      shocking rude terrible 1 1\2 hr late for appointment, less than 60 seconds in room stated 3 times that there was nothing wrong with my back, unlike 4 other doctors who stated i needed surgery
      in Kansas City, MO |
      Knew within 30 seconds, it wasn't going to work out. I had a list of questions to ask-did not get a chance to ask any of them. He is very condescending and pompous. He asked a question and I asked him to repeat- He acted like i was asking him to sacrifice his first born! Some say he is a good surgeon-don't know don't care. He may be a good mechanic, but he detests the person he is working on! Better to find a good surgeon and someone that actually cares about your body.

      He is a provider for Farmer's Ins, Workman's Comp. He is in this for the money, I feel. He gave my fiancee' a note to retrun to work, without examining him. He did not ask him if he was capable of working. The first office visit he recommended surgery, and the next time he saw him, he told him he would not do surgery because of his ITP, when he told him on the first visit it would not be a problem. If you are sent to him for a Work Comp claim, I would fight it. He is unethical.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
