Super nice guy but doesn't seem to have enough experience. Beware of nurse practitioner Tracey. She was a train wreck and super rude.

I visited this doctor today on a referral from my Dr. was seen by a MA and the doctor didn't examine me at all. He did nothing. Told me basically there was nothing wrong and baffled by my pain since the MRI was clear making me feel stupid. I asked him why I was in pain and he stared at me like I was delusional. It took me over a month to get an appt for nothing!! I have never felt so embarrassed. I wasted my time my money for his 2 minute opinion of nothing. He sent me away with a good luck.

Initially exp was good. My lower back L2 - S1 was fused. About 1 yr Iater I still had pain and went to see Dr. Walkup. L2/L3 had not fused. Second surgery now spanning T10 - S1. After surgery the nurses moved me in bed and I heard/felt something move in my back. At T10 the rod had come out of the screw. Another surgery found that the cap on the screw was loose - along with 9 others. I fell recently and called for an appointment to be told they no longer take Medicare - poor communications

Scheduling an urgent appointment with the Doctor and not the PA was almost impossible. Not sure what we pay insurance for if we cannot get the service required.
