Patient Comments (5)
in Sun Valley, Idaho |
I needed a micro-discectomy and he was able to help me quickly and did an excellent job, I couldn't be more pleased.
Carlsbad, CA |
Dr J and his PA Sari tried to take care of my spinal stenosis. I had 2 steroid shots which didn't work and then I was scheduled for a fusion of my lumbar spine. Even though I was working with the Spine Institute for months to treat this leg pain, I feel like I never got to discuss my care with a doctor. In this case, Dr J. At this point I still have leg pain and am trying to find another spine surgeon to discuss my spinal stenosis.
Caldwell, ID |
Dr. Jorgenson didn't listen or try to understand my condition, he was no help. I waited 45 minutes in a room before he came in, he was in a rush, spent less than 5 minutes with me. Total waste of my time. I'm Seeking help from another Dr.
Boise, ID |
Waited 1.5 hours before PA came in to go over my MRI. Told me I needed surgery. Asked if I still wanted to see Dr Jorgenson. I declined and left. I am now seeking out another provider.

Phenomenal. Removed hardware from my lumbar spine (S-I joint). Outpatient surgery. Surgery was at 7am. That same afternoon I was enjoying lunch on a downtown patio. No need for post-op pain meds. Thank you!
