This site claims that patients receive immediate relief from chronic pain with one injection of their treatment < edited >
I was desperate for relief, and since they too are in L.A. I decided to check it out.
When you get there, you are put in a room to watch a video, which is just a repeat of the videos embedded on their site. You will then be interviewed by the Dr. who will refuse to answer any of your question unless you opt for a "Medical Examination" for $300. The "Medical Examination" takes about 5 minutes, and at that point, and that point only your questions will be answered. The injection is $4200 (making the visit $4500 out of pocket for the day).
I was told that my insurance -should- reimburse me for this expense, and of course it did not. I felt nothing after the injection that day. The follwing day I did feel slight relief, that only lasted a couple of days. Upon my follow up visit, I was offered a second shot, at a discount. I opted out of it.
Save your time, and especially your money, and watch out for this scam. Its an easy trap to fall into when you are beaten down by chronic pain to the point where you will spend thousands for relief. You will definitely spend thousands, but that will be the end of it.
