She was very sweet and had a good bedside manner but after I saw her she ordered a MRI and I had it and she disappeared for 3 months. No one would tell me where she went or what happened. she did not schedule my pain block and expected my primary Dr.to do all the work. She seemed very weird to me and unprofessional to just leave and not leave her patients some kind of explanation. I did not use her any more when she came back. I went back to my original Dr. and they got my pain block scheduled. I would not trust someone to cut open my back and spine that just disappears without an explanation.

Horrible Dr. dont let her touch you nor her Nurse PA at UAB Medical West..

would not recommend her . she did surgery on my neck and I'm still having problems. she did not do what she said she was going to do to begin with she called the day before my surgery and said she looked over my films and decided to do different disk than what she 1st said. I only seen her once after my surgery, seen her Nurse PA who by the way was not to helpful her self. when I asked when would I follow up with the dr. (still having problems and even was in physical therapy) her Nurse PA informed me she had discharged me but if I was still having problems in 6mos to make a appointment she would follow up with me then. Really !! I don't think so!! I still don't have feelings in part of my arm nor my last digits on my hand and to top it off having pain still to this day !!!
