Patient Comments (4)
Rochester, PA |
The PA asked all the questions. The Dr came in, didn't even shake my hand, told me to lose weight, stop smoking, and go to physical therapy because I was out if shape, The Dr is short and pudgy! The PA called a week later and was very rude because I didn't start PT yet or quit smoking. Thankfully I got a second opinion and that surgeon took me off work immediately because I was in severe pain. He did surgery because I had a ruptured disc and pieces of it were laying on the nerve.

An excellent bedside manor plus an excellent surgeon.

When you are referred to him after an MRI shows 3 herniated discs and one ventrally ruptured, and your arm is weak, grip strength is weak, and he refers you to PT and his staff tells you he's going on Christmas vacation...that's a red flag. Another flag? No neuro exam. And when you fail PT, continue to have gait disturbance, pain, and vertigo with nausea when your turn your head, and this MD is two hours late for your appointment, and blows you off with a referral to Pain Clinic? RED FLAG MD

My experience was awful. 1 1/2 hour wait time. Doctor spent 30 seconds with me. Physicians assistant on a phone call afterward was rude, uncaring and unprofessional. Waste of my time.
