Review of Dr. Geiger Jr


I didn't even get as far as an appointment with Dr. Geiger. His secretary wouldn't listen to what I had to say. She scheduled an appt with the PA even though I asked if it should be done after the MRI, which I already had a referral for. She said that the PA would schedule the MRI (why, when I already had the referral? Not listening). I said it would be a waste of time and money to have the appt before the MRI. Paper work never arrived. When I called to confirm the appt time I was told to be in early for an x-ray which was the first I had heard about that. We canceled the appt (so he's just going to live with the pain, was her comment) based on the communication problems with the secretary (Deb).

Review of Dr. Oppenlander

- in MI |

I had a "rare" thoracic spinal cord compression. Was seen by 2 previous surgeons. Neither of whom explained & appeared hesitant to do the surgery. My 1st meeting with Dr. Oppenlander & his N.P. was informative. Every detail of the complicated surgery was addressed along with all risks & complications. Was never pressured to have the surgery. I have been a RN for 31 years & have a very high standard for the medical profession. Surgery completed, I am thrilled with the outcome. He is the best!!

Review of Dr. Kucia

I was extremely hesitant about Dr. Kucia prior to her performing a multi-level cervical spine disc replacement on me in July of 2017. It has been nearly 18 months since the surgery and, in my opinion, the surgery was a complete failure. Dr. Kucia adivsed me that my exponentially increased pain, diminished mobility, inability to swallow and breathe comfortably, increased numbness & weakness, massive constant headaches and additional debilitating side effects SINCE THE SURGERY are all reasonable o

Review of Dr. Falahee

-MI |

I have a very difficult time reading the negative reviews of Dr. Falahee. This will be my 3rd fusion in the past 14 years. He has always showed the utmost care and concern when I have seen him. He explained my condition well, was honest and upfront and listened to all my questions.

Review of Dr. Geiger Jr

-Manitou Beach, MI |

Based on the poor care my father received after his back surgery, I would NOT recommend Dr. Geiger, MI Brain & Spine Institute, or St. Joseph Chelsea. If you are an elderly person BEWARE that no one discusses the risk factors for postoperative delirium and what can happen after surgery!

Review of Dr. Thomas

- in Howell |

Good doctor. A little rough for some on the outlook I guess but as a military and law enforcement person I have tougher skin and would rather be more realistic. Unfortunalty in both the physician field and my line of work you become cynical after seeing things time and again.
