Dr. Jerry Speight Grimes, MD
I can say that this experience stands out because of its COMPLETE LACK OF INTEGRITY. I was referred to Dr. Grimes by my primary care physician. At the same time my doctor ordered an MRI. My appointment with Dr. Grimes was A FULL MONTH after the referral. I went for my visit with full confidence that the MRI had been forwarded to Dr. Grimes. He ordered a round of X-rays when he had a more definitive test at his disposal. I declined the X-Rays for that reason. After waiting 90 minutes, Dr. Jerry Grimes sent his nurse to the exam room to tell me that Dr. Grimes would not see me without the X-Rays. He may be a great orthopedist, but in my opinion, HE IS COMPLETELY DEFICIENT IN INTEGRITY. I cannot in good faith recommend Dr. Jerry Grimes to ANYONE.
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.
