The goal of any treatment is to maximize neurological function and minimize pain. There are many possible reasons for a patient to have pain, and it is necessary to first understand why the patient has pain, and only then correlate that information with imaging such as MRI scans. Advanced technology is useful only when used to treat problems that will respond to it. Sometimes the best option is the simplest, and perhaps not even surgery. The patient should be given as much information as necessary to make an informed decision regarding treatment.

Good doctor, I have recommended him to others
I drive over 90 minutes to see dr stadlan. I trust him 100%
This was one of the worst encounters with a doctor ever. I was rushed and the doctor did not seem to care about the level of my pain. He acknowledged that my job is physical labor and will be painful but it's okay to work in pain.
Dr. Stadlan described the herniated disc surgery as an outpatient procedure. When he spoke to me in the hospital 6 weeks ago, he only described the surgery as taking 6 weeks or more to recover. He should have made that clearer, but since I was already in the hospital, he likely didn't think to tell me I might go home the same day. I am still recovering using less invasive measures currently.
Dr. Stadlin is superb! Excellent communication skills, medical expertise, and surgical skill. I am so lucky to have had Dr. Stadlin perform my disctectomy!
Dr Stadlan was clearly in a rush to complete the appointment. He clearly has expertise to help me; however, I feel he is unable to focus on me his patient because the work in the office is managed poorly and schedules run over.
Not sure why there is a Physician Assistant involved; doesn't add any value for me as patient. Potential for confusion; process works best with advanced practice nurse and doctor; maybe medical assistant for adding info to record
I have highly recommended Dr Stadlan to several friends.
Drl didn[t seem to be on conerned about what I thought. Didn't ask any questions. I think he was looking for an operation and i didn't seem to be a candidate. He ordered me a pill that scared. Side effect was suicidal tendencies. I think he got bored with me or had a date somewhere else.
Great . could not have dreamt .up a better surgeon. I trust him completely. Total confidence in him
