Dr. Fuiks is a terrible doctor. Absolutely no bedside manner. Does not respect the family of the patient at all. Does not listen to family at all. Barely listens to the patient. Let me ask you this, is it normal for a patient to have a HOLE, that is right, a HOLE in the incision for months after the surgery, that kept draining?!?!? My 80 yr old dad had to pack this hole 2 times a day, for my mom for months upon months. It took a plastic surgeon to fix his mess. STAY AWAY FROM THIS MAN.

STAY as far AWAY from this man and his office as you can. I understand how many years of schooling he had to do but in the end, he puts his pants on one leg at a time just like us. Many times my parents were in his office for an appointment, have been waiting for 2 hours, only to have them say they had to cancel their appointment for the day. What my parent had to go thru at the hands of Dr. Fuiks, no one should have to endure that. Please, Please, research other doctors and pick them.

Dr. Fuiks did surgery on my mother, a 77 year old woman. What was supposed to take five hours took almost 13. He didn't see her in the hospital for almost a week afterwards. He installed 3 rods and 18 screws. My mother is in more pain now than she ever was. Of course his solution is to do more surgery. New neurosurgeon says she will most likely be paralyzed soon or die because the rods are protruding out of her back, and when they break through the skin will cause death.
