Ratings for Dr. Walter J. Song
In April of 2017 I fell and broke my humerus bone (and I can tell you it was not very… humorous that is) . Fortunately for me, Dr. Song is the specialist my insurance sent me to see. He scheduled surgery right away and did a fantastic job putting me back together. He put a stainless steel plate in my arm and I am completely healed and back to all of the activities I love. This was my second experience with Dr. Song. I fell a few years ago and broke my left wrist and he set the bone and got me back to normal in no time. In addition, many friends and acquaintances have also been treated by Dr. Song and every one of them rave about the great job he does. He really knows his stuff and his work is excellent. His staff is also very good. They have always been friendly, knowledgeable, and kind. If you have the unfortunate situation that requires a hand/arm specialist I can’t say enough good things about Dr. Song and his staff.
Have extremely painful osteoarithic joint. The xray they took at the office confirmed it. Dr Song looked at the joint and said he recommended surgery, but perform it unless I took Cortisone shots first. A technician completely lacking compassion or empathy of any sort proceeded to inject my joint. When I stated I couldn't take the immense pain, she then disdainfully withdrew the needle and stated "You're done here." She left the room in a state of total disgust and treated me as though I was some sort of a baby or acting infantile. I asked the doctor if they had a pain medication. I was told "We don't give pain medication. Go home and take Advil, the pain should stop in a day or two." I went immediately to the local ER where they assessed my joint and the treatment I received and immediately gave me a shot of morphine and follow up meds. Four days later, with meds, I'm still in severe pain. I now understand the need for a service like "PRESS GANEY".
