Very long wait every time I go. Doc did not want to re-fill a script I really need to make it through the day. Going to a different doctor. Waiting 3 hours one time.

Tran, Alex M.D.
This doctor does not deserve a single star rating. My 14 year old daughter has a L5 stress fracture. We went for a followup visit at the 3 week period which is 1/4 of the recommended treatment for her condition. At this point the doctor discussed with my daughter how her back may never heal and she may have to find or give up the sport she has been so passionate about. Pretty hard blow for a 14 year old to take. Needless to say we left with my daughter in tears. She even started crying in the appointment and the Dr. Tran had the nerve to ask her what was wrong and why was she crying. Really Dr. Tran. You have a PHD are your really that ignorant?????
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.
