Ratings for Dr. Daniel E. Brier
My 5 year old son was diagnosed with levoscoliosis 24 degrees. He also had a Chiari malformation which can be tied into scoliosis, but an MRI needs to be done to verify this. Dr. Brier refused to do an MRI. Had to go to the University of Chicago, where the neurologist and neurosurgeons felt it was necessary to have a brain and spine MRI done. Good thing we did. My son is now going to go see a neurosurgeon for what is called decompression surgery. Also, called Dr. Brier's office over and over about a pediatric orthopedic referral for the scoliosis. It took the office 2 1/2 months to even call and make the referral. If my son's Chiari and scoliosis link had not been caught by the doctors at Chicago, he could have ended up dead or paralyzed. Dr. Brier's reason for not doing the MRI? My son was too young to hold still. At Chicago, the MRI was 3 hours long and he was sedated with Precedex. No problems with the MRI at all.
Dr. Brier has been our childrens physician since my oldest was born 13 year ago. I am always very confident with the explanations that he gives to us. He takes all the time that we need and his bedside manner can't be beaten with our boys! He always talks directly to them, not over them to us. All of the doctors in this practice are good, but Doc Brier is the best!
