I thought this doctor was smart and knowledgeable about the intrathical pump. What doctor doesn't know is how to take a patient off medicine and giving meds to help you through withdrawls. I had a horrific time after medicine was removed. All he said was, "have your primary care give you some medicine". I went through hell, he knew and never called, leaving it to the nurse to contact me. Aren't doctors supposed to HELP? First do NO harm! I will be looking for another doctor!

Not properly sedated during an excruciatingly painful surgery I felt every cut, tug, wire pulled, scar tissue removed and every stitch. My arms were tied down. Partially sedated there was nothing I could do. I squeezed the tables my arms were strapped to, moaned/groaned every time he yanked, poked, sliced me. Dr denied me tylenol. I did all the insurance paper work, cost of faxing. They lost it twice. Called late friday to cancel monday 6 am surgery (twice) because they were unprepared
