Ratings for Dr. William M. Rambo, Jr.
My wife was seen by Dr. Rambo who, was supposed to be the best in Columbia for cervical neck pain. She has had epidural shots, and has been told with two pinched nerves a degenerating disc and a bone spur surgery and fusion were her next and only option. We met with the P.A. for 20 minutes, Dr. Rambo came in the room, stayed maybe 5 minutes my wife was told she needed a new MRI and we would see him after that. He then left. we then had to fight to get the MRI approved, we asked his nurse for help and she stated curtly she could not help and do not call me again, I am going into clinicals. They received the results of the MRI called my wife today and said it's not that bad no need for surgery we are cancelling your follow up! My wife can hardly use her hands, is in pain 24/7 he had no follow up, no P/T suggested, nothing, she was not worth his time. I assume she has to be bone on bone before they will do anything for her here. No worries I will scour the country to find her help and will never return to this practice again! (not that they care)
I was a Police Officer with a serious and painful injury to my neck that was preventing me to do my job to the best of my ability. Dr. Rambo and his staff were amazing! I came in, he evaluated my injury, scheduled my surgery (next day) and now I'm feeling the best I've felt in a long time! I would recommend him to anyone!
I saw Dr.Rambo today and am having surgery next week. He has great bedside manner, was very positive that he could help me, and was very knowledgeable about ruptured disc in my back. He wants to help me get my life back without debilitating pain.
Dr. Rambo is the best! He relieved my severe spinal stenosis in my lower back in January, 2015 and I had complete faith and trust in him as he had performed surgery on a herniated disc in my neck in 1999. I am thankful that my family doctor referred me to him, and I would definitely recommend him to others!
It was a nightmare seeing him. He said you'll be ok. I made the mistake of asking when I might start to feel better because I wasn't going to get anything more than another Pain PILL : (. He said "DOES IT LOOK LIKE I HAVE A BALL TO LOOK IN???" He didn't accept my insurance but put more than $600.00 from my insurance company. I still feel confused about why they would pay a doctor that would not treat me that much money to tickle the bottom of my foot & watch me walk down the hall!
We only saw Dr. Rambo once to know that he wasn't the doctor for my husband. Dr. told him he would do fusion if he lost weight for his L4, L5 herniated discs. I simply asked how he was supposed to loose weight if he could not walk or at least stand for more than 5 minutes. Dr. Rambo did not offer exercises that could be done and immediately ended appointment. We only spent our copay of $40 and left feeling relieved that it wasn't more. I can only imagine that the surgery would be for money only. Still seeking a surgeon to relieve pain if anyone knows a great one. Dr. Rabo's staff were great. Only wish Dr. could have been.
Dr. Rambo is the best. Back surgery is no game! My husband had spinal fusion of three vertabre and Dr. Rambo took his time to explain the procedure, explain all of the possible outcomes-good and bad, and answered our questions. His staff are equally wonderful in providing assistance like answering the questions we came up with after the doctor visit, providing quick response to the forms we needed completed and just generally having smiles whenever we were in the office. The wait after checking in at the front desk is great---the most we've had to wait was about 15 minutes. Most times it's maybe 5 minutes! You couldn't ask for a better doctor to provide you with such good care and have a great bedside manner as Dr. Rambo provided my husband---and our peace of mind!
