Patient Comments (3)
Lincoln, NE |
I had carpal tunnel surgery on my right hand & it was covered by Work Comp. Dr. Gove only gave 2 days of recovery time with the restriction of no use of the right hand for the first week. I couldn't dress myself, couldn't drive, & couldn't type which is what I do all day at work. Using my left hand for everything caused the carpal tunnel symptoms in that hand to act up. He refused to change the time off & tried to blame it on work comp being a pain at my f/u appt. He was patronizing & rude.

Horrible experience, surgery was unnecessarily extremely painful, the local anesthesia was extremely painful, due to not being administered correctly. Stitches after the surgery were so crudely done, that the wound healed with a very thick and painful scar, (in my right hand, and I am right handed) which after almost two years has finally stopped bothering me. I would Never let him do surgery on me again, ever. Maybe he's just young and inexperienced, he seems nice enough as a person.

He's not very bright when it comes to needing a doctors note for work etc. he put me in a brace on my hand for a month said I needed to wear it full time and only remove when bathing. When I explained my job situation. I've been on disability because of the and am unable to type with the brace on he proceeded to say it was up to me and stated in his reports that I chose not to work. So now I'm screwed with my disability claim and am having to return to work after only two weeks of the brace on.
