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.

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!

The entire orthopedic institute is outstanding. They use the Tampa General Hospital and their infection rate is very low. I was recommended to Dr. Gutske by

Clinic where I was diagnosed. He has also operated on several of my associates and they have all had outstanding results as well.

There were 3 attempts. The first attempt failed and he went in to take it out and I got a staph infection. It took 6 weeks and then I had another surgery. It is not very good but I am living with it. I wouldn't recommend going there.

For a 15 minute office visit I was charged $ 375.00 which I thought was outrageous.The physican's billing department told me they accepted my insurance which is BCBS.As it turned out I had to pay out of paocket for the office visit.I would suggest you double check the insurnace details before hand.

She is fabulous. She listens, cares and she preforms. Surgery is a stressful time but with her she makes you feel very comfortable and her staff is very friendly and knowledgable. The individual care is fantastic. The only downside is that you may have to wait for a while on your appointment because she gives every patient the time they deserve.

Dr
Midland Hip Replacement Surgeons Provider Name Locked
was quite booked for this procedure so I had to wait 6 weeks for surgery. I am glad it happened that way because I had to time to prepare.. I attended a physical therapy appt before surgey so I could begin on my exercises before surgey. I also attended the ortho "boot camp" at Lutheran Hospital that he me prepare for what to expect.
If you have hip pain that continues to worsen, I would call and meet with Dr

He hasn't done any surgery work on me, but his bedside manner is very effective. He comes very highly recommended by couple of patients and by somebody that works with him in the operating room so that's about as good as recommendations you can get. I am going to see him again.

After they had my referral for 3 days I called to make sure they received it and was told they were waiting for my records. No one had asked me for any records!!!! Sent my release forms to have my old records faxed and waited. Called back in 2 days to see if they had received them. They told me they had and had sent everything to the doctor and would call me as soon as he decided "if he had anything to offer me". I heard nothing!!!! After ten days my husband and I showed up at 129

(their main office) and requested my records. I was given a phone extension number and told to call. (I had to ask where the phone was) The person on the phone said my records were on the doctor's desk, not in the building and she would be seeing him later, would get my records and mail them to me. Meanwhile we chose another doctor and drove over there. What a difference!!!! GO TO ASHEVILLE ORTHROPEDICS. THEY ARE WONDERFUL. I filled out a release form and they faxed it over to

for my records. Waited 2 days and then called to see if my records had been sent. No, they hadn't. (Shocked!!!) I called
Midland Hip Replacement Surgeons Provider Name Locked
to see why and was told they lost my records. "I can't send what I can't find" was their response. End of discussion. To me the entire staff and physicians were UNPROFESSIONAL, UNCARING, RUDE AND ARROGANT.
