Ratings for Dr. Steven D. Eggleston
Instead of listening, Dr. E likes to weave intricate tales that explain his own biases. I came to him in terrible pain in my knee, but he did not order an MRI right away for a proper diagnosis. He kept insisting that I had an arthritis flare-up!?! He also refused to prescribe a temporary handicap parking permit, saying that it was somehow for my own good. He took an x-ray, but I did not recognize it as my own knee, and the disc contained only encrypted files. Dr. Eggleston sent me home to wait it out in pain. I had to go to the county imaging to have them take another x-ray that I could personally view. When we finally got the MRI, it went contrary to the initial arthritis diagnosis, but he didn't give up trying to weave in the word arthritis at every turn. The experience was terribly disturbing, and I am still in unmanaged pain.
My daughter dislocated her knee cap at age 8. She has always been very flexible. We went to this doctor and found out she has hypermobility syndrome. I had been asking her pediatrician for years why she bent the way she did and he always said she would grow out of it. Now I know she won't and there are certain surgeries she should NEVER have. He was so wonderful my husband went to him for a hip injury. He did my husbands total hip replacement and it went wonderfully! He and his staff have always been helpful and willing to answer my questions. We have had a wonderful experience and will use him again if we ever need anything!!
This man is an embarrassment to real doctors and surgeons. After doing an extremely poor surgery for what should have been a minor cyst removal, he did the surgery again, and again, and yet again ! My husband ended up in the hospital for a week, with horrible multiple infections, the "doctor" NEVER gloved up while examining the open wounds, and was very unconcerned about the welfare of the patient. Even though his patient was overweight, and over 50, he was never tested for any blood sugar problems, and was not concerned until the patient's blood sugar was 500+ !! Patient now has type II diabetes. This "doctor" told us he couldn't do anything more, there would ALWAYS be an open wound, and he sent us to the wound center at Brazosport Memorial Hosp. Thank God for small favors ! They took one look at the mess, and after months, helped fix what the incompetent doctor screwed up. What a frightening experience, and I hope no one else has to go through what we did. What a jerk.
