Cabarrus Family Medicine-Concord
Top Doctors and staff. I have been seeing Dr Carla Jones since 2001 and have been pleased with how she is patient and through. Sometimes I have to wait but the quality of care I get is worth it. Top notch Doctor. I would like to also praise Dr Kara Gallagher I had to go to the ER last month 4/2013 and she was the Dr on call for cabarrus family medicine at northeast cmc. She was very informative and really listened to my concerns. She checked up on me the next day in the hospital and took the time to explain everything to me and did it in a way that I understood it and put me at ease. I highly recommend either one of these Doctors if you are looking for quality medical care from someone who shows they have a passion for what they do.

Concord Pain and Wellness
I've had lower back pain since my first back injury in 2003.. since then I've been to a couple different pain specialist both local and out of state and none of the care providers compare to Concord Pain and Wellness.. The doctor doesnt just come in and write scripts, she actually takes the time to sit and talk to patient about their situations. She is very nice and seems very knowledgeable about her practice. The staff are always nice and very helpful. There is never a full house therefore I am always in and out in a timely manner. If you are in pain anf in need of a great specialist, I highly recommend you give Concord Pain and Wellness a call.

Dr. Tara L Chronister, MD
Dr. Chronister was on top of some potential problems that no other physician had picked up on. Her attention to detail may very well have saved me from another heart attack. She was very knowledgeable, very pleasant, and, no doubt, very thorough. I highly recommend her!!

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.
