Highlands Rehabilitation Hospital
I'm surprised to read others' negative reviews. My family's experience at Highlands Regional Rehabilitation Hospital couldn't have been much more positive. My father entered Highlands requiring medical services other rehab facilities in the area aren't able to provide. The facilities were well-kept, the administration was well-organized, the staff was efficient and courteous. Highlands far exceeded our experiences with other rehab centers in the area, and I would recommend it highly to friends and family.

I had several spots on my body that I wanted to get checked. It took me a while to get and appointment but I'm so glad I waited. The staff was great and the Dr. is one of a kind., very funny, and explains every possible scenario. He removed three spots that ended up being cancerous. even after 2 Dr.s said not to worry, they looked fine. He left very little scarring and any questions I had, the office staff or Dr. answered completely.

Frank Agullo MD
Dr. Agullo is a great surgeon who's had so much patience for me and all my questions. He answered every one of my concerns and left me at ease after every visit because of his sincerity and friendliness. After my surgery he even called us back personally when we had a question about the severity of my pain. I will gladly recommend him to my family and friends. I am very appreciative of all that he and his staff have done for me.

Doctor Herman was very clear and concise with my condition. I was very nervous about my condition, but Dr. herman had the ability to calm me down and made me feel comfortable about the procedure to correct the problem. Dr. Herman came highly recommended by our company and lived up to his reputation. I look forward to continuing my visits with the Doctor and to recommend him to family and colleagues.

Dr. Mohammed R Alnajjar, MD
Dr. Alnaijar has to have the worst and longest wait for phone response that I have ever encountered. I am on the phone right know trying to verify my appointment. I have now waited 15 minutes and still holding. The first time I called to make an appointment, I had to call back three times,on the third attempt I finally demanded to speak to someone and pleaded not ot be placed on hold again.

My three daughters have been a patient of Dr. Lodhi's for over 11 years, her practice is A+ Superb, she is very friendly, and always positive, and is genuinely concerned about her patients, and takes the time to talk to child and parent. Both her and Nurse Practitioner Holguin are a winning team and I highly recommend them! - Amy Orona

Thank you for being so observant and referring me to my opthamologist. As you can see it led him to order an MRI, which revealed a mass- apparently of long standing! I certainly do thank you for referring me. Sounds weird, doesn't it? To say that my dermatologist led to dermatologist let to finding a brain tumor? Eternally grateful.

The staff at Dr. Martin s office were so nice and helpful. I ve had back pain for a few years now and went to other spine doctors in El Paso and they told me I needed surgery. Dr. Martin told me all I needed was therapy and pain management. Dr. Martin gave me my life back and the process couldn t have been easier!

Adolfo Benitez MD
Dr. Benitez is a fantastic physician but his staff particularly those working his phone lines fail and sympathizing with his patients. Almost feels like you have to go to great measures if you want to either speak or see him. He definitely needs to better educate those working and representing him.

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.
