    First visit I had a student doctor see me first. I heard him outside the door relay everything to Dr. Urse. Then the student returned and asked a few more questions. Again I heard him relay that to the Dr. Dr Urse saw me and we had a good conversation however I was not prepared to hear I needed a Total Hip Replacement. So I did not know what questions to ask. When I went on the patient portal and read the visit summary I was surprised that it listed items that the Dr. and I never discussed as having been discussed. Second visit I waited over an hour between the waiting room and the exam room. I decided that my time was more valuable and went out and asked for my co payment back. Then Dr. Urse's MA got all excited and said she would go find the doctor right away. Too late I told her. Was told my co payment would be refunded, but when I got home there was a message from the billing office to call them back about a refund for an 'earlier' visit and a 'balance' due. Watch out for billing!

    My wife's 1st appointment, this past January of 2017 was very awkward to say the least. We were made to pay up front, nearly $200 at each appointment and an extra $50 on two separate occasions. Once for calling to reschedule and again for missing an appointment. I have united health care coverage for my entire family through my place of employment. However, because my wife had Govt. health ins. several years before our marriage, as a single, working mother of four; we were made to pay out of pocket until human services cleared any connections with my wife. To add to the absurdity of this, they had my wife sign a paper which explained that other facilities would honor our ins. without having to wait for the Gov. office to drop all ties but that they will only take self pay until all connections were severed. So during our first meeting with Dr. Laub, he explained that they DO NOT give any kind of pain injections; adding that, if he thought it was needed, we'd be sent to the hospital for that. Instead, he would be using a method of touching in various ways, ultimately alleviating any pain causing issues. Having five children at home and Dr. Laub's office being only a 5 minute drive away; we felt that as long as my wife was getting her medicine, we would be thankful. Without sounding trivial or harsh, Dr. Laub is an extremely overweight, elderly man who irritatingly wasted a substantial amount of our time ( when allotted time was exceeded an adjustment amount was demanded before exiting) with annoying witticism and rambling about aspects of his life neither of us wanted to hear. My wife felt extremely uncomfortable because his hands shook while touching her; especially after several "touching" appointments proved to be useless! His feebleness made even simple exercises such as, "push against my hand with your leg as hard as you can" a ridiculous request, even from a 120 lb lady. Most unprofessionally, however occurred recently after Dr. Laub wrote my wife a prescription increasing the mg. of a med she was already taking. Expectedly, the pharmacy notified us that our ins., needed the Dr . to give an approval, proving that the increase wasn't a mistake (understandable considering the numerous mistakes witnessed throughout our short time with Pain Alternatives, Ex. telling the girl holding the laptop, the wrong name of a medication to be prescribed that was discussed just minutes earlier; to agreeing on a follow up visit, but first needing guidance to figure out todays date and more that takes too long to write) to finish, after a week without an update or anything, we called again asking for normal compliance with the pharmacy to get the meds that Dr. Laub prescribed a week ago!! All our efforts were unsuccessful! More than once, the office staff deceptively acted as if the pharmacy was at fault for the hold on the prescription. Then they began telling us to go to a, "REAL Pain Management place" because we troubled them immensely by asking for them to comply with pharmacy protocol. Unimaginably after finally receiving a call from the office to come in and get the prescription's written approval, that is ready and waiting; I na��vely went to fetch the note again! However upon arriving, the office drama junkie, AKA Dena M Thompson, whom we'd never seen before, screams at the receptionist to slam the window shut! Reluctantly she complies, as I stand motionless in shock. Needless to say, my wife has decided never to take any medication requiring underground types again!! Also, we've realized that drug dealers come in all shapes, sizes and even in suburban Dr. offices!! Not sure about any credentials with this guy but we learned to check out our doctors before putting our lives in their hands! I'd do business with an inmate before I paid this quack again!

    The doctor was 90 minutes late on my appointment. My knee is bone on bone, and the doctor could not give me a good recommendation on which way to go. He basically told me that my job would probably fire me and left any solutions up in the air. He asked me if I could work in pain coanstantly, and didn't want to give me any medication other than Tylenol Arthritis or Advil.

    He is an Orthopedic doctor. He has nice reviews. He gave us a 7am appointment and he looked at my son's knee for 4 hours and his knee was doing badly. He took out 95cc of fluid from my son's knees. He wrapped it up and told my son not to do anything for a year. We have had follow up. He ended up going for a state tournament. He went above and beyond for him. He finally had a placard surgery. He was not afraid to think outside of the box. He savaged my son's wrestling career.

    Although I had xrays on a disk (which they told me to bring), they insisted on taking more xrays -- which they gave me a xerox copy of ($30 after insurance payment).
    Dr. Hatic screamed at me. Every time I tried to ask a question, he interrupted me and said he would deal with my questions after he'd finished giving me instruction. I kept waiting for my turn. Finally when it seemed to be my turn, I tried to describe what had gone on prior to my visit to him, because I thought he should know that I had not sought medical care very swiftly, but that I now needed to know when I was doing the right thing for my foot and when I was not. He again did something akin to screaming and told me I would not need to come back or that he didn't see people twice or something like that.
    His advice: he told me (1) to go to the drug store and buy myself some shoe inserts and (2) to do foot exercises (which his assistant would show me after he left the room) and (3) stop wearing the "boot" I had been wearing (approved by an earlier doc) along with a metatarsal pad. Any time I tried to say something about physical therapy, that is, that the foot exercises he was giving me were a type of physical therapy, he again screamed at me and interrupted me. Apparently he thought I was trying to put one over on the insurance comapny, or something. He had his own tape recorder going the entire time, held in his hand close to his mouth, apparently as a way of protecting himself against possible liability (I've never sued anybody, he need not have worried).
    Did his advice help? (1) It was, indeed, time to get rid of the boot. (2) I did work with the foot exercises and did not notice significant improvement. (3) So far, my foot is not well, and I'm thinking I should get shoe inserts with a strategically arranged metatarsal pad from someone smarter than myself, so I'm seeking an orthopedic foot doc who can create them and who will, hopefully, track my progress or lack of, to help steer me on the right course.
    My appt with Hatic was in Februrary. My foot injury was in November. I'd like to resume having healthy, happy feet. Having a doc who is both smart and caring would be great. I did not find that with Hatic.

