Ratings for Dr. Jeffrey D. Wade
Dr. Wade is awesome! I was told by a previous doctor that I needed MAJOR back surgery with all the rods, screws, etc. When I took my MRI pictures and x-rays to Dr. Wade, his diagnosis was that I didn't need all that. He said he would do it and it could help pay for one of his kids college educations, but it was NOT necessary. I could have kissed him! All that was needed was a laminectomy (a minimally invasive surgery) that TOTALLY solved my sciatica pain. He definitely knows what he's doing and I agree with others about his bedside manner. No, he doesn't sit and chat, but if you ask a question, he will answer it. I liked him so much that my husband had him do the same surgery just yesterday for sciatica and major numbness in his feet. So far, so good! No major issues with office staff!
My mother had surgery on he ankle. After having 2 screws and a bracket placed it took us 2 days to get her prescription corrected. The young lady that works at the front desk, BLAIR, is the rudest person I have ever encountered in life. Please look forward to being placed on hold and hung up on twice before she actually takes the time to be rude to you. Dr. Wade needs to clean house with his front desk staff. My mother said if she breaks her ankle again tomorrow she refuses to return to him. I wish I could give 0 stars. He is a joke as well. He spends no time with his patients.
Dr. Wade and his nurse , surgical team was awesome! The office staff, especially the main girl at the front desk is terribly. The girl who does scheduling could care less if and when you get any surger scheduled or any post op theraphy's done or not. They are very rude and inconsiderate!!! I don't think these rude people realize that if it weren't for these patients, they wouldn't gave a job!!! The next time I am face to face with this wonderful surgeon, I will tell him to check reviews and feed back on his office staff, they are causing him to lose patients including me!!! Not happy at all with them!!!
Dr wade is very nice. His staff is the rudest bunch of people I have ever met. I have had major problems since my surgery-still in pain. The lady that schedules procedures(? Angie?) doesn't return phone calls, when you finally complain enough to get her on the phone..she (just like all the other staff) is rude aND told me that all the pain I'm having "must be in my head". Really-?!?! I just called to schedule my 4 MO post op-I asked about a Friday appointment's and the receptionist's reply was "he doesn't do fridays". This goes to show you how a horrible, tacky staff can drag a doctors name through the mud.
I was in a severe car accident on March 19, 2008. Dr. Wade said, I was one of the worst case of neck injury he had ever seen. I had broken C3-C4 in my neck. I was told that I could be paralyze or at the worse case this injury could had resulted in death. I feel blessed to be working as a teacher still. I'm not saying I don't still experience pain in my neck and shoulder. What a blessing to be alive and watch my 3 boys grow. I feel Dr. Wade saved my life. I wouldn't recommend anyone but Dr. Wade to anybody for orthopedic procedures.
I was told he was the best spine surgeon. What a joke, he performed a discectomy on me in July of 2011 and it was not successful. He does not spend alot of time with you and it seems as though he just wants to perform as many surgeries as he can so that he can make his big salary. his receptionist is also very rude and disrespectful. Any of you with spine issues should see a board certified Neurosurgeon.
Dr.Wade is great, very smart and kind. His staff is great. He did my neck surgery 10 years ago and I have had to go back for a new problem and he was just as great as he was 10 years ago! I trust him with a big surgery . I would recommend him to anyone even my family. He is the best doctor .
Dr Wade was wonderful. His office staff was the worst I have ever encountered in my 44 years. 3 days post op found I was allergic to pain med. Office staff told me they could not do anything after repeated phone calls to them. Lost paper work that after two weeks was only partially filled out. Will not return because of the horrible service I have received from his nurse and I am certain that if she had communicated any of my concerns to him he would have promptly dealt with them. He is a great Dr
My issue took longer to heal than was advised and felt overall communication could have been better. That being said, I have had no further issues. Furthermore, I know of numerous people who had to have the surgery repeated who used other doctors. The final result is I am pleased
