I have recently seen Dr Doger for facet joint denervation procedure which has certainly helped the pain I was experiencing in my lower back. He is a kind and knowledgeable consultant, who I trusted with a painful procedure that was ultimately helpful.
Thank you, I would not hesitate to recommend him.
As a retired dental surgeon I have suffered low back pain for many years. I consulted Dr Doger for a second opinion prior to proposed surgery to my spine. I am happy to say that following treatment I am certainly much better and although the pain has not disappeared I know the aetiology now and can rest assured that there is nothing other than normal wear in my facet joints. A consultation with Dr Doger is how all medical consultations should be; he listens to your history and questions it, he carries out an examination, he is then informative of the differential diagnosis and puts the options available clearly. He then issues you with guidance to take home which is helpful. I hesitate to write reviews on professional colleagues however I suggest time and money is well spent consulting Dr Doger.
Having waited for several weeks for an appointment requested by our GP at an NHS pain clinic, we decided to consult Dr Doger privately as my wife was experiencing increasing pain following 2 strokes. We were impressed by Dr Doger who immediately understood my wife’s problems. He prescribed cream, pills and patches which have been effective in reducing my wife's discomfort. We wish we had had the opportunity to consult Dr Doger much earlier.
I received excellent treatment from Dr Doger. He explained the procedure I had to undergo very well and in a professional manner and he took time to answer all my questions completely without rushing me.
Very impressed with the treatment from Dr Doger. Professional from the start to the finish. After 11 months of pain I feel like a new man.
I saw Dr Doger following chronic pain which had been dismissed by many doctors in the past. Dr Doger listened to me and investigated many avenues prior to suggesting the best option. When I came for my procedure (exact procedure withheld for patient confidentiality reasons) I was extremely nervous. All the staff here were great and made me feel very comfortable. Dr Doger did a great job and to say I’m pleased would be a huge understatement. Thank you to everyone at Spire.
My sessions with Dr Doger were clear and unambiguous, setting out my options and post-treatment next steps. My treatment has helped me massively and improved my daily activities.
I am at the moment receiving treatment for pain in my knee. I suffer badly from anxiety and from my first meeting with Dr Doger, he has put me at ease.
His understanding and consideration towards my anxiety is much appreciated. I would recommend Dr Doger to anyone.
Following a recommendation from my rheumatology consultant, Dr Doger examined my lower back and immediately suggested treatment. This 2as arranged and carried out with brilliant efficiency. Following my treatment, I am now able to carry out normal day to day activities with ease. My experience with Spire Parkway and Dr Doger has been very pleasant. Thank you to all concerned.
Dr Doger has been very pleasant, very reassuring in his professional service in all my meetings. I feel I have been given the best of treatment and I would like to thank for Dr Doger for his attention to detail. 100% in every aspect. On a separate note- big thanks to all the staff on reception as they looked after me upon my visit.
My experience with Dr Doger has been excellent
- clear diagnosis
- effective treatment
- good follow-up and care afterwards
- caring considered advice
- all in all, would recommend for advice and treatment.
I have found treatment and service first class. I have been listened to and felt comfortable at every stage. I have never needed treatment before and can say I was worried for nothing.
Came to see Dr Doger at Little Aston Hospital and the experience I have had has been great. I have no pain since having the pain relief injections. He is an excellent consultant who explained everything in detail. I would recommend Dr Doger for pain relief management.
I consulted Dr Doger in January 2019 for constant hip and back pain to the point where I was limping. Dr Doger listened carefully and suggested a procedure which was carried out within a week.The pain was almost immediately relieved, lifting the constant aching and reducing the need for painkillers. Thank you so much for your belief and support.
I attended Dr Doger’s clinic at Little Aston Hospital as I had a bulging disc and a trapped sciatic nerve. He suggested injections which has helped with pain relief. I have reduced my 3 different types of medications significantly from 17 tablets a day to just 1 tablet now. Dr Doger was incredibly caring and understanding, explaining everything along the way. He moved things along very quickly (as my pain had been quite severe for almost 4 months prior to seeing him) and recognised the pain I was in. I can recommend him as an excellent consultant.
My experience of the treatment provided by Dr Doger has been excellent. He is a very considerate and caring consultant who clearly explained my treatment, provided options along with detailed literature for me to take away. This enabled me to understand how the treatment would work and what to expect. Dr Doger is a very respectful and understanding consultant and I cannot thank him enough the pain relief that I have had following the injections.
