terrible

Worst experience with a doctor. I am 55 and have had health issues since 9. I have been to many different doctors over the years and I can honestly say this was the worst experience to date.

No bedside manor

If I didn't need emergency surgery to fix my bone that was broke in half, I would of never picked this doctor at all. He has no bedside manor, doesn't care about my pain. My follow up appts consist of a X-ray and him coming in and twisting my whole arm with me almost in tears he said that my pains not that bad Trying to get on any type of pain meds seems like he would rather not give a new prescription and getting it refilled is like pulling teeth. I have a plate in my arm and a year later I'm still in incredible pain, which he does not agree with. I recently went to the ER and X-rays showed that the screws that are in my arm are coming unscrewed. I wanted to change surgeons for my next operation and have been told I need to see my original surgeon. In no way do I want to see this man again, I don't want him doing the surgery!! Keep looking for a new Doc. I would never recommend this dr. to my worst enemy !

Seriously?

IF you are looking for a doctor that gives a crap then keep on looking! This is NOT your guy. Average time for office call back...one week, average time to refill prescription 6 days. There are many other good doctors out there...find one!

Awesome!

Dr. Neighbor is not real talkative but is a very likeable guy...more than that he is extremely smart and is finally solving my year long knee problem. His staff was sweet and funny! He did take quite a bit of time to look at my xrays but well worth the wait when you know he is studying them to make an accurate diagnosis.

Disabling patient care by orthopedic doctor.

I am writing to bring to your attention my experience with the above named physician. He has a very unprofessional attitude in reference to patient care. I have witnessed the doctor screaming and using profanity when talking to staff as well as patients. It is my opinion that he has a big anger management problem. Due to his uncontrolled anger, medical mishaps have occurred, leaving me with permanent disabilities.
