I had neck surgery and end up with the right side of my vocal cord paralyzed. I had back surgery and continue to have back and leg pain. Because of dispute with him and my insurance he refuse to see me. I'm still seeking treatment for my vocal cord and I'm paying out money for that when he mess me up and now doesn't want to see me because I have a unpaid bill. I think this is wrong.
Just had my second surgery by Dr. McHugh. Both surgeries were due to catastrophic back injuries accompanied by relentless and intense pain. Dr. McHugh operated on me, both times on an emergency basis, the day after being admitted through the ER. The man is a God send. His surgeries were both minimally invasive despite the severe nature of injuries. I found he and Paula, his PA to be thorough and professional. I am a VERY physically active man at 54 who was still able to work out after my first surgery (had my second surgery a week ago) and perform rigorous work projects (DIY repairs, construction, etc). I am recovering very well now from my second surgery despite some sciatic nerve damage, but am certain that I will once again be able to return to my former level of activity, taking into consideration a deteriorating disc condition. The NELA area is absolutely blessed to have such a talented and excellent neurologist, as well as his equally worthy PA. As far as I am concerned, Dr. Bernie McHugh is a miracle worker.
I think Bernie McHugh is an excellent surgeon. Thorough and does not push surgery. He smiles and lets you know you will let him know when you are ready for surgery. I have had cervical surgery more than a year ago and lumbar surgery most recently. Still getting my bearings; but he had me walking on my feet the same day of surgery.
I waited for 3 months to get an appt with him. The day before my appt, got a call from office saying he had emergency surgery the next day and cancelled my appt. When I asked for another appt, was given one for another 2 1/2 months away. Since I was having a lot of pain that day, I refused and will not make another appt with him. I was offered an appt with his PA in 6 weeks but did not want to see her. Wanted to see the doctor!
