I chose my NS based on his reputation and skills. Unfortunately, his office is a disaster and he's always in surgery and unavailable. I spoke with his nurse on Tuesday about pain that has not resolved from the surgery. She said that she would speak with him on Wednesday. I called yesterday and she said that he was operating all day and she only spoke with him briefly. She promised that she would speak with him again on Thursday. I called this morning and she is not in the office and the secretary said that I will have to call back on Monday, unless it's an emergency! Is this typical? He is one of the best NS for spine fusions in the area and I understand that he busy, but getting a question answered shouldn't take a week?!? Do I stick with him because he's the best or should I ditch him and find another doctor? :?
