"When I got there they put me with the PA, he overstepped his boundaries and the staff told me that he was an orthopedic surgeon, which clearly he is not even a physician.I" had to make a fuss about it in order to see the actual orthopedic spine doctor, because they kept on telling me that the PA was a surgeon. Next they tell me that I needed spine injections, but I would have to pay cash even though I have insurance. I was in so much pain I was willing to do anything, but I did insist that Dr. lockstadt do the injections. He did them and it didn't work... And I was stuck with the bill. After I spoke to my insurance company I found out the reason why they wanted me to pay cash... This procedure was not covered for my condition, because this was not a condition that would be releived by an injection. Obviously they knew they were doing something wrong, and that is why they wanted me to pay cash up front. It was a horrible shame because I love all the other doctors and staff at
orthopedics and hand care and I've never had this type of unprofessional negligent treatment before. My husband was so upset about it that he complained, and the next thing you know I got a letter in the mail saying that I'm not allowed to be treated at their facility anymore!

"No problems post-surgery; follow-ups with Dr.
were prompt; I was never rushed when I was in his office. He and his staff are friendly, kind" and, although I hope I never have to use them again, I would in a heartbeat if I had to. If you need any sort of spine/back surgery, this is your team.

They're wonderful. I'll never, ever, ever, ever, EVER go anywhere else! I've got nothing but great things to say about those wonderful people, from the pain management doctor (Dr.

Macadaeg) to the office staff. I've had back surgery with Dr.

, which also turned out very well.

He came highly recommended to me. He is also a professor at Northwestern and works in the orthopedic part. I will be seeing him in April for my 6 month check up. He followed up every day to check up on me too

He gave me an epidural in my neck and I am now on a pain regiment through him. Although I had been in physical therapy for a few months, Dr.
Houston Back Surgeons Provider Name Locked
also had me continue physical therapy for a few months. The physical therapist actually referred me to this doctor and I really am glad she did! It was so bad I couldn’t raise my arm, so I appreciated that he got to the bottom of it. I never thought I could get the pain down to a tolerable level and he has made a tremendous difference in my pain level. He has made a huge impact on the quality of my life! The office takes care of any paperwork and they are nice about it.

I have been visiting for about 2 years. The doctors in this clinic are the best for spine and back issues in Virginia. Their pricing is a little high. They offer all kinds of services here. The office staff are very helpful and proactive. They have just reorganized the office and they have everything you need to go from one step to another from pre-op to surgery to therapy. They do not do the surgery in their office but they are very helpful setting that up for you. They do their own pain management. It is like a one stop shop and scheduling is not an issue. They are really good at sitting with me to explain billing and paper work.

Dr
Houston Back Surgeons Provider Name Locked
performed a double cervical fusion implant surgery on my neck
in February of 2012. Following the surgery, I suffered tremendous pain.
He refused to speak with me regarding this. My calls pleading with his staff for assistance in getting some pain meds were met with total lack of respect and an uncaring attitude. I finally resorted to going back to
the pain anethesiologist, who performed several cervical epidurals and
facet joint injections. Dr.
Houston Back Surgeons Provider Name Locked
is required by law to provide post
surgical care for 90 days after the surgery. He would not return any of
my calls. His staff was rude and condescending. Horrible horrible . . .
the chairs in his waiting room are not at all supportive for anyone
suffering from any type of back pain or surgery.
Memorial Regional Hospital Hollywood, where he performs the surgery, failed to honor my need
to be on a gluten free diet as I have celiac disease. Instead the staff would tell me that they have no gluten free soup, as I could only tolerate liquids, post surgery so I had to rely on family bringing me almond milk from home. Seriously pathetic aftercare especially considering that they performed 2 hours of pre-surgery screening the preceding day before surgery wherein I repeatedly told the nurse, that I would require a gluten free diet because of my Celiac disease.
Once discharged from the hospital, the only thing Dr
Houston Back Surgeons Provider Name Locked
concerned himself with was whether the implants were fused . . . he and his staff would blatantly disregard my pleading for pain meds as I was in 15+ pain and discomfort.
Never use this guy again . . . he doesn't deserve to have a medical license. Subsequently, I continue to
experience neck and shoulder pain, fatigue, and now my legs and feet hurt as well (neuropathy). I also a balance issue and need to use a cane when walking. I had to resign from my job because I was never able to return to work. I did not know in advance that this may be a consequence of the surgery.

He is an excellent doctor and is very caring. He was super nice and easy going. He was very knowledgeable and happy to answer any questions I had. He took over my previous back surgeons duties and was also trained under my previous doctor who was very well known and highly respected in his field. He has great nurses and scheduling is very easy.

I fell and crack a vertebrae. I went into his office on Thursday after we did the MRI’s and he told me what my options were. I opted for the re-pair and he asked when he would like for me to do the surgery. He was able to have me in surgery the next morning. I was able to have all my pre-opts. I was able to go home later that afternoon after surgery. I have not had any pain since. I am a walking miracle. His staff was good and they filed my insurance and everything is now paid off.

Dr.
Houston Back Surgeons Provider Name Locked
is highly professional, personable, and warm in her approach, and I highly recommend her services. Furthermore, I had been to two different doctors as well as two different emergency rooms that weren't able to help, but Dr.
Houston Back Surgeons Provider Name Locked
knew immediately how to treat my back issues. Thanks to her, I'm able to walk and live.
