good doctor

April 15, 2019

my first visit I emphasized my concern for my hip pain as it was never an issue before and was concerning. Dr Gaffney seemed to doubt what I was saying about the pain in my hip. At one point he rolled his eyes and scoffed. He raised my legs in air and asked if pain ran down legs. I replied it did not, he then raised them even higher and I told him it did not.He then lowered my legs and he then stated that My epidural I had in Dec. must have worked. after a minute or so went by I experienced severe pain in lower back and down legs which I told him about. I asked him why? to which he said nothing. I received a shot in Hip and was told that should take care of it, if not come back in two weeks and he would look into some other things. 2nd appointment I notified Dr Gaffney it was still not better. He said i think its your back and there is nothing I can do. end of visit.

Dr. Gaffney seems on top of my case, is clear and concise in his comments and very helpful in responding to my concerns and questions. His surgical ability is evident in the relief I have experienced and my continuing to gain ground in recovery. I would readily recommend him.