Further two my visits to BUPA clinics in Solihull, I can confirm the consultant along with the treatment and general care have exceeded my expectations. I will certainly be recommending the above experience to friends and family. Following my treatment (injections) there has been an improvement with my lower back pain which along with physio will assist my overall recovery. To conclude a very happy patient.
When I first met Dr Doger, I was in a lot of pain. Dr Doger was very helpful and listened to my needs. After the procedures were completed I have now had at least 75% reduction in the pain. Dr Doger is a very helpful, skilled and understanding doctor. I cannot thank him enough.
This is my first visit since I had my treatment and I have lost all my pain. The treatment was first class and I received excellent care. I would like to say a big thank you to all concerned.
I have been very happy with the treatment and care I received under Dr Doger. Everything was clearly explained and I fully understood the pro’s and con’s of the treatment. The nurses are a credit, they were very reassuring & professional throughout my care. I would recommend Dr Doger to family and friends. I have waited for a while for a diagnosis with the NHS, and by using my BUPA policy I can now start to get on with my life. The hospital itself was very welcoming, the carparking being the only negative. Thank you.
Visited Dr Doger following problems with my back which had been caused by problems with my hips. He is treating my hip pain. Dr Doger identified the cause and treated it rather than the symptom for long term resolution without any detrimental options. Dr Doger has excellent bedside manner, is prompt in seeing patients and I have every confidence in his approach. Would whole heartedly recommend him.
A positive experience. Private consultation for severe back pain resulted in facet joint injections. Pain relief was immediate- first time in several years without back pain. From initial consultation to follow up appointment, I have been looked after and listened to with regards to my pain. Would highly recommend Dr Doger’s services.
I was referred to Dr A Doger by Dr XXXX following three months of physio and the results of an MRI scan.. Dr Doger arranged to see me very promptly and explained exactly the steps necessary to help my condition. Both the treatments carried out caused me no pain at all.The improvement in my symptoms has been noticeable if not totally eradicated. This was explained by Dr Doger to be expected. My case has been left open so that I can return as soon as or if needed in the future. I am very happy with the treatment received so far.
Found the service here very good. Staff were helpful and friendly. Dr Doger was lovely and helped with my back pain. Had good results after just one treatment and it is very reassuring to know if pain returns I can just pick up the phone and know it will be sorted.
I am very pleased with the treatment I have received from Dr Doger in every way.
Having been in extreme pain and discomfort for over 4 weeks with back problems, I had a referral through BUPA to see Dr Doger who recommended either medication or steroid injections into the nerve root. I opted for injections which greatly improved my mobility and pain relief unto 85% from when I first saw him. I would definitely recommend and have this treatment again. Really pleased with the end result which is now being followed on with physiotherapy sessions to strengthen my core stability.
My experience of Dr Doger’s clinic has been wholly positive. He injected my spine and explained the need for daily painkillers, and a few weeks later I was able to walk the length of the Imbros Gorge in Crete, five miles of rocky going. I was thrilled to be able to do it. Dr Doger has also injected my chest to prevent a recurrence of costochondritis, which had made my life difficult over the past few years. I am confident that I can come back for further excellent treatment if my pain should come back. He has a very kind manner.
I had an injection and consultation relating to hip pain. Dr Doger and his staff were helpful and explained all the procedures and more importantly the expectations of the procedure. I am very pleased with their professional and caring attitude.
Following an initial consultation with Dr Doger, I was given an appointment to have an epidural injection for my back. It was a day case on 7th XXXX. Throughout the entire process both Dr Doger and all the staff at Spire Hospital, Solihull have been great. My back has improved enormously and my post injection consultation has given me the green light to carry on doing the exercises with the support of being able to contact Dr Doger at anytime if I have any problems. This has gioven me the confidence to play sport and when I see him in 6 months I hope things would continue to improve. I would certainly recommend Spire Healthcare.
My experience of my consultations/procedures has been very positive. He is clear in his explanations/expectations for each procedure. He is friendly and approachable.
All my appointments have all been very helpful and helped with my pain relief. Dr Doger has been explanatory in all the appointments and recommended different pain relief. He has always been courteous, polite and compassionate.
From start to finish was kept fully informed of what will happen. Final outcome of the procedure excellent!!!! Thank you!!! Now free from pain.
