 |  First Experience with Neurology  |  show details
by MnMom58 on Oct 16th, 2013

Dr. Rudd was willing to see me on short notice, but he is neurosurgeon, not a neurologist. (which is the testing I needed) He did take time to do some minimal strength testing. He reviewed my MRI with me and made appropriate referrals. His weakness is lack of warm bedside manner. He is very scientific, would not anwer any questions until he was ready to. He seemed to minimize my symptoms a bit as I had half of my body numb with limited function. On the positive side, he would probably be a good spinal surgeon to use.

This neurosurgeon had zero bedside manner-was almost cruel in his examination of me because I was in severe pain at the time. I would NOT recommend him to anyone.
