What People Say About Dr. John Gorup, MD

Two years post surgery, my cervical pain remains severe. My vocal chords remain damaged to the point where I lose my voice and I can no longer sing or do public speaking. My quality of life is poor and I remain in bed the majority of time. Please, diligently review physicians before you allow them to do surgery.

The morning of surgery, I could not walk, stand, sleep laying down, shower, or drive. The next day I was climbing stairs, free of the pain that led me to seek help in the first place. I am now at two weeks past surgery and feel better than I have in years. Would I recommend Dr. Gorup to others? I already have.

Pain is more severe and constant AFTER surgery. Gorup has arrogant attitude. He ordered bone stimulator that according to FDA should NOT be used. And, he damaged my vocals, which according to government, should have had, "informed consent." He shouldn't be working in healthcare let alone practice surgery.
