Dr. Ashley L Greenman, MD
Dr Greenman is nice enough and seemed knowledgeable. Scheduled to have blood drawn in 3 weeks. The wait time to have blood draw exceeded an hour. The staff attitude was deplorable. I tried to reschedule, but would be almost 2 months to HAVE BLOOD DRAWN! I would not recommend due to her staff.

Dr. Thomas M Rossowski, MD
Made me feel very comfortable before, during and after my surgery. Talk to myself and family where we could understand what was going to happen during and after surgery.

Luv my PCP/family doctor!Dr Guillermo, his nurse Christy, and the Administrative Asst, Ms Sarah are always ready to help as needed. Every time I enter the office, I am greeted with a smile. Dr Guillermo spend the necessary one on one time with his patients to ensure quality medical care is provided. I really appreciate all that Dr Guillermo and his staff do for me and my family.

DR David W Hardey MD
Dr. Hardey hasn't been at this location for well over a year and to be honest I don't miss him one bit. I thought he was rude and his knowledge of the medical field was laughable. I wouldn't go back to see him if I was dying.

Receptionists were nice. You are given a number according to order, you are lined up for vitals, then you wait for your number to show up on a screen while you fill out paperwork. When your number shows up, you find your own way through the maze to your room. An assistant did walk in, in a bit, and asked a few questions. When doc came in he allowed me to ask some questions, but had no clear answers without having to refer me elsewhere. But did give me a prescription for PT. As I was walking out someone noticed I still had my clipboard with my medical history and asked for it. I have lingering medical issues and it would have been nice that they be reviewed prior to doctor interview. I found my way through the maze to pay and asked for a copy of the diagnosis (the checkout girl seemed perturbed that I asked, so I had to explain I had several medical problems and this would help me keep them straight) and was told there was none. Does the word cattle come to your mind the way it has mine??

Dr. Alan Hinton, MD - Hinton Orthopedics
We care about our patients, and we want them to know it. When you call our office, you will speak to a person, not a machine. When you come in to the office, you will see the doctor, not a nurse practitioner. We want to make sure that your experience with Hinton Orthopedics is nothing short of exceptional.

The doctors are fantastic. But the message system is a total wreck. A person can leave a message on a recording or talk to the receptionist and the message does not get delivered. Every time this has happened to me. Someone needs to fix the problem. It is aggravating to have to sit for an hour for a script that was called in days before.

Dr. Richard Thomas Shimer, MD
I have always had a great experience with Dr. Shimer when I go in to speak with him. He is friendly and answers my questions realistically.

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.
