I went there about my paralyzed diaphragm, but the PA knew nothing about it even though they had my records. I left with an order for carpal tunnel testing, rather than any help with my diaphragm which affecting my breathing immensely.

He very much seemed to be ina hurry. i felt he was borderline argumentative. this will be my 8th spine sugery and tried to explain new symptoms and he just kept telling me it wasnt related to my back and kept trying to leave. i had a very bad experience with my last back surgery in boise and wanted to make sure this experience would be better.

very encouraging PA. gave great analogy for follow up care. PA didn't like PT at this point. I don't agree. I believe minimal PT will avoid nerve scaring

The quantity of patients going through this office make for long wait times to even get an appointment. It is very difficult on the patient when a procedure needs done to have to wait for 9 months. [...]

Scheduling and arranging appointments was time consuming and borderline difficult. The consult with the surgeon was good as excepted however, the provider canceled my scheduled surgery without my full consent and without a complete understanding of circumstances that where present at the time. Zero interventions were given or recommended as a result of my injury. Additionally, a follow up plan was not established or event mentioned. I was also told that I would receive a phone call after the PA consulted with the specialist, I never received that call. Multiple phone calls were made in an attempt to reach the PA or nurse to get some guidance and questions answered. I did finely recieve a phone call from the RN after the front desk receptionist was negligent to answer any of my questions. With that, the RN provided very little constructive information and was very vague on why my surgery was cancelled as well as what I should expect next. In fact, I was simply told to only call if my symptoms came back. In Conclusion, I felt abandoned with no solution and or direction.
