Ratings for Dr. Douglas Legay
Excellent Surgeon. Very busy and so you'll have to wait. Fixed my shoulder so that I can lift weights just 4 months after surgery. No complications. Not the most personable at first, but hey, he fixed me and that's all I care about. I highly recommend for any shoulder issue.
Strolled into his office an hour 15 minutes late.Proceeds to ask me why I "think" I have problems with my hips-my xrays were on the screen and the report from referring doctor on his desk. Answer his questions-he then shrugs his shoulders and says "probably just a touch of bursitis". After exam, he decides it's not my hips, but my back,and sends me for xrays.His helpful advice?-stay thin.Go for xrays, call for appointment to go over results-rudely told by receptionist "Dr.Legay doesn't deal with backs". I then ask if he is referring me to someone who does, and am then told to go see my family doctor, where I'm told-"oh, it's just a little arthritis. Long story short-it's not "a touch of bursitis", it is two majorly messed up hips that at the very least will require arthroscopic surgery, if not replacements.
HAD ACL REPAIR, "FASTENER" FELL OUT AT PHYSIO. WAITED A MONTH TO FIND OUT WHAT WAS CAUSING MY KNEE TO BE LOCKED IN A BENT POSITION, BECAUSE HE WENT ON VACATION FOR 2 WEEKS NEXT DAY... GOING TO PHYSIO EVERY DAY TO HAVE IT MANIPULATED TO TRY AND FREE IT UP, THAT WAS FUN, 4 WEEKS LATER, THATS WHEN HE DID A SCOPE AND FOUND FASTENER LYING IN KNEE JOINT. QUOTE " I WISH I HAD OF DONE AN X-RAY FIRST, WOULD HAVE LOOKED COOL". HOW IS THE REPAIR? "WELL ITS STRETCHED A LITTLE, JUST LIVE WITH IT, SHOULD BE FINE. 2 YEARS LATER DR STANISH REPAIRED MY ACL "PROPERLY" 20 YEARS ALMOST TO THE DAY HAD TO HAVE TOTAL KNEE REPLACEMENT DUE TO DAMGE CAUSED FROM FASTENER FALLING INTO JOINT. THANKS FOR 17 YEARS OF AGONY! USE LOCTITE NEXT TIME...
Dr. LeGay performed shoulder surgery on me this past summer. He is an excellent surgeon who explains things in detail. Yes you have to wait to see him in clinic for follow-up but he give excellent care. Janice his secretary is also top notch and always answers my calls and is a friendly face to see when I come back for appointments.
Dr. Legay, excellent, truly excellent. All my life I been very physically active with a high pain threshold resulting in various injuries and my seeing a number of orthopedic and other specialty doctors so I know where of I speak. I was 63 when the Dr. Legay preformed shoulder surgery to correct a torn rotator cuff (1 torn 2 damaged tendons) shoulder impingement and bicep tendon damage caused by years of overwork and ignoring pain that should have had me seeking help earlier. He initially told me that one of my bicep tendons would have to be removed as it appeared to have suffered a number of different traumas over the years. I think he sensed agnst about the bicep but apparently other muscles would compensate. I was in surgery longer than expected. Post surgery Legay told me things had gone well and that he had been able to repair the bicep ligament. He modestly deflected comment but I think surgery took longer because he wanted to save my bicep. I was pain free almost overnight, healed exactly in the time and manner he had explained and my shoulder is fully functional, stronger and better than it has been in years. He is a sober, reliable and considerate person.
Dr. Legay repaired my shoulder for impingement syndrome. It's now better than it's been in years. He's a great surgeon with excellent bedside manner. His appointments can run late, but he manages to fit you in if you need to see him and he takes the time to make sure your issues are addressed.
