Patient Comments (4)
I went in to this guy, and told him I had a HECK of a time trying to sleep at night, and he verified I have a torn labrum. I had one request: Can he give me a steroid shot to alleviate the pain, or provide some kind of non-narcotic pain reliever, so I can sleep, because like most humans, I need to sleep. He literally walked away. I even went so far as to call them after, telling them I was frustrated, and needed guidance. This Doctor does not care. I will NOT go back to this Doctor.

Like everyone else who has made reviews out here, my experience is unfortunately the same. I explained to him my issue. Told him my problem. Explained that I don't want pain meds to make me sleep during the day, and simply asked what are the alternatives? I even said "over the counter", and I reiterated that I just got hired and I have a new boss. I wasn't fishing for pain meds, and wanted something simple, until I got into see the Physical Therapist. He literally walked away.

He is a good Dr. but poor beside manners. Towards end of my visit he said, Next time tell me its your ankle not your foot. I did not know how to take him... maybe he was having a bad day or just being rude. He seen my x-rays and he knew I broken my ankle. His staff is friendly and nice.

Dr. Bonnarens is an excellent surgeon. He operated on my husband's shoulder. Unfortunately he does not have a good bedside manner. He doesn't really listen to his patients or spend a lot of time with them. He has his own agenda and forgets that every patient is different and heals at different times. His staff is very friendly.
