Beware of this Bad Back Quackter! He left a bone growth simulator in my sisters back that was supposed to be removed 6 months later. My sister to this day is in agonizing pain and he is the cause! He would not remove it because work comp wouldn't pay him! She is disabled and in bad pain ever since!
It is unfortunately not uncommon for patients to suffer persistent pain following spine fusion surgery. Removing the BGSpulse generator will not provide relief in patients with failed back surgery syndrome. If the WC ins carrier did not authorize surgery , the patient could have used group insurance coverage , also the hospital will not routinely allow surgeons to perform ELECTIVE procedures w/o insurance or a payment plan . As of 2012 I was no longer in practice in Joliet.

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE Dr DePhillips!!! and his MA, Emilee!!! They have gone above and beyond for me. He has not jumped to cut, went over many options, discussed and looked at all MRIs. He is kind, very knowledgeable, soft spoken, and reassuring. I have never had an appointment last less than an hour--the last two were 2 1/2 hours because I have a complicated case and he is being VERY thorough. LOVE HIM!!!!!

Talk about a terrible first impression, wow! My first visit. Made appt. speciffically w/ Dr. Dephillips. Got verification message said I would be seeing the P.A. I returned the call was Adament about seeing the dr. was assured he would be in there as well. I have a very well documented neck issue going back to 2010. Upon arrival, my visit was none other than P.A. who wants to start me from the beginning. Wouldn't even look at my MRIs. Never got to see the Dr. Hope next visit is better.
It is office policy that patients coming in for the initial visit and those that do not have recent imaging be seen by the PA. Did you attempt another appointment.
