I recently came to OrthoGA cuz of knee problems. I found out they had a hand specialist, Dr. Blackwell. I simply asked for an appointment and was given one. Upon seeing Dr. Blackwell he thoroughly explained Carpal Tunnel to me and how it is repaired. He immediately ordered a nerve study. Upon diagnosis he scheduled the first surgery which has been a complete success with minimal pain and discomfort afterwards. I saw immediate results following the surgery. I have reported the symptoms to my regular physicians for years with no tests or treatments. Thank you Dr. Blackwell, you are awesome.
The same for me. The treatment from the office staff has made me to scared to call for help about complications after surgery. I was called by someone who spoke so fast I couldn't get a word in. I wanted to ask questions about meds and severe headaches but couldn't! She said what she needed to say then said umm, ok buh bye! Then hung up! Didn't ask about the patient, if I had any concerns, nothing.
do not feel dr is taking me seriously. Feel disrespected. Waiting on callback from 5 hrs ago, regarding negative change in condition. Hopefully, this can be resolved, and my opinion will change. We will see.
i can't grade this mans office on his work but I can tell you his office staff is the most unprofessional people I've ever met in pediatrics. I didn't even bring my child just after the conversations on the phone and their nasty attitude. Told me the doctor wasn't in and that he worked only 2 days a week and that they were only by referrals (which I had) and when she kept trying to keep me from making an appointment she said he'd review the X-rays that I had at a later date and get back with me! My child's doctor called and they told them someone review his X-rays and he needed to come back in 10 days to get a follow up X-ray, by this time I had already found an ortho doctor to see my child. When I saw the doctor at the other office I found my child broke his fibula in the growth plate and needed to be in a cast not a splint for 6-8 weeks. I wouldn't come to this office just because of the staff....who reviewed my child's x rays without the doctor in????? If I could give a -* I would've
I went in to talk with Doctor Jeshuran about back surgery and after talking with him about a ruptured disc, the first thing he recommended was a full fusion surgery. I went to Columbus Ga to get a second opinion and they said no no no all you would need is a disc shave. He also said that he would rather have to do a disc shave 4 times than a fusion surgery. Fusion is a last resort. In short Ortho GA is all about the money. I have talked with numerous nurses in the area that also say they have a higher than normal infection rate. Please do yourself a favor and research your surgeon and do not deal with these people unless you absolutely have to.
