back pain from wreck

I was sent to jekot for back pain that cause me to sit,stand, or walk long before I have pain. He look at a old MRI 5 months ago and said that I didn't need surgery. told me to bend over touch toes then raise up then tap me in the back to see if that hurts. yes it does hurt so he send me to physical therphy and it is not working. I ask him if he knows what wrong he say no but I know you are having back pain. so he wants to release me back to work even know I am in pain and cannt do anything. The only thing he really care about is getting me weight loss surgery besides caring and finding out the reason and what is cause of my back pain. I tell people don't come because he will not help you.

Good Doctor. All Business.

I see that Dr. Jekot has gotten several less than average reviews, so I have to interject that I have had nothing but good experiences with this doctor. Years ago he removed a tumor from a finger joint, and more recently he diagnosed me with tennis elbow, which I chose to treat with massage therapy. He has treated my adult son on numerous occasions for sports fractures, twice in delicate hand and wrist bones with pins and screws,and when he broke his ankle, Dr. Jekot kept the ankle bone from dying, which would have left him disabled. My son has regained full use of his extremities, with only minor aches during weather changes. It is my experience that the doctor does not have much patience for those who ignore his orders and professional advice. He is serious about his work, and I can see how this could be interpreted as rudeness. I have never had a problem with any of his staff, but I have seen patients snap when they are in pain or having financial difficulties and no insurance. I was self-pay with Dr. J during my last visit, and before that I was on Medicaid or TNCare. It is my understanding he does not accept those anymore, but he does accept Medicare, as I found out this morning when I made an appointment for my 90 year old mother for consultation on a minimally invasive hip replacement. I would trust Dr. Jekot with my life. I hope this helps. Don't give up!

Some doctor

I would never refer this Dr, to anyone. The reason why is when you have a broken foot and he tells you put on a show and walk suck up the pain does not need to be a Dr. Not even going to mention the rest of what this so called dr did or how rude he was to a minor.
