Dr.
did surgery (fusion) and the pain was immediately alleviated. Three days after the surgery, I was able to go up and down stairs. I returned to work about 3 weeks after the surgery with minimal discomfort or difficulty. Three months after the surgery, I was cleared to resume normal activities. I have no pain and have not experienced any loss of movement or mobility.Dr.
was quietly confident and his bedside manner was professional and warm. He is honest and concise when communicating. I did not need someone painting a
picture...I needed to know what was wrong and whether or not it could be fixed. My return to normal activities speaks for itself in terms of the effectiveness of the surgery.Dr.
's surgical team was top notch and reflected his professional standards. From start to finish, I could not have asked for a better experience and outcome.

They would not give me an appointment. They said they will only take appointments up to the
Chapel area and I live over 45 minutes away from their office. I have never heard such a thing about the distance being a factor in taking new patients. They didn't even ask for any other details regarding my insurance or situation. They just declined their services becuase of the area that I live in.

I am an informed female who works in the medical field. I arrived promptly to a locked office. When a staff member arrived to open the door, they unlocked it and walked away without opening or greeting me. i was the first appointment of the day. I waited for over an hour and a half before being brought back to a room. I had an MRI report and films indicating that I had a ruptured disc. I had already endured four weeks of tortuous pain (a large piece of ruptured disc was sitting on the sciatic nerve bundle), which made it impossible to lie down or sit or drive. I had been to PT, but the therapists refused to do further work. I had taken a wide variety of drug therapy (narcotics, anti-inflammatories, nerve pain drugs) that were all in-effective due to the nature of the injury. When the doctor walked in, he coldly asked me what type of pain I was experiencing. I answered I that I was having severe sciatic pain. He replied loudly and slowly, "In English! Leg? Back? Arm?" I'd charted my last 4-5 weeks of medical history for his benefit (and mine so I could be accurate) and he yelled at me to put it away, that he didn't want it. In the end, he told me that he would schedule not surgery without waiting SIX MORE WEEKS because that is what the guidelines recommended. I reminded him that I had already endured four weeks and that guidelines were only that and that patient care should be individualized. He did not budge, saying that insurance would not allow surgery. He would not prescribe or entertain discussion of pain management options for my debilitating and severe pain. Most importantly, he refused to fill out paperwork for my job. My job requires me to drive for 90% of the day and driving was now impossible. He gave me a "can return to work" slip and would not assist in my paperwork for Short Term Disability, which I was already on due to the requirements of my job. I was sobbing in the end. I am not a

normally, but I was in severe pain with a a doctor and staff would could have cared less that I was so upset. I received a 2nd opinion at another doctor who surprised me by saying that insurance would absolutely cover the surgery without argument. She informed me that the disc piece was very large and the symptoms had worsened (instead of improved) and that I was at risk for permanent nerve damage. In short, I am three weeks post-surgery (AND TOTALLY RESOLVED AND CURED) when I would have JUST arrived back for a second visit with Dr.

I was referred to Dr.

after discovery of a brain tumor. Since mine was not an emergency situation (How can that be?), it took a about 8 weeks to get an appointment to see him. He was extremely thorough and explained every aspect of my situation, the surgery, risks, possible complications. He showed me the pictures of my brain and tumor, and he explained everything in terms that were easy for me to understand. After the initial consultation, it took 5 weeks to schedule the surgery.
