He made my life a living hell. Went to him for surgery on my neck. He put in a plate and cadaver bones. 3 months later and 6 moths later had unbearable pain. His suggestion was to see a pgychiatrist. Went to Jefferson to a GOOD doctor who said 2 screws were broken, bones had not healed in a one year period. Had to have entire procedure redone. Thanks to Yablon, I now live on pain killers.
I made an appointment for a consultation, which I thought would be just that. Waited for about an hour and was so rushed that I can't tell you whether he is knowledgeable or not because I don't think he really took the time to see what was wrong. He took an already extemely frustrating experience and made it even more stressful by not taking that time. You could see that there were at least 3 other patients "waiting" to be seen, so I felt like I was just a number, not a person looking for some real answers. He did not talk with me, more at me and most of the time he talked more to my husband than to me. I had thought that I was the patient....! I had gone into his office with high hopes of getting some real answers and left feeling like I had taken three steps back. Needless to say it was not a good visit and I will be letting the doctor who gave me the referral know about this as well.
Expect to wait at least an hour after scheduled appointment to see him, I waited 2 ½ for last appointment. And, expect to be disappointed when you do. If you don?t know to ask the right questions you will receive little if no information. He is overbooked and, therefore, could not and would not spend time with me to help me understand my injury and, more importantly, how I was feeling during recovery. I had a laminectomy/discectomy and suffered all night in the hospital (no sleep) because he does not believe in pain meds (I did not know this when I scheduled the surgery). No intravenous medications administered after recovery room and no pain meds after first week of surgery. I was in pain for several weeks after surgery and he would only prescribed xanax for my anxiety, which was a result of severe pain and lack of sleep. He managed to magnify, tremendously, this very physically painful and stressful experience. As far as knowledge, It was not shared with me.
