Terrible experience after lower back surgery. He tore the covering of the nerves in my low back. After a week of agony in the hospital he did another surgery on Me to fix his mistake. 2 years later I’m still seeing a pain doctor. He won’t return my phone calls. Big mistake going to him.

Do not use this surgeon. This foul mouth braggart operated on my back and injured the nerves in my left leg and I now have drop foot. This causes me to have to use a walker and cane for the rest of my life. I called him about this problem with no return calls to help me. This is not the first time...more
