Patient Comments (5)
Salem, OR |
Arrogant and rude to start with. Had a simple leg fracture that he assured me would heal fine and be back to normal. 3 surgeries and 9 months later, I will never be able to walk unassisted again. His response was it was because I'm a "brittle diabetic", which I'm not.
I shattered my collar bone, was per ER referred to Dr. Pressman. The office let me sit 10 days without looking at me at home, first appointment - no info besides that I need surgery..... Surgery went per Dr. Good - however - they nerv blocked my arm and I landed the night of the surgery back in the ER due to excruciating pain. Post op app. was wrong scheduled. The whole office is a mess! No bedside manners - I felt violated - complained to medical board.

I had a bad fall in February and became a patient of Dr. Pressman for multiple breaks to arm/elbow needing reconstruction. Admittedly Dr. Pressman is not the most personable Dr. I've ever met, but his surgical skills are excellent. He answered any questions I had and treated me with respect. My only complaint is with that of his young associate (can't remember name) who gave the lecture for intense rehab which was opposite 'it isn't a race' recovery information that Dr. Pressman advpcated.

Dr. Pressman is one of the least personable doctors I have ever met. I first met him in the hospital after an accident and even at the second meeting in his office, I got next to no information from him and came away very frustrated. I cancelled my next appointment with him. He had trouble locating the fractures on the xray, which did not instill confidence.

Terrible. He kept me in pain when he easily could have written a prescription. I had never met him, had no reason to be treated poorly but he was severely negligent. I called daily complaining of severe pain and he simply ignored me. There's no reason gor any doctor to put a patient through something like this. Nobody should wake up screaming because thier in such excruciating pain, and be ignored. I'm truly traumatized.
