Super professional top-notch doctor
The visit to the office went very smoothly.. Wait time was only minutes. Everyone was very polite and efficient.
PATIENT BEWARE of this Doctor's office, Kayal Orthopedic Center. I almost never post feedback online of any kind -- let alone negative feedback -- but I have had such a terrible experience with this office that I felt compelled to make sure that other unsuspecting patients don't fall for the same misleading and dishonest business practices that I fell for. A few months ago, upon inputting my health insurance information into Zocdoc to search for an Orthopedist, Kayal Orthopedic popped up on the list as being "In-Network" for me. Once I booked an appointment with Kayal, they called me and told me that they are actually Out-Of-Network, but that they would still take me as a patient and they would agree to just run my insurance through my Out-Of-Network benefits, and wouldn't bill me anything beyond what my In-Network co-pay was. I agreed to this, and went in to see Dr. Pope the next day. He referred me to get an MRI at the MRI place right next door to his, in the same building. I assumed that they wouldn't refer me to an MRI place KNOWING my whole situation and that I was Out-Of-Network, but about a month after getting my MRI, I received a very large bill from the MRI facility. When I called both the MRI place and Kayal Orthopedic to get this resolved, Kayal apologized profusely, acknowledged that I was "200% right," and that they would speak with the MRI facility and take care of everything for me. Well, the next month I received another bill from the MRI facility for the same amount. Obviously, it wasn't taken care of, as promised. When I called Kayal Orthopedic back (repeatedly), my calls were ignored and I was avoided for weeks. After several weeks of unsuccessful attempts, they finally called me back to let me know that they had "tried" to fix the situation, but that they were unsuccessful. Kayal has refused to follow through with their promise to take care of the MRI bill, even though I could have easily gone to an In-Network MRI facility for free. As I understand it, Kayal routinely does this to MANY of their patients, as they told me in a moment of candor that they actually make out "better" financially doing business this way. Additionally, on a clinical level, when I went back in to see Dr. Pope and review my MRI results, I asked if I could see the MRI results myself. He explained that I couldn't, as it wouldn't be understandable by a non-physician. The following month, when I took my MRI results to another doctor, they showed me my MRI on the computer screen without my even asking, and pointed out exactly what the problem area was. If you are considering an Orthopedic doctor, I would recommend that you stay away from Kayal Orthopedic Center. Josh B.
Staff was very pleasant. Dr. Pope was excellent. Very clear in his explanation of his plan for treatment. Great disposition, willing to listen.
The doctor was very pleasant and explained all needed to improve my bum knee's and hips. Went over the x ray first and should me the bone on bone areas. Explained and advised to me, if I am not in severe pain, do nothing and take Advil for pain, I explained because of my high blood pressure, I could not take a lot of Advil, so he advised me to loose the weight and walk more. I just went today, and was advised an MRI would be needed to determine how much soft tissue damage was in the knee. I very much felt comfortable after I left the office.
Zoc Doc did not work. If it is not activated to their scheduling system, then why give me the opportunity to schedule an appointment?
Dr. Pope was wonderful! Very knowledgeable and kind. The office staff was very nice as well.
He was great but they had no idea I made a appointment on ZocDoc
He was kind and informative. Explained every thing going on. Waiting room time 1hr.
Dr. Pope was awesome. I was seen right away, bright and early and wasn't rushed at all. He had awesome bedside manner, and thoroughly evaluated the issues I was having on both my hip and shoulder. By far the most comprehensive visit I've had and I'm so glad I went. Highly recommend!
Thought he was very good. Appreciated that he said to email him any concerns/problems over the weekend.
Dr. Pope's office was very nice with modern equipment. The staff called me in advance to verify my insurance information, and they saw me the same day. The doctor spent time explaining my issue, how he was treating it, and what to expect. Great service!
Very knowledgeable and pleasant. Gave me plenty of time to go over all the details and to ask questions. Very happy with him, and I will refer friends to his office.
