Review of Dr. Biel

My experience with Dr. Biel was amazing, life changing! I had serious scoliosis and he was able to stabalize my spine and remove my fear of the future. He is an exceptional surgeon and person. I would strongly recommend him!!!!

Review of Dr. Biel

- in Indianapolis, IN |

In July 2013 he placed a 12in rod and did 2 fusions. After 3 months I was still in pain so he did some imagining and he found 3 screws were broke. December 2013 he removed 10in of the rod and did a 3rd fusion. I am in pain 24/7 and a few months ago I had problems walking to the point I had to quit my career of 20 years in EMS. I have a bulge in my spine being pinched off because of him and now I will be having a 4th surgery just to walk again. WORST DOCTOR EVER!!!

Review of Dr. Biel

- |

I just had a lumbar microdiscectomy and most 98% of my numbness and weakness in my right leg and foot has already ceaced and the sharp pins and needles I have only felt once or twice since returning home dr. Biel was a God-sent help for me. I am also highly scared of anesthesia and his anesthesia doctors that was working with him at Mercy Fairfield did the best job than any other doctor has with making me feel comfortable with going under thank you again doctor Biel

Review of Dr. Biel

- in Indianapolis, IN |

I wouldn't recommend ANYONE to him even if life depended on it! Dr Biel did a spinal fusion of my T2-T12 on 10-15-13. I was still having trouble 8 months later even after getting epidural injections and nerve blocks for pain. he was supposed to redo everything 6-24-14 n fuse down to my L4 and instead he removed ALL my hardware without telling me until after and did NOTHING else. I then had a cyst grow that I had to have another Dr remove and still deal with HORRIBLE pain to this day! HORRIBLE!!!

Review of Dr. Biel

-Cincinnati, OH |

I felt like just a number. Told him where my most pain was and he actually ordered an injection for the second most pain area. When I went back for follow up I told him I still hurt in the #1 area!!! So he ordered another injection for that area!! So took me 4 weeks to get treatment for the reason I went to see him!!! Doesn't listen!!! Won't go back. Also Mercy takes too long to get anything scheduled. Not schedulers fault. Drs fault this dr is a back surgeon. Why can't he do injection??? Ugh!

Review of Dr. Biel

- in Indianapolis, In |

When I first met Dr Biel I had a previous failed back surgery done by another surgeon. I couldnt stand more than a few seconds without experiencing extreme discomfort. After examining me and the xrays he had taken of my spine he assured me that he could make repairs and I would no longer be in pain. I am thrilled with the surgery Dr Biel performed on my back. I am finally pain free. Thank you, Dr Biel!

Review of Dr. Biel

- in Indianapolis, IN |

Dr. Biel was my surgeon for my fractures. He and his staff KNEW I was on birth control pill, yet never took me off. I complained of calf aches for weeks, and he and staff all brushed it off to damaged tissue from my accident even though it was getting worse, instead of better. I had a DVT and, since they ignored me, I had a pulmonary embolism. He also would only talk to me for a few seconds at appointments (1 where I asked if I should go off the Pill) and his staff was dismissive too.
