Do not trust Dr. Mebrahtu. He's dishonest. Used him for Worker's Comp. He ordered MRI & other tests. He got paid $400 for his deposition but refused to testify on my behalf. The next day after court at my office visit he was rude and uptight. He said I could come back in four months if I want to. Would you go back to him after being belittled? He never explained the results of MRI. 1yr later and now I need back fusion. He did not inform me dIsk was leaking plus other issues. Run Run Run

i will never recommend Dr Mebreatu. i went into the office scared about a new development with my chronic illness and looking for help. he immediately cut me off any time i tried to say anything. he was rude. he said he didnt deal with my illness even though i scheduled with him because i was told by staff that he did. his bedside manner left MUCH to be desired. i walked out of the room in tears because i needed help and he in no way was going to even offer advice LET ALONE help. still charged

Very Bad bedside manner. Didn't let me speak, I had questions.. Was abrupt and talked over me. Did not show any compassion, knowing I was just diagnosed with a debilitating and painful disorder. I was scared and confused. Waiting time to see any of the doctors at SSN is ridiculous!! I asked to change Doctors after my second visit. They were not very pleasant about it..I hope to get out of that Clinic and find another place to treat my condition. I would not recommend him.
