Little Rock Walk-in Medical Clinic
I found the clinic through a google search because I do not have a regular doctor I see. I hardly ever have the need to see one. I am uninsured at the moment but found myself with a rash caused by an allergic reaction to something that I had come in contact with. I treated it with a couple of things, but it didn't seem to be making a difference so I began looking for a doctor.I called ahead to ask for an appointment. They told me to be there at 4pm, so I showed up about 15 minutes early expecting some paperwork. I was back with the nurse and doctor at 4pm and was leaving by 4:45. They weren't too busy that particular afternoon, but I thought they were very nice and everything moved quickly which I appreciated. Dr Murad and the nurse practitioner were extremely nice and helpful. They answered questions and explained everything to me and prescribed some things to get rid of the rash quickly. It did not cost me an arm and a leg and it was 100% worth it. Dr Murad even sent a text the next day to check on me and made sure I knew I could email, call or text or just come back by to see him if there was a problem or just to let him check the progress. Great place!

Wirges, Richard S, MD
If I could rate Dr. Wirges with 10 stars, I would!! He's wonderful! He's a very caring and kind doctor, which is VERY rare to find these days! He did my carpal tunnel surgery on my right hand, and I'm recovering beautifully! His nurses are also very nice! The administrative staff is another story, unfortunately! They're what we call, "Nice-Nasty"!! I've had a couple of "run-ins" with a couple of members of the clinic's staff, and I wish there was a way I could avoid them and skip right to seeing the doctor. Rarely, do you hear a "Please" or "Thank-you"! The space between the seating and where the flow of traffic is very limited, so when someone passes you, they're almost in your lap! But you don't get a "Excuse me" or any other niceties! If I could, I would rate them a 2 1/2 stars. But this review is about Dr. Wirges. I think he should teach a class to a LOT of other doctors, and call it "Bedside Manners 101". If you have any issues with your hand (I believe he's exclusively a hand doctor-Orthopedic Hand Specialist), then by all means, book an appointment with him! He's a rare jewel! I love him!!

Little Rock Audiology
There are four surgeons that practice at the Little Rock Surgical Clinic, but I only have experience with one of them. Everyone is very professional and caring and they'll do everything they can to take care of your needs. Every time I've had an appointment, I've been called within 30 minutes of my appointment time. One experience I had with them: I showed up for an appointment extremely weak from severe dehydration and they wanted me to go straight to the hospital, which conveniently is right across the street. I had driven myself to the clinic, but they didn't want me to risk my life, even driving the short 2 minutes it would take to get to the hospital. My surgeon actually offered to pay a cab fare, but luckily, there was a nurse there that was willing to personally take me and make sure I was taken care of. I strongly recommend these doctors for whatever your needs may be. There are two colorectal surgeons and two general surgeons. I really do love this clinic!

I was referred to Dr. Anthony Capocelli, a neurosurgeon at OrthoArkansas, by one of his colleagues, Dr. William Blankenship. Dr. Capocelli has performed both of my surgeries: the 1st being a discectomy and the 2nd being a spinal fusion. He is the best physician ever! He specializes in a condition called "Chiari malformation," where part of the brain pushes back into the spinal cavity. Patients come from all over the country to see him. He's got a very conservative approach and doesn't perform surgery unless he absolutely has to. He performs every test possible before looking at surgery. He's incredibly friendly, I feel like he's part of my family now. He's been there for me every step of the way. I would recommend him to ANYONE who is looking for a neurologist for possible spinal surgery or for Chiari malformation. I absolutely love him!

Mocek Spine
Gosh, I cannot believe these reviews are about the same physician and office as the one that I'm familiar with. I had complained of pain to my GYN and to my PCP and they simply ignored me. When I finally talked to a neurosurgeon and he said he couldn't help surgically, he gave me the referral to Dr. Mocek. My interaction with him leads me to believe that he is anything but a jerk! He has always been kind and helpful to me. I have to admit the price of the drug testing is daunting, but because I have much less pain than before, I just put up with it. I've had some bland interactions with some of the staff, but I've also had some great ones with nursing staff on their clinic days as well as during procedures. The scheduling persons are always courteous and efficient. Wish you'd give them another try!

Mocek Spine
i have had several pain doctors throughout the years and i have been so blessed to have found Dr. Mocek. He has an excellent bedside manner, is patient and listens to you. He takes his time and finds out the best option for you. I have an uncommon nerve disorder and is extremely painful but with Dr. Moceks help my pain is under control which is a dream come true. I have my life back which is what he strives for. Typically depending on what is being done you are looking at maybe 45 minutes to an hour wait. unfortunately for pain doctors that is just part of it. I have waited MUCH longer at ther pain doctors. If you are looking for a kind, trustworthy, dr that will take action to get you out of pain he is your man

Hi my name is Tony, about a year and a half ago my PC referred me to a place called Ortho Ar. I have really bad back pain and have lots of reasons wrong with it. I've been jerked around from e.r. to e.r. since 2001, felt all alone and lost hope in ever living a good pain free life. Anyway, I meet Dr. Buck, WOW he's the ONLY Dr. That cares and is doing everything as fast as can be to help me feel normal again. He's the BEST and if you get the chance go see him first! 5 stars all the way, and the front staff are the nicest I have seen ever, yea it gets busy at times and gets stressed out for them but really who dosent. Wonderful part of my family now, thanks everyone at Ortho AR.!!!

Touchstone Physical Therapy
About four years ago I injured my SI joint. It was the most pain I ever experienced. A friend recommended Touchstone. Mike, the therapist worked with me slowly and carefully until I recuperated. He knew exactly what to do. He not only is a licensed therapist but he also is certified in SI joint problems, which is not always easy to find. I still do the exercises that he taught me and I have very little problems today. I use to take shots for the problem and even contemplated surgery at one time. But thats in the past now. I have a daughter who is a physical therapist so I know a little about theropy. And believe me he is good.

ARC Express Walk-In Clinic
I would highly recommend ARC Express Walk-In Clinic. I wasn't feeling well so I called the clinic; they told me to come right in, that they could take care of me then. I filled out some medical information and was seen immediately by Donna Wright. She gave me a thorough exam, diagnosed me and wrote me a prescription. All the staff was courteous and knowledgeable. I will go back to the clinic. Oh, yes, and their price was very reasonable; a lot cheaper than my doctor charges me! If you don't have medical insurance, you should really try this clinic; you won't be disappointed.

Little Rock Walk-in Medical Clinic
Dr. Murad is simply the best. I live in Oklahoma City, but am in Little Rock for business often. I have chronic asthma and need treatment for it frequently. Dr. Murad spends the appropriate time with me and seems more genuinely concerned than any doctor I've ever seen - including specialists. Sometimes the wait is a bit long, but I'm okay with that because I know he's spending time with his patient - as he does with me. Common sense and caring. A rare trait these days. I'll be driving to LR if the need arises in order to see him. Yeah - he's that good! ;)
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.
