Knee Care reviews in Bridgeport

  • A

    My husband was referred to Dr. McDonough by our family physician for the constant pain in his knee. X-rays had been taken and an MRI had been done; both in the past 3 weeks.
    Our second visit to our PP was on Friday, May 10, and the referred appointment with Dr. McDonough was Tuesday, May 14. I was impressed they got us in so quickly. We brought a disk copy of the MRI with us for them as requested.
    Upon arrival at Dr. McDonough's office, we were greeted with a well run, highly efficient staff. It seemed as if everyone knew their job and did it well! We waited only about 10 minutes before we were taken back for BP and temp. readings; then whisked off to X-ray for a couple more films (this time standing, instead of laying on the x-ray table). This gave them a clearer picture of what was going on with his knee under pressure. Next stop was our patient room where we waiting about 15 min. for the Physician's Assistant (PA) to come and ask many preliminary questions. He was very courteous, thorough, knowledgeable and helpful. After he left, we waited another 15 minutes for the doctor to come in. He, too, was warm, friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. He explained my husband's options. The diagnosis was severe osteoarthritis and a torn meniscus. Given my husband's age (56), we weren't surprised at the OA. My husband opted for an injection of a corticosteroid in his knee for pain relief. The other options which we chose to follow were physical therapy, a specially fitted brace, weight loss (if possible!) and an anti-inflammatory prescription. After the doctor left the room, the gentleman from the and quot;brace-fitting departmentand quot; came down to check our insurance first. When it was authorized, he next took measurements. He said the brace would take 7-10 business days to come in. We will need to go back to Morgantown to have the brace fitted on his leg and shown how it works when it arrives. The brace's function was the take pressure off the inside knee (where the bone-on-bone problem is) and transfer it to the outer part of the knee. Basically, it straightens the knee perfectly upright. The cost of this brace before insurance was in the neighborhood of $850. Luckily with our insurance, our part was only 20% of that; still not inexpensive though! But if it does what it's supposed to, it's worth it.
    So far (4 days later), the pain has been helped by the injection received, and PT has been set up. There was no follow up visit scheduled. All in all, we were both very satisfied with the whole experience and would recommend this doctor and his staff highly.
