I will always be eternally grateful!"
"Dr. Kornel is one of the top neurosurgeons in the country. He cured my 10 year battle with debilitating headaches & migraines by replacing a herniated disc in my neck with an artificial disc. I refused to have fusion surgery & Dr. Kornel is one of few surgeons who performs this newer type of surgery. I have a new life thanks to Dr. Kornel and will forever be grateful to him & his very professional & kind office staff. "
"Dr. Kornel and the entire office staff were at all times the utmost in professionalism. True standouts in their care and understanding. Before, during and after major spinal surgery that gave me back my life. Even though it took a spinal cord injury to meet Dr Kornel I would trade the experience or the friends I made in his office and still share in their loss of Valora an assist to Dr Kornel who always went above and beyond to be helpful and get answers. Truly a pleasure to deal with the office and medical team."

"I've had Tethered Cord surgeory by Dr. Kornel about 22 years ago. I had no chance to have that operation in Turkey by that time. It was nightmare for me to travel long distances by bus or even by airplane. Backpain was my daily routine.
Dr. Kornel performed very succesfull operation at White Plains hospital. All of my complaints are gone by that time.
I've shared this succes story to my family members and friends several times. It was realy a succes story.
Thank you very much Dr. Kornel. "
"Top notch experience.
I needed that after all my past experiences to resolve my medical issue!!!
I so much appreciated all his concerns
and especially because I know he will get to the root of my problem!!!"
"I was made to feel very comfortable by the office staff. All my questions were answered. Dr. Kornel and I was extremely pleased by his experience and manner of putting me at ease."
"I have been fortunate to meet with Dr Kornel due to a consrtuction accident that occured in 2010 . Upon my first meeting with him he explained to me in great detail the injuries that my spine had suffered and went into great detail what my options would be to live a relatively normal life again. I was never preasured into having a surgical proceedure to rectify my problems. Nor did i at anytime feel presured into making any decisions about surgery while in his office. He spent as much time with me and my wife discussing all possible scenarios that might bring me relief to my excruciating pain. As for his medical background i think you will have a tough time finding any other neurosurgeon who is as skillful and compasionate about his work and patients. This man has truly been blessed by god not only with his surgical abilities but with his ability to be copmassionate towards all his patients . Unfortunately it took a misfortunate accident to meet this truly unbelievable human being. If you or anyone is in need of a neurosurgeon I would highly recommend him. As for his office staff I cannot begin to explain how helpful and compasionate they all are. Always ready and willing to help make a stressful situation bearable. "

"Dr. Kornel and his staff run a great practice. Each member takes time to listen to causes and concerns. Dr. Kornel himself is very kind and gentle and takes time to listen to his patients and their families.

I would highly recommend Brain and Spine Surgeons of Westchester and more importantly Dr. Kornel to anyone I know with such issues."
"I have had great experiences on every level
your staff. They do their jobs expediently and with great compassion. Personally I have dealt with Kathleen Zaccaria. She is an asset to your staf. Her knowledge of her position is outstanding. She has always been professional but her kindness is amazing. I've also had the pleasure of dealing with Trace Barth. She has scheduled 3 of my surgeries. She took care of every aspect wonderfully. Between communication and coordination with the hospital, my own Primary Care and me to get me to that hospital , it truly was admirable.The woman who answer your phones are courteous and you aren't put on hold.. I also had a positive experience with a young lady Lisa also a very good worker. There should be more medical offices that offer this kind of survey. I hope this will serve as a favorable recogition. On a lighter note ther aren't enough words to to convey my respect for Dr. Kornel !"
