Has anyone else had experience with an extremely unresponsive surgeon post-op? I am about 3 months from my PLIF surgery, and have had various questions/concerns/issues throughout recovery. I have had two follow up appointments so far. Every time I call the office with a new symptom, question or concern, it is almost impossible to get a call back. I usually have to call three times before I get a call back, and then, it is the physician's assistant, not the surgeon. I had a recent MRI and am very concerned about some of the results in the report that was posted to my patient portal - but cannot get anyone to explain it to me. I got a verbal "looks good" message, but that was before the formal report was posted. The report has terms I don't understand, and appears to conflict with my last set of X-rays. This is mostly a vent, but I'm also curious if anyone else has run into this. If so, what has worked to get some response from the elusive dr? He is a well known and respected surgeon in my state, and a very nice guy, when I actually can see/talk to him. I am so frustrated I don't know what to do. Thank you!
