Terrible, does not know how to read MRI, bubbling idiot. Could not give a diagnosis if it was a broken finger. I should not of even given him a star period. Got second opinion and review from Dr. SCHERPING. SCHERPING is great. If you are in Kaiser Network and need back surgery, stay away from Ergener and see SCHERPING he knows how to take care of you.

Recently had spine surgery by Dr. Ergener; the surgery was very successful and Dr. Ergener brought me a new lease on life. I highly appreciate Dr. Ergener's surgeon skills. Thank you!

Dr. Ergener is very sensitive and compassionate to his patients illness. I was diagnosed with a herniated disc by two neurologist that planned me for emergency surgery. I went to Dr. Ergener for a third opinion, and he thoroughly explained my illness and said that he would not authorize surgery. Based on the X-Ray, he said my condition would heal itself. He ordered Acupuncture and Physical Therapy. He used a skeleton to show me the fracture and where the pain originates. HE WAS AWESOME!
Horrible! He was rude, arrogant, and unprofessional. He does not like to answer any questions. He did not know what was wrong with me so he looked up A syndrome on Wikipedia!!! He printed out 10 pages and sent me on my way. Since he was mad because I asked him a question... I was trying to talk to him and he put his hand in my face and shushed me 3 times!! I would never recommend this man to anyone ever! He also did not know how to read my MRI's. My visit was a waste of time! No stars!!!
