  • After the surgery, where he cut off a piece of my clavicle (collarbone), I completely lost use of my right arm.  The pain meds didn't work and 2 days later, my hand was numb even though a block wasn't used.  I called Dr. Provider name locked. , who said "I didn't operate on your HAND" and "Take a couple of Advil." 

    The next day, I took off the bandages to discover that he had done OPEN, not arthroscopic surgery, even though there were "no complications."  Instead of a 1" incision for OPEN surgery (which his online leaflet says), I had a 3" incision and ANOTHER 1" incision next to it, like a railroad track.  I asked Dr. Provider name locked. when he took out the stitches later that week WHY he did open and not arthroscopic, as we agreed.  He said, "Because it was faster."  (Total surgery time was 18 minutes!).  I repeated what he said, and he replied, "oh, I meant that it <Provider name locked. >healsProvider name locked. > faster."  I replied that I thought that arthroscopic healed faster, and he said, "Whaddaya worried about the scar!  It's only an inch!"
    He again refused to give me a script for physical therapy.  After I insisted, he gave me one for FOUR visits  (the norm for this surgery is 18).

    Although the clavicle degeneration was "mild" at the time of the accident according to the ER, because I did not have physical therapy, the bone in my AC joint was destroyed, and the degeneration was "severe" at the time of surgery, according to the pathology report.

     What is most horrifying is that, although I visited Dr. Provider name locked. office 3 times, he failed to diagnose a torn rotator cuff, damaged Provider name locked. , Hill-Provider name locked. fracture (in the humeral ball), severe tendinosis, and dislocation, which I discovered when the first MRI was done by another doctor.   Dr. Provider name locked. ' misdiagnoses and clumsy surgery on my AC joint, which would have been totally unnecessary had he followed a normal standard of care and might not have been necessary anyway since it wasn't the cause of the pain or catching, have left me with constant shoulder dislocations from minor things like lifting the vacuum cleaner or putting down my brief case, permanent hideous scars, deformity due to the massive scar tissue underneath, neck seizures, debilitating ongoing pain, tendinosis which can NEVER be undone.  The rotator cuff, which was not repaired in time, has turned to fatty tissue meaning that further surgery is unlikely to be successful. 
    The pain and catching are ten times worse than before the surgery, because it was the other injuries, not the clavicle, which was catching and causing the pain.   I am in horrible pain, and for 6 months, couldn't even be gently touched.  My life has been ruined.  I may never be able to successful compete in the sports I once loved.
    I have undergone 2 procedures at another hospital, still in physical therapy after 8 months, and am now awaiting another surgery. All because of the unnecessary surgery, poorly done.

     I will never have normal use of my arm because of a rude, uncaring, incompetent doctor who couldn't be bothered to take an MRI or Xray, take 10 more minutes to do an arthroscopic procedure, examine me properly, or show up for a pre-op appointment. I have been left with a mountain of medical bills, and lost substantial income because I am self-employed.

  • Dr Provider name locked. was great the day of the surgery and for her followup.  He kept me informed as the day went on, and was very attentive when I raised a concern during the recovery process (nothing to do with the hip surgery).  This attentiveness resulted in him and his residents finding a small Provider name locked. cancer very early on that would likely have gone unnoticed for quite some time.  For this we are very grateful, as it could very well have saved her life. 

    We were extremely pleased with the outcome, and with Dr Provider name locked. .  She is more mobile now than she has been for many years.

  • He is professional and has a good bedside manner. He is easy to get an appointment with and is punctual. His medical and administrative staff is good, but his clinic office staff is unprofessional. They chew a lot of gum, have a lot of piercing and talk on their phone a lot.
