After 1.5 hours of waiting, he spent 2 minutes looking at my MRIs, said he saw nothing, then asked the radiologists, who reminded him to look at the fluid scan, and he came back saying surgery, surgery. He didn't listen to my questions, didn't suggest anything conservative for starters, and I later found out that surgery was completely unnecessary. Plus, 6 weeks ago, I called his office twice with a question for him on the MRI but still haven't heard back. Got the bill quick, though. $eriously?

Excellent Doctor! He explained everything in detail and was very caring. He made sure I was satisfied with my surgery and called me to follow up after.

I feel he performed unnecessary surgery on me.
