Centeno Shultz Clinic | Patient reported worsened cervical pain after treatment

Centeno Shultz Clinic Review

 

SCRIPT :

The Dr Centeno recommended me to take first the PRP for cervical and C1 instability and if it did not work, I should do the stem cell. I know my case is very complicated and unfortunately the PRP was really bad for me and I am now afraid of trying the stem cell in the C1 even though I do not have much options. I was very sick before the treatment due to a car accident whiplash and another prolotherapist from Fort Myers that racked my neck very badly due to poor protocol putting it in a place with unbearable pain and I do not know if any doctor will ever be able to help me now.

I was in an all vegan raw plant based based whole food diet with no cooked food before the treatment to help me control inflammation and help with the pain so I could work and drive. I made the mistake to add some cooked food as part of my diet a couple of weeks after the treatment due to corona virus lockdown and also to avoid forcing my neck so much with all the juicing . Unfortunately the PRP was too weak to cause healing, but it still created a lot of inflammation and when combined with the inflammation from my injuries and the inflammation from the change in the diet, it created a lit of new symptoms or increased substantially existing ones . It made the burning pain on my limbs, shaking in my left arm, neurological pain in my neck unbearable. Things become so bad that I could no longer drive, type, or walk more than a few feet and very strong pain on my vocal cords. The C1 instability and herniated disc on a few locations in the cervical worsened with the PRP substantially not only with more pain and shaking in my left arm, but overall feeling of paralysis on the body from c1 and a lot of difficulty to move the left arm after the treatment.

Dr Shultz gave me permanent nerve damage that I never had before. Left me so much worse than before. In pain 24 7, can’t sleep, cant walk normally because of him. And best of all he refused to help me after and denied everything. Don’t go here unless you want him to literally ruin your life.

The PRP procedure I received from this clinic ruined my life. I went in for lower back treatment, and treatment on both wrists and knees. The wrists and knees weren’t bad at all, just a bit of stretching of the ligaments from use and age (I’m 40). I was never made aware of the high risks of this procedure. They like you to believe that it is very low risk. My healing process was extremely slow, and I couldn’t walk for two months. I had extreme pain in my left knee and left wrist. Four months later, I realized that I had lost all movement in my left wrist joint. I returned to the clinic but Dr. Markle couldn’t find anything amiss with his xray. He referred me to physical therapy and an MRI. I had to pay for both of these myself. He never gave me any sort of apology or took any accountability for this result. Three months later I have regained about 50% of my wrist movement. I’m putting in a request for more PT to be approved by my insurance. The next step is surgery if I cannot regain full movement. Dr. Markle has offered to do other procedures but I have no trust in him after what I’ve gone through. I still cannot work due to my lack of wrist movement, my lower back doesn’t feel any better, and my knees become painful with any kind of exercise. I should have at least been warned of these possible outcomes, in person. Steer clear of this place. Trust me.

The National Average Cost of Stem Cell Therapy

About 1 in 10 respondents reported paying $20,000 or more, including some beyond $100,000. That’s a whopping stem cell treatment cost, especially for something most often unproven and unapproved by the FDA. If we consider these responses, the average cost may be more like $7,500-$10,000. For doctors and hospitals, stem cells are easy money, Turner said. Patients typically pay more than $700 a treatment for platelets and up to $5,000 for fat and bone marrow injections. Typical treatments involve injecting patients’ joints with their own fat or bone … While hospital-based stem cell treatments may be legal, there’s no strong … to every bit of hope you can get, even if it does cost you a lot of money.

Centeno Schultz Clinic Caught Writing Fake Reviews

According to Teresa White, The Centeno Schultz Marketing Manager, Caitlyn Talmadge and one of their doctors – Otono Silva – placed two of the 5 star reviews on this site (near the bottom). “Yelp” and “Trustpilot Regenexx” have more fair and accurate online reviews in my opinion. Read more potentially fake reviews here.

Teresa White

My experience is that with regular strains, tears, and mild arthritis they can help you. But upkeep with them is a fortune. So you’ll need to decide if paying thousands a year for upkeep is worth it. I don’t believe they care about you. If something didn’t work and you have questions and email you, they will not reply. I have experienced this first hand. If they don’t like what they see for a review, they often have it removed, even if sites claim doctors can’t do that (I guess millionaire doctors can). I have also experienced this first hand. Their fees are truly disgusting and they can take advantage of the fact that most people are unfamiliar with regenerative medicine and don’t know better about the centeno schultz clinic costs. One of the regenexx doctors (not Centeno or Schultz) even calls himself “Doctor Money” as an instagram account name. These people are greedy. The Centeno Schultz Marketing Manager, Caitlyn Talmadge and one of their doctors – Otono Silva – even placed two of the 5 star reviews on this site (near the bottom). “Yelp” and “Trustpilot Regenexx” have more fair and accurate online reviews in my opinion. There is something fishy about all of the non-stop, 5 star reviews.

