What People Say About Dr. Douglas Long, MD
Reply
Spent over an hour waiting for what turned out to be a 5 min appointment. Offered PT and an anti inflammatory for bulging discs. After asking about an injection, he said yah that’s a good idea that would probably help. Seriously? So glad all those years of medical school allowed you to think outside the box! If you have an appointment here cancel and go elsewhere. Read the reviews on healthgrades! This guy should really be ashamed of himself, he does not care. Apparently its all about the money!

It's too bad. I was hoping this doctor could fix me as he has a great reputation as a surgeon. However like most doctors, he has an opinion. Everybody has one. But this guy, is an "opinion". The so called medical professionals have turned into judge, jury and sometimes executioner. Just one more "opinion" after another. Go elsewhere. Referred me back to a doctor that wants to give me a steroid shot. "Shot in the arm, shot in the head either way you end up dead!" Surgeon 10 / 10. Doc = 0
