Don’t believe Iowa Ortho’s generic “we strive for excellent” reviews. The DR spent virtually no time with me. He gave me a shot with no warning of potential side effects.
Which I happened to be one of the lucky ones to experience.
It was extremely worrisome since I didn’t know it could happen.
I understand that he can’t control that I had the side effects, but I was not informed of the possibility.
And I probably should have asked, but I was so taken back by the way he administered the shot and his in and out attitude Also my records have things that simply did not happen and that I was not told in them.
That’s just not right. It’s both visits that have things that didn’t happen in my records so it’s not a one time thing.
I emailed them on their portal. They asked me to call. Since then 2 emails in their portal have gone ignored for a week.
If they cared they would have answered the emails or picked up the phone to see how a patient who is still clearly in pain was doing.
They haven’t. That alone should tell you how much they care.
