He is rude very unprofesional. Accused me of lying about missed appointments that i never had. Treated me like a pill seeker although i have a broken displaced wrist. Do not see him. My wrist is out of place 3 weeks later and he expects me to wait 2 more weeks before he will do anything. Its absolutley ridiculous to get an appointment or a straight answer. I wouldnt take my exhusbands dog to see this man. What a jerk
in Cincinnati, OH |
Dr. Muccio recommended rotator cuff surgery for me on the basis of a written MRI report. A second shoulder surgeon suspected that the tendon tear was only an incidental finding and not the source of the pain. He gave me a cortisone shot into the deltoid bursa and a month of physical therapy I am using my arm normally once again. I thus avoided the unnecessary surgery recommended by Dr. Muccio.
I am a very conservative surgeon. It is not likely that I would recommend surgery unless: 1. conservative treatments (nonsurgical) have failed first, 2. are unlikely to provide long term relief, or 3. nonsurgical treatment could lead to loss of function if surgery not performed in a timely manner.
