Thankful to be Alive and Cancer-Free







It was a year in November 2015 that I am still cancer free!! Dr. Modha and his crew were amazing! Very scary and unexpected time for me and my family when I found out I had a brain tumor. I had been having many bad headaches, and was starting to get nauseus & dizzy. After trying a couple different medications that did not help, I asked to get an MRI, and that is when they saw it instantly. My wife and I met with Dr. Modha and he wasted no time in getting me in to surgery, and he made me and my family feel very confident that everything was going to be okay. He is an amazing doctor, and I would recommend him to anybody that was going through what I went through. Thankful to be alive and cancer free all because of him!!!

Dr. Modha Saved My Life

I have had Dr. Modha for my tumors for 5 years and would not have anyone else treat me. He is very straight forward and very honest with me. I have had 5 surgeries and he did all of them. He has saved my life with a couple of surgeries, and in my opinion he is the best, and my family thinks highly of him.

Thank you,

Quality Care With Dr. Modha

In 2014 I was diagnosed with a large benign brain tumor. I was referred to Dr. Modha at Rebound by another neurologist who called Dr. Modha's office during my appointment with the first doctor. By the time I got to my house Dr. Modha's office had called my house and left a message to call in the morning. I called first thing and they made appointment that day I was in Dr. Modha's office making an appointment for brain surgery within several weeks. Wow it was incredible to receive such quality care so quickly. I am very grateful.

The surgery went very well. I was given excellent care by the staff. The doctor came to check on me himself during my 7 day stay. The hospital and clinic are very organized and carefully explained the recovery process and expectations I am so thankful for the experience I had. I have not been hospitalized since having children 25 years ago. I would chose this facility in the future if needed. Thank you to Dr. Modha and all the staff.
