Dr. Held did a discectomy for me in 2001, he took away horrible pain and left me pain free. I now need a fusion higher up in my back and he will do this surgery as well. Honorable doctor, makes sure you are comfortable with his plan. I recommend him to anyone with back/leg pain.

Dr. Held performed surgery & a slip-up that resulted in an extended hospital stay of several days. He did not follow-up after surgery &I had to demand he come to see me. He was dismissive and his staff was equally arrogant & dismissive.

General Comments

I am not the only patient who had problems with Dr. Held. I knew two other people who experienced the same issues as I did. I would not return to him under any circumstances.

His bed side manners are awful and he is not a very thorough doctor. I waited for more than an hour just to be seen for five mins. He started reading my chart out loud with the door open, I had to ask my husband to close the door. I am a Medical Assistant so I know how the medical field works and you are never supposed to read a patient's chart where other people can hear it. Never once was I asked questions on how I was with my back and the pain. He never looked at my spine other than with MRI if he would have he would notice there is a mole on my back on the location where I am having problems. He blamed me and said I never pin pointed a problem of which I did, maybe he needs to pay better attention to his patients. After five mins in the room with me on New Years eve he walked out threw my chart on the poor girl's desk at the front and said no follow up. I will be talking to my primary care doctor about this because he gave me the referral and told me he was a really good doctor. I have never been so disappointed with a doctor. I can save the gas money it took to drive over an hour a way plus my copay to go see my primary doctor he knows more about my situation anyways.

Doctor was very thorough in explaining the pros and cons of surgery. Have gone to him before and he did not operate he suggested physical therapy first. He is a surgeon that will operate only when it is the last option and is absolutely necessary.
