in Bay City |
I would highly recommend Dr. Udehn. He is very patient, and took time to listen intently about my situation. He was very thorough with my examination and reviewing my reports. He also answered many questions that I had. He is very knowledgeable in his field and respect him for not rushing into surgery with me when it could pose more problems then rewards. I also liked the fact that he made suggestions that would alleviate my pain. His staff are very kind, helpful and efficient.

My son & I were in a horrible car accident. W/o doing any test he comes in the room and tells me that my son's head had been disconnected from his spinal cord. And that he was brain dead. His hands were still moving so I questioned it he said it was just nerves. Thankfully the ER Dr. ordered a CT & it showed that everything was in fact still intact. He let my son lay there for 4 hours while we were saying our goodbyes. He told me my son wasn't worth fight for. He passed days later. He was 4.
