He assured me id feel immediate relief, & be back to work in 2-3 weeks. I came out feeling worse than I did before the procedure.As soon as I woke up,I immediately broke down,because the pain was so intense.The sciatic pain was unbearable!All he'd say was "this doesn't make any sense.Ive never had this happen before. All my patients have felt immediate relief". (Which was a lie!) 2 yrs later,I still cant work. My last follow up,he didnt even see me. He sent the nurse to dismiss me.

Speedy Gonzales..... 5 to 10 minutes and he's out of there. Bedside manner is zilch if that kind of thing bothers you. He's an excellent surgeon but don't expect him to hold your hand. No empathy for patients..... just his personality I guess.
