Ratings for Dr. Samuel S. Jorgenson
He did my 1st surgery back in 02. Very good but over 12 years I had to go back for the next level. His associate was highly recommended, Richard Manos and he performed the new prceedure to go in from the side. He had difficulty working with the older technology hardware but got the job done and had such a great recovery.
Dr. Jorgenson did a C4-C6 fusion. The fusion worked, but the hardware for the lower plate (C6) was put in a downward angle and invaded the C6-C7 space. Now I have to go have the plate removed and completely redone. I recommend staying away from this quack.
Dr. Jorganson has not been a good experience for me. Medically he seems fine, but he schedules patients every 15 minutes, so he is always running an hour or more late when I have seen him. He does not listen to your problems and is does not seem to have the patient's best interests at heart. I would write more, but it would identify me to him and I am not sure he would not figure out how to cause some punitive damage as I am still working with others in the same office.
I have a fusion that failed in my neck. From a surgeon who used to work with Dr. Jorgensen. Which needs repaired. A herniated disk which is eating the bone above it alive. IE. Degenerative disk disease. I have been waiting months and months for help. I "thought" I was doing the right thing by going to Boise Spine Institute but each visit I became more and more skeptical and red flags flying up all over. Starting from scheduling to their MRI department. They told me to get a steroid injection. The first time failed because the doctor didn't communicate with me well. After the second time I had severe pain afterwards. Headaches became severe. Muscle spasms, etc... I begged them to help me cope with a stronger med or dose. They refused, and refused to listen to me. I canceled the surgery appt for my neck today. I don't trust them. I have 2 young children a husband a life to continue. I can't do this from bed. I can't imagine what it would be like after surgery. NO THANK YOU
Doctor was very vague and could not help me with my back. I understand Doctors sometimes do not always have the answers . I suffer from horrible low back pain, tried many different remedies such as chiro, physical therapy, steroid injections, nothing was helping. I was very clear I wanted nothing to do with narcotics but still made me feel as though I was making up the pain and would not hear of any ideas I had regarding research I did on my own out of desperation. Going for a second opinion!
Terrible bedside manner, did not answer my questions about surgery, spent minimal time with me at office visits. Had a spinal fusion done and had to go back 2 months later to get it repaired. Am in terrible pain and can barely function. Would not recommend and am currently looking for a Dr. that might be able to fix me.
