Ratings for Dr. Phillip De Muelenaere
I had a ADR replacement approx 8 years ago, L5-S1 disc was replaced with a prodisc-l. It gave me my life back, w/o doubt. I went from stuck on the couch to back road racing motorcycles, hiking through Europe and fixing snowmobiles again. I had a terrible crash and everything held togther nicely. If you want someone to hold your hand and sign to you, Dr., is not your guy. A bit of a brash person, which makes for crappy bedside manner, but I am more worried about the quality of the surgery then making a new friend. Thank you to Dr. D for giving me back a life worth living!
He should quit surgery. He made me have worse issues after my back surgery. He needs to quit drinking red bull. If he is that exhausted from his other activities he should retire and guithe wrecking people and then saying there is nothing more he could do for me. Awful bedside manner. Go to Winnipeg 0 rating
Dr. D. performed a L4/5 Spinal fusion in 2010 and in 2014 he also performed a Meniscus Repair on my right knee. I think he is straight forward and honest. He tells you as it is. I have some remaining issues with left leg defeiciency after my back surgery. Dr D. has always kept his door open for me. I have always been welcomed in his office. He tells me to come back whenever needed.Much appreciated Dr D.

Worst bedside manner I have ever witnessed. No help what so ever. This man doesn't say one darn extra word if his life depended on it. After my surgery and once I recuperated enough, this man didn't even suggest further help, such as PT etc. After my cast was removed he was just about to send me home and if I didn't ask if he thought Physio was a good idea, he would have said nothing and after months of physio the therapist thinks that further work has to be done but yet this doctor says nothing, not weather more visits are required or anything else. Only after I told him that I'm still in pain and that's why the PT arranged for this last meeting, plus the work that I do requires my full balance, did he finally recommend orthotics. For goodness sakes, you're the doctor, ask me questions, get a feel for I'm going through, recommend options, say something. I am seeking a second opinion, you need to revisit why you became a doctor to begin with.
I found him EXCELLENT in every way! He diagnosed my condition in October 2004. Suggested some treatments but stated if the pain isn't manageable surgery will have to be performed. I have tried all kinds of treatments in Winnipeg to avoid this surgery. However, that isn't going to be possible. I wish he was in Winnipeg but maybe he can give me a name to a collegue or I can get to Brandon for surgery on my Spine.