    We took the original x-ray to the appointment, but Dr. Meschali was not satisfied with it's quality. A new one was taken in his office, and he back into the exam room and told my wife that her back was not the issue, but her hip was the problem. Surgery for full hip replacement was scheduled for some five days later.
    The surgery was successful, with no residual issues. We were given complete instructions on proper maintenance and behavior, and can truthfully say that once the surgery and some three weeks of basic rehab were completed, we had no issues whatever. In fact, only three of the prescribed pain pills were, with minimal need even those.
    Having read a review that reflected a bad experience, it seemed right to present one that exceeded all expectations.

    They have multiple offices. They were quite good when they were associated with another hospital but I don't know about being associated with Kettering. They changed their hospital affiliation which concerned me tremendously. I really liked the doctor I had for three joint replacements. Now I'm very concerned about where they practice. I got in fairly fast when I had a problem. My doctor in the group at that time practiced at Miami Valley Hospital but when they got bought out by another hospital group in the area, he had to change the hospital he practices and that was very much of a concern because he actually lost all of my medical records. The staff was very good. Their communication was good but at the time I was majorly using them, my last follow up was not quite as good. They didn't have previous records so it was pretty hard to compare something. Preciously they did pretty well with billing but the last time they had some issues. I haven't decided yet at this point whether or not to use them because I'm very concerned.

    I had several appointments with Dr. Chapman, and she tried everything in the book to help me with my problem. The last resort was orthotics and I chose not to pursue that option. She's very pleasant and listens to the patient.

    Found Far Oak Orthopedics through Angies List. Needed to have my ankle looked at because of swelling and pain. The staff is pleasant and I did not have to wait long. Dr. Welker was extremely pleasant and xrays were taken right at the office (Wilmington Pike office). After looking at the xrays, Dr. Welker gave me a few options, two of which, unfortunately, involve surgery. After having the least invasive option, which was to have a shot of cortizone in the ankle joint, swelling is down, but it is still somewhat painful and will have to see if it continues to improve. Bottom line: Doctor seems very competent, pleasant, and prompt.

    What makes Dr. Gordon special beyond all the rest as an Orthopedic Specialist?
    Doctor Gordon is a and quot;hands onand quot; physician and he can tell by the touch what is painful. He has a variety of tests he gives (and teaches the Residents) that show what strength there is in each part of the hand / wrist / elbow. But besides the normal caring medical doctor -- he truly cares about the entire person. I will give a VERY personal example below so that you understand beyond question.
    Last month I went to Dr. Gordon because I have had increased problems and pain with my right arm since I have been needing to use a wheelchair since September of 2011. The Resident worked with me for about a half hour doing the basic tests for pain and strength that he had taught them. Once they briefed Dr. Gordon, he came in and accomplished a shorter version of those tests. This shortened version was not to save time, but to insure a correct assessment.
    He then spend OVER 45 MINUTES talking with me (literally) face to face as he leaned in (since I am short and he is tall). He cared more about my over all quality of life then sending me out with a hand / arm in better shape. He begged me to find a way to get out of the wheel chair before I was stuck in it forever! He explained extensively about the neuroma in my feet (since as an M.D. he knows the entire body) and how even though the pain is excruciating, I must work through the pain in order for my feet pain to desensitize over time. Even the extra pain in my hand and arm will be over come by using the time I have to stay in a wheel chair as an exercise, rather than babying my right arm. He has given me braces (in the past) to wear at night to help aleve the pain, so using my arm during the day (while using the braces as needed) can be therapeutic.
    I suppose if I did not trust Dr. Gordon so exclusively, I might be concerned. But regardless of that, any doctor that takes 45 minutes out of a busy patient schedule (because he may not get another chance to speak with me) must care deeply about me as a person. I spent long and hard thinking about what he shared with me that day and have changed my goals in accordance with his general recommendations.
    Dr. Gordon as even keeled a doctor (let alone a surgeon) that I have EVER met in my life!!! Just before my 1st appointment with him, a VA patient was reaming him out for denying her surgery because he felt it was not in her best interest. He referred her to the Cleveland VA for a 2nd opinion. The surgery was NOT successful and maimed her arm to a degree. She attempted to blame him when he tried to shield her from this possibility. He was as calm speaking to her as if he was in a regular conversation.
    Moments later, he walked into my patient room, introduced himself, and asked how he could help me. Personally, I would have needed some time to deal with the personal / professional attack I was just under, but Dr. Gordon does not get rattled. That sounds like the kind of person I want as my surgeon. How about you?
