Dr. Degen is the absolute best. First off his office staff pays attention to detail and really works with you to get you in quickly. Once at the office we were greeted by the doctor himself after a short wait! He explained everything in detail and listened to all questions my husband had. In addition, the surgery that he performed was MUCH less invasive then our first opinion. They wanted to have my husband wear a surgical collar for 3 weeks and they also wanted to take bone from his hip bone instead of using a cadaver. That last part takes weeks to heal! Before and after surgery the doctor made sure to see me as I was waiting in the waiting room. He first allowed me to ask any question I had, and then updated me on my husbandâs progress. Almost immediately after surgery my husband felt feelings in his fingers again and NO PAIN except for a bit from the surgical site. But no cervical neck pain. A month later my husband is doing great and the PT staff (at a separate facility) are thrilled at how well he is coming along! If he worked a desk job he would be back to work already. The office staff continues to help me with the billing and everything is easy and stress free even though he wasnât in network.
I think doctor degen is a great doctor and does a wonderful job explaining your diagnosis and all the treatment options. For me it was a long road to surgery scine the doctor recommended other less invasive iptions to see if they would help to avoid needing surgery. When the time came to have the operation he was wobderful reassuring and put all my anxieties at ease. I didnt get the results i was expecting from the operation but he lwt me know ahead of time not eveyone reponds to aurgwry the same way. I am still dealing with the same problems i was before the operation but i think he is a great doctor. The hopital room i stayed in at Good Samaritan hospital was pretty diety but that didnt have anything to do with him. Dr degens staff are very friendly and always return calls.
