Before You Choose To See Dr. Centeno: Read The Reviews
Below are (3) Google Reviews of Christopher J Centeno MD’s Stem Cell Clinic. Their staff did not respond to any of these. Many of their 5 Star reviews seem to be fake or paid for. Does this seem like an ethical business? You decide.
They get zero stars but you have to leave one to leave a review
I found Centeno but be more concerned with making money versus doing the right thing. I saw Dr. Christopher J Centeno MD a few months ago. They first of all charged my insurance $1900 for a 45 minute visit, I have to pay $500 of that. Then, well of course they can help me with my knee, as well as my ankle. After I got an MRI they wanted to charge me again for MY test results. I have NEVER had a doctor charge me for MY test results.
Because of the billing fees, I got a second opinion from a well known ortho group in the Denver area, who is known doing stem cell as well. They said it would be a total waste to do stem cell on my knee because it is so torn up from sports and life that treatment would give me a couple of months of pain relief at best. But Centeno assured me they could help, no conversation of surgery, for the cost of $6500 to $7500ish.
Just to shut down the thought process that the ortho I saw, who said do surgery versus stem cell, I wouldn’t be able tuo use then for surgery because of my insurance, so they had nothing to gain by telling me to not do Stem cell.
I strongly suggest getting second opinions before letting Centeno do anything to you!!! They will take your money but after that no guarantees. Many of the reviews comment on a rude staff, I would call them more robot like, they aren’t in it for good bed side manners or true patient care. – Read more Centeno Schultz reviews on Google.
