My wife was diagnosed with a very large brain tumor in 2014. Surgery was long and extensive. Dr Egnatchik is an amazing surgeon. My wife almost died after also battling pneumonia shortly after surgery...but she battled through and is doing great 3 years later. Doctor Egnatchik is just wonderful...recommend him to anyone!
Waited months for an appointment to see him for surgery. PA was supposed to brief him about my MRI. He came into the room and knew nothing at all why I was there and tried to tell me to do physical therapy after I already did that and had other treatments as well with no relief, have a bulging disc pressing on a nerve and am having atrophy now because of it. Would never see him again. Office staff was also very rude as well. Thanks for nothing. Would give for zero stars for review but that is not an option.
Dr. Egnatchik performed my spinal fusion in 1990 after I fractured my spine in am automobile accident. After all these years, I am now 46 years old and have ZERO limitations or problems with my back. He is the best!!!!!! Please don't consider anyone else to do your surgery- I would go back to Dr. E in a heartbeat:
