Brielle Orthopedics
Went to visit dr sergeant for aching shoulder. Took an xray and said what I didn't have. No severe arthritis, etc. Handed me a generic shoulder exercise sheet with no follow up. I felt like he was far more interested in his young female staff than he was me. I called several times to pick up my xrays and couldn't get anyone to answer. I finally did and when I went to pick up my xrays, they changed me $10.00. I had also gone to the office in Brielle for a problem I was having with my hand. I found dr. Kat to be a good doctor, however, once again, the staff was so busy talking to each other, they member billed my insurance company. I spent over an hour lb 3 different days trying to fix this. I will member again usr Brielle Ortho and I wouldn't recommend it.
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.
