    in Sterling Heights, MI |
    His bedside manner could be better, he comes across as very arrogant, that he can fix everything. His surgery only helped temporarily and he believes any problems are my fault. He never listened to me about all my knee surgeries which obviously affects the way I walk on my feet. He did not provide me with a scooter for my recovery, just told me no weight bearing for 3 mos...with two bad knees!!! I had to buy my own device to get to my own bathroom..unless I was to scoot on the floor at 51 yo

    I had my left ankle crushed to the point where 4 doctors said amputation was my only option until I had Dr.Needleman ,he was able to save my foot and get me back to standing and walking on it again.it has been a long process over the last 6 years and with three surgical procedures all done by him I have nothing but good things to say about him and the care he shows for his patients.
    The worst doctor I have ever had. I have had nothing but complications since my surgery and he REFUSES to check it out. In debilitating pain and still unable to work. Some days I can't even walk! He just says he did his part so I should be fine now. Clearly I am not. Got a second opinion and doing new scans to disprove this hack. Hope no one else ever sees him again!
