    I would highly recommend them. Dr. Russell Tigges does knees and hips only out of their practice. He is phenomenal. They are very good. The only downside is that sometimes you have to wait but for them I wait. They have grown and you don't really have to wait very long at all now. The follow up they have is great. They have wonderful physical therapy units. Their physical therapists are wonderful. They are very good. There are a lot of doctors with the group and they are just really good. I would definitely use them for anything.

    After my MRI's, I went back to discuss results. I had seen the MRI reports myself earlier, but he just gave me a quick summary saying I had some arthritis in my back and neck (when in fact the MRI reports detailed where I had bulging and degenerating discs; I know this causes arthritis but the specifics would have been useful to me). He wanted to send me to the pain management program as well as physical therapy. I said I had a question about some chest pain I've been having, and began to give him the background. At which point, he interrupted me and said, and quot;You said you had a QUESTION?and quot; The whole experience felt like being in a factory and this is conveyor belt medicine; no time or interest for anything but the basics. Dr. Perkins' rudeness really made me angry and I will never go back, nor recommend this particular doctor. Other docs may be better.

    Dr Jason Melnick
    Dr Melnik caused some of the most brutal pain for me during my six months of back pain prior to surgery. It took 10 phone calls with his office (over 2 weeks) to clear up medication problems. I was referred to Dr Melnik by another orthopedist in his practice. It took 3 weeks to see him. During my initial consultation, he only spoke with me for a few minutes, didn't really listen to what I had to say about my pain, took me off pain medications for 2 weeks, and treated only what was most obvious from my MRI. Percocet and Lidocaine patches were theonly things keeping my pain in check. He prescribed Lidocaine cream (which did nothing for me) and took me off Percocet. Then, when I complained about the pain, he added Tramadol and Lidocaine patches. After 10 (ten) phone calls with his office complaining about my pain, I was told that he wouldn't prescribe Percocet, but that another doctor that I was seeing should prescribe them for me. These were prescribed for me immediately and the worst of the pain stopped. I'm not sure that he even reviewed my MRI, maybe just the radiology report. He focused on a large synovial cyst as the cause of my pain. I've since learned that the pain constellation I was having is associated with spondylolisthesis, but he didn't figure that out because he didn't spend time speaking to me about my pain. He performed an epidural cortisone shot 3 weeks after my initial consultation with him, but it didn't help, because the cyst was not the problem causing my pain. I had him go ahead with the surgery because I was in so much pain, even though I didn't trust him to do the right thing. The doctor I did find that correctly diagnosed my back took a lot of time for questions and answers back and forth. It turns out the instability in my back is hard to diagnose from still images unless one is looking for it. He can only look for it if he speaks with the patient. Seeing him caused me a lot of pain,created weeks more of pain, delayed me from getting a correct diagnosis, and added a small surgery that I didn't need. I'm sure he has treated other patients better, because he would be hard-pressed to treat them any worse.

    Wrong diagnosis and wrong procedure by Dr. Gamburg. Rude manner. It could not have been worse. Avoid this so called "Doctor of Medicine"