They Give you Procedures Without a Diagnosis

I received 6 PRP treatments. 4 hips, 1 neck, 1 lumbar. The procedures went well and I got some relief from them albeit very short lived. I would recommend them for an issue that you are sure of having. Be sure of the issue before you go because they will not diagnose you. They will give you the treatments if you want them without them diagnosing you.
My opinion of the physician ( Dr. Musman) changed drastically many months later. After the 6 procedures, he ordered a new MRI of both hips, my back and my neck.
I was having tremendous pain in my back, hips, legs, neck and arms despite finishing the PRP procedures. I sent the MRI to the doctor and the response was that I had a tendinosis tear in my hip. Thats all that was said, even after I expressed how painful the whole area was. Many months after he told me that, two new doctors looked at the same MRI and they diagnosed that I actually had two very badly rumptured discs in my back and bony growths and a bulging disc that brought back my neck pain. My pain had been very high since the Regennex doctor ordered the MRI and “looked” at it after all the PRP procedures. The PRP had no effect on my pain. In fact it got so much worse.
It was outrageous to me that this doctor did not even mention the possibility of any problems with my discs and that it could possibly have been the cause of years of pain that was only getting worse. The doctors who viewed the MRI much later ( as my pain became unbearable) said that the disc herniations were very obvious. The whole time I should have been treating my discs in my back. I was never thoroughly examined by Regennexx nor did they ask about or order an initial MRI of my back. I feel as if I would have know long long ago and perhaps saved myself A LOT of money if they had.
I believe I had the ruptured discs for a very long time. The possibilty was not ever mentioned.
I feel as if the Regennex doctors did not do a thorough job with any diagnoses that I needed desperately. It would have been very good to know what was really wrong with me before I continued to have 6 PRP procedures at the grand total of $14,000, plus hotel stays took the grand total to almost $18,000.
If an additional MRI of my back and neck was ordered initally, I most likely would have known what was wrong. The doctor recommeded a PRP procedure on my back and neck without an MRI or x ray to view. Isnt it the doctors job to get a more solid diagnosis before recommending expensive procedures?
I really wish I had known about my ruptured discs.
The Regennex headquarters will be receiving this review because I believe I ended up a misdiagnosed victim who put trust in the doctors and procedures and ended up much poorer and with nothing to show for it.
I dont believe the PRP procedures hurt me, but I believe they basically made money off me. I got absolutely nothing out of it and now I have the terrible problem of significantly ruptured discs, am out of work without pay and I dont know if I can improve my health.
Shame on them. Very negligent. Stay far far away.
I recently learned that Dr. Musman was closing his practice and moving to the south.
Convenient. I hope people get properly diagnosed BEFORE going to Regenexx. They will just give you the procedures and take your money. I was desperate for help and I feel very taken advantaged of. Now I need treatment and possibly surgery and am $18,000 poorer.

I had stem cell treatment at a Regeneex

I had stem cell treatment at Centeno Schultz Regeneex facility in Phx in March 2019 on my shoulder and the platelets on my neck. Followed all instructions precisely. I did not get any pain relief to speak of. When I tried to schedule a 6 month checkup, I was told their office was closed and was given no way to follow up. Needless to say I am not a satisfied patient and would not recommend Regeneex to anyone. It was very expensive. There was no follow up or it seemed anyone that really cared. Judie Tilmsn

Hip procedure

At the beginning of October 2019 I had a stem cell procedure on my left hip at Centeno Schultz in lieu of more invasive surgery. Dr. Fausel and his staff in Broomfield couldn’t have more professional and perfect to work with. I have absolutely no complaints there. I was told that there was a 50% to 60% chance of success. Unfortunately, it did not work at all. In fact, my hip is worse now than when I went in. I followed all their post-op instructions to no avail and it was extremely painful for three weeks afterwards. Now, 3 1/2 months later I’m looking at surgery. The only regret I have is that it cost me $8,000 out of pocket. Again. the clinic and everyone in it were wonderful and I’m guessing that other people have had success. It just wasn’t right for my situation.

Centeno-Schultz Clinic Attacks Other Stem Cell Clinics to Gain More Business

Centeno-Schultz is not a clinic, they are a business that runs a factory like stem cell clinic. In the last year they have attacked 6 competing Clinics with negative articles on their blog. This tactic is often seen by unethical business owners who try and push out their competition and create more growth for their own business. Christopher J. Centeno, M.D is the author of the following posts below attacking their local competition.

Each of the links above lead to articles written by Dr. Centeno. Since publishing, it is safe to say that Centeno-Schultz Clinic’s sales have skyrocketed. Along with this practice they seem to be writing/buying fake Centeno Schultz reviews on Google and other platforms.

As a reader and/or potential patient, would you call this ethical behaviour from a Medical Doctor?

I wish there was two separate review segments for this office. I only saw this clinic one time. At that time I purchased in full an immobilizer brace. No paperwork was done, no waiver or other agreements, only a credit card receipt was signed. Then 1 year later I started getting bills from a collection agency, out of state of course, for the same brace, for the same amount.

The doctors here are very good. Do they sell off patient information to illegal billing practices, I cannot say, but it certainly seems this way. If you see this clinic, and I am by no means not saying don’t see these guys, I would recommend the doctors definitely, just be wary on purchasing any medical equipment from them….. Dealing with a bogus collection agency over a year after the fact, extremely infuriating- Read forward for more Centeno Schultz Reviews.
