Bristol, CT |
Beware! Won't address your preop pain issues if you ask for something will treat you like your a drug addict even if your history shows little to no usage. His medical assist will respond with what do you want now stated iam gonna hammer chizzel and saw and when iam dome with you your gonna be in 10 times more pain. Also know of a current patient having to get her procedure redone. doesn't know what's in medications because he stated Percocet has codeine in then recanted it oh it's a derivitive.

Dr Cucka during the initial visit was personable and friendly however when it came to pain management prior to surgery he was callus and indifferent. Some of the staff were rude and made me feel as though I was exaggerating my pain in order to get narcotics which left me no alternative than to take medications that not only didn't help my pain but sent me to the Emergency Room with stomach issues. All the while knowing there were medications that would have mitigated my pain to tolerable levels!
