Review of Dr. Spina III


Had Spinal Fusion surgery with Spina when post-op remained plus new symptoms every XRay, MRI and CT Scan come back with results. When I inquired about specific "mild bulge" his reply was "I'd hardly call that a bulge" Ultimately my own Insurance Company told me to get a second opinion because results show I clearly have issues that Spina is ignoring. In fact, Insurance sent him the same documents and he denied ever getting them stating what he sees is different than what I see.

Review of Dr. Spina III

-WA |

I was referred to Dr. Spina by one of his colleagues at the UW Hip & Knee Center. My experience was positive from beginning to end. I can't say enough good things about UW Medicine and, especially, Dr. Spina.

Review of Dr. Peters

- in Salt Lake City, UT |

Amazing doctor, can't say enough good things about him! Looking into other PAO websites and following peoples stories, I am amazed at my daughters recovery. I know this wouldn't have been possible without such a great surgeon. Extremely caring also, when he could see our concern going into to the surgery he was quick to address it and subsided our fears. She has bilateral dysplasia and when she goes back for her LPAO I won't let anyone care for my daughter but Dr. Peters

Review of Dr. Gililland

- in Jackson, WY |

So for this has gone really poorly. I’ve tried to contact his office to get some information and schedule and appointment. I waited on the phone for 15 minutes. I finally got a live person (reception?) First question: Can you tell me how to properly prounounce his last name. Answer: I don’t really know, but what you are saying sounds good. After a few more... I asked to speak with an assistant or staff. Response: I guess I can try and find someone. After 15 minutes of elevator music. I hung up

Review of Dr. Lawrence

- in Highland, UT |

Dr. Lawrence was my surgeon for a recent low back surgery. I consulted with several doctors, and Doctor Lawrence's recommendation was both conservative and helpful!! He listens well. He's positive and helpful. It was a great experience for me. I highly recommend him!!

Review of Dr. Burks

- in UT |

I was only a child (age 15, in 2003) when I started seeing Dr. Burke. We were referred to him after a failed knee operation when I was 12 years old. I could barley walk without collapsing at the time I met him. He performed 2 Tbial Transpositions, one on each knee. I am living proof of his amazing work. I am 30 years old now and even though I will always have knee problems, I had no life before. Since him, I have swam competitively, ran in races, and triathalons. He saved me.

Review of Dr. Hutchinson

- in Sandy |

Dr Hutchinson left me waiting for over an hour with no apology. When he asked why I was irritated he twisted things around and tried to blame the bad energy on ME for not bringing up my irritation as soon as he entered the room. He was condescending and made my pain to sound trivial. I will never go back.

Review of Dr. Hansen

-Salt Lake City |

The not-so-thorough explanation of my spine condition was completely conducted by her aide who provided no help or guidance at all on what to do to help my problem. My only advice from Dr. Hansen was that I might be too young for surgery because it might cause problems in a few years, and so there is only pain management and physical therapy. She also was unable to be contacted regularly, including not returning calls to disability agents, resulting in a claims denial.

Review of Dr. Aoki

- in UT |

Horrible experience!My 15 year old daughter has suffered knee pain for years. We were referred to Dr. Aoki because he is a"specialist" and great with adolescent knee pain. He asked my daughter a few questions and bent her knee. He interacted with her for 3-5 minutes. Then he told her she has mental problems.."This is all in your head." He spent 20 minutes telling her she was depressed and crazy. Our experience was awful! My daughter had surgery a few weeks later. It wasn't in her head!

I thought Dr. Hansen was very thorough. She was professional and went over my prognosis with me in detail.
