Patient Comments (3)
in Palos Verdes Estates, CA |
He refused to send me to physical therapy for knee cartilage damage, permanent limp as a result. He is often very quick to come to an opinion, such as when he glanced for a few seconds at a close friend's MRI and exclaimed "we need to schedule a surgery." He was more concerned with his pocketbook than my friend's health - my friend eventually got referred to Douglas Jackson MD at Long Beach Memorial, Long Beach, CA, with far better results. Dr, Jackson found surgery was NOT indicated.
Wichita, KS |
Today, after my 4th appointment with this man, I left and drove straight to my doctor to demand a different referral. I did not feel comfortable with him from the beginning, but hung in there and gave him a chance. Today he walked in, introduced himself, and told me it was nice to meet me. He interrupted me partway through my explaining what was going on, and when I asked why it swelled, he shrugged and said I probably tore my ligament or something more and sent me to physical therapy.
in Redondo Beach, CA |
30 minutes wait in outside waiting room. Even before he examined or give my husband a chance to talk, he drew a conclusion without concrete evidence. Since then, he has been proven wrong by my husband's PCP and 2 other Orthopedic surgeons. Incompetent, dismissive, ego-maniac, apathetic, quick to assume patients in pain want pain killers, and to get his patients medicated/numbed. He is deceptive , a disgrace to the medical profession, and should not be in allowed to practice.
