I have been seeing Dr Ravi Dhawale. He is one of the best endo I have seen and very knowledgeable.The nurses there are worst and seems like they do not really care about any patients health.Recently I ran out of Insulin (I am type-1 diabetic and cannot get by with out insulin) and when I called pharmacy they said my prescriptions were expired.I tried to get prescription refill through calls and after no use I stopped by at the office and talked to the receptionist.The receptionist at front desk was really helpful and said the prescription should be ready be end of the day.After 1 day the pharmacy still not received the prescription and when I call the Nurse number, it just goes to VM or the call is kept holding all the time.I had to skip work again drive to office and receptionist listened to me patiently and asked what I need and worked with the Nurse.She was also able to get me samples to get by for time being and said since Dr was out of office the Nurse could not refill my prescription on time.Wow !!!! that was nice but I wish the nurse has the courtesy to just give me a call back and explain the situation.I am happy with the Dr and receptionist but I think the nurses need to improve and be more helpful to patients in emergency situations at least.My rating:Dr Ravi Dhwale 5 starsReceptionist 5 starsNurse 1 starI am rating it 2 starts because of multiple office trips for my prescription refills.

THE PROPER OFFICE NUMBER IS (614)762-7312 . I am very happy with the level of care I get at this clinic. I have spastic diplegia Cerebral Palsy, spinal stenosis, a bulging disc and arthritis,and have worked with other clinics in the past. At the other clinics, I would go in, sit for an hour or two (very painful with my aforementioned issues)and then be handed my prescriptions,AFTER I paid an office copay of fifty dollars regardless of the fact that I never even went back to an examined room, much less be seen by a doctor or nurse. Here, I am asked comprehensive questions about the effectiveness of my current treatment, my ability to attend to self care, and basic quality of life. The staff here seems to really understand that my goal isn't to procure medication, but to live as full and satisfying a life despite my diagnosis. In addition to medication, I am given prescriptions for PT, and other treatments,such as using heat and/or cold,are discussed. I am given a drug test every visit (all patients are) which comforts me in knowing we are all being monitored for proper med use. I am very comfortable here, and after fifteen years, I am walking better since become a patient in January 2015.

Came in to because I was just not feeling myself. I was dizzy, nauseous, and excessively exhausted. The wait time was minimal the nurse was very kind and asked if I would like some water or something to drink while I waited. I said yes and she returned with a bottle of water. The doctor came in soon after and was wonderful as well. He talked to me for about 10 mins and really seemed concerned. He ordered some test that were preformed in office wrote me a script for my nausea, refered me to a primary care doctor in network , stated for me to come back to him if I continued to have problems until I got into the primary care doctor and then sent me on my way. I recommend Polaris Urgant care if you don't have a primary care doctor. The staff here is wonderful kind and really concerned about your health and well being.

I had my eyelids and jawline done with Dr. Smith about a month ago. My brother had referred me to his office. He is a physician and his daughter was a patient of Dr. Smith’s. Dr. Smith was the only doctor I had a consult with because he was extremely professional, warm, and accommodating. His office is well-run and everything is perfect. So far, I am thrilled with my results. The process was exactly as he had predicted. Everyone was available to me if I had questions or concerns. I had very minimal pain and an uneventful recovery. I recovered quickly and even a little earlier than anticipated. I will recommend Dr. Smith to absolutely everybody. It is a marvelous office and if you’re interested in having any type of facial surgery, he does a fabulous job.

I went to Polaris urgent care with a U.T.I. I ended up paying over $300.00 for a prescription for free antibiotics. When I received a second bill from them, I was upset when they billed me $32.00 for a pregnancy test. I was never asked if there was any chance I was pregnant, which there was absolutely, positively NO way I could be pregnant, and I was never informed I'd be given & billed for a pregnancy test. I can pick up a pregnancy test at the dollar store for $1.00, and they're just as effective as the test I'm sure I was given. They refused to drop the charge. I feel $300 to address I UTI is pretty excessive, especially with unnecessary charges like that. Definitely left a bad taste in my mouth, and will deter me from returning.

I saw Dr. Smith for a rhinoplasty on December 23rd. Another doctor recommended Dr. Smith to my father. I decided to have the rhinoplasty because my nose was not completely straight. I was also having a lot of problems breathing; one of my nasal passages was 99% blocked. Dr. Smith is very educated and nice. You can tell he loves what he’s doing. I love my results so far. I can breath now. It’s also nice to have a beautiful, perfect nose. During the recovery, I was expecting more pain, but everything went smooth. I recommend Dr. Smith’s rhinoplasty to anyone with breathing problems.

Dr. Norman Schwartz is, by far, the BEST doctor I have ever come in contact with!!! My husband and I both see him. We both feel comfortable with him, he cares about his patients, but is also down-to, earth and easy to talk to!!! He is NOT one of those doctors that breezes in and out of the room in ten seconds, leaving you with unanswered questions/concerns. Over the past month, my husband has had a few issues with his diabetes and the levels of several vitamins. Dr. Schwartz took the time to text and call to check on him on 3 separate occasions!!! He is an excellent physician!!!

My wife was pregnant with our 3rd child and I lost my job. My doctor that I had been going to before Dr Milroy Samuel, told me that I had to pay $4000 cash or he wouldn't see us. We had only 3 weeks left in the pregnancy and we were desperate! I was unemployed and we were expected to pay $4000?!! We called 30 different obgyn's and only one would see us and that was Dr Samuel! His office has a patient assistance program that no other office has. Dr Milroy delivered our baby a week after we joined his practice! We would and do recommend him to our church family and friends.

Dr. Smith performed my rhinoplasty a few weeks ago. I found him by doing some online research and through Google. I needed to do this procedure quickly, since I only had like three weeks before I was coming back to Japan, as I’m in the navy.. Dr. Smith will show you a picture of how he wants to do your nose, so you know exactly what will be done in the surgery. I am really in love with what he did. I look the same, but the changes Dr. Smith did are just awesome. Nobody can tell the difference. I’m really happy wish the outcome of my rhinoplasty with Dr. Smith.

I have been there several times for Sinus Infections/Bronchitis. My husband has been there for Bronchitis, Ear Infections and Sinus Infections. Dr. Garcia ROCKS as does all of his hard working staff! I have referred family members to go there, and they have.........and have also been quite happy with the care that they have received! Thanks Dr. Garcia!
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.
