Corpus Christi , TX |
I got surgery on my cervical spine in my neck, and after the surgery it's been over a year and I'm in more pain now than I was before surgery. Every time I went for a check up after the surgery I hardly ever saw borkowski, it got to the point I just said screw it I'll just go see a pain management Dr, bc I got no help and nowhere with borkowski. Do your research and find somebody better than him... I would never ever go back

There's an issue when you have an early afternoon appt. You get called back after over an hr wait with a full waiting rm. An hr went by before Dr came in. No exam. Office was cleared out. Way to treat a patient.

Very professional, knowledgeable and great people person

Dr Borkowski assessed my situation as I walked by him at his hallway admin area. He diagnosed from my poor ability to walk before he entered the exam room I was too high risk for the surgery I came to him to get relief as an orthopedic surgeon.He thought my pain too much to allow me to bear weight on my radiating pain riddled feet legs and thighs due to chronic disc disease and precluded surgery due to the intense pain. He was flippant and disrespected my wife's query with the "MRI cant talk"

1st appt was great, referred me to pain c. They only offered injection which at 35 I don't want, would rather get in shape. Rescheduled w Borkowski I was 1st appt of day, waited an hour while others went in. When seen, he was whatever about medications. Asked about side effects of one, 'well then stop taking it, I'm a surgeon then referred me to another pain c, the nurse says this is for injections. Wish docs listened these days. Sad, disappointed, and in pain. Another 75.00 down the drain.
