Mrs.

At 17 years old I had 2 emergency brain surgeries for a brain tumor. . I was helicoptered to Hahnemann University and he met me upon arrival. He put me and my family at ease. He was very thorough explaining everything to me . He changed my life in so many positive ways. I followed up with him and had nothing but great experiences from him and his staff. He has a great bedside manner and I will never forget him and always be grateful to him for saving my lie. I now am a RN and worked with neuro patients for many years and know how great it feels to help others.

WORST, WORST, WORST DOCTOR EVER!!!!!!

I can not believe after reading these reviews my gut was right. I had a fusion at c 5/6 back in 2002. I was in so much pain... he promised I would feel 100% better and I would feel great! After my surgery I didn't see him 1x in the hospital. I complained how much pain I was in and something didn't seem right. He had his nurse check me. I have been to so many dr's MRI's/Xrays but the plate distorts the imagine so its hard to say what is going on, I have been on so many meds and deep tissue massage ect.. still have pain. His nurse ended up quitting and not long after he moved. He is such a deceiving person that I wouldn't call a doctor. Beware!! I really wish we could all do a class action law suit against him. he is getting away with this and its not right! he shouldn't b living high on the hog while all of us are suffering because he is just out for money. I couldn't bypass giving him no stars for rating so had to pick 1.

lumbar shunt for brain disease gone bad!

I was sent to Yablon after many attempts to drain the fluid off my brain. It was determined I needed an Lp shunt. My mom went with me to the appt. to talk with him about the surgery. he promised me there was no problems, it would be easy and my headaches and my eyesight would all get better with time. that with the lp there would be no problems. I asked about failure rates any issues it may have. he informed me that there isn't any. they are almost failure proof.I had the surgery in nov. on 2013. I ended up in the ICU was in the hospital for two weeks. He sent me home, made a follow up apt with me for a month later. in that time I was in horrible pain. my incision in my back had opened up and was oozing. I was in the local er 4 times. (im 5 hrs) from him. they called him on every occasion, his answer put a Band-Aid over it ill check it when she comes in. Once back in his office I could barely walk. I was in tears in the office, he told me well I never heard of back problems after an lp shunt and sent me on my way. oh he did order a ct scan had the front desk guy call me and tell me "theres nothing more he can do for you, you need to follow up with you gp" SO this guy did a wack job spinal surgery and tells me to follow up with a gp. since then it has been found I have nerve damage from the shunt being placed incorrectly in my spine. and now im in the process of possibly having to have a revision done on this stupid shunt. it could have been all avoided if it was placed correctly the first time! a rare brain disease, an lp shunt placed incorrectly and a neurosurgeon who could care less about his patient. but hey he did bring my mom some peanut brittle while I was in the hospital before he went to go play some golf. I did file a formal complaint, really that's all you can do with this one. the amount of papers you have to fill out is covering him to no end! please please do your research and go somewhere else!

PARALYZED BY SPINAL CORD STIMULATOR INPUT BY YABLON

I had spinal cord stimulator surgery in 2008, performed by Dr. Yablon. DO NOT HAVE SURGERY BY THIS DOCTOR!!! I woke up from my procedure permanently paralyzed from the waist down. After hospital discharge, he basically "wrote me off" as far as help and follow-up care. I also signed the pre-op release & was not able to sue for malpractice. Now, he has moved from NC to CA. Just be careful!!!!!
