Tood is extremely caring, thorough, professional, personable, and an amazing surgeon. The flawed surgery he corrected caused me to stoop forward and barely walk. I'd consulted with 4 previous surgeons, including USC and UCLA and they had all told me my condition was permanent and irreversible, that I would be "crippled for life". Within 5 minutes of looking at my x-rays doctor Alamin could see the cause of the problem, described what he would do to correct it, and that is exactly what he did; "gave me my life back", I am so grateful!
Answered all my questions. very knowledgeable.

Dr. Alamin is the best! He has treated several family members, all with great results. He's our back doc!
We've recommended Dr. Alamin to several friends and family members.
Dr. Alamin was fantastic. His assistant was excellent ... educating me. Then he arrived and in depth explanation etc. I was extremely pleased with clarity depth caring.
While Dr. Almamin showed great empathy to my pain when attempting to diagnose, the resident who came in before could use some reasons. He was more focused on seeing my limits than realizing I'm a human in pain - not a doll.
Dr. Alamin far exceeded any expectations. My hope is with this practice.
I have the highest regards for my care provider and have nothing but high praise for the treatment I have been receiving.
Dr. Alamin was awesome and explained my issues in words that I could understand and advised me of my options in specific terms. Very much appreciated.
Dr Alamin inspires confidence. Dr. Jonathan patiently explained the surgical procedure and answered all my questions about the surgery and was reassuring. PAs and NPs were helpful and caring.
Young John and Dr. Alamin were great
Dr. Alamin was 100% in all of. (Actually 115%!!) Thorough & knowledgeable.
Amazingly knowledgeable and caring Dr. Alamin.
Dr. Alamin has my complete trust.
Dr. Alamin is always thorough with all questions answered. I have given his name to many because he is a fantastic surgeon but in addition has a wonderful caring bedside manner.
I will highly recommend this care provider. I felt at ease with the information I was given!
Dr. Alamin recommended a superb Stanford physician and I feel I am in very good hands.
I thought both the resident (learning MD) and Dr. Alamin were both professional, respectful and listened. Listening is the most important part to me.
excellent! Dr Todd Alliman and PA Nataliewe're warm, compassionate, extremely knowledgeable. they spent a great deal of time with me and explained diagnosis and treatment options. thank you!!
I have already recommended you to several of my friends.
I've seen Dr. Alamin before & he was just as thorough, friendly and helpful as previously.
I've already recommended the Doctor and his staff to others I know with back problems.
Dr. Alamin is great!
Dr. Alamin has to be one of the greatest physicians in the world. Very nice man. Very, very superb doctor.
I have great trust in Dr. Alamin and have recommended him to others
Every portion of the experience was very good.
I recommend my Dr. Todd Alamin, NP - Nataly to my primary doctors!! He needs surgery and he will be there. Thanks.
Excellent follow-up care
Dr. Alamin was outstanding!!
what more can I say. After 2 cervical sugeries with Dr. A. he knows us well and truly cares about my welfare. He offers suggestions and offers alternatives to further surgeries. I've also had full knee replacement and 2 rotator cuff surgeries. So, we all want to explore every avenue before heading into yet another one. I have recommended Dr. Alamin to all who have enquired about my experiences.
A wonderful doctor with a terrific bedside manner. Extremely easy to talk to. Careful and thorough with information and explanations. Instills confidences. Has a great attitude towards patients! it's a real upper to see Dr. ALamin even if the news is not good.
I think Dr Alamin is wonderful and I have (and will continue) to recommend him to my friends and acquaintances.
I have already recommended Dr. Todd Alamin to a few friends who seem to be suffering from pain similar to mine before my back surgeries performed by Dr. Alamin.
Alamin is a great doc
Dr. Alamin is an amazing surgeon and practitioner. He is very caring and technically excellent. I would never let another spine surgeon operate on my back. Natalie Archambo, the Physician assistant is also very thorough and caring and provided excellent care and instructions. Both were readily available by emails.
It was really nice to have a surgeon who understands active lifestyles and knows what certain exercises entail so that when I ask if I can do them, I don't have to explain what it is. As a result, I feel confident that having the surgery was the right thing to do for me and I'm excited to be able to set crazy goals again without worrying about the symptoms returning.
I am very active and have a somewhat different lifestyle at the moment and Dr. Alamin has been really helpful with getting me back up and running ASAP. As someone who can't sit still and feels like lounging around is a waste of heartbeats, I can really appreciate doctors who minimize downtime.
One of the best doctor! Dr. Alamin compassionate & caring. Dr. Natalie (PA) knowledgeable a cultured.
Dr. Alamin is a compassionate, attentive surgeon.
Dr. Todd Alamin is outstanding in every respect
Natalie Archambo and Dr. Todd Alamin take a lot of time with a patient, and provide excellent care!
I think my doctor is excellent! I would like to see him explain things a little better and in more detail, and let the patient know what he is going to do before he does it. Otherwise, I absolutely love him. He is awesome!
Made the visit an excellent experience.
This was my second experience with Dr. Todd Alamin and would "NEVER" go to another Ortho dr. except him and then only to one he recommend if he were to retire. He is a WONDERFUL dr. & person.
Entire staff were wonderful.
"Verygood" is not accurate - "Excellent" would be a better description -
Excellent care
Dr. Alamin is a very good Doctor and is very nice to his patients.
I've had a horrible year of deteriorating neuromuscular issues and Dr. Alamin has been helpful in delineating what might be physical problems with my spine from the neuromuscular issues. I am totally confident in his conclusions, even though it was not what I wanted to hear in this case.
Dr. Alamin had a friendly, open, give and take approach. he put me at ease, and instilled confidence in his skills.
My surgery and follow up were the best I have experienced.
Dr Alamin is the best doctor.. He's the only person I'll allow to do surgery on my back. Can't thank him enough for his ongoing support.
I have already recommended Todd Alamin, MD for a second opinion for a similar problem that I saw him for.
Dr. Alamin and his staff are top-notch, highly educated and compassionate professionals.
Dr Alamin is a truly gifted and dedicated surgeon. In the exam room, he gives one the impression that the patient is the most important person or thing in the world. He listens well.
I wasn't told that the Lyrica prescribed had to be phased in & had a very bad reaction.
Awesome guy!
I have already recommended my care provider and Stanford.
All was good my surgery my care it was the best.
I have recommended this care provider to others.
