Patient Comments (2)
in Birmingham, AL |
Very poor visit beginning with arriving at office for 1:00 appointment only to find door locked and surly staff who pointed out I was interrupting their lunch hour. Waited over 45 minutes to see Dr. Staner, who, when he finally arrived, an extremely poor communicator, very brusque and uncaring attitude. Demanded another MRI when I had one less than 3 months prior. Only solution for crippling back and sciatic pain was that I have bariatric surgery!?!?! I do not recommend Dr. Staner whatsoever
in Rainbow City, AL |
Dr. Staner did back surgery for me in 2015, he is a super doctor and I would recommend him to anyone with back issues. The remarkable thing is that he isn't knife happy. He won't operate on anyone who cannot be helped!
