Wrong info given to me by this dr hurting me terribly. Shoukd have never had surgery feel like a robot now. Never will be the same. Please try conservative treatments. Dont listen to the route of epidurals and if they dont work to have someone cut you open and put all kimds of metal. Really that very rarely helps anyone. Still in the dark ages. Need a different mindset. These drs are not learning the real cause of pain. They will realize if they go through pain and then go through this

I met Dr. Pigeon for the first time yesterday and was very impressed with his honest and clear opinion of my back. Unfortunately there is nothing to be done due to the severity of my osteoarthritis in my spine but he explained everything to me so that I understood the reason why this was so. He even took the time to explain the results of my MRI as well as the x-rays that had just been taken. I never felt rushed and all of my questions were answered to my satisfaction.

Caring, gentle man. I never felt rushed and everything was thoroughly explained. I had a spinal fusion and all went well. He explored alternative treatments before the surgery. He has incredible credentials!

Rest assured that Dr. Pigeon is one of the finest surgeon that I have ever known. No micro-surgery here, my back was a mess. I could hardly get out of bed in the morning and could not walk without pain. After the long surgery and a caring rehab team I am PAIN FREE. Thank you Dr. RICHARD PIGEON.

Spent a lot of time explaining my condition and going over the X-rays and MRI. Didn't seem to be rushing us out. Dr Pigeon was very nice, friendly, knowledgable, and had a great bedside manner. He made me very comfortable with him examining me; he was thorough and yet careful about hurting me during the exam.
