Ratings for Dr. Frank J. Coufal
WORST NEUROSURGEON EVER AND HIS OFFICE IS TERRIBLE! THEY KEEP YOU ON HOLD AND ARE RUDE ESP ON THE PHONE! HE TRIES TO SMOOTH TALK YOU BUT BEWARE HE IS ONLY IN IT FOR THE MONEY! HIS REPUTATION IS FAKE!!! BEWARE HIS OFFICE WILL ABANDON YOU IMMEDIATELY AFTER SURGERY! AND HIS NURSES ARE NOT HELPFUL THEY DO NOT KNOW HOW TO HELP HIS PATIENTS! THEY SAY THEY WILL CALL BACK BUT THEN YOU DONT HEAR FROM THEM!!! BEWARE I AM WORSE OFF!
Dr. Coufal performed two brain surgeries on my dad to remove a benign tumor in his pituitary--first a transphenoidal then the same week a crainiotomy. He wasn't able to remove the tumor in either surgery and when my father woke up from the second surgery he had lost 80% of his sight--a side effect that Dr. Coufal never even mentioned as a possibility. His follow up and office was terrible. He's now seeing a world-class surgeon in UCLA who has questioned every decision Coufal made. Do your research, get a second opinion, ask questions and when it comes to brain surgery-find an experienced doctor.
Where to start, he is kind of rude but his staff is even ruder. He doesnt want you to even consider any other treatments besides his. If you have any question which cant, or doesnt want to answer he just tells you he needs more info. Once he gets the info he just forgets, or acts like he has forgotten all about his promise to update you. He doesnt believe in the patients bill of rights. If you want another type of treatment he wont help you. He lies about risk and dangers in his procedures. He may not be doing things illegally but he is unethical and I would never trust him.
