flat on his back on an icy sidewalk, motionless and unable to move his limbs. The life of the Angie’s List member in Mundelein, Ill., changed with a single, fateful slip during

Sounds like you should be pursuing a disability claim.  Also, you could speak to your previous doctor frankly about your concerns.  
Have they made orthotics for your shoes that distribute your weight better?

It's a nice office and conveniently located. They have an excellent staff, easy to talk to and who you can work with to get information if you can't reach the doctor. They have dedicated days for surgery and dedicated days for office. He gives detailed information about the procedures.

recommended conservative treatment, which I think was appropriate for a start, but, in the end, did not fix the problem. I think that he is a good doctor, but I was put off by the fact that I often had to communicate with his physician assistant, instead of directly with him. When I did talk to him, he seemed to be in a hurry to get out the door when I had questions. I also found his staff to be frustrating to deal with. I often called and had to leave a message, and many times there was no response to the message and I had to call again.
- Geoffrey B.

Friendly, super competent, efficient, prompt, no complaints. Great clinic care and follow up care. They actually call you after you get home from surgery to check on you! Everything and everybody has been put back together and functioning well.

Broke my leg June 2013 and had to had surgery on June 21st. Next appointment with doctor was on

10th and cast had caused a blister and the blister burst and leg was covered with dried blood. The doctor did not clean wound, just put a medicated bandage over wound and told me to clean wound when I showered, said he would see me at next appointment which was Aug. 7th. I called doctor around

20th with concerns about the incision getting bigger. Saw the doctor on

22 and again he did nothing, just told me to come back in a week or two. So went back on next scheduled appointment on Aug. 7th and by this time the incision had gotten bigger and I thought I could see hardware. I asked the doctor if I was seeing hardware and he said it might be. He referred me to wound center, where they treated two wounds that you could not see hardware, but the wound with the hardware they did not treat (they did clean that area up). I asked the wound center why they did not treat the wound with hardware and they said they did not treat wounds with exposed hardware showing. Went back to Dr.

later in Aug. and wound was getting bigger (I could see up to five screws in the hardware) and Dr.
Hereford Orthopedic Surgeons Provider Name Locked
said I had three options 1st remove hardware and hope bones were strong enough to hold up without hardware or 2nd do nothing until bone is strong enough and then 3rd was to put in a external fixator. By this time I was frustrated and did not what to do. I went to another doctor who was willing to remove hardware, new doctor was very hesitant to do surgery, but I said Please, I did not want to go back to original doctor. Hardware was removed on Sept 21st, but since the skin over this area was so thin the wound did not close. I had to go to OHSU and had to have a free flap surgery done on Nov. 7th. The free flap is still healing. I believe if Dr.

had done better with follow up appointments and cleaned incision I wouldn't be in the condition I am today. Dr.

is probably a good surgeon, but his follow up and concern are horrible.

Very pleased with Dr

. She had extensive tests conducted to determine the extent of damage and provided me with options for the care. Her plan of action was to use the least intrusive measures first. I was very pleased with her

I attended the second appointment with Dr
Hereford Orthopedic Surgeons Provider Name Locked
for the back conditions that my daughter was diagnosed with. At the first he recommended physical therapy to strengthen her core, which we did for approximately 8 weeks. The physical therapist also said that her hips were weak, which could impact the core movement and back pain, so he worked on that too. Her back improved slightly, but that was the prediction from Dr
Hereford Orthopedic Surgeons Provider Name Locked
. When I informed him of what the physical therapist had said and what he was working on, Dr
Hereford Orthopedic Surgeons Provider Name Locked
actually laughed audibly at me and said, "Okaaayy?" The student working with him actually got wide eyed and seemed to acknowledge that his behavior was out of line. I was stunned silent and did not know what to say. He proceeded with the appointment and left the room to return after x-rays were taken. When he left the room, my daughter asked me why he laughed at me, to which I responded, "I'm not sure but it certainly was not very respectful." Upon his return, I decided I would bypass the disrespect and get as much information about my daughter's back as possible, knowing that I would not be returning. He gave us big words and details that obviously mean nothing to the average person, and then asked me if I had questions. My response was, "No, not at this time." When he asked my daughter if she had questions, she responded, "Yeah. Why did you laugh at my mom?" He kind of smirked and said, "I didn't laugh at your mom," and discounted what she had asked. I just put my hand on my daughter's knee signaling her to let it go, which she did. We left the appointment knowing that we would not be returning, despite his vast knowledge of orthopedics. This was unfortunately not the only experience like this with Dr
Hereford Orthopedic Surgeons Provider Name Locked
, however. My oldest daughter was also under his care for scoliosis years back and he was the same brief, egotistical self at that time. We only returned to him on the recommendation of our primary care physician and the fact that he is knowledgeable. I actually put his 'importance' ahead of my daughter's instinct about him - I will not make that mistake again. He was sure to list off all of the 'well-known' people he had fixed over the years and said he could put us in touch with one of them to ask questions, which we declined. I have no doubt that Dr
Hereford Orthopedic Surgeons Provider Name Locked
is a competent and knowledgeable doctor and that his technical skills are probably good, but his 'bedside' manner in this case left very much to be desired. I cannot have faith in a doctor who audibly laughs at a parent and belittles them, especially in front of their daughter. Although I left without any type of anger or incident, I thought I needed to make people aware of what had happened. My daughter's back issues are probably on the 'mild' side (as he put it) of things that he 'normally' deals with, but she is a person whom I love dearly and want the best for despite what he sees in his office. Maybe if your orthopedic issues are extreme or 'less mild' he might seem like a savior, but in this case, all it turned out to be was a high priced consultation which left me feeling stunned. If you are looking for a competent doctor whom will belittle you in front of your child, and one whom will be sure to point out that you are not an orthopedic doctor, he is the one for you. My family, however, will be searching for other competent doctors whom actually respect people.
