Cabot, AR |
I saw Dr Cathey recently. I saw him about lower back pain, I've had surgery in the past and Dr Cathey was adamant that he didn't "believe" in lower back surgery. Suggested that I was stupid for having it before. I asked what I could do about the pain and he said pain pills, I told him that I had trouble functioning with pain meds. When I asked what other options I have, he said a Wheel chair. He said "the bad news is, you'll probably live another 20 years!" Unbelievable! No compassion

This doctor is a complete joke. I was in a car accident and went it for an appointment. He didn't spent 2 minutes with me, told me there was nothing he could do and that he wasn't that kind of doctor, then proceeded to take $300. Additionally the AC sounded like it was going to blow up and I wasn't even greeted by a nurse upon arrival. The check in counter has a closed window and they didn't open for like 20 minutes.
