I had Bethany Dotson as my Patient Care Manager. She had informed me that I would have a $150 copay for my back surgery and then later on I would receive a bill for the Anesthesiologist. I asked her to give me an idea of the cost and when I said "would it be around a $1, 000" her reply to me was no it would not be nearly that much and would be around a few hundred dollars. On 2/14/19 I had my laser back surgery and prior to the surgery I paid my $150 copay. On 9/26/19 (over 7 months after my surgery) I received a bill from Grand Canyon Anesthesia for $2, 721.08. This is what they are saying I owe after Aetna paid $2, 153.92. When I received this invoice I tried to contact Bethany Dotson and her phone number was no longer in service. I had also been working some with Meredith Oberlander and her phone number was also not in service. Every phone number I tried for North American Spine Institute for their employees that I had worked with was no longer a valid phone number. I have also tried Grand Canyon Anesthesia to see why the bill is so high and why I am receiving it over 7 months after my surgery. Aetna had made a payment to them on 4/10/19. Nobody answered the phone so I have left a voice mail. This is not how North American Spine Institute should conduct themselves. My email address is monica.[protected]@yahoo.com.

To all this might help. I had surgery done at North American spine may 2015 cane home and felt great for two weeks. Then my pain came back with a vengeance. Please consider carefully before you decide to have anything done. Now have to be tested for nerve damage due to my doctors request after he said my feet were not moving correctly.

For those having successful or non-successful surgeries with NAS (Dallas only, please), will you please update your post to let others know if you still feel the same as you did when you posted the initial comments? I am researching to find the best "fit" for my problem (3 lumbar disc bulges, arthritis - would get the Accurascope procedure) and so far it is NAS in Dallas. A lot of the complaints are for the Dayton NAS or regarding Dr. Rothstein, who can no longer practice in the U.S. and is currently overseas. Please update your blogs so those searching today can have your current view on your procedure. Thank you all for your time. Have a great holiday weekend! God bless you and your family.

My husband still has spinal stenosis, although he was treated in dayton. Oh. The mri 7 months after the...
stay away from all the promises they make in their commercials. do your home work. check the internet, ask your doctor, talk to ex patients !
unfortunately it is too late for a family member. he ended up in a wheelchair. no spinal cleaning...just 2 cut off nerves..the spinal stenosis is still there..
the result: a life without any quality. he WAS able to walk BEFORE the accura scope treatment!!!
we would love to hear any experience.
First off let me speak from experience. I did elect to undergo the Accurascope procedure (in Dallas and YES they do have litigations against that facility as well. Problem is their tort reform doesn't allow us to see when the litigations occurred). I am embarrassed to say that I fell for the whole "marketing" ploy the company employs to convince its prospects to buy in. After all, when one is constantly in pain any solution becomes of interest. I work in a related field and understand the physiology of the spinal column. I asked several times prior to the incident how they would manuver their scope around the S1 nerve to get to the level of my issue. I was told by the woman who answered the phone, the woman who took my credit card info and the Dr. himself several times "we have you on fluro x-ray and the scope has a camera on it as well. If we come close to a nerve we slowly back out and go around." Also, beware of the company's animation. The animation of the procedure makes it look like there is enough room to drive a bus through that space. Again, not true. Go to a "Body Worlds" expo and see for yourself. I've had the opportunity to actually see a cadaver so I know that the space is very tight. Now I am dealing with TEXAS where trying to sue for anything at all is almost impossible. You will find that many doctors because of how the laws protect them and not the patients open up their practices there. REMEMBER, MEDICINE IS A PRACTICE. DON'T LET NAS PRACTICE ON YOU! IF SOMEONE RESPONDS TO THIS POST IN A NEGATIVE WAY YOU CAN BE ASSURED THAT THEY ARE PROBABLY CONNECTED TO THESE RUTHLESS INDIVIDUALS. IF YOU ELECT FOR A BACK SURGERY PLEASE SEEK A STATE THAT PROTECTS YOUR WELL-BEING AND NOT THE PRACTITIONER'S.
