I am warning anyone reading this do not see Dr Jonathan Degnan at University Orthopedics. I was referred to him after a work injury and to say he was UNPROFESSIONAL is an understatement. Instead of providing good medical care, he is too busy flirting and acting like an over-the-hill playboy. Each visit I was groped and asked about personal issues he had no business asking. At that time, I did not say anything because as a single mom I did not want to lose my job. However, after getting a second opinion and finding out he gave em a false pre-existing condition, I know that I am not the only patient he has misdiagnosed and that he had his board certification taken away for messing up on surgeries. My friends that work in orthopedics have said many of cases have had to be redone. He is nothing more than an insurance puppet who makes money off of others misfortune. He is a JOKE to the docs and lawyers in Knoxville. I am filing a suit against him and also complaining to the medical board about his conduct and treatment. I pray no one else goes through what I did. And for those who don't believe me, call his office and ask about his board certification. How any incomptent surgeon as this can keep his license after several accidents involving alcohol is beyond me!!

Dumbass has it on his office sign - disgusting he still has a license after all the screwups he has done. I know - I was one of his victims but I was able to get a second opinion but many don't!

take it to an attorney then.

you're just making a whining azz out of yourself here.

this isn't the place to be bringing shyt like this.
because CH is right, we don't care about it.

and spare us the, "you'll be sorry" line of reasoning.

it's sue happy, pizz ant patients like you who help make the cost of healthcare unaffordable for those of us who aren't looking to sue just because you don't leave a doctors office able to perform athletic feats that your fat azz couldn't perform before you went in to see him.

if you had a sac to begin with, you'd have knocked the livin' shyt outta him if you thought you'd been unprofessionally groped.

holy shyt !!!
i heard that story this morning.

which actually made something else kind of make a bit of sense.....

.....makes you wonder if, many decades ago, a young hebrew couple in dandridge went down to the local gas station and traded their kid for a tank full of high octane.
thus forever scarring a young jewish lad.

makes ya' wonder what ever would become of a poor lil' orphan treated in such a fashion ???

Just the way a couple of things look to me.

1. He's been in practice a long time according to Healthgrades, and doesn't appear to have had any sanctions.

2. This person seems to be mad at him because he diagnosed her as having a "pre-existing" condition. So this probably means she was claiming Worker's Comp or Disability and when he did this it made her ineligible for the free ride.

3. "I'm gonna sue"!! Of course. If you don't get your money from disability, then clearly there's only one alternative.

4. I would bet that the visit he "groped" her, she did not make a scene and scream for help from the staff. That makes any kind of lawsuit pretty weak.

5. Taking a major issue like sexual abuse by a licensed professional anonymously to a discussion board is the height of chickenshit. You can name his name, but not your own. Coward.

6. People that come on here to smear a business / professional, always have a friend that "swears" they are right. Does the Doc have anyone that "swears" he is right? Yeah, probably.

7. My guess is that most people would not know how to even BEGIN a legitimate complaint to a "board". This is obvious because you would probably start at the state level for such a serious charge as sexual harassment. Certainly, you would call law enforcement for that.

8. Board certifications are great, but many do not bother. In these days of directed network participation, physicians just don't have to compete for business the way they used to.

This guy could either be the best or worst physician in Tennessee and you would never know from Topix!
