Worst doctor ever he did si joint fusion and screwed up my back I have more pain and burning in my thigh and numbness. He said he wouldn't treat me anymore he through me to the dogs horrible horrible doctor and the staff sucks to rude and they never answer the phone you have to leave a hundred message In order for them to get back to you don't ever go there
When I first went to Dr. Lovely, I was very impressed. He had GREAT bedside manners...at least in the beginning. Another rater is right - he does not do unnecessary surgery. In fact, it wasn't until I went to the ER (for about the 5th time) and was admitted that he decided to do surgery, only to find that the disk I'd been complaining of had ruptured and he basically (according to him) had to be vacuumed out. I still had pain and he didn't want to keep treating me (seems to get bored easily). I still have a bulging disk, but I've been dealing with it for over 17 years so I guess it's not that bad. I don't remember his staff at all so I can only rate his knowledge and helpfulness which was just so so...I mean he isn't horrible and I would go to him again...I think :)
THIS IS AN EXCELLENT DOCTOR, WHO IS VERY KNOWLEDGABLE, AND TAKES THE TIME TO EXPLAIN EVERY FINDINGS, AND PROCEDURE STEP BY STEP. IN FACT WHEN I WAS THINKING ABOUT SURGERY, I WAS TOLD THAT HE IS ONE DOCTOR, WHO DOES NOT DO UNNECESSARY SURGERY.
Dr. Lovely performed MVD surgery to correct my TN problem. This was 100% successful with no ancillary issues following an extensive surgery wherein both an artery and vein were found to be deforming the right trigeminal nerve and were moved aside. The TN was gone immediately following surgery and I am drug-free. Dr. Lovely was extremely helpful and responsive to all my inquiries and had an unhesitating, no-nonsense and educated approach to diagnosis and prognosis. I am extremely pleased with the outcome and the teamwork of the neuro-surgery group.
Doesn't have a bedside manner,did 2 spinal fusions for me now I have a major hip problem and extreme pain.He told me he wasn't going to give me a chew bone for pain medication.I found multiple errors on my MRI and he said well I didn't read it, the radiologist did so I don't know what to tell you, my back problems were now worse after the sugery and he then discharged me from the practice and said ther is nothing else I can do for you!!Worse then I was before I had surgery
