What Our Patients Are Saying

Geoffrey Gross

"Dr Kai Ming Fu has treated myself and my wife for spinal issues. Me for an auto accident that caused a compression fracture of my thoracic spine and I lost feeling in my right hand. I have spinal issues so as Dr Fu told me we are going to be on a life long relationship. He is not looking to operate, he wants to use the the least invasive methods first as part of the team at Weill Cornell Brain and spine. Dr Fu avails all on this multidisciplinary team to work with him. Recently I was diagnosed with a meningioma in my cranium. Dr Fu told me he does this operation BUT he sent me immediately to Dr Schwartz a pioneer in this field. Dr Kai Ming fu has treated and always will treat me and my wife as his family. He said to me recently I’d send my family to Dr Schwartz. Now for my spine it’s Dr Fu. He once operated on my wife with an abnormal spine and within a day she was walking and regained the feeling in her hands. Astounding indeed. Dr Fu is part of Weill Cornell Brain and spine that world news reports as the third best performing hospital in the fields of neurological disorders as well as neurological surgery every year. Keep in mind it’s the doctors who perform miracles constantly who attain the hospitals ratings. Dr Fu is at the top of his field, in fact not my opinion. His outcomes are what speaks louder than my review ever will. I grew up in new york Now living in Pennsylvania I never even consider another hospital. I highly recommend Dr Kai Ming Fu as he is personable and most important at the top of his field. Always using colleagues to further treat your multidisciplinary issues at Weill Cornell Brain and Spine. I must end with his assistant ANA Forman is another dedicated Educated person with a long list of her training and accomplishments is the best anyone can avail themselves of. I could go on and on but I won’t my hands hurt I highly recommend Dr Kai Ming Fu Md PhD, oh yes I have been with Dr Fu for going on 11 years now both my wife and myself. The very best indeed"
