Had ESWT treatment by Dr. Morin in NJ on Friday

Posted by Karen K. on 4/01/02 at 12:18 (078167)

Everything went very well. He uses the OssaTron with the help of Rhonda, the Health Tronics tech. Both Dr. Morin and Rhonda were great. I had IV sedation which I highly recommend. I didn't feel a thing. Just a little soreness for the past few days.

Too soon to tell if the procedure was successful, but I am optimistic. I've ditched the Birkenstocks. Hope to never see them again. Wearing shoes and sneakers with arch supports and stretching like crazy!

Good luck to all!

Hi Ed,
I'm from MA and drove down to NJ. My insurance did cover it but it took the whole appeal process to get it paid for.

I'm not sure of the grand total. I haven't seen any bills. The insurance company gave a special claim number and a letter I passed on to Dr. Morin's office.

The whole appeal process took about 3 months.
