NO chance we would recommend this dr to anyone! OR the incompetent family dr who referred my husband to him! He has severe knee pain (not from an injury) and has been at a #10 pain level for WEEKS while we wait for one of the drs to offer him relief. I'm pretty sure he's thinking about cutting off his own leg!! It's been 10 days since his MRI and we still don't have results from that test. Now they say they've referred him to a surgeon, but who that might be is apparently a secret! Steer clear!!
I've never once left a review, but after my apt with him I had to. I got injured at work and went through some PT and then my case was closed. I had it reopened because I was having leg numbness and tingling as well as the same back pain. I drove an hour to have him tell me it wasn't sciatic related, which is ridiculous! I work in healthcare and I know it is. He refused to do an MRI. He workers for insurance companies not the pt. It was the worst experience I have ever had with a dr. Hes a joke

I was seen by Dr Ronan two years for hip pain. He 'assumed' then I had bursitis, prescribed a medication to take as needed. If pain worsened to come back for a shot of cortisone. I went back to get that shot (luckily that didn't happen). He took x-rays, said it looked like tendonitis to do PT for 8 times. My first visit at PT she said it wasn't tendonitis, it seemed more like bone. I went to another 'surgeon', need a hip replacement. Ronan, not a surgeon, doesn't do hips.

I actually know the dweeb from two points of view....as a patience via referral and as a IME appointment. As patient, he was slightly below average. (Please note I was in the Spine device field so I have enough experience to make a weighted rating) As far as the IME, it is well understood in the medical community and appears to be in insurance field that the good doctor has NO problem forgetting his oath to "Do no harm" he is all about who is paying the bill. BRING A RECORDER TO YOUR APPT

My insurance co. sent me to him for a second opinion. After a 15 minute evaluation, he wrote a report for the insurance company saying that I had reached preaccident status so no longer need any type of treatment. I have been treated by a skeletalneuromuscular specialist for the last three years as well as a neurosugeon for symptoms resulting from a car accident that have not been resolved but with therapy makes pain manageable. My doctor filed an appeal and letter of disagreement.

Dr. Ronan is basically an insurance liability doctor. 15 min. visit and he can figure out that my back doesnt need injections after having a herniated disk. Give me a break!

The doctor just doesn't make the correct diagnosis, or give proper treatment, twice. On my last visit with complaints of migraine after cervical surgery he could have taped me to see if that improved the situation. But instead fobbed me off to Mary Free Bed, and a program with ridiculously high copays As a Medicare patient it was unadvisasble. And he never checks to see how his patient is faring. Everyone is a one off.

I also had to see this doctor for a workmans comp injury. A tree had fallen on my head at work and had broken my back. I was having a difficult time recovering because I was sent back to work without physical therapy and or weight restrictions. Dr. Ronan of course said that I was just fine, even though I was not. Dr. Ronan was getting paid by the workmans comp doctors to take me off their bill. Now I'm stuck paying medical bills that were caused by an accident at work.

I don't know why there are so many negative reviews about Dr. Ronan. I had my first appointment with him today. He was very thorough and caring. He provided a proper diagnosis and an appropriate treatment plan for my condition. I would definitely recommend him to anyone with a back issue.

Dr Ronan is very good at giving blocks. He has good manners.
