I was a healthy 53 year old taking no medications. I woke up one morning with a slight pain in my lower back. In two hours I was a paraplegic. This doctor came into my hospital room and hit my legs and backed out of the room just telling me I had no reflex in my legs. I am a paraplegic because this doctor spent three minutes with me and charged for a full examine. My disease has a three day window and this doctor 's explanation was, he didn't have the time. He could of referred me to another doctor, if he did not have the time to examine and order test, instead of destroying my life. This doctor paid another law suit for the same reason. With a proper diagnosis, I would be a productive person today. If you simply type paralized sudden onset in the search window, my disease comes up..... this doctor did nothing but give me three minutes of his time.

Patient privacy and confidentiality prevent full discussion to this unfavorable post. To sum it up, I can say that for over 30 years, I had the opportunity and privilege to be involved with the diagnosis and treatment of thousands of patients and their medical and neurologic conditions. Many have continued to be with us since the start of my practice in 1980. I would like all of our patients to have good outcomes and pleasant encounters. Unfortunately, for a variety of reasons, that has not always happened. I know our staff and I take criticism seriously, and work to improve our service on an ongoing basis.
