I can not say enough about the quality of care I received during the entire time of my rehab. After a successful operation, I decided to do Parkways in house therapy. From my first day till the last session, I was treated both professionally and careingly. Starting with the receptionists to the therapists, you could not ask for better treatment. There were several times I had to change my scheduled appointments, but the two receptionists happily made it to accommodate me. I especially want to thank both John and Jessica for all of there help during my daily sessions as they coached me through all of my exercises. They were both compassionate and patient, but yet motivated me to accomplish my goals. I would recommend this rehab facility and it's staff to anyone needing these types of services. It is truly a 5 Star operation that I am truly grateful to that has gotten me back to where I was before my injury. THanks to everyone!

Parkway had some of the best doctors in town. I went there for Dr. Daniel Sullivan and connected with Dr. Leslie Foster and some other excellent people, including superb physician assistant, Pascarello. However PNSI has some of the worst administration that I have ever encountered. They make mistakes about billing and deny appts. They charge for letters relevant to insurance and disability coverage and seem to get confused about what are separate requests (albeit, the insurance companies have been excessive in requiring repetitive info on some claims though at a slightly different state. The result is attrition of the best doctors and fewer competent people available, longer wait times for appts., etc. When I tried to address this with someone adminstrative, they dismissed me. So it, and I, go(es) on.

My family doctor explained to me I was headed for a wheel chair because of the damage to my lower back, if something wasn't done. He directed me to Parkway and Dr Holmes. It took 3 surgeries and a lot of phys. therapy to fix me, I wanted to give up many times, but the doctors and staff kept me positive. I lead an almost normal life now thanks to the professional and caring people at Parkway.

Tom P has been my provider of choice for over 8 months now, and I have found him to be extremely knowledgeable about my RSD. He provides me with the best of care, offering multiple interventions and strategies to help deal with my chronic pain. I am thankful for the opportunity to interact with such a compassionate, albeit 'no-nonsense,' doctor!

I have been a patient for about 7 or 8 years. I have had 3 surgerys on back 1 on arm. I have recommended Parkway to 4 friends. All came here and love it like I do. Everyone friendly, PA's listen carefully to what you say. Doctor explains procedure completely. I am very happy with Parkway Neuroscience and Spine.

Dr Waheed has been a great addition to Parkway. I was reserved at first getting a new Dr but really appreciate Dr Waheed's. Down to earth manner and professionalism he takes a more holistic approach to medicine than Dr's I have seen in the past rather than trying to push meds.

It is always a pleasure coming to Parkway Neuroscience and Spine. Tom Pasquarello is wonderful and has helped keep my condition in check. And checking out is wonderful with Taylor and Michaela. They both go beyond and above to make me feel welcome and taken care of.

Dr Larkin has helped my back pain more than all other procedures combined. He has worked me in for an injection when I did not have an appointment and the pain was way above a 10. Dr Larkin shows genuine care and compassion for my pain. He is a life saver!

Was very impressed with Dr Waheed. He reviewed my situation. Listened to what I had to say regarding my problem, then made recommendations that sounded viable and well worth trying. I am looking forward to working with Dr Waheed to resolve my situation.

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.
