Dr. Steven B Kraus, MD
I recently quit being a patient there. On my last visit I was denied service because they had instituted a new policy within the previous six weeks and not bothered to notify me about it. This new policy requires patients having certain insurances to provide proof that they have paid their insurance premium for that month. If you don't have written proof then you will not be seen. They tried to blame this on the Affordable Care Act but that is not true. I work in healthcare and know this is false. My insurance company was flabbergasted when I told them about it. I was told they phoned the practice to get an explanation but were spoken to rudely then hung up on.They also want you to pay a $25 annual fee to fill out forms. I never had any forms to be filled out. This fee does not cover the cost of transferring your records to another doctor. That costs extra despite the fact that all the "paperwork" is electronic and can be sent electronically to another doctor.

Gardner, Alan M MD
My husband and I are both patients at Gardner Dermatology and have seen both the PA (Mike Kelleher and Dr. Gardner). The staff is extremely friendly from the front office staff to the medical assistants in the back. After the first initial visit with Dr. Gardner, my husband had to schedule a surgery to remove a pre cancerous place. My husband was able to schedule the surgery quickly with Dr. Gardner. I am also a client in the spa (Gardner Med Spa) - which I love. All the ladies are very professional and knowledgable about their services and all the different products they carry.I would recommend this practice to anyone. I am very happy with them.

My experience has been terrific! I have been to many psychiatrists over the years and Dr. Banov has been the most thorough and progressive doctor I have ever seen. He offered traditional treatment options but also reviewed a number of natural treatment options I could try as well. I had to call on several occasions and he was responsive and empathic. Unfortunately managed care has forced many of these doctors out of doing therapy but he referred me to a colleague who I work with in counseling. I am so much better than I have ever felt and can recommend this practice without reservation.

Espy III, Goodman B, MD
Dr. Espy is the reason I am still here today, and the mother of two beautiful children. I've never met such a caring, passionate doctor who takes so much time with his patients to help them understand the care that they are receiving. I cannot thank him enough for all that he has done for me and my family! I believe 100% that if it were not for his expertise and experience, I would not have made it through my second delivery.

Go see Dr. Dennis at Resurgeons. She has a great bedside manner. She is thoughtful and cares about your well being. I have been getting treatment at Resurgeons since 2007 and she has taken the best care of me. Also, Dr. Daftari is awesome. He performed back surgery on me last year and is very kind and compassionate. I will never trust anyone more than these two physians!

I'm a 44 year male and visited Dr. Snell for the first time in October 2014. I highly recommend Dr. Snell and found him to be thorough, knowledgeable, straightforward and friendly. His staff is great as well. You don't have to pay to park or park in a garage as his office is in a stand alone building that is very accessible and in a convenient location.

What do you want? Form or substance? The office ain't much to look at , ok. But, Dr. Williams has been at this for 40 years. He is a great Doctor! He's old school -- he takes lots of time with his patients. He gets to know them and shows genuine interest in their well being and he is brilliant. He knows his stuff.

DR Charles C Ho Doctor of Medicine
Dr. Ho treated two children, my mother, and myself. He has great bedside manners, patient with explanations, and thorough knowledge of medicine. I am amazed by his ability to treat small kids, young adults, and older people alike. My mother had cataract surgery by Dr. Ho and had a great outcome. I highly recommend him.

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.
