"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
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.

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.

Concussion symptoms can range, so it's important to know how to identify signs a person has suffered a concussion and when to seek medical attention.

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.

Dr.
Pittsburgh Neurosurgeons Provider Name Locked
presented himself as very professional, astute, and highly skilled and knowledgeable in his area of expertise . . . all of the qualities that are so very important to one facing a radical surgery such as spinal fusion.
I was thoroughly examined and underwent an MRI and x-rays. Dr.
Pittsburgh Neurosurgeons Provider Name Locked
checked in with me frequently and was great about taking care of pain management as well.
He was very thorough in explaining all of the risks and potential outcomes, all the while maintaining a positive outlook which helped to instill confidence.
The surgery went very, very well, and now I'm six months out from it, and I sincerely want to highly recommend Dr.
Pittsburgh Neurosurgeons Provider Name Locked
to anyone who needs the assistance of a neurosurgeon!!!
For anyone in a similar situation, the most important attribute of a healthcare professional is that of great competence, knowledge, and skill. Dr.

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.

I had difficulty with communication with the nursing staff after surgery. It was very frustrating. I finally had to contact the Office manager to get service, because they weren't returning calls.

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.

Before I had surgery at

I was informed by Billing
department that the prepayment for the total cost has to be made (even though y
insurance does not require co-payment). I paid $2568.80 on January 29, 2015.
The surgery was done on February 4, 2015. The Insurance paid 80% of the cost
directly to

and

on February 20, 2015. It's been a month since
then, but I did not receive my refund. I made multiple phone calls to the
billing department, and every time I was promised that the check will be mailed
to me shortly. However, as of today, it was not even issued yet.

AMAZING! Wow, Dr.

is the best! He performed a 4 level Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Fusion. I was in the hospital not even 24 hours and had 2 check ups with him. His intelligence, expertise, and bed side manner saved my life. Because of him, I am living my life off all medication, most of my neck range of motion remains, and I am able to do things I haven't done in years. Yes, he specializes in brain surgery and

Ordered X-rays and MRI, over the course of two more visits, explained the surgery, the recovery, everything. His clear explanations and confidence overcame my fears. The surgery took place in May of 2014 and was a complete success in every sense of the word. The pain was all but gone. I was out 8 weeks, physical therapy was very helpful, and going back to work was comfortable. I will be eternally grateful for a second
