Ratings for Dr. Richard Laherty
Dr Laherty explained in great detail the surgery I required. He was very knowledgeable in his profession. I wasn't rushed or pressured to get the surgery, more so telling me the pros and cons of what to expect post op. He is extremely knowledgeable on complex spine surgery and arguably is one of the top surgeons in Brisbane. I had no problems whatsoever with him.
Dr Leharty was running an hour and a half late. Without even an apology he bluntly told me that my pain was inconsistent with my MRI, (Basically called me a liar) the entire consultation was finished in about ten minutes. He didn’t even carry out a physical examination. I would not recommend this Doctor.
I cannot thank Dr. Laherty enough for my surgery on my herniated disc(L4/L5). On my initial consultation with him, he was very open and honest and was happy to answer all of my questions. (And I mean I had a double A4 sided page full of questions). He thoroughly went through everything in depth with me. He put me right at ease as I was extremely nervous about having open back surgery as it was the first surgery I have ever had. My surgery went amazingly well and I can't thank him enough for easing the awful pain I went through. He is extremely knowledgeable and a highly skilled neurosurgeon. I would highly recommend Dr. Laherty.
Without doubt the rudest professional we have ever had the displeasure of meeting. Really had no idea what the problem or cause of pain was and when questioned about possible procedures, medications, diagnosis, tests etc. became extremely agitated to the point where his hands started to shake, lost self control and became abusive. Based on our experience we would never return or recommend him.
I had an l5-s1 fusion using alif and plif. I have found Dr Laherty to be fantastic. The surgery has taken away my pain has returned me to a great quality of life. Dr laherty is very knowledgable and his surgical skills are excellent. His staff are kind and helpful. I would highly recommend him to anyone
