Ratings for Dr. Bernard A. Pfeifer
AFter 3 months of PT I was sent to Dr. Pheifer to investigate hip and lower back pain. Asked me if I hurt enough for surgery or a cortisone shot. Took one xray and did a quick exam. Told me it was bursitis and maybe tendonitis - as women age they get these things (!!). Offered pain killers (?) and said if I didn't feel better in 1 more month come back. Very jovial and pleasant, but didn't take my pain, or my PT's notes seriously. I went to one of his associates and 2nd doc said first xray was useless. He took a series of different xrays and say there was a problem immediately. Discovered I had an impingement of both hips that was destroying the two joints. NO bursitis nor tendonitis. It's great to be pleasant, but it's better to listen to your patient and get a real answer.
Dr. Bernard Pheifer is the BEST. I don't believe he still performs surgery. I thought I heard that he now teaches. He performed a partial disc removal on my back and literally saved the quality of my life. Three other surgeons and emergency rooms offered me any help. He operated and I was back to my self in a few weeks.
