DO NOT GO TO THIS PLACE!!!! This was the most embarrassing, most unprofessional staff that I have ever encountered in my entire life!! My horrible experience here will never be forgotten. The doctor embarrassed me to my face and madee feel like a worthless piece of scum on the floor. Also, don't call for more pain medicine here because you will be labeled as a drug-seeker and treated like trash!!! I will never ever step foot anywhere near this place again. No one here gives a damn about you or your health.

DO NOT GO TO THIS PLACE. The doctors do not care at all. They are not thorough, very rude and clearly all they care about is money not your wellbeing. The doctor completely ignored everything I told him about my pain and seemed like he didn't want to be there at all. Sat waiting in the exam room for 30 minutes and once doctor Haydel finally came in he rushed me out in 3 minutes, telling me to take some medication.. I am horrified. They also messed up the dates on my paperwork and then refused to change their mistake without me making a whole new appointment 3 weeks out. Do yourself a favor and do not place your health and wellbeing in the hands of the crooks at Houma orthopedic.
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.
