because my review was very long and in detail as this doctor has no integrity whatsoever his word is not good. His staff were nice and very helpful but the ending result his surgery was scheduled three times and three times canceled town for a new doctor
Dr is okay staff is a nightmare. The phone tree is horrible and trying to get someone to call you back won’t happen. Turned in my FMLA paperwork 2 weeks ago called every day this week, now Friday no one has called me back, paperwork hasn’t been submitted. Keep getting sent to voicemails.
Excellent Dr. Did my surgery and I had no problems.
Waited 3 months with severe low back pain to get in seen the PA she said I had two disc rubbing bone on bone that was what was causing the severe pain and I needed surgery so I said ok she said the surgery would be in 4 weeks and they would call me with a surgery date I waited 4 weeks still in bad pain and didn't hear from them so I called them back and they said the doctor looked at my disc and didn't recommend any surgery at this time they didn't even bother to call me back I'm no doctor but something is bad wrong it's just not normal to be in severe pain this long I have now hired me a doctor in Lexington that's going to fix my back I would not recommend this doctor.
I had been patient of Dr. El -Kalliny for about 4 years. He did the best he could do and than some but in the end the bridge was burnt. The receptionists are extremely polite and kind but the rest of the staff is bogged down and over booked. I attempted to establish communication and contact but not a return call, text, email, or even a letter in the mail.
I waited 4 months to see doctor El-kalini But it was worth it.i had a cervical fusion And since I woke up from surgery my arm pain and shoulder pain was gone. I’d recommend this surgeon for anyone who suffers from back or neck pain
This was first appointment and I waited well over 2 hours to get back into the exam room where I saw the Nurse Practitioner. He was nice enough and tried to answer my questions unsuccessfully. He went to get the doctor who I dont think I would have seen if I hadn't pushed the point. The Dr. was there about 5 minutes didnt really explain anything he checked my mri but not the ct then just ordered more test. I left knowing less than I did when I came in. I'm finding a new Dr.!
Excellent surgeon. He is kind and personable. Dr. Elkaliny offers a very competent and professional experience.
I am very pleased with all he has done for me. My family is happy with the outcome of the shunt. Great guy. Thanks so much for everything
love both these doctors, so glad we have them in ky.
Dr. Magdy M El-Kalliny.did my spinal fusion in 2005, I was 59 years old ,I had been going to Vanderbilt ,in Nashville,Tennessee over 14 years.with any help, I was referred to Dr. El-Kalliny and after MRI's,he did a spinal fusion, and took 5 disk out and installed two 11 inch rods and 6 screws into my low back. I did as he told me and after a year.I recovered and can do a lot that I wasn't able to do before the operation, Dr.Elkalliny treated me and my family with the highest respect.and I would tell anyone who has a back problem to see him and take his advice and do as he tells you, after a year of recover, I have no pain in my legs, very little pain in my back,and I can lift up to about 35 pounds. I am 71 now and work 3 or 4 days a week at Sam's Club and alway buy and sell farm tractors.. Thank,You Dr. ElKalliny for healing me.. Just remember if you have back surgery or a spinal fusion ,it will take a long time to heal. Do as the Dr tells you.. Not as you want.. You will feel a lot better
PRE-op care - Dr El K spent approprite amount of time, responded empathetically. Quickly obtained insurance approval for surgery. I was impressed and grateful to have found him. However, very poor POST- surgical care. Very difficult to reach office by phone. Reply to messages slow/or non-existent. Slow to provide test results. Slow to respond to urgent post-op concerns. Poor nursing care. At the very least, poor office management. Don't be fooled by office decor, it's all smoke and mirrors.
He evidently enjoys causing his patients pain. He went out of country and was gone two weeks. Rescheduled my surgery 3 times and wanted to give me pain meds after surgery. I fired him went to VA in Lexington got a great Dr and surgery was a success I wasn't left in pain either. I wouldn't take my dog to him. He's clearly all about the money!
this dr helped me a lot still cant walk yet but soon i hope......thanks.
Recommened Dr. Very professional, great dr. Staff are wonderful. I have been a patient for 2 yrs. He has helped me very much.
direct approach. no rush to surgery. advised well and couldnt be happier with results.my time wasn't wasted and I was given straight answers.surgery results exactly as described.
