What People Say About Dr. Robert Render, DO

Dr Render had zero compassion for my pain levels. I was recommended by my family doctor and from the first visit I had bad pain in my hip area. He ordered an MRI of my hip area. Nothing was found but I had to goto the emergency room in Bay City because I couldn’t walk anymore. They gave me a shot and a muscle relaxer which for the first time in 3 weeks gave me relief for about 1 hour. Through all of this his office knew that my blood pressure was through the roof because of my pain. His staff is really friendly and nice to work with. He then ordered another MRI of my lower back and found that for the last 3 months I’ve had a ruptured disc. Only pain relief he offered was a steroid shot. His staff called me and said that he won’t see me anymore because he doesn’t do spinal surgery. I might be out of place but I shouldn’t have suffered for 3 months with no compassion from Mr.Render. My experience with him was horrible and I won’t be referring to any family or friends to him ever. Thanks

I have not seen him yet, but I look forward to doing so. He is highly recommended by a friend of mine who has had the type of hand surgery that I am seeking. I also noticed a review that addressed exactly what I need and it was very positive.

Awesome Doctor. Did carpal tunnel release on both hands on different dates. I did not need any pain medication either time. I am very impressed with his surgical technique and will continue with him.
