Ratings for Dr. Michael A. Healy
He knows his stuff, but has TERRIBLE bedside manners. I have had 13 brain surgeries for hydrocephalus with him and I finally switched to a different doctor. The past few months I have had 4 surgeries. 3 with him and 1 with my new doctor. He recently placed the shunt too far into my ventricle, then had to go replace it but he replaced it with a broken one so he had to replace that one as well. I came back into the hopsital vomitting and he told me everything was fine but then he realized other shunt was disconnected but didn't want to do anything about it. He blew me off. So enough was enough, and I am now done with Dr. Healy.
Dr. Healy just performed neck surgery on my neck last Tuesday (April 28, 2015). I have to say I am very happy with the outcome of my surgery as I was only in pain for a few days. He is very punctual and easy to understand. My bowling coach had the exact same surgery as I did a couple years ago done by Dr. Healy and he is the one who recommended me to him. He told me that i'm very lucky to not have any spinal cord damage from the accident I was in.
Dr. Healy performed a Right Temporal Lebectomy on me, (for those who do not know what that is, it is brain surgery( The surgery was on March 31, 1998, it was to stop Parcial Complex Seizures and I am very happy to say 17 years latter NO SEIZURES!!! Epilepsy free I can drive, finish daily duties with ease thanks to Dr. Healy. I would recommend him any day all day. He is the BEST!
Dr. Healy has operated on my neck & spine 4 times in the last four years & I can honestly say I woiuld not ever consider going to anyone else. My GP recommended him to me as he had done surgery on my GP as well as his wife. Don't think you can get a better recommendation than that.
2 years ago when I had a shunt revison for the first time and had complications. He admitted he did wrong by keeping it in for so long and said he would NEVER do that again and would replace my shunt when it either went bad or if it lasted up to 5 years that he would bring me in to replace it at the 5 year mark and not leave it in any longer to where it could cause more problems
I had spinal surgery a few years back and dr healy was very knowledgeable and very nice to me. I would go to him again in a minute, and would have the sugery all over again if necessary. I would recommend him to anyone..his bedside manner may not be the best, but who cares... if he is a good doctor that is all i care about when it comes to my well being.
very rude failed back surgery when telling him of promblems he caused did nothing but try to avoid .he did wrong look hard there alot of people in ttown done wrong i would not let him work on my dog the bad is he has went to college with lawyers from to cleveland and he seems to think!!!!!!!!!!!!i say try living with pain like i do doc.thanks to you
It is my opinion that Dr. Michael Healy DOES NOT subscribe to the idea of gentle surgery. It's nearly 4 years after my neck surgery and I've had trouble swallowing ever since. I used to sing... Not anymore. This guy was nothing but a jerk to me when I inquired, time after time, as to when the hard swallowing would subside. I'm told I have scar tissue in my throat. Scar tissue in my throat? From spinal surgery? How hard does one have to jack the esophagus over to do spinal surgery? I was told the sensation would last a couple of weeks, then a couple of months, then maybe a year. The last time I saw him, he was smoking a cigarette outside his office with his receptionist. I walked by disgustedly. If I treated my customers the same way I felt I was treated by Dr. Michael Healy, I'd be out of business.
