Lisa has always returned my calls and very helpful when I call her. She always gets back to me very quickly. I appreciate her patient care.
Very attentive and also seems concerned to get solution to problem. Got me right in to get checked out. I appreciate that.
I cannot say enough about staff and Dr. Kastrup. If I could give them 10 Stars I would. Doreen And Dr. Kastrup did excellent work. I recommend and will tell friends to really consider Dr. Kastrup Very Professional. Remember if you are positive minded. You can be up and Walking normally within 6 weeks.
Dr. Daniel Lee is a very skilled, kind and caring Surgeon. I went to see him after I had already had appointments with Surgeons at two other Spine clinics. The other appointments lasted approximately 5 minutes each and the doctors never looked at the MRI disk that I brought to them. One did not give me any hope that he could help me and the other doctor did not recommend surgery but stated that I should have a Spinal Stimulator implant. I informed him that I had that procedure done 6 months earlier and he then stumbled and said that their brand of stimulators are better than the other brand.
I went to see Dr. Lee and from the moment we walked in the door my experience had vastly changed. Every employee that I met made me feel that they were deeply concerned about me and the pain that I had been going through for the past year. We were taken to a room and my MRI and Cat Scan already displayed on the viewing screen. The PA (Kathleen) came in, sat down and explained everything and the reasons that I was having so much pain. She spent over half an hour answering all our questions and she stated that she felt that Dr Lee could help me. She encouraged us to ask questions when Dr. Lee comes in.
Dr. Lee came in and from that moment we knew we were in good hands. He was able to answer all our questions and he could see on the MRI where the pain was coming from and the reason that I would be having so much pain. He said that he feels he could help me and went into detail about what he would do. He also said that because of my age, small build and having had a prior fusion 17 years ago the procedure would be difficult for me. He also said that if I could live with the pain that I should. I told him that my life has been ruined because of pain. The pain medications do not work. I have not been able to walk more than a few feet and no matter what I did or didn’t do I would be in constant acute pain.
Dr Lee did the first part of the surgery on May 10, 2019. The second part was going to be completed a few days later but because I had been taking pain medications for many years (17) it was difficult to control it while I was in Rehab. Because I was in so much pain Dr Lee held off on the second part to see if they could get control of it. When he realized that I was having a difficult time he scheduled the second surgery on May 23, 2019. After the second surgery I chose to go home instead of rehab.
It is now 6 weeks out of surgery and I am feeling great compared to before. I went to a Wedding in California and we drove 5 hours in the car. The next day I sat for 5 hours in a hard chair at the reception and we drove back home the following day. I have been taking less pain medication and I have been doing much more. I have been taking walks for the first time in over a year. I am still having some pain but I continue in the recovery mode. I would highly recommend Desert Orthopedic and Dr. Lee to anyone who is considering spinal surgery.
I am so happy with my treatment at this doctor office. My surgery went Great. Dr. Allen is a great surgeon. My hip replacement went perfectly. Pain went from 10 to 0. Pain meds are not needed. Maybe a tylenol.
Patty was wonderful and answered all my questions and made me feel so comfortable.
She did a great job helping me with everything I needed. She was very prompt overall great visit.
Straight forward, to the point. Both are efficient. Thank you. Craig
Always very professional and caring. He explains everything in detail. You can tell Dr. Chan really cares about his patients. Very grateful for him.
I was very nervous & scared coming here for my appointment. I was hoping I wouldn't have to have surgery, but I figured I needed it since they were sending me here. I looked up my doctor online before coming here & he was just like the video. He made me feel comfortable and took the time to listen to my concerns. I agreed to have surgery so hopefully my arm will get better
