"Arthroscopy to repair torn meniscus April 2014. Entire leg bruised 2-3 weeks post-op. Knee would not straighten, foot crooked, great pain walking, no change after" 4 months twice weekly Physical Therapy. Dr. never examined knee after surgery, never asked me to walk, no X-rays taken. Said all was normal, some patients take longer to heal. During
appt. I demanded X-
, Dr. said healing normal, if I'm still dissatisfied by Sept. would consider full knee replacement. Not a single call from Dr. - either immediately after surgery, after extreme bruising, after continued pain. Maximum time spent in post-op office visits 5 minutes. No bedside manner, no caring attitude. Clearly not invested in less than successful outcomes. 8 months after surgery, walking not improved, extremely painful, using cane. Consulted another surgeon - now full knee replacement required.

"He takes the time to explain what is wrong and all the treatment options. I have seen him 3 times in total and he makes you feel like he will spend all the time you need him to with you.

It went very well. I had physical therapy and exercises and I am almost back to normal use of my leg. The best thing is that the pain is gone.I like Dr.

Dr.
Providence Sports Medicine Doctors Provider Name Locked
Field was very unprofessional and very rude. I cannot believe how I was treated there. They're nice there. There are at least 60 people in the waiting room. You wait for an amount of time and they get you back. He's very rushed. He's not personable. It was a mediocre visit. I couldn't get back to him because it's the holidays. He rushed it and he was really unpersonable. I mentioned that I fell. He was sitting on the bed and I was sitting on the chair. He leapt off the bed and started talking to me in a very loud voice getting up in my face and telling me that he will do the surgery on me. I literally started crying. I was horrified. I was in severe pain trying to get something done of my shoulder. I was traumatized. I went to have an appointment with another doctor. I was so upset.

was recommended by a walk-in clinic. When I entered the office, the two ladies at the front desk were not unfriendly, but they weren't the kind to go out of their way to provide great service. At the second osteopathic surgeon's office that I ended up going to, the front desk had Ipads for patients to use, and were quick to offer their assistance, which makes it so much easier if someone has a broken arm or hand, but at Dr.
Providence Sports Medicine Doctors Provider Name Locked
's office, they just had everyone filling out paper forms by hand. The wait was quite long and the Physician's Assistant was not particularly welcoming or engaged. He only asked a few questions, told me to remove my splint and then - as it turned out -the office visit notes that I requested copies of the next day were not even accurate. The office visit notes indicated that I had denied having any food allergies when in fact, no one asked me that question and I do have food allergies; the notes also indicated that I had denied having any fall, trauma. pain, stiffness or swelling, when in fact, I came in with a broken hand that certainly was from a trauma, fall and resulted in pain, swelling and stiffness. Finally, Dr.
Providence Sports Medicine Doctors Provider Name Locked
entered the treatment room and didn't even make eye contact with me. He took a precursory look at my x-rays, asked me to cross my fingers, then slumped into a chair and said I would need surgery right away. He didn't touch my hand or palpate the swelling nor did he explain the nature of the fracture and damage, what exactly he would be doing and what the non-surgical alternatives might be. He said that he would have them schedule the surgery asap, so that my bones don't fuse together. I tried to get more details from the Physician's Assistant on my way out, specifically about what my non-surgical options were and he said, high risk of arthritis and other issues, but didn't really address treatment options. The office visit notes that I got also stated that the doctor had reviewed with me all non-operative treatment options, when that was not the case. I was not at all pleased that this surgeon's office would charge me $250 and not even give me a full and accurate evaluation. I left feeling that I had not gotten a full picture and I cancelled the surgery date and opted to get a 2nd opinion from another doctor. I am so glad that I did, as it turns out that - after looking at an MRI (which Dr.
Providence Sports Medicine Doctors Provider Name Locked
's office did not even recommend getting), - the 2nd osteopathic surgeon said that I have a 95%
Providence Sports Medicine Doctors Provider Name Locked
of avoiding surgery. All I can say is, I was very disappointed in the lack of depth and breadth of my evaluation.

The surgeon was cautious and took a progressive approach with pain pills first, then a steroid injection with followup X-rays, MRI and finally rotator cuff surgery (one month after initial visit) followed by physical therapy. Overall, the most professional and competent medical group I have encountered. In addition, each person acts as if they are concerned about your personal well-being rather than treating you as just another patient.

They're really, really good. I just finished up with them and they're excellent. This was my last visit with them. I've been going to them for a few weeks. I couldn't even walk when I went in there. I was dragging my left leg and I'm kind of back to almost normal. They're very good. The office is friendly, pleasant. The staff is very friendly, very nice. They email me with the exercise that they've given me. They send the bill to my secondary insurance so I haven't gotten my bill yet. They just send it after Medicare to the secondary. I would absolutely use them again.
