Ratings for Dr. Jonathan A. Borden
Waited for at least an hour and a half in the waiting room. Finally got back in exam room. Dr. Borden came in and took one look at my MRI I brought with me. Said my back was terrible and ordered CTScan. He did not look at me once. I went out of the room to get a note for work. No one was there. They had all gone to lunch. I saw him three more times and every visit was similar. He had no bedside manner at all. He finally said he could not help me because my back was so bad it was inoperable and sent me to pain management doctor. He may be knowledgeable but I felt like he didn't care about me as a patient. Office staff was rude with exception of one guy who came in and talked to me after I had been waiting in the exam room for 30 minutes. He apologized but acknowlwdged that the waiting situation was a common occurrence. Promptness was not a characteristic Dr. Borden possessed. I was happy I did not have to see Dr. Borden again.
Dr. Borden is terrific. I have been to numerous other doctors who haven't helped me. He went through my other tests, ordered a new MRI and then immediately found the problem! He gave me and my husband a discussion of options as well as showing us models. I had surgery and felt better immediately. We are thrilled.
I would not take my dog to Mr. Borden. He was arrogant, short, had not knowledge of my past medical history, nor did he even know what medicine I was on. He had no concern for my pain or the fact I had seen 6 orthopedic doctor before they sent me to a Neurosurgeon. My EMG's came back positive for inguinal nerve damage, and had severe pain for almost 3 years. My MRI came back positive for impinged nerve in my spine. He did one twist on my leg and said it was my hip and told me to go on a diet. He was unkind and walked out of the room, I didn't know weather to leave or stay until a nurse would release me. The PA that saw me the week before saw the pain I was in when she examined me. I am a pastor and tried to explain to him I was unable to stand for longer than 10 minutes. I am walking with a Cain and in chronic pain documented on my charts if he would have taken the time to read my history. The staff also was aware of how rude he was. I have never given a doctor a bad review even if they were not pleasant, but in my opinion he may be a good surgeon, but certainly has no compassion for his patients.
I had terrible arm pain and weakness (couldn't lift my right arm). My neighbour recommended him. They go me in right away and then scheduled surgery. He put in a new disc into my neck. Outpatient surgery. I got better and back to work right away. Needless to say we are thrilled.
I have a pituitary tumor. I have not seen or spoken to Dr. Borden in almost 2 years. My complaint has more to do with his staff. My headaches have gotten worse. On Sept. 9, 2008 I phoned Dr. Borden's office to see if I should move up my MRI, due in Novemeber. Kim said she would check with Dr. Borden & let me know. I did not hear from her. I called back twice the latest being being yesterday morning and spoke to a Mary Ellen and a Pat, respectively. Each time it was as if I had never called though they admitted they had notes that I called. Each said they would call me back. As of today, 9/23 at 4:30 I have not heard from them. I will call again, but I am tempted to pick up my records and find another doctor. Very disappointing.
