Review of Dr. Spackman


I experienced everything negative that has been said here. He was treating me for my back when I needed a hip replacement. In addition, he does not, nor does his staff, return phone calls. I left three messages saying that I was in horrific pain. My husband had to take me to the hospital where I was given Demerol. When I asked Spackman about it, he said that he is too busy to return phone calls. Seriously? I saw Dr. Rogers after that. She was great!

Review of Dr. Manos

- in Mount vernon, WA |

Canceled my appointment three times before I finally got in, he said my neck pain was not associated with me falling down a flight of stairs, seems like he had his chip on the shoulder, came in set down crossed his arms and crossed his legs, seemed like he had an attitude right off the bat would not help me

Review of Dr. Glover

- in Caldwell |

I was suffering from severe leg pain for 8 months due to a herniation at L5/S1. After discussing the options which he explained very clearly I decided to get a Diskectomy to remove the protrusion. It has been a month now and the pain is 95% gone. My life is so much better. He is a great surgeon and screw the guy who said a homeless person could do better, that's just stupid and wrong.

Review of Dr. Spackman

- in Boise, ID |

I found this man very patronizing and condescending. He needs to work on his bedside manner. If the answers he gets from his patients are dramatic, maybe it means they are in PAIN. He may need to work on the types of questions and how he phrases things so the patient is clear about the information he wants. He has personal issues that keep him from becoming a good doctor. He listened to my husband and would defer to him, because I was too dramatic for his taste. He was kind of a jerk.

Review of Dr. Manos


I have seen him for 4 yes now! At first he was wonderful, as he does have great bed side Manor; however!! I wouldn't send anyone to him!! I went 3 yrs not knowing that I had a failed fushion in me neck!! I wouldn't of ever known. Had I not asked for copies of my medical records. What address my concerns I was told everything was fine. Possibly needing a third surgery.

Review of Dr. Glover


My daughter was referred to Dr Glover by a friend from church. We were a little reluctant to make an appointment but are so happy now that we did. Dr Glover was not only very kind but provided good information and refreshingly logical perspective. He made what seemed to be very intimidating and scary situation, into a positive experience.

Review of Dr. Manos

- in Meridian, ID |

My experience with Dr. Manos has been excellent. He performed a spine fusion on my lower back which has provided immediate relief. Dr. Manos is professional, genuine, and transparent. I highly recommend anyone who is experiencing spine pain to seek the advice and expertise of Dr. Manos. I'm glad to have gone through this surgery and could not be more pleased with the outcome!
