Great surgeon

Dr Paraiso is an amazing surgeon. I have suffered for years with horrid back pain. I had spinal fusion surgery with Dr Paraiso 11 days ago and my pain is gone.

FELT ABANDONED BY SURGEON

Dr. Paraiso did my 2nd fusion in my back. I was very comfortable with him. However since my surgery 2-15 I have numbness down my left side and asked for an emergency appt. instead I waited almost three weeks to c him. His assistant Katie came in to c me first and asked if I would b willing to have another surgery to fix the problem, absolutely was my answer. Then dr. P came in said he can't find anything wrong and there is nothing more he can do for me. What did Katie c in my scan that he didn't, also he said I no longer had scoliosis when the report in my hand clearly said I did. I pointed that out to him and he got defensive. Did he even read the report because I did while I was waiting. Then my pain managent dr makes me an appointment for emg with a dr with a one star rating. Dr. Sharma. Well that appt. was today and I cxl'd it quickly. Is there a payoff of some kind I wonder. Dr. P is one of the best surgeons that I have to b clear on but y refer me to best surgeon and then worst physiatrist.
