mothers surgery

Mother had surgery and was worse after to the point she could not walk. Obtained a 2nd opinion after being told she needed another surgery after 1st one took 7 hours. Went to see a Orthopedic Neurosurgeon who removed all the hardware and replaced with new hardware that only took 3 hours and my mother is free of all pain & symptoms. My mother was a Workman's Comp case. I feel Dr Richards was taking advantage of this. Her symptoms became much worse the day after surgery and come to find out at the Post Op visit, he did not revise the hardware area we had discussed and put on paper.

Saw dr. Richards for Chronic sciatica from disc damage. Spent lots of time with me reviewing my MRI in great detail. Gave me treatment options with +/- for each. Day after surgery I can't believe how well I feel! When you make a decision on neurosurgeon, take a look at the patients in the waiting room, ask them about doc. Tells a lot..that's what I did. Dr. Richards patients look well, some smiling and laughing with one another, not miserable. He's always got a smile too.

Dr Richards saved my life. I had 3 brain aneurysms burst one night. I live up in northern MI and he somehow got me down state in time to coil them and keep me alive. There are some issues but if not for the doctor and his staff I wouldn't be here today.
