Worst experience of me and my sons life. My son had a musle scalp flap repair he was in recovery for 3 1/2 hrs.and would not let me see him. After assigning him a room it took another 1 1/2 hr. Before he received one Percocet. The doctor who was great prescribe two every two hrs.but he had a hard time getting one every 4hrs. He was in severe pain with fever and swelling so bad it closed and blacked one eye. After complaining they sent a social worker and assistant. That told me to shut up because she trying to talk to my son. My son wasn't feed from midnight to 10:30pm after asking several times and told food was coming I had to drive to get food for him. They forgot to get my son to sign consent for surgery then after 1 1/2 hr. Into surgery called me to come sign. My son and I left and wasn't asked to sign release. They just watched us walk out. Ps. After social worker told me she wasn't talking to me she had my son so upset,and laughed on her way out. We were disrespected like never before! - - no stars and will never be back to this hospital and will seek attorney. Oh by the way my son is a disabled war veteran,which they knew! OMG!!! I had to give 1 star to post my review when it should be minus 00000!

The care was very good and the therapists are friendly but I have a problem with their billing department. Make sure you know what and how much they are going to charge(for each little thing) and have it all in writing up front with the necessary insurance pre authorizations before they treat you. I also got some treatment payments denied due to them not even attempting pre authorization and they still wanted me to pay even though the "additional service" was also not even done. This made my bill balance higher than it would have been if they had simply charged me for exactly what was done. It was frustrating to say the least. I can recommend the therapists but not the billing side of the clinic.

I had an accident with an x-acto knife this morning. It required several stitches, and is extremely painful. The doctor, who never even bothered to see me, suggested I invest in some ibuprofen. Never before have I encountered such a lack of empathy from someone who took the Hippocratic oath. Frankly I'd have been better off with a veterinarian. If I could give the General less than one star, I would.

I give Baton Rouge Orthopaedic Clinic an "A" for in-clinic care and an "F" for correspondence and processing. Not only is there an additional charge for all essential paperwork for employers and disability insurance (the equivalent selling a pair of shoes and charging extra for the laces) , it is rarely completed in a timely manner. One claim form took two weeks and now I'm waiting for a return to work form that I gave them on my last visit on Monday the 18th. It is now Friday the 22nd and I'm scheduled to return to work Monday the 25th but will not be allowed to until BR Ortho completes that form and returns it to me. I am already certain to miss at least one day's pay due to their tardiness and will miss another day for each one that they delay. All phone calls except those to billing go directly to voicemail and messages are not returned in a timely manner.
Tips & Advices
Scoliosis is a disorder where the spine curves sideways. Most people develop the condition during the growth spurt before puberty. The cause of scoliosis is unknown and most cases are mild, but the rare severe instances can disable a person.
Orthopedic surgeons attend four years of medical school, then four to five years of orthopedic residency in a hospital. They must also be licensed and certified in orthopedic surgery by the state in which they practice.
The terms "orthopedic doctor" and "orthopedic surgeon" refer to the same profession. Related specialties include podiatrist, a doctor who works with the bones, tendons and ligaments in the feet, and a sports medicine physician, a doctor specially trained to treat athletes.
The cost of a visit to an orthopedic surgeon depends on the type of tests ordered and treatment given. For example, an MRI costs $500-$1,300. An initial consultation costs $100- $500, while anesthesia for a procedure generally ranges from $2,000-$4,000. Overall, an orthopedic surgery can cost anywhere from $15,000 to $30,000.
During a consultation or first appointment with an orthopedic surgeon, the practitioner will ask the patient a variety of questions to understand the situation. The surgeon might ask about the patient's pain levels, medical history, and any prior injuries. Then, the surgeon will administer a physical exam and possibly schedule tests to better understand the problem. Possible tests include a stress test, x-ray, or MRI.
