I had serious neck damage due to a combination of arthritis and an automobile accident. The search for a surgeon was most difficult as my pending insurance case was not close to settlement and some surgeons did not want to become involved at that point. Other surgeons were too busy or had no experience in repairing the extensive damage. I located Dr. Chi on the Internet because it was difficult to obtain a recommendation from the diagnosing neurologist as well as any other Doctor I knew. Dr. Chi was not able to see me right away but was able to arrange an appointment with me within a fair timeline. Our visit was well planned as I found Dr. Chi had studied my problem before our visit and was prepared to offer options for both surgery and rehab. Dr. Chi felt that rehab may work on a temporary basis but that surgery was definitely the best way to proceed. I chose the surgical option as Dr. Chi's detailed explanation quite clearly showed why is need surgery in the future regardless of the rehab option's result. Dr. Chi's preop staff was well trained. I found them to be compassionate as well as knowledgable in regards to the upcoming surgery. The preop meetings took place in a timely manner and a nicely organized agenda. The scheduled surgery took place in time and was most definitely a success. All Dr. Chi told me he could do happened. His preop plan was carried off without a hitch. I feel great thus far. My expectations are that this will continue. Dr. Chi most definitely took care of my situation because he was a Doctor first who could help me to walk once again as well as regain use of an arm. My condition and repair was all Dr. Chi was interested in. The insurance and legal issues were not of concern to him. His priority was his patient. Thank you Dr. Chi.
My surgery went fine then had a complication. He never returned a call from that time until I left the practice a month later to have surgery elsewhere because he was putting me off for an unreasonable period of time. Never got a call to check on me when pain was severe and I had to call neurosurgeon in the middle of the night. He doesn't do any physical examination at all...spends minutes with patients. I've heard this from others as well.
prior to surgery with dr.chi everything was great..post op was a nightmare ...many complications(very serious) a surgery that I was surpose to be in for 1 day ended up being 8 days,he only saw me once..follow up visit was horrible he blamed his co-workers for this life threatning expiernce..He was referred to me by a well known md @bwh so I thought I was in great hands apparently not...If you need surgery I would look elsewhere would not recommend..Having surgery at bwh(one of the best hospitals) was the worst expiernce of my life .
