I highly recommend Dr. Wong for acupuncture and chiropractic care. My complete recovery from hip surgery is attributed to him. I did do a lot of exercises which he recommended. The degeneration of my knees due to arthritis and old injuries seems to have been abated since I have less pain and more strength and stability. now. To bring balance to your body (which helps your body to heal) he may use any or a combination of manipulation, electroaccupuncture, laser. I do believe that these modalities have made a significant impact in helping the rehabilitation for my acute and chronic problems. Wishing you good health!

We had no issues when we were there for my husband's Kidney Transplant in May of 2013. Since the Transplant my husband has improved daily in his health. We now mainly deal with the Pharmacy on a monthly basis when they ship the required medications to us Free of charge. Plus, we see Dr. Yakub one of the Post Kidney Transplant physicians when he is up here in the Elkhart County Area on the first Thursday of the month when scheduled. We appreciate his dedication to his patients and their improved health.

Without going into a lot of detail, we had an relative that received some care at this hospital. (not life threatening or anything) Things went okay, but we were not happy with the way she was treated, and not too pleased with the staff in general. Half of them seem to constantly be on their phones. Some were kind of rude. They didn't seem to care. Maybe they just had some personal problems or something. But that's no excuse. Our relative was extremely unhappy also.

Made an appointment after getting HIP 2.0 insurance; my appointment was yesterday and I was being seen primarily just to get into the system. The place seemed clean, the intake clerk was professional, the cna and doctor were very professional, and I only had to wait about 10 minutes. A very good experience

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.
