"I agree with that philosophy. He also gave me a referral for therapy if needed. I was very happy with his treatment and general approach to healing. The Sciatica" responded well to his treatment and gradually went away completely.

-Kenneth L.

"Waited for 20 minutes before being brought in by her assistant. Waiting room was dark and unattractive and looked nothing at all like what a doctor's waiting" room should look like. Receptionist was not a warm or welcoming or caring person. Only wanted to see my insurance card and coldly told me to "take a seat". Dr.'s assistant saw me first and after 5 minutes of checking the range of motion in my arm, told me to wait for Dr
. After another 10 minutes of waiting, a very unsmiling and uninvolved Dr
came in. She asked very few questions, did not explain anything to me and even when I asked her questions, she gave me very limited answers. She could not define the problem and after spending exactly 10 minutes with her (at best), gave me a list of physical therapist to see. She made a follow-up appointment with me for 2 months later. After still experiencing pain, I went back to see her and this time she spent 5 minutes with me and again did not examine me but just told me to continue with physical therapy and if the pain did not go away she would give me a cortisone shot. To this very day I still have no definitive diagnosis as to what my problem is with my shoulder and am forced to make arrangements to see another Orthopedist, hopefully one who actually takes the time to help me.

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

Chuck Clifford came to lying 
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 
his neck and came within about 
a millimeter of completely severing 
his spinal cord.

Besides cortisone shots, other treatments for shoulder pain are available, including anti-inflammatory medication and physical therapy, says Frisella. (Photo by Kiel Hauck)

Inflammation is the root cause of many problems that affect the shoulder while resting. Inflammation can result from several different underlying problems.

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.

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!

Orthopedic Care reviews in Durham

Treatment: As I had already tried anti-inflammatory meds and muscle relaxers, Dr
Durham Orthopedic Surgeons Provider Name Locked
recommended a cortisone / Novocaine injection. It took a couple days but it worked and I haven't had any difficulties since that time.
Billing: My only critcism is how they billed the service, which they are well within their rights to do. However I'm having to pay out of pocket an unexpected amount (beyond the copay) because they billed the injection as "outpatient surgery". Had I been numbed up and cut in anyway, I'd agree with the treatment code. However I'm having trouble seeing how getting a shot qualifies as surgery in any way.
Regardless, I would absolutely return to him should I need treatment.

My wife was referred to Dr
Durham Orthopedic Surgeons Provider Name Locked
after having spent 15 months struggling with an arthritic shoulder. She was in constant pain and was unable to use her right arm. None of the more conservative treatments for her condition had proved effective. After evaluating her situation, Dr
Durham Orthopedic Surgeons Provider Name Locked
recommended a total shoulder replacement. His evaluation was thorough, professional and compassionate. Even though the prospect of a joint replacement was daunting, we had complete faith that she was in very competent, capable hands. He performed the surgery on her right shoulder in November 2014.

We have nothing but praise for Dr
Durham Orthopedic Surgeons Provider Name Locked
. My wife's entire course of treatment from the surgery through the follow up appointments, has simply been the best. Thanks to his superb surgical skills and post-operation supervision, She is well on the way to recovering full motion and strength in her shoulder. She has no joint pain whatsoever. She considers her new shoulder a work of art and it has given her a new lease on life.

It’s a very difficult kind of deal, but he did an excellent job. His office staff was all very good. They told me everything I needed to know and they prepared me properly for the operation. He was there after the operation and talked to me about it and I when I went in to see him, he explained everything again to me.

My body got crushed by a 1900lb box. The results were a broken color bone, broken ribs and a very bad crushed pelvis.
Thanks to the Branchville Rescue squad, Morristown hospital and especially Dr
Durham Orthopedic Surgeons Provider Name Locked
that I survived this accident and I'm able to walk pretty much without any major problems, still have a torn rotatator cuff what was detected too late to get fixed and after 5 years I still have a drop foot from the accident, but it could have been worse, I could be dead. Dr
Durham Orthopedic Surgeons Provider Name Locked
did a great job screwing my pelvis back together, and gave me the gift to be able to walk again.
Dr
Durham Orthopedic Surgeons Provider Name Locked
was not part of my insurance but even after the 90 days I was allowed to see him for follow ups, he did not charge me for the additional visits. He didn't care about the money in this case, he wanted to see me walking again and that shows me that he really cares about his patients.
Dr
Durham Orthopedic Surgeons Provider Name Locked
is a very down to earth doctor, he has a very good sense of humor and he knows what he's doing. I can only recommend him and his team

He is an excellent surgeon with an outstanding bedside manner and an excellent reputation in the medical community. The surgery went well and when it is time for the other knee we will use him again. |I did not comment on price as I have no idea what to compare it to.

He is a really good doctor. He is highly recommenced. He is very good with his clientele follow up. They are very good with appointments. If there are questions they get right back to me. He is good with being there at the time given, unless he has an emergency surgery, with is understandable.

The customer service was good. The atmosphere of the office was good. I did see Dr.
Durham Orthopedic Surgeons Provider Name Locked
and he was very professional and I liked him. He was very knowledgeable. One thing I noticed about his work based from my experience was that he was true and that his nurse was nice. The nurse was very prompt in taking care of things. I will go back in March.

He had to get information from another doctor about my case and that took a while to do that.

I could not even make an appointment. They were too worried about how they would get paid and won't treat people who were injured in car wrecks no longer how long ago the accident occurred. I stated I could pay cash and that it would not be a problem. I called a lawyer.
