Dermatology & Skin Cancer Center - Joplin
REALLY check your billing. I was refused my appointment due to a bill the Kansas City office says we don't owe. I strongly suspect we aren't the only ones who're apparently being double-billed or cross-billed or over-billed. There is definitely a problem here. Kansas City billing says we're clear, the local office is trying to bill us for 6 months ago! It's all about the money, no concern at all for the questionable spots I have. This should be investigated. BE CAREFUL, they're the only game in town, they apparently get to make the rules.

Bowles Randy
Dr Bowles is a rare find in internal doctors these days. I've been very pleased with his handling of my numerous medical issues and he is always able to get me in quickly if that is necessary. I'd hate to lose him as my primary care doctor!!

Trey M Butler MD
Excellent patient care by Dr. Butler and his entire staff. Overall a wonderful experience.Dr. Butler actually takes his time with his patients and answers any and all questions you may have. His office doesn't seem to overbook patients like most Doctors offices these days that make you feel like cattle being herded through as quickly as possible.

Dermatology & Skin Cancer Center - Joplin
I was referred for a Routine Skin Cancer screening due to a family history of skin cancer. I learned 3 weeks AFTER my appointment that the Joplin Dermatology and Skin Cancer Center coded it to Health Insurance Billing incorrectly. I called and asked the Joplin Billing Representative to re-code it correctly, as a Skin Cancer Screening. I was told that their office rarely does skin cancer screenings and that when a screening is done they usually find something so therefore they will not code my bill as a skin cancer screening. I stated that nothing was found on my skin cancer screening. She agreed but told me their office NEVER codes a medical bill for a Skin Cancer Screening so therefore their office will not re-code my bill. I explained again that my primary care physician had made the referral for the screening and I had never been warned this would not be billed as a Skin Cancer Screening. She refused to correct their medical coding. I have reported this to my primary care physician and filed a complaint with my health insurance carrier. Beware!!!! This office, as far as medical billing is concerned, does NOT have the patient's best interest in mind. Furthermore, if others are experiencing similar problems, you may contact the Missouri Attorney General's office to file a complaint.

Knudsen III John MD
Dr. Knudsen is a fantastic doctor and understands the pain I am going thru. He has helped me immensely with the spinal injections. Here is also a very Christian man and is very serious about it. I really love having Dr. Knudsen as my pain doctor.

Walker Renee A
I have had excellent outcome with deviated septum repair. Not the most painless surgery, but once healed I haven't regretted it. Dr Walker is very personable and professional. Highly recommend.

Gibson Brandon Md
I saw Dr. Gibson for over 5 months; he treated me with the same medication varying doses forall that time and I am still sick. He is not willing to try other treatments and refused me a pertinent test which was done over 5 months ago so he suspects it is still correct. He really knows very little about my disease and doesn't care for you suggesting any treatment. So I have found a new doc who has been around for a long time and IS willing to try the treatments I have read about. If Gibson doesn't know what the heck he is doing then he should have referred me to a specialist instead of wasting my time. Sick for 5 months!

Walker Renee A
I have been to Mrs. Walkers office on two separate occasions. I had to wait less than 10 minutes on both visits before I was taken back to an office. Renee was very professional and knowledgeable and all of her staff was very friendly and professional as well. I would highly recommend her to others!

As you may have noticed there are very few written remarks on Walker just star ratings and who knows who did that. I arrived 10 min early to fill out paperwork then waited 1 hr. and 15 min and Walker never appeared and no one even came to explain what the hold up was. No regard for other peoples time; so I walked out.This other remark on this page says nothing about Renee Walker's ability to solve your problem !
Tips & Advices
Radiological exams can be either diagnostic or interventional. Diagnostic exams are intended to detect the presence of a certain condition, like a bone fracture or a tumor inside the body. Interventional radiology uses imaging techniques to assist in treating a condition, usually through surgery, but the procedure itself is not intended to have a direct impact on the outcome of the disease.
The exact process of an exam will vary depending on the specific type of imaging procedure and the goal of the test. Patients will usually be situated near a machine that will direct the appropriate form of energy to the part of the body being examined. Technicians help patients perform the necessary steps to complete the process.
Most imaging exams do not have any immediate side effects. The most important side effect of many forms of radiology is the exposure to small doses of radiation. In almost all cases, a single exam will deliver a radiation dose that is too low to have any effect, but over repeated exposure, the risk of developing cancer from this radiation increases. Radiologists take several precautions to limit exposure on behalf of patients as well as themselves and their staff.
Results from an imaging procedure may be available almost instantly (as with X-rays and ultrasound), or might take a few minutes to develop. However, in some cases it will take a radiologist additional time to analyze and report on the images collected, so results may be delayed by a few hours or days.
Radiologists can perform a variety of imaging procedures depending on their specialty. Common examples include:
  • X-rays.
  • Computed tomography (CT scans).
  • Ultrasound.
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
  • Positron emission tomography (PET).
  • Interventional radiology: Using specialized imaging techniques to assist with surgery, either immediately before or in the process of a surgical procedure.
