Patient Comments (2)
Elmira, NY |
Dr. McClurg squeezed my 90 yr old mother in to his busy schedule the day we called about a hip bursitis flare up. He treated her with an injection, explaining everything in a clear, concise manner. Her pain eased within 24 hrs. She was able to walk within 3 days. During prior bursitis occurrences she had seen 2 other individuals but had to wait 2-7 days for appointments. One of those times she was given the same injection while sitting in a wheelchair and received no pain relief.
in Almond, NY |
I was referred to Dr. McLurg through my physiatrist due to hip pain from arthritis. I explained my other medical conditions of hypothyroidism and fibromyalgia and how they had played a part in my pain. He suggested a conservative course of steroidal injection in my hip and the procedure was scheduled for the next day. My experience with him was pleasant and he was very professional. His office staff was considerate and friendly. All in all so far a good experience.
