I really wish the pricing was discussed with me before the procedure. I was not expecting a $700 procedure and did not even imagine it would be that much (as a prior surgery with anesthesia cost less). I also felt like the follow up appointment was unnecessary. There wasn't anything done during that appointment that couldn't have been discussed over a quick 3 minute phone call. It was less than 15 minutes and I have to pay over $150 for it. Additionally, when they called to check in on me after the procedure, I had two concerns, one about billing and one about a symptom. They said they'd have people call me about both those things. Only the billing person reached out to me. It made me feel like all they cared about was money, and my actual progress and health concerns were not important.

Dr. Desai has been very good about reviewing my pain syndrome situation CRPS or CRPS-like affecting right foot), laying out various different options, starting with the easiest to try and then more extensive treatments as well. Seems to be very knowledgeable and speaks directly about the prospects for each treatment to work.
