"My life basically for the last 5 years has been full of doctors. My neurosurgeon, I did have continuous problems and his name is Dr.
. He" has a horrible bed side manner. He is good in the business. He just did not give me the information needed. He had a very bad bedside manner and after the fact that I had a 5 level spine surgery and that is a lot for an older woman. I had complaints and it was just like 'don't be a baby about it'. The availability was okay, like in between. I felt very cold when I went into the office it was professional but very cold. They made me wait for a long time. It has been since suggested that I have more back surgery which I will never have but I would never go back to him.

"Based on some positive ratings about Dr.
on other sites my wife set up an appointment with him for this past week, to which I accompanied" her. The positive aspects of the visit were that she was able to be seen promptly after calling for an appointment, the office was comfortable, and the support staff were pleasant. Seeing Dr.
, however, was a thorough waste of time. He has a very impressive web page, which characterizes him as a competent, caring, and thorough medical provider. However, in person he failed to conduct a complete assessment, he jumped to conclusions about my wife's condition, and he failed to answer most of the questions posed to him (although he did say, three times, "I don't know," pausing and staring at us after this message, with no clarification or additional information in order to assist her). Dr.
's neurological assessment was quick and cursory, and based on his comments and conclusions he did not seem to have read nor considered the large amount of information provided to him about my wife's condition before the visit (including x-rays, MRIs, etc.). Overall, he showed no care about treating my wife's pain. I would strongly discourage anyone from pursuing care from this professional, as he demonstrated no empathy, consideration, clarity of communication, nor a desire to help.

Neurosurgery

Specialists in neurosurgery are knowledgeable in hundreds of conditions that affect the entire body. Most of these conditions stem from damage or deformities in the nervous system, the brain included.

The benefit is not in "choosing" a provider that is listed on AL - it is in using AL to screen potential providers before choosing one by looking at their ratings and reading the reviews prior customers havae posted, so you get a preview up-front of what people like or dislike about them. You can also google the doctors names combined with the word - complaints - to see other blogs and comments about specific doctors - there are also a few medical-specific review sites out there. In dealing with a specialist like a neurologist, your regular general medical provider can also provide recommendations. And be sure if your insurance company requires it (almost a certainty) that you have a referral from your general doctor AND insurance company pre-approval IN ADVANCE of the first visit if you want his/her services to be covered by your insurance.

Neurosurgery reviews in Jacksonville

Dr.Piper had been called to ER twice in the afternoon so my appt. was late--not an issue with me. He spent about 15 minutes total with me: about 10 minutes looked at the recent MRI and only about 5 minutes doing a neurological exam. He said I needed multiple fusions soon because of the seriousness (based on the MRI mostly). Since I felt my symptoms were stabilized and even decreasing, I decided to get a second opinion before such extensive surgery. I was shocked to read Dr.Piper's written evaluation which included several assessments and findings that he never actually asked me about nor did he do the testing! For example, he said I had an ataxic gait (unsteady walk) however I only walked about 3 to 4 steps from the chair to the exam table. Some of the other recorded findings were not accurate in the evaluation either. He did no X
Jacksonville Neurosurgeons Provider Name Locked
but said he would do it prior to surgery. He also included a letter to my regular dr. telling information he told me about my condition, but only part of it did he actually discuss with me.
The second opinion I got was totally different. This neurosurgeon spent nearly an hour with me doing all kinds of physical tests for strength,balance, weakness,etc. He asked many questions and spent time to carefully assess my symptoms. He also looked at both my first MRI and the recent MRI side by side to compare the changes over the 7 years I started having pain. He explained the 2 MRI's to me in great detail at every vertebral level, showing me that he saw little overall change in the 2 MRI's. He recommended no surgery now unless symptoms worsened and to be reevaluated in 1 year. He also got X rays to see if the vertebrae were slipping with neck extension, which showed that all vertebrae were stable with only one moving a little. He used the X rays as further information to help him give his recommendation regarding surgery.
I would not recommend Dr

. He was nice,rather reserved, but he jumped to too many conclusions without doing a thorough accurate assessment.

He seemed very short with me. Didn't want to discuss my situation..gave his opinion on my MRI films...his findings were completely different from the radiologists notes and what my referring doctor had told me. He didn't want to answer my questions because he had told us what he saw and that was it! Very rude and condescending. I will definitely get a second opinion.

My appointment was scheduled for 2:45. I was told to arrive at 2:30. After checking in, I waited in the lobby until almost 4:00 before being called back into an exam room. I had a nice chat with several other patients-two of which were also physicians (which I think were seeing the same doc-this may be why he was so late since I think he spent most of his time with them and made me wait so long?) Once back in the exam room I waited until 6:10 PM until he came in to see me. At that time he proceeded to spend less than 10 minutes with me reviewing what the medical student/resident had done. He gave me NO new information whatsoever and did an exam lasting less than 2-3 minutes. I realize it was late but after waiting over 3 hours this was hardly worth waiting for--if that was all he was going to do, he could have just called. It was obvious he was not interested in seeing me and he did not want to be bothered with me. As we walked out, he commented to his staff that he did them a favor and didnt bother to order any tests so they could get out of there faster. I thought that was highly inappropriate and unprofessional.

It went well. I am very happy with the outcome. There were no complications or problems and he did exceptionally well. My condition is so much better now! He is very knowledgable and professional, has great bed side manner and makes you feel good about surgery so you don't worry about it. He has everything under control and does a very, very good job.
