Dr. Max B. Medary's Ratings
Seeing Dr. Medary was the worst medical experience I've ever had. He was arrogant and unprofessional. He announced that I was not a surgical candidate before he asked me a single question. I pointed out that he was looking a my MRI from the wrong year and he completely ignored me. I have a herniated disk between L5 & S1 and am unable to work. He stated there were no structural abnormalities on my office visit note and that the date of my injury was the date of my appointment. He had the written evaluation completed before he saw me, which was for about 3 minutes. Apparently has great surgical skills, but absolutely no bedside manner or empathy at all. He actually appeared to be stoned. Don't waste your time unless you know you need surgery as he has nothing to offer you if you don't.
I went to see Dr Medary for a second opinion on my back pain. He was very nice and knowledgeable. He quickly diagnosed what was wrong with my back (what my orthopedic doctor had missed). He told me my options with him and welcomed me to look at other alternatives to surgery. I would definitely recommend Dr. Medary to anyone experiencing back pain.
Great doctor and I have to totally disagree with the other negative comments below. If your looking for a doctor whose going to tell you what YOU want to hear then NO this isn't the doctor for you... However if your looking for an experienced surgeon who is honest, straight to the point, great surgeon, and knowledgable this is, your surgeon. You as the patient need to take care of your OWN health first, this doctor can't treat your obesity etc... If your looking for a shrink then find one if your looking for a top rated surgeon then you found one in Dr. Medary!
Having read reviews about Dr Medary prior to surgery, I thought, there's always haters! I liked him,was happy to be worked in for a back surgery after suffering for 5 yrs. Surgery went well & pain resolved! I was grateful!
3 mos later with back pain returned,Dr Medary seemed to care less. He never did an exam, never asked about the type of pain, just didn't want to hear it. He opened the exam room door in the middle of our visit,as if to say, get out! His answer was to "stop the woe is me attitude". So great if you need surgery, if not, you get rudeness,arrogance and a pompous ass! The compassionate Dr award at check out needs to be given to someone deserving of it.
opened the door in the middle of my conversation, as if to say, get out! He also said I need to quit the " so is
me attitude". I can totally agree with the comments of others regarding his arrogance, and rudeness. If, you
need surgery he's great, if, he relieves your pain, he's a great Dr. If, you return with a problem he could careless
and shows NO compassion or concern.
I had problems with my back that lasted about a year, finally I decided to get a MRI done. MRI showed I had a herniated disc L5 S1. I was in so my much pain. Thank god for this doctor he did surgery on my back and i have no more pain. All I want to say is thank you Dr. Medery.
I went to Dr Medary yesterday. I was very disappointed with the way some of his staff is and the Dr. I have never been treated the way I wad treated yesterday. I of the staff members was very rude and the Dr was the biggest as****le I have ever met. He walked in, looked really at my mri, said yes you have chiari malformation and you do not need surgery, he didn't ask if I had any questions, I tried showing him a list I made of my symptoms and he didn't want to look at it. He was very cold and short. He also stated one of my symptoms was not related to my condition. Which when you Google my condition is one of the symptoms. I will never ever ever go back, and I will never recommend him to anyone. He's the worst Dr I have ever been to. He needs to take classes on how to treat his patients. He's a total Jerk and douche bag!
He treated me with disrespect and disregard , walked in , seemed annoyed and was arrogant , I was referred by my chiropractor after my neck and spine mri, have been in constant neck and shoulder pain for over 5 months, he looked at mri said did not need surgery , i asked if he could help me with any medication , stated"you came here to find out if needed surgery , you do not, i asked what should i do said go to pain management. cut and dry did not offer a referral , no suggestions, did not care i am in a lot of pain. I would not recommend this Dr, what ever happened to "HIPOCRATIC OATH'!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (ALSO HIS STAFF PROJECTS THE SAME AS DR )
After receiving the news that I had a brain tumor my neurologist in Daytona Beach referred me to Dr Medary where they worked in conjunction to treat me. Dr Medary removed my tumor and was no only caring and sympathetic to me but also my family during this difficult time. I go back once every few years for follow up MRI and visits and our experiences are always. I recommend and continue to recommend Dr Medary. I live in Palm Coast and travel to Orlando to see him.
Dr. Medary's communications are direct and to the point, exactly what a patient should expect from a medical professional. There's no doubt that I would not be walking today if he hadn't operated on me. Following the operation, he recommended a simple rehab program that proved to be extremely effective. His reputation in my neighborhood is excellent--he only operates when he thinks he can help, and performs the minimum procedure necessary. I'd recommend Dr. Max anytime!
Regardless of his awards and credentials, I could never in good conscience recommend Dr. Medary. He treated me with disrespect and disregard. After waiting over an hour to see him, he walked into the room with an air of arrogance and annoyance. It was clear he felt I was wasting his time and he spent less than 5 minutes with me. I walked into his office suffering from 14 months of chronic pain. He completely brushed off a diagnosis given to me by 3 highly reputable specialist, and he did this without examining me or without reviewing my radiology reports. I walked out of his office still in pain, but very offended and terribly disappointed.
