Marvin Willliams Underwent Minor Back Surgery

The Atlanta Hawks’ forward had a discetomy on his lower back to alleviate an isolated bulging disk, according to the team: “Dr. Hal Silcox of Peachtree Orthopedic Clinics performed the outpatient procedure. Williams walked out of the surgery center [Wednesday] afternoon and will begin rehabilitation immediately. He is expected to make a full recovery and return to full basketball activity in six-to-eight weeks.”

    I doubt you will have problems paying him but if you did ……..(see below)I

    would NOT recommend Dr. Silcox to ANYONE. He did spinal fusion on my
    wife. After insurance we owed him about $800.00. Because Dr. Silcox
    would not or could no keep my wife out of pain ( even though the
    recovery time for this surgery is 3-6 months, he refused narcotic pain
    medication after about 2 months ). My wife has experienced complications
    with this surgery where (so we were told, but never shown the x-rays
    after we were left in a room for over an hour with no one checking on
    us) the cage sunk into her vertebrae. Because he refused to manage her
    pain, she lost her job, and we could not keep the exact arrangement we
    had made. We did show good faith and sent a payment anyway. I ensured
    them I would get them paid. My wife has NEVER seen Dr. Silcox after the
    surgery. After he got the $30k for the surgery he dropped her like a hot
    rock, and my perception is that he is only in it for the money, and
    could care less about his patients if they fall short financially in any
    way. He refuses to even communicate if his patients have a hiccup in
    their life, and even if it is HIS fault.

    My wife lost her job
    because of the lack of pain management from this practice. He now
    refuses to see my wife at all ( of course until the balance is paid )
    even though he got paid for the surgery. Be careful, this doctor will
    NOT put the value of his patients over the value of a dollar so BEWARE.
