never returns calls STILL waiting for test results from 10/15 obviously changed doctors!!!
Huntington, NY |
Same comment as previous patient.
Plainview, NY |
When I had extreme pain he did not return my call. I had to go an emergency room for the pain and when I finally did get an appointment he told me to take Xanax even after he saw my MRI, which showed an extruded disc. The pain was insane, and he sent me home with naproxen and said an epidural wouldn't help. I was not given the proper care with Dr. Root and the condition worsened. I went to another doctor who prescribed 3 epidurals along with other medications and am fine.
