This began on January 11. Dr. Dery at Steindler Orthopedic Clinic in Iowa City was rude to me, condescending, and patronizing. He discouraged me from becoming a patient by telling me my insurance would take two weeks to be checked out. I'm on Medicaid and I've never had to wait that length of time. I believe that he did not want me as a new patient. I made a complaint about him. I was assured there would be no retaliation. I was kicked out the next day by CEO. Also recorded on the sneak.

Waited almost 2 months for the appointment. My out of state surgeon had sent the order and Dr. Dery never responded with any hesitations etc. So I go to the appointment and I know immediately that something is messed up because he orders a bunch of x-rays. Waiting in the exam room for him. He comes in and within 5 minutes starts to bash my surgeon in Dallas. This surgeon is one of 3 in the country who are able to do Tarlov cyst disease surgery. Dr. Dery was unprofessional and rude.

Injections given for pain didn't work and he refused to listen to the fact that I felt ill afterwards. In another appointment I received an epidural and have never been in soo much pain before and I have had many epidurals from another provider. And to make things worse it didn't help either.
