Saw Dr Gordon he stated I could use a spinal fusion but did not want to to do because of my age ( too young ) and the possibility of needing more surgery in 10 years ... He wants me to go get spinal injections instead , which I do not want done because I know a lot of people who had bad experiences with them ... He basically told me if I dont do the shots dont bother going back to him ... just live with the pain because if its as bad as I say my pain is I will want the injections. Shouldn't I have a say of what is going on with my body?
Dr. Gordon was extremely rude, arrogant, and inattentive. I was scheduled to see Dr. McCormack and unfortunately I had to be seen by Dr. Goldberg. I explained my health history and my current symptoms. He began arguing with me telling me my symptoms were not accurate because he didn't see the pathology on my MRI. Then he told me there is nothing he could do for me. I left furious. I got a second opinion and this neurosurgeon found 2 herniated disc which was causing my sciatic pain and numbness in my right foot. Doctors like Dr. Gordon who feel they know more about the symptoms than the patient are not meant to be in the medical field. To all those suffering from chronic pain, remember you are the best advocate for your medical needs, and please find a neurosurgeon you are comfortable with before you seek treatment.
