I've had 2 experiences, the first being my husband who almost needed a complete knee replacement. He only met the doc before going into surgery-which we won't go into the long story where only "hard" x-rays were taken-no MRI! Finally, got an MRI & it became an emergency situation.

However, I went in for myself, again only several hard x-rays (of course on their machine-I'm still helping to pay for!)these films which mainly show the bone (which I knew my knee was not broken!) Well after a 2 hr + wait I see a assistant who say's I have a lil' arthritis, recommends shots or physical therapy. Approx. 3 mos. later my R/ knee begins giving out on me-I took several hard falls, I was also experiencing Llermittes Syndrome, which I explained these "shocks" to the assistant. Anyhow, getting back to the "falling", I called back to Treible's office & asked about if arthritis could cause the knee to just give out-as I fell 3 x's in 1 week!
I was told-"Oh yah, this could happen, but we should probably have you back & take more x-rays in the office as it's been a couple months!" I was like-"Are you kidding me!" Long story short-My neck is blown out from C2-C7-T1, w/ Llermittes, bleeding & bruising & a host of other things which appears to be due to the last major fall. I now need emergency surgery, however, they can't take a chance of me coming home & falling! So I have now sent my chart to a orthopedic who I will actually see, & I know this for sure as he saw me to evaluate my spine & cervical & spent nearly an hour w/ me. In fact, he isn't certain if my "falling" isn't directly correlated w/ my spinal injuries-but atleast I know that I now have a patient/doctor relationship where "he" will be doing what's in MY best interest.
So-Yah, I was told I'm lucking that I'm NOT in a wheel chair-after these falls with my cervical spine which is now showing bleeding & bruising from the falls!
In my opinion, Dr. Treibles office will be best suited for the socialized medicine-just around the corner-production-production!...and his relationship will be w/ the government-not w/ you! Sorry to get on such a "tangent", but I've worked closely w/ politics only in the subject of "medicine", & fighting against HMO's...& somehow, I see Dr. Treible fitting into this perfectly.
Sadly, I know awesome doctors who are their to protect the patient/doctor relationship & this kind of treatment is just plain "-ss" wrong!" and sloppy medicine just to gain a buck!

Pros: NOTHING! Except for taking your $

Cons: You NEVER see THE Dr.-/Almost became a "quad"!

I have cortesone injections in my hip for arthritis and plan to have a hip replacement soon. I've never actually met with the surgeon except in the procedure room. While I'm sure the surgeon is competent, he treats me like "just another case" and frankly I don't think he knows my name.
