My Mother is in ICU because of this doctor. He injected both of my Mom's knees, causing a life threatening infection. I have called his office munrious times and without a response from him. The doctor at the hospital who did surgery to clean up the infection in her said he has called him with no response. If y value your life or family member don't go to this doctor.

My mother was scheduled to have a left knee scope. The anesthesiologist could not find a vein!! The surgery had to be cancelled but Dr. Bush decided to inject her knees to give her some relief. Within 24 my mother could not walk and was temporarily paralyzed. My sister and I have tried numerous of times to reach out to Dr. Bush's office to no avail. Less than 72 hours my mother was in the Emergency Room. Within hours she had to have surgery on both knees. She has developed a serious infection

Do not go to this doctor. He injected both of my Mom's knees, causing a real bad infection, she is in ICU now. I have called his office munrious times and we still have not heard from him. Even the doctor who had to do surgery to remove the infection said called him and he has not called him back. It's horrible that he has caused so much pain for my elderly Mom, and don't have the human decency to call us back, to see what's going on.
