Patient Comments (6)
Bardstown, KY |
I trusted this doctor and had spinal surgery only to be in more pain than ever. He is very rude along with his staff. I made a complaint agaist him with the hospital he worked for in Louisville KY! I would never recommend him. Wished I had gone to another doctor.
in Sheoherdsville KY |
Complete lies! Told me I would be back to work i 2 weeks! NOT possible! I cant get anything perscribed for the pain. Pain is worse than before surgery. You call his office and his "girlfriend" screens all his calls and you will never get to talk to him. He is NOT concerned about my pain which is now 24/7. The hospital is completely as incompetent as he is. The computer system is very unreliable so therefore I laid for 12 hrs without pain meds due to the computer system and useless uncaring nurse
Met with Dr. Shanks after my mothers surgery he is a great.
Union City, Tn |
Dr. Shanks accessed my spinal x-rays. Gave me an accurate diagnosis and recommendations to relieve my discomfort.
Park city Ky |
Experience was awful.dr performed major surgery on my spine an did not make sure I had proper pain management after surgery.was sent home afterwards without anyway to control post surgery pain.i suffered needlessly for weeks with no explanation why I didn't have pain management after a major operation.this is sadistic to do to a patient that had major spine surgery.he shouldn't be allowed to practice.
Louisville, KY |
