I don't know what happened to Darren Shapow or his Father(they were both involved in ESWT treatmment). I,too, had treatments done by them. However,mine were unsucessful.In fact, I read of your experiences before I became involved. I believe,from the results I achieved, that they were only marginally capable in this area of treatment. They were somehow associated with an orthopedic surgeon at the Century City Hospital who was probably financing them in the machine purchase. My experience with them was not satisfactory, and I would not reccomend them to any one.I believe they were quarreling or had some disagreement going on when I last had contact with them.

I had ESWT done about two weeks ago by Dr. Stephen Smith in Irvine, CA. He has done many of these and uses the Ossatron. I also consulted with Dr. Tanaka in Tustin, CA.

I realize they are not in LA, but they are within reach. Both were great. I went with Dr. Smith because he has facilities on-site and he gave me a great discount since I was referred to him from a colleague and my insurance said no to ESWT (bums) - Perhaps also because he felt sorry for me with my long history of heel pain. ]

Dr. Tanaka spent more time with me per visit than anyone else and was willing to go to battle with me over the insurance - he wrote my initial request.

My referral was from Dr. Ritchie in Los Alamitos/Seal Beach. He did surgery on my other foot two years ago, but he does not do ESWT. He is awesome. All of these doctors are specialists in podiatry.

They (Dr. Smith's office) did x-rays and ultrasound before the treatment after my free consultation. He is very experienced with ESWT and has been doing it for some time. He is in the database on this site. Phone number is 949-833-1432. Staff is really nice and helpful too.

They all get my five star recommendation. The others I visited here in OC, I will kindly not mention.

As I mentioned, it has only been two weeks, but I am doing much better. Now if I could only do something about my looks...

If anyone has been looking for me Im still alive! for those of you that are looking for me I will be checking on this site in the next week or two so that I can contact you via. I have quite busy with a new clinic...In Woodland Hills Ca. In addition I have been working with eswt in other methods for the NORLAND corperation. In defense to the other messages we have had no quarrels with the orthopedic physician who sub leases office space from us in Century City he is in no way shape or form involved with the orbasone profesionally or financialy. Our commitment to giving patients the best price and quality treatment withstands, yes it is safe to say that not all patients are appropriate canidates for this type of treatment subsiqeuntly there is only one way to find out. In my defense I believe its far better to seek remedy in all ways. In summation I would like to extend my email address to those who which to speak to me, I apologize that the old email address is no longer in use, and our phone number in century city still remains the same. Please post a message and I will contact you asap.
