Buffalo, NY |
I had back surgery on Feb 8, 2016 for three laminectomy (L3,4,&5) for arthritic Spurs narrowing spinal canal and a disectomy (L4-5 disc) for herniated disc. I ended up with fractured L3 vertebrae, bulging disc at L3-4, reherniated disc at L4-5, no cage or fusion (so no mid spine), no feeling in right foot, cannot walk without aide. Dr was very rude and wouldn't even see me for 3 mos (put me with PAs). I've lost my job & lawyers afraid to sue Drs. BE VERY LEARY OF THIS DOC. I'm not only one.

An awesome doctor. Caring, understanding, knowledgeable, empathetic, cares a lot about his patients. Only Dr. I would ever let do surgery on me. 5 stars for the doc.
He is fine when you first go there but after when you go back after surgery he does not want to talk to you you have to insist on seeing him my experience was terrible I am three times worst off then before now I can't even walk waiting to see what he has to say as he told me I would be like a new man
