Not recommended

Never examined me, copied exam findings by another doctor, didn't review films. Wants to do major surgery but didn't explain details or possible results. Staff unable to correctly document correct medical history or drugs/allergies I submitted. Medical errors waiting to happen because of bad documentation. Patients, always review your records -errors follow you to the next doctor, can cause insurance problems.

Worse doctor

My primary doctor send me to see the specialist because I have nerves damages, scar tissues in the neck, upper back and head. The specialist is the worse one ever!! Tell me that I should go back to my country to get treated, it's nothing wrong with me and didn't even do a check exam the only thing he did is to check my reflex of my legs!!! I came for neck pain, migraines and lost of strength of the right arm.

cervical and lumbar surgeries

He never rushed me. I had a lot of pain and many damaged areas in my spine after a car accident. He went to extremes to be certain that the disc he was going to remove was the area causing the pain. 5 surgeries total and 9 discs are gone. the pain is gone and I still work, walk, play with kids, play with the dog, ride horses, swim, hike. My only limitation is I cannot work leaning slightly forward or my low back starts to hurt. He literally saved my life because the life I had with the pain was not worth living
