East Valley Neurosurgery
Due to nature of the emergency surgery I needed involving my spinal cord, I was a little hesitant to just accept the hospital on-call neurosurgeon. We also couldn't find many reviews for him and actually considered discharging and going to somewhere like Barrows. But Dr. Iskandar and his staff were phenomenal. He explained things well, visited me every day before and after surgery (even on the weekend) and best of all never once made us feel like he was rushed. He stood there answering even our dumbest questions. He didn't have what I would call an exuberant personality, but write frankly I much prefer a very stable, confident personality in a neurosurgeon. His assistant told my wife she would call her during surgery at certain intervals and you could almost set your clock by them she was so consistent. Just an amazing experience, something we have not always had with Banner surgeons. Highly, highly recommend. He's world class.

The worst Dr I have ever seen in 32 years of being alive. They make u wait while he reviews your fil . Toke almost 2 months to get an appt. Then show up he asked about 5 questions and said well I wouldn't do surgery on u I don't see anything goes wrong. Well I guess I make up all the pain in my head. How can I have a 1mm disc bulges in 2011 and now at 8mm with nothing wrong. Worst Dr ever. If you are referred here ask for another referral.

Money, money.... money. It is all about the body. Seeing 200+ "patients" per week and maxing out whatever insurance benefits you may have. Then an immediate lein is put on you if you are late with a payment. I was told that I would need life time care of 3 visits per week. Saw a real doctor and found out that wasn't the case. How do these doctors even sleep at night!!!!!!!????

I went into this office and was also pressured into a high sales tactic of care plan. The insurance companies need to shut down office like this. Dr. Petuli is a complete waste of time as id the rest of this office. They get angry if you don't sign on. However, unlike the othe reviews, I simply found a better chiropractor and am very happy. I see them 2 times a month, with no copay as I am medicare and have a secondary. They agreed only an unethical doctor would try and sell a long term care plan without even knowing the underl"lying" cause. This chain is all about money , not caring about their patients, in particular the elderly!

I am now a believer in chiropractors!! I was in so much pain that I finally decided to give an adjustment a try. It was honestly the best decision I have ever made! The office is a medical clinic as well so I was able to get a shot to help the pain as well. Dr. Crismon is on point! Love the guy!!

On my initial visit, I was a little apprehensive. The staff and doctors at DSCC quickly put my mind at ease. My wife and I left with complete confidence in their treatment plan. After almost 3 months, I can say we were not disappointed. K Franklin

Dr. Johnston and the rest of the staff at Desert Springs Chiropractic are phenomenal. I started attending 3 months ago with immobilizing back pain, and they were immediately able to pinpoint the cause and begin treatment. Within a week of treatment I was not only able to resume day-to-day activities, but I also felt good enough to return to work. With only a few months of treatment, I already feel 99% better. The staff is caring and extremely knowledgeable, and it shows in the quality of work they perform as well as the friendly atmosphere of the office. I would highly, highly recommend them.

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.