I was referred to Dr Doger due to pain I had been suffering in my lower back. I had received various treatments with other consultants before but nothing had worked. Thanks to Dr Doger , I am now pain free and feeling postive about the future again.
Dr Doger and his team have been efficient, understanding and most importantly friendly. Dr Doger listened well and made sure he fully understood my issues before diagnosing and deciding on treatments. I have definitely benefited from the treatments provided.
I was referred to Dr Doger for coccydynia and arthropathy. Dr Doger was very courteous and professional with my care. The treatment plan and care I have received has been exceptional.
I have just finished a course of treatment with Dr Doger at Spire Parkway Hospital. Dr Doger arranged for me to have denervation injections having had a history of lower back pain. The treatment was carried out with the minimum of fuss, ample pain relief. I am now able to carry on with my daily work routine with a lot less pain.
What a fantastic experience I have had with Dr Doger and the team at Spire Little Aston Hospital.
I was in a lot of pain which was impacting on my ability to work full time. The team got me in to see Dr Doger promptly and I had my epidural the same week, absolutely amazing!!
While an inpatient everything was explained to me fully every-step of the way
which really put me at ease.
Results following the epidural are brilliant. I was back working full time within a couple of days and haven’t looked back since.
A great big thank you to Dr Doger and his team, my life is now back on track.
I found Dr Doger very good. He was welcoming and explained in full detail what was wrong with my back, what procedures he could offer me and the outcome of the procedures.
He answered all my questions very clearly.
After being in a car accident 18 months ago I was left in severe pain. I was referred to Dr Doger at Spire Parkway. After my evaluation I was put forward for spinal injections. To me this was my last ray of hope to get relief from constant pain.
I’m pleased to say with my first procedure it was reduced by 60%.
I can not state enough how excellent my treatment at the spine has been from a lovely caring doctor to all the staff. I would recommend this clinic & hospital to anybody who is looking for the greatest of care and treatment.
I could barely walk with chronic lower back pain when I first went to see Dr Doger, the pain injection he treated me within 2 weeks had me back on my feet immediately!
Very helpful and such neat and efficient service from a true gentleman and very professional clinic. Would highly recommend!
I first saw Dr Doger at the beginning of May this year. At that time, I was in severe pain in my back and legs having to use the wheelchair. I found Dr Doger to be kind & professional. He advised that I should have diagnostic facet joint injections which he carried out in Spire Parkway.
Since then, I have improved to the extent that I do not even need a walking stick now. Thank you Dr Doger for releasing me from my pain!!
I self-referred myself to Dr Doger’s clinic due to my chronic lower back pain. I am very pleased with the relief gained by steroid injections and can confidently recommend him as a pain relief consultant. An excellent clinician.
I was very happy with the consultation I had with Doctor Doger. He explained the whole procedure to me very clearly and very professionally.
I would like. To say that the care that I from Dr Doger was very good and has helped to relieve my leg pain.I wish to remain anonymous.
I recently underwent Medial Branch Blocks procedure at The Spire Little Aston under Dr Doger’s and his team’s care.
The goal was to reduce pain and inflammation in my lower back to create a window to enable me, through a conservative approach in the first instance, to correct my condition and live a full, active and pain free life!
The procedure was a success and Dr Doger was extremely polite, knowledgeable, understanding of my expectations and importantly for me; clear regarding my short and long term treatment plan.
I know I'm at the beginning of my journey but I'm confident with Dr Doger’s help I will get where I want to be.
I found Dr Doger to be highly knowledgeable, professional and sensitive to my concerns as a patient. He explained every aspect of my treatment thoroughly, answering any questions I had and put me at ease on the day. Would highly recommend him.
I have been Dr Doger’s patient at Spire Little Aston Hospital for the past few months. I have found Dr Doger very helpful and understanding. I am now getting about 80% back pain relief following his treatment and medication which I never thought was possible. I have had multiple spinal surgeries in the past which gave me no benefit. I am very grateful to Dr Doger and his team.
I was given clear and thorough information, communication was excellent. I was very pleased to also receive a vision for my treatment in the long term from Dr Doger, alongside my short term treatment. My treatment was skilfully done, and I'm very pleased with the outcome! Thank you!
Dr Doger and his team have looked after me so well. From my initial enquiry,a procedure and follow up appointment everything has run so smoothly. I highly recommend Dr Doger and his team. I have been looked after really well.
I was very happy with the consultation I had with Doctor Doger. He explained the whole procedure to me very clearly and very professionally. Thank you.
