What Patients are Saying About Dr. Pinakin R. Jethwa, MD

I had a severe blockage of my left carotid artery, which had caused a small stroke. I was scared and confused ... until I met Dr. Ronald Benitez and Dr. Pinakin Jethwa, neurosurgeons from Atlantic NeuroSurgical Specialists, and Physician Assistant Dean Barone. They explained I needed emergency surgery. They couldn’t believe I didn’t have a massive stroke. Being a nurse, I understood everything they were explaining … but I was still scared. I will never forget how they sat and talked with me until I was calm, drew pictures and gave me their cell phone numbers. That was going above and beyond.

— Ann T.

I had a leaking aneurysm. Thankfully, Dr. Jethwa was able to coil it during a minimally invasive procedure. This was a frightening experience, but Dr. Jethwa and Physician Assistant Dean Barone took the fear out of it, not only for me and my husband, but for our four grown sons as well. They were compassionate, kind, and they kept us informed of every detail – what had been done and what the next steps were. I call them my miracle men. I don’t believe I would have survived without them.

— Donna M.

It took a few weeks to recover completely from a large aneurysm located just behind my left eye. When I returned to work, my colleagues couldn’t believe anything had been wrong with me – let alone the fact that I had been through five hours of surgery. I feel great, and I owe that to Dr. Jethwa and Dean Barone, a physician assistant at ANS. They were all reassuring, kind, compassionate and patient. In fact, the last time I was in the office, I had a clean CT scan. I was so excited – and so grateful – that I hugged Dr. Jethwa. It was the only way I knew how to thank him!
