I had a work-related back injury, and was sent to CorpOHS to see a doctor. She gave me pain meds, and sent me to a few sessions of Physical Therapy. The therapists are great. Very friendly, easy-going, knowledgeable. Not that I plan to go back there on a regular basis, but I would recommend them. Great practice.

Amber Hill Physical Therapy
Several years ago I hurt my knee when we moved. Before long I had a lot of pain...couldn't use by NordicTrack or walk very long. I went to Amber Hill for some therapy and they did an excellent job. I was soon back to exercising and I have been ever since. They are wonderful, caring people!

This office is very friendly and kind. I had to have an abscessed tooth pulled ASAP and was able to get in the same day. Dr. Kovalchick was very nice and did a great job on my mouth. Thank you!
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.
