I had shoulder surgery in 2011. I had no problem getting an appointment, the wait time was not excessive. I felt a genuine concern about my situation. He didn't first want to do surgery especially since my MRI showed nothing wrong but a bone spur, but he did not dismiss my pain. He showed me what he saw on the MRI and explained everything thoroughlly, after a while he said well let's go in and see what's going on. As it turned out my bicep muscle was 60% severed. He fixed it and this arm is just as strong as it can be for my age and activity level. Now I had another injury to my back and knee, i wanted him to be my doctor! I had my knee surgery and i am happy to report that i have received the same wonderful care from him and his staff as I did the first time! If he still worked with back patients he would be my choice again! He has a good bedside Manor and a wonderful since of humor!
Dr Pujadas told me my insurance company required me to have physical therapy 3X a week for 4 weeks. [at a co-pay of 50.00 a visit] When I called the company to ask WHY would I need PT before a hip replacement they said they did not require it. The place he was sending me to he is affiliated with. I assume he was just lining their pockets. When I asked for a temp handicap placard, I was told to get it from my primary. For my 1st hip replacement it was given to me without my asking for it.
