the company itself is a scam. yes they have "doctors" but the doctors do not go to a fellowship to be certified spine surgeon. they do their training for the procedure by dr. st louis himself, at the tampa facility. they just opened the facility in PA.
they have beautiful offices, nice decor, breakfast and lunch provided for the patients - big deal.
please do your homework, please know that it is a numbers game. the big wigs all bonus when they hit the magical monthly number.
you see a doctor, he gives you his opinion and then you are led to the "patient coordinator". that is where the number game begins. this is where the patient coordinator gives you their price of a whopping $30k, because after you add in the surgery center, anesthesia, doctors fee, nursing staff, supplies, bandages, blah blah they actually bill out over $60-$80 to the insurance. So your $30k pays them and they still collect from the insurance.
patients after surgery could experience problems, and they are given an 800 number to call, which is routed to the "tampa" office. and most of the time you dont' get a prompt call back, that is why they tell you to go to the emergency room if you are not feeling right.
the doctor who did your surgery, you won't even see him at the post operative appointment. you see a nurse if you are lucky, otherwise you see the MA.
they have you sign the longest form ever indicating if you get money from your insurance, that you will sign it over to them and not keep it.
none of the doctors are board certified. as a matter of fact, this procedure that they do, is involved in a lawsuit in florida, because dr. st louis, stole the idea from his former employer who was a real spine surgeon. that should tell you something.
good luck and read, read read. there are far better choices for care, that actually do care.
