Patient Comments (1)
in Dayton, OH |
Had a surgery on my back for spondylolthesis for two fusions one for l4 to l5 and l5 to s1 , two incisions one in front & one in back. Afterwards i had complications. Ever time i called to let them Know i was put off, no call backs they weren't worried, my family Dr had to help with everything cuz pledger , Watson and smail didn't care. So my family dr put me on lasix & everything for the swelling & what not & I'm still not in physical therapy. They don't care cuz I have Medicaid. Don't go.
