Heaven Sent

Dr. Engelberg was the first doctor I saw at Semmes Murphey Clinic and was MY doctor until he retired. He was upstanding and I thought the world of him and I still do. I was diagnosed with brain tumors and was very afraid and he calmed my fears with comforting words of God. This man was heaven sent and I will miss him!

I am a Registered Nurse, but was a patient under his care.

Dr. Engelberg did my first cervical disc in 1989 and my last in 2004. I have degenerative disc disease. He is now retired. I laughing told him I retired him and put his son through NYU. He did C-3, -4, -5, -6, and -7 in separate surgeries. One had stuck to the spinal cord and exposed the dura. I was in the hospital a month hoping the cord would cover over itself. It didn't. So back in with removing the hardware, chiseling out the fusing, doing a skin graft, redoing a fusion, and redoing the hardware. Not fun at all. Many people were timid with his approach, but I was not. He and I got along fine. He would make rounds very early, so I would make sure I had my questions written out the night before and he had to answer them before he left. He always had to kneel before me to check my reflexes in my legs, so I got him some gardening knee pads and a new large safety pin as a present. He laughed and he wore those pads!! All my lumbar discs are ruptured and have been for years. I will have nothing done until I cannot crawl. Also believe I have a couple thorasic discs gone as well. What am I to do without Dr. E?????

Dr. Engelberg 4-Star Rating

I am a former patient and although the wait time at Semmes Murphy can be long, the expertise of their doctors is unquestioned. Dr. Engleberg is a senior staff member there and has corrected two ruptured discs issues for me. It has been over 20 years since the surgeries and I am living proof his expertise leads to excellent results and full recoveries.
