Horrible experience! Admitted to hospital in excoriating pain on Monday and informed I would have surgery that morning. He insisted my surgery was a “simple procedure and should be done as day surgery” I was bumped off the schedule for two days and did not have surgery until Wednesday afternoon. I did not receive DVT prevention even after requesting it because he did not feel it was necessary. My post op pain was not addressed and I was sent home since that was their routine. For months every appointment I had was with a RN or NP since he was too bust to keep an appointment. I had a DVT requiring surgery to keep my leg, nearly lost my life and my back was a mess, in constant pain!!!! Interventional radiology made suggestions for follow up, which he disregarded. I would be dead if I did not find another doctor. I have since had the same surgery done by another surgeon. I am now pain free and getting my life back on track. NO thanks to Dr Clough.
Dr Clough performed a lumbalaminectomy on me 3 years ago, I was heavily druged & couldnt walk, & was told Id have to be on pain meds forever.Im now a body builder,in the best shape of my life,& I dont even have to take a tylenol,I have no complaints,at all, he knows Neuro"
Dr. Clough and Dr. Bamber both should be inducted to Sainthood! These are the most caring, knowledgeable men in Neuro in the Kansas City Area! They take all the time that you need, talk to you on "your level", and Rachel their nurse goes above and beyond! Don't even look any further, these are the docs you need!
All of these comments are right on. My father was a patient of his, and thought so much him. My father died of a condition that was not curable when I was 21, and Dr. Clough cried. I remember him being so sweet and supportive to my family. It is amazing to see a neurosurgeon that is so intelligent and yet doesn't lose compassion for his patients, which I'm sure many of them he cannot help. Yet he gives you hope just like posted above. I called him last week about a concern of my own, and he returned my call the day before Easter to make sure I am okay. He is truly a blessing to his practice. If anyone is aware of national awards for neurosurgery I would write a letter of recommendation!
I would like to second that. Dr Clough is a very compassionate caring doctor. He never rushes you. He takes the time to listen and talk to you. He is worth the wait. He is a highly skilled surgeon. He also lifts you up in spirit with his optimism of hope. Absolutley not the typical surgeon. Not the typical surgeon in any way. If you are ever so blessed as to meet him, you will remember him forever.
