Orthopedics

Orthopedic doctors treat patients of all ages for injuries and conditions affecting the skeletal system, and associated muscles, joints and ligaments.

Health insurance companies would prefer you to seek care from their in-network providers because it costs them less. If you choose to see an out-of-network provider, it will cost you more. (Photo by Photo by Karen Geswein)

flat on his back on an icy sidewalk, motionless and unable to move his limbs. The life of the Angie’s List member in Mundelein, Ill., changed with a single, fateful slip during 
a 2008 ice storm that fractured

a millimeter of completely severing

Sounds like you should be pursuing a disability claim.  Also, you could speak to your previous doctor frankly about your concerns.  
Have they made orthotics for your shoes that distribute your weight better?

Whoops - I just realized that you may have been looking for Angie's List information on providers outside your home market. To see information on providers that aren't in your home Angie's List chapter, you can elect to pay a small addditional fee (generally about $15 to $20) to add another city's Angie's List to your existing memember.

Hello, this is Kyle K from the Member Care Department.

I apologize for my delay. I apologize, but orthopedic surgeons fall under our Orthopedics category which is included in the Health list. Currently, you're enrolled in our Basic membership which only includes access to our Home list.
 
If you'd like to upgrade your membership to the Plus or Premium plan, we'll be happy to assist you with this search. If interested, give us a call at 1.888.944.5478 and we'll take care of this adjustment. Again, I do apologize for any misunderstanding.

Thanks for writing! - Kyle K

Hi,

 

This is James W. with Member Care. Thanks for posting your question.

 

It looks like when you signed up online on 8/5/2014, that you accidentally joined our greater Portland chapter instead of our Salem/Corvallis chapter that your zip code falls under. I have transferred your subscription to that chapter, so you will now have access to the correct area.

I hope this information helps! Please let me know if I can assist further. You can respond to this thread or submit a new Answers post. You can also reach us at 1-866-783-2980. We're open weekdays from 8:00 am - 9:00 pm and Saturdays 8:00 am - 5:00 pm ET.

 

Thanks again!

First saw Dr.
La Jolla Orthopedic Surgeons Provider Name Locked
@ Triangle Orthopedics August 5, 2014 for knee pain. We talked about options to try to avoid knee replacement. We started with steroid injections which worked very well, but as it wore off pain was back. The he gave another injection that did not last as long. We did the same of 3 hyalgan injections which did nothing. Decision was made to do replacement which was done on May 5, 2015. Surgery went well and recovery has been great.

There are many physicians that work on hands. Dr

I called Dr.
La Jolla Orthopedic Surgeons Provider Name Locked
's office a few days after my trip to the E.R. and was able to get in the following week. I
brought copies of the x-rays taken at the hospital. At first glance he
thought that my shoulder had separated. They did another set of x-rays
and that proved to be wrong. He had me do some exercises for a couple
of weeks to see if that would change anything. At the end of August last year they scheduled me for an MRI. I had torn my rotator cuff in two places very badly, torn another tendon down to the bone and my bicep was not attached. They scheduled surgery for two weeks later (my request so that I could attend a women's retreat in Malibu, Canada). I will never use another Orthopedic surgeon if I need to have surgery again. Dr.
La Jolla Orthopedic Surgeons Provider Name Locked
is THE BEST! And he has to be as he is one of the Orthopedic surgeon's for the Seattle Seahawks. So if he's good enough for the Seahawk's then he's good enough for me. LOVE Dr.

Staff is wonderful...I have scheduled surgery with Dr
La Jolla Orthopedic Surgeons Provider Name Locked
on my back....I've had numerous questions and the office staff no matter who you deal with are very kind. Also use their patient portal which is convenient and prompt. I will continue to deal with them....but prefer to see them in their Chalfont Office. Willow Grove is a bit far for me to travel, plus requires I take more time off of work. But, all in all I like not only my doctor, who has a nice sense of humor, but also the very thorough staff who honestly takes time with you and would suggest them to anyone who has a Orthopedic Problem.

It went great! Dr
La Jolla Orthopedic Surgeons Provider Name Locked
took the time needed to explain the results of my MRI and let me ask all the questions needed to understand my current situation and what I might expect in the future related to my condition. I couldn't have been more pleased!
Also, my elderly mother-in-law broke a bone just above her ankle and went to Dr
La Jolla Orthopedic Surgeons Provider Name Locked
's office to get a cast. The office personnel and medical staff who helped her were GREAT! She was quite anxious and they put her at ease, patiently explained her condition, treated the problem, helped line up home health... all follow-up appointments went smoothly. NO complaints for either me or my mother-in-law. I would recommend this doctor!

I waited over 30 minutes for them to begin the exam.
La Jolla Orthopedic Surgeons Provider Name Locked
, the PA, apologized for the delay. Dr.
La Jolla Orthopedic Surgeons Provider Name Locked
Sullivan seemed hurried. I was quickly diagnosed with bursitis, and told to have a cortisone shot, which would alleviate the pain quickly. I was then told to have physical therapy, and the should would be good as new in 6 weeks.



This was not the case in the slightest. I was not advised of the possibility of an allergic reaction to the cortisone shot, which I had. When I called to ask why the pain had actually increased, I did not receive a response within 24 hours. I had to call a 2nd time, and still not response. The 3rd time I had to use my "Dr." title, which I hate doing, but then I did get an immediate response. There was no pain management or control, and I was not provided with any other options. Physical therapy proved to be not something I could do due to the pain. I tried the best I could to follow through with the physical therapy, but it did not help.



I then went to another orthopedic physician and had a 2nd opinion. I have what is referred to as "frozen shoulder" and I have classic textbook symptoms. The new physician was polite, but you could tell he was surprised this very clear condition was missed in the original exam. This is why I am writing the review, because while I understand people make mistakes, when you look-up frozen shoulder my symptoms or textbook perfect. I'm very concerned this was missed, especially because one of the markers of this condition is having diabetes, which I communicated to the physician during my initial exam. The 2nd physician also identified how my pain level needed to be addressed, which was never done by the first physician. As a health care provider in another field, I would never want to be treated or have the experience I had at DMOS.
