Dr Kelty does not listen to his patients, he is arguementative. All but called me a liar saying i didnt know when or where i had my tests done. Infact i was right. He couldnt find them because he was spelling my name wrong!when he realized his mistake he rushed through my appointment in 2 min and got me out of there! He thinks im returning for a follow up. If you want a pompas know it all who wont listen to you see dr kelty youll love him

Waited two months to get into this guy who was referred to me by my doctor. When I arrived, there were 10 people in front of me and no one had been seen... There was a sign on the window saying they were in a meeting. They came out about 9:10 (my appt. was for 9). Answered many questions by the nurse. Doctor came in, slouched down in his chair, unkempt appearance, basically reiterated my bio and said "well, I guess you can try a spinal stimulator but you"ll have to do a week trial". He added that he can't give me medication for at least two weeks because he needs a urinalysis that takes two weeks to come back. No one asked for a urinalysis. Never got out of his chair. Never assessed me. Never asked me about my pain, what I've tried in the past. Horrible is being nice when describing his demeanor. DON'T GO!

I have been a patient of hers for almost 4 years and I'm still curious as to what it is she does besides have you wait extremely long in the waiting room and then an additional 30 minutes in the exam room to only bill our insurance for a brief talk. she rarely diagnose a problem herself and I understand how medicine works in there are specialty doctors however this woman does nothing but refer patients out to other doctors to again bill your insurance to see her. in my opinion she has way too many patients then what she has time for that now is affecting the care of her patients. I no longer believe it is about the care and concern she has for her patients but the billing of our insurance. if you are looking for Dr to spend time in finding the results in your care that you need this is not the doctor for you. also please put two to four hours a side when you do go to her office for a scheduled visit keep in mind this appointment was scheduled for you and you still wait to 2-4 hours. if you are in a process of searching for a primary doctor please continue to look unless you are willing to spend your day in her office for no apparent reason! I myself had to get in new primary doctor.

Very happy with the services here. I began coming here just as a walk-in, but became a patient after seeing how much the staff here cares for their patients. The location is convenient for me and I definitely appreciate how kind the staff is.

The hours are the probably one of the best things here. The staff is pretty nice and they definitely know what they are talking about, but I really love how convenient the hours are.

Coastal Orthopaedics
After an ice-related serious accident in December 2009 and a displaced complete fracture of my collarbone, I was operated on by this highly professional yet pleasantly personable surgeon to repair the damage. He installed a steel plate to reconnect the clavicle, and the healing process was very smooth, with no medication required to control the post-op discomfort. The relatively small incision scar is already fading. After only three months, I am also almost entirely back to my full range of motion and previous level of fitness. I therefore have the utmost confidence in Dr. Raukar's medical expertise. His experience and education at the Mayo Clinic certainly would lead me to believe that he is equally adept in his field of joint replacement surgery. Sandra Denninger, MinisterHummingbird Ministry
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.
