This man will cripple you for life. My surgery was deemed unnecessary and sloppy. I am now crippled for life. Mountain View Clinic in Casper at least got me back on my feet. Pain won't stop however.

I am 62 years old and for the past fourteen years have lived in misery and pain as a result of Omar Jimenez's "mistake" during my back surgery. Please do your homework and investigate just how many innocent victims this man is able to chalk up to his ineptitude. His history here is deplorable. I only wish I had the ability to inflict upon him the legacy of my life that he left for me.

I'm 37yrs old getting ready to have another fusion done and recorrected from my first fusion done by Dr. Jimenez done back in September 2013..I have been in so much pain and discomfort since the fusion, I even ended up having to have hip surgery done to fix something that he claimed to be an SI joint problem and also wanted to fuse..He is one doctor I refuse to ever let touch me for anything ever again..It's pretty bad that I had to find out what fusing my back meant from Google..
in Getting,Me. |
Dr (or so he says) Jimenez have me unnecessary surgery in 2011. I am now in massive pain for 5 years. I actually went back to him for help. He dropped me like a hot potato. I have 2 neurosurgeons in Casper willing to state the surgery was unnecessary and sloppy. Jimenez started the domino effect as now I also suffer from server spinal stenosis. Said he could do nothing more and left me sitting alone in his office. I thank God for Dr's Kopetnic and Karandacar from Casper. I hope I survive @ 55.
in Alliance, NE |
They did everything they could possibly do to aid in my nerve damage. I am very satisfied.
