Lexington, KY |
She refuses to see me as a patients even though I was referred by another orthopedic surgeon!! At first I was told after reviewing my records that she didn't have any appointments. Then they said she couldn't help me. Is she that poor of a doctor that she can't help??!!

Dr. Degnore diagnoses patients before she sees them. When she does see them she refuses to listen when the patient explains that her diagnosis is not close to what is going on. She diagnosed me with hammertoe, stating it was from me wearing heels everyday. If she listens she would of heard that I have had RA since I was 12 and I never wear heels. I left her office crying. I went to another Dr to find out that my foot was broken and I have a nerve condition, not hammertoe. DO NOT SEE DR DEGNORE

Dr Degnore is an honest and skilled surgeon. Everything she told me about my surgery and recovery was true. Actually it ended up being a little easier, probably because of the excellent care she gives every patient.

Dr. DeGnore was very nice and explained everything and answered all questions. I feel safe un der her care. Would not have problem recommending Dr. DeGnore.

Been to several doctors and was referred to her. She said my issue was minimal. I can't walk or stand for long periods of time without significant pain. Limiting my activity with my kid. I thought my issue might be from an old injury. She blew me off and her next commit was that she doesn't do workers comp cases at all. Made me feel awful like I was just there for another reason. Was trying to get help. She let me know she does IME's. Not willing to help when I was just trying to get help

Most caring and respite surgeon I ever had
in Lexington, KY |
Dr. Degnore was highly recommended to me and may be excellent. I was treated rudely by the scheduling staff, was dismissed, and never able to schedule an appointment. I was told we'll go over this and get back to you, as if a prior recommendation and history was not enough to justify an appointment.
