"Dr. Hadley corrected a surgery that was done incorrectly in my small town. The screws were coming out. He and his staff were very personable and kind. His surgery was successful and for the first time in six years, I’m pain-free! I’m so grateful to him! "

"Very thankful for Dr. Hadley - spinal fusion L4-L5 performed on 8.12.2019. Just celebrated 4 year anniversary. The surgery went well. Dr. Hadley and his entire staff did a great job. Followed his post-op directions concentrating on strengthening core, staying active and keeping weight down and have been very fortunate with no issues since. I have recommended Dr. Hadley to countless others, he is the best. "

"Dr. Hadley performed cervical surgery ~26 yrs ago from a previous botched surgery I had. He restored my body to a non-painful position. At 67, I revisited Dr.Hadley again for severe upper back pain that I had been in for 15 yrs. There was no other doctor that I trusted more than Dr. Hadley. He again told me exactly what he was doing, explained it, asked my questions/concerns, and said he would pray for me. That I thought was amazing, the prayers. He’s a great neurosurgeon & I am again 100% pain free and very thankful to Dr. Hadley. "

"It was bad. He was upset the surgery didn’t go right. Rude post op, kept saying he was a great surgeon. It was and is a horrible experience."

"We have nothing but praise for Dr Hadley and his team. My husband has a rather rare condition called DISH which finally needed to be addressed because of bone spurs on his C-2-5 which caused him to choke among other things. Dr Hadley and David explained the procedure and also called in an ENT doctor to help with the operation. I was impressed that he gave me a direct cell number if we needed him. It’s been a month since the operation and my husband is thrilled with the results. You can’t go wrong using Dr Hadley. "

"Dr. Hadley could care less if he completes a surgery and you are strapped to the couch for the rest of your life after the fact. He only cares if he is able to say he did "his job." Although that's only half of his job.... He views patients as a burden - so twisted. Complications from HIS surgery and IM the one who has to figure it out myself. Is it professional to lash out at patients post op because you messed it up.. because you don't have answers? Absolutely not. Not to mention he does not "believe in radiology. " I.E he's too arrogant to admit HE is wrong and I (THE PATIENT!!) needs help. Borderlines on malpractice and negligence. I would say Dr Hadley should be ashamed but seems he has gotten away with this for years. So, UAB you are at fault for hiring and enabling this joke of a doctor. The highest GPAs and Awards in the world can not hide the fact Dr Hadley is negligent, arrogant, and NOT a trustworthy doctor. Disappointing. "

"Dr. Hadley worked me in to his surgery schedule after I saw him in terrible pain for a bulging cervical disc. The pain started in my upper right neck, and eventually made it down to my right hand, where it felt like I had slammed it in a car door 24/7. It was awful. I woke up in recovery from the surgery pain free. He truly saved my life. I don’t think I could have survived much longer in that pain. I am 3 months post surgery now, and completely back to normal. I would strongly recommend him to anyone with a cervical disc issue. "

"Dr. Hadley preformed spinal fusion on me in June. I couldn't be happier with the results of this surgery. I am now pain free and, at 78 years old, I am able to go back to my active lifestyle (walking, biking, pickleball, bowling, etc). He and his staff have been wonderful through the whole process, from consultations to recovery to follow up appointments. Dr. Hadley is kind, friendly and direct. I felt confident that I had chosen the right surgeon to operate on my back. I did! I highly recommend Dr. Mark Hadley."

"Fantastic! He took the time to explain the diagnosis and the surgery needed to fix my issue. He and his staff are very professional. I can happily say that I’m pain free for the first time in 3 years! I highly recommend him. "

"Great surgical experience and outcome with a great doctor and his staff!! To say that Dr. Hadley is a highly skilled, exceptional surgeon is an understatement! Along with being an expert in his field, he is very caring and interested in his patients. Dr. Hadley is professional, knowledgeable, and straight forward. He took time with my husband to explain his condition, as well as addressed all our questions and concerns. As my husband proceeded to have surgery, Dr. Hadley, along with David Aldrich, PA and Linda Davis, CRNP, kept us informed and helped us every step of the way. They gave my husband excellent care and attention before and after the surgery. My husband has lived with severe pain in his neck and left arm for several years. After the surgery, he had immediate relief and had no complications. We know this was due to God helping us to find the very best surgeon, Dr. Hadley. We are so very grateful to Dr. Hadley and his wonderful team for the high, quality care that was given ...
to my husband. Their goal was to help us, and they carried out this goal so very well! Thank you can't be said enough to Dr. Hadley, David, and Linda for their help, kindness, and care! They were outstanding in every way and left a lasting impression on us!! Kai and John "

"Before meeting Dr. Hadley, I was in horrible pain. I have degenerative disc disease and have been seeing him in 2010. Since then, I have had 6 surgeries and each have been successful and have changed my quality of life for the better. Dr. Hadley and his team are so friendly and professional throughout the whole process. You will not find better support from a group than this one. He not only cares about his patients, he gives you his personal cell phone number in case of an emergency after you leave the hospital. None of my other doctors have done this for me. And he will not operate if he cannot help you. He does have requirements that must be met also if he can operate. All because he cares for you overall well-being. I highly recommend Dr. Hadley. I totally trust him and his abilities. "

"I wasn't trusting my spine to anyone but the best and that's why I chose Dr. Hadley. The results were absolutely perfect. I give him the highest recommendation available. "

"I am a disabled veteran and was in the early stages of becoming paralyzed when I was referred to Dr. Mark Hadley. He knew exactly what was wrong with me and what procedure would be required to give me a better quality of life. He successfully and skillfully performed my surgery, a dorsal cervical 3-4, 4-5, 5-6 and 6-7 laminectomy with cervical 2 – thoracic 2 internal fixation and fusion. The results were amazing. Prior to this operation I was really wheelchair bound and now I am able to stand straighter and use a walker for short periods. My excruciating back pain has been relieved and this has only been a few months since the operation. I hope to get even better with my continued OT and PT. I would highly recommend Dr. Hadley. He is an excellent surgeon and he really cares about his patients. He told me exactly what he was going to do, and then was there to check on my daily progress and to answer any questions I might have. I also cannot say enough about his PA, David Aldrich, ...
he was extremely hardworking, caring and compassionate. He came in every single day to check on me and make sure I was healing well. The whole staff was outstanding. I could not have asked for a better outcome or experience. "

"If you are unfortunate enough to have neck issues you can do no better than to have Dr. Hadley in your corner. Great team. My only complaints are; Fresca Ginger Ale - not a sign of ginger only fructose corn syrup. Most people drink ginger ale for stomach issues. When they order it they want ginger not sugar and the second is as I was about to throw-up in my room my wife ran out and asked the nurse supervisor if she had anything to throw-up in the nurse told her she would call my nurse. Luckily my wife saw a can and the rest is history. Back to the wonderful Dr. Hadley and team, there is no better team in America."

"In this new corona virus age of alternate physician visits, I just had my first "telephone visit" with Dr. Mark Hadley, a neurosurgeon at UAB. It was a valuable experience for me, as he and his nurse practitioner, Linda, were able to show me the MRI results of my cervical spine over the phone. He talked me through the diagnosis and my options for treatment. Dr. Hadley performed a successful spinal fusion procedure on my lumbar spine approximately a year ago, so I trust his judgment and skill implicitly. That surgery was life changing to me. The treatment and care I received through Dr. Hadley and his staff, both last year through surgery and this telephone visit today, makes me confident that I have chosen the best neurosurgeon possible for a successful outcome to my spinal issues."
