Stay away from this crook

Don't have surgery with this doctor. I had a spinal fluid leakage caused by him and he told me I have to find another neurosurgeon to look after me because he doesn't have admitting privileges at his hospital. I am currently hospitalized and he won't answer their calls. He did my surgery only 3 weeks ago.

Great doctor!

I've experienced a doctor who had such a comforting and reassuring bedside manner along with a vast knowledge in his field. I needed back surgery and I was apprehensive about it(naturally) but I would recommend Dr. Meagher in a heartbeat.
