My second surgery at TOSH, and it was also amazing. The staff is very friendly and personable. The staff create a comfortable atmosphere that make you feel like you are in good hands. Everything was nice and clean. The surgery experience went very smooth and efficient. I was informed of everything that was going to happen, no surprises. Everything was set up very well. I would not choose any other place to get this done. I highly recommend them.
i do not recommend this place and get a second opinion if you do. i had a torn achilles tendon and the doctor wanted to do a more complex surgery. he claimed my injury looked to old for a regular less invasive one. he was going to remove a connecting toe tissue to put it on the A. tendon. he was going on a conference so i would have to wait. he was not a friendly doctor. luckily i found a doctor that successfully attached it in a simple surgery.
I had an appointment today with the Back and Neck Center for the first time. The nurse practitioner, Rachel Decker was absolutely the most arrogant, rude, loud person and needs help in the art of listening. I made it clear I wasn't there to get drugs (my GP can give them to me if I need them) but I wanted to get answers to why I am in so much pain, why it's worse sometimes, and to review my old MRI and see if I should be having another one. She cut the Physical Therapist off when he was talking to me while taking my blood pressure and marched us into the other room. I wasn't allowed to give a full explanation of my symptoms or struggles but was told I am suffering because that's what happens when we get older. (59 is not old) She assumed that my herniated disk had healed and didn't ask me if I wanted an MRI to confirm that but rather said it was a waste of time. When I said I just wanted to get my pain fixed (meaning find out why, the cause and what to do about it) she said they don't fix things there. When I asked one too many "why questions", I was told they don't answer "why questions." So...if you are looking answers this is not the place to go. Unless of course you want to be patronized, blatantly not listened to and pay good money that you work hard for just to be shoved out the door with a slip to go to physical therapy. How does she know if physical therapy is appropriate for me? She didn't bother doing any x-rays or offer an MRI. If she is a sample of the inadequate medical care why would I trust their physical therapists or surgeons to be any better?
My experience with Dr. Sawchuck at TOSH was disappointing, impersonal, and vague. I've had severe back pain to the point where I can't even sit myself up. I was desperate and really looking for an answer. But he took one look at my x-ray and pretty much said to avoid things that hurt it (i.e. Sitting, standing, walking, etc.... so basically live a sedentary life and I'll be fine?). He didn't act at all interested in actually helping me get better (or even giving me somewhat of a professional opinion), more like he's interested in checking patients off his list and getting paid. My husband met with him as well and had a very similar experience. Save yourself time and pain and go to a different doctor. Dr. Sawchuck will only leave you with less money and more questions.
I love dr. Johnson. He is very patient and pays attention to my needs and make sure that I get the best attention possible and Care better than most places I've been to. I have a lot of physical problems and unlike some other doctors who think it's in my head LOL he took the time to find out what was really going on and we were able to prove I had all these problems.
