My 22 year old daughter is a dance major at University of Arizona. She had an ankle injury and saw a doctor at this practice in March 2017. She was provided a walking boot at the time of the appointment. It was an Ossur Form Fit Walking Boot and it sells for $47.50 at Walmart. She was charged $499 for this boot. Our insurance paid 50% of the cost and left us with the rest. Their billing department has been less an cordial about this issue. They claim she had signed a form for the boot. I have three kids and gone through dozens of boots and ankle braces over the years. Never have I had to sign a form before. That in itself is a red flag for me. They are sending it to me. This incident alone demonstrates that this is a very unethical business and I would be very cautious engaging them.

I was referred to this office by my Primary Dr. I went in last Friday September 23, 2016, before we walked in a patient exiting the office warned us of a very long wait. My appointment was scheduled for 10:30am, I was not taken back till 11:30am, then I waited another 45 minutes in the room for Dr. Today is Tuesday, I started calling at 8:15 this morning as I have to schedule my knee surgery, I was told both women who schedule surgeries were in with patients ? Then called an hr. after, same thing. Again I called at 11:20am, the very rude receptionist told me they had 48 to 72 hrs. to call patients back. The three times I called the receptionists were very rude, I have never dealt with anyone as rude as these girls. My surgeon told me on Friday I needed to schedule the surgery really soon, now how can I if they don't call me back.

Dr Medlan is the best but the office staff and the nurses are the worst. Failed to send orders over to the x-ray place failed to tell us the x-ray had moved. LONG LONG LONG LONG WAITS at the office, Looking for a new Dr with a staff that cares

From Sandra O. (July 23, 2010) I recently had both of my feet operated on by Dr. Kiarash. Not only is he an incredibly skilled surgeon, but his entire office and support team is phenomenal as well! I have absolutely zero reservations in recommending them highly!
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.
