"Some of the same pain after having surgery. Lots of new pain. Didnt even try to figure what or why I had the pain for over 7mo. Just blamed it on the fact that Im a smoker. Almost a year after surgery is now looking into why I still have pain."

General Comments

Do your research. Get 2nd, 3rd and even 4th opinion before doing a surgery.

I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS DR,

Negative Comments

12/10 Dr Dagam did a fusion L4, L5, S1 on my Mom. Microscopic nerves were cut in surgery, leaving her w/Cauda Equina Syndrome. Dr Dagam told us Mom's bowel & bladder not working was from compression & swelling from surgery. It would go away. He lied, it's very permanent. It was also in the surgery notes that the error was made. After yrs of self cathing and struggling w/bowel incontinence, 7/15 she had a colostomy & supra pubic cath. She has back pain & many issues since. I would NOT recommend.

General Comments

If he had just come out of surgery and said there was a complication and this is what we are dealing with now, it would have saved so much extra stress, pain and suffering!

Test results getting lost, test results not given over the phone, an appointment for every little thing just to get an office fee. This whole practice is terrible

He's a butcher and he covers it up! Go somewhere else!

Negative Comments

The dr caused permanent damage, completely altering the quality of my life, leaving me in constant debilitating pain and with a condition that will only worsen with time. I should be enjoying my husband and grandkids, instead I spend 80% of my time in bed unable to do anything. The worst part is that he lied, covered it up and brought in a shrink to try to pass it off that this condition was in my head. Do not let this guy cut you open!!

He was highly recommended by my primary doctor and I was so pleased that I went to see dr. Dagam. I had surgery with him on my back and prior to surgery I couldn't walk but now the pain in my legs is gone. every time I go to his office to follow up, the office staff is so friendly and I always get to see Dr. Dagam not just an assistant or nurse.

He seemed saved my mothers life when she was diagnosed with a very dangerous brain tumor. I will be forever grateful. He was kind and compassionate to me and my family through it all. I would recommend him to anyone.

He does not come back to explain anything. He does not care. My family member died. HE NEVER came back to see us.

General Comments

Charges a lot of money and no respect. My loved one died right after surgery. (hours) Please don't see him!! Look around there are other DR'S. Take your time and talk to them. If you don't like them...walk away. Their surgery skills are just like their practice.

I came out of my surgery in far worse shape than when I went in. He screwed up, it's in the records, but he lied and tried to cover it up. I wouldn't send anyone to him!!