I would like to thank Dr Doger for his help and advice in reducing the pain experienced in both my feet. I am trying to avoid a fusion surgery of the top bones in both feet for as long as possible. Dr Doger has prescribed a pill and injected both feet with a steroid which is helping me manage the pain.
I was very happy with the care I received. Although I was a bit nervous, I was made to feel at ease.
I have been having treatment for my back and hip, consisting of injections, the treatment was carried out by Dr. Doger, and i could not be more pleased. I still have some pain in my hip but this is expected as i am waiting for a new hip, but i could not have been better treated for.
Thank you Dr. Doger
Dear Dr Doger
I would like to take a moment to comment on the last 6 months whilst under your care for pain control.
I was referred to you following uncontrollable pain due to multiple fractures in my back associated with the cancer. At that time my pain control was very poor and consisted of liquid morphine which resulted in several associated issues.
Your diagnosis and management resulted in significant reduction in the pain and associated anxiety.
I am currently in a state of reduction of all medications as the pain is either zero or mild aches following 8 months combined treatment with myeloma.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support and help whilst I was at my lowest point.
I attended Dr Doger's pain management clinic recently.I found Dr Doger very professional and very understanding, he was very approachable and answered all of my questions and was willing to help me when no one else would, he could also see how much pain I was in at the time of my appointment and went out of his way to arrange further care and get me an appointment straight away. Dr Doger also made sure I was given stronger pain relief to make me as comfortable as possible. The experience of this clinic was excellent, if it wasn't for Dr Doger I would be still in extreme pain and have not have had my back surgery and been pain free at this time.
After receiving my second procedure in recent months I am more than pleased with the results. Dr Doger and his team have been very supportive from the first time we met, very detailed in his explanations and crystal clear with procedure risks puts your mind at rest. I will definitely use his services again if I need to. 10 out of 10. Thank you team Doger.
I recently underwent chronic back pain procedure with Dr Doger and his team and cannot speak highly enough about the professionalism, efficiency and exceptional people skills that I experienced from start to finish. Dr. Doger was polite, understanding and clear through discussions. I felt safe in his hands and with good cause as the results have been exceptional for me and I can live my life to its fullest again. I cannot thank Dr. Doger and his team enough.
I cannot compliment Dr Doger and the nursing team at Spire Parkway enough. Before, during and after my procedure I was made to feel at ease. and informed every step of the way....and I can now finally put my socks on without any pain!!
Thanks and regards
I was very impressed with Dr Doger, how he handled my mothers case, within the first appointment he knew exactly what the problem was, and my mother is feeling better with the treatment he has given her.
I visited Dr Doger's Clinic to have advice on relieving severe pain arising from my spine. He identified the source of my pain and following a MRI lumbar/sacral scan will perform a nerve block. In addition to this, he reviewed my analgesic medication and made appropriate recommendations to my GP (which he has acted upon) and have been effective.
I would like to thank you for attending to me in your clinic, I am pleased with the outcome of the pain relief that you gave me concerning my right groin.
I was very pleased with the pain reduction in my lower back after you carried out the nerve deadening procedure 14 months ago. This was after careful investigation using an MRI scan.
Dr Doger has been my pain management consultant for over a year. He is trustworthy, diligent and committed to finding the best solution. He clearly explained my diagnosis and explored all the possibilities and I can't recommend him highly enough.
I would just like to say how grateful I am to Dr Doger. He has been wonderful from beginning to end. He is a polite, kind and sympathetic doctor who understand the complexity of pain. The procedure he performed on me was successful and I can now say for the first time in two years I am pain free.
He is very knowledgeable in his field and explained me to what was going on every step of the way, with clear concise language, that I could understand. He demonstrated exactly where my issues were (with the aid of pictures and and skeleton!) taking the time to make sure I understood what was causing the pain, and going through the best treatment plan.
On the day of my procedure he explain what was going to happen and what to expect post op. During the procedure he spoke to me through out and explained every step as he was doing it. The rest of the theatre team was also wonderful. They all introduced themselves to me and explained their roles. It all was very reassuring.
He also visited me after my procedure and explained in more detail what to expect, with other details regarding recovery.
Overall all Dr Doger is the most poilte, friendly, approachable, understandable and professional doctor I have encountered. I would recommend him to anyone in my position. When my problem reoccurs I have no hesitation in wanting Dr Doger as my consultant again.
