Dr. Minster is Sr. Monster

He did back surgery on me and messed up 3x in a row and caused me to have a bone infection, stroke and seizures. I was in the hospital for 2 years and had to get fixed at the U of M Hospital and have 3 more surgeries to fix his mistake.

Dr. Minster is a very kind and extremely professional Dr. He takes the necessary time to diagnose a problem and discuss options. He is compassionate which many doctors are not. I would (and have) sent other patients to him.

Two Stars

The office staff at the Saint Clair Shores location is very rude and unorganized. No one has a clue what's going on and could care less about the patients. Getting a simple doctors note is impossible. The wait time is extremely long, my last visit was a 9 am and I waited for 2 hours before I even saw the doctor and my shortest wait was around an hour and a half. Dr. Minster performed my first scoliosis surgery last summer. Tne surgery was not successful and I will need to undergo another operation. I was very confident in Dr. Minster's abilities for achieving success in my first scoliosis surgery, but I am currently looking for a new surgeon to tackle my revision surgery
