Iowa Ortho – Legit or Scam?

I came across a critical review of Iowa Ortho on a Scam Reporting website –, titled ‘Ignored For A Week’.

DirtyScam allows anonymous submission of complaints from angry consumers and victims of scams. Since the website is hosted offshore (probably in Russia or India), we take this (negative) review against Iowa Ortho with a pinch of salt.

Here is what the review says –


Don’t believe Iowa Ortho’s generic “we strive for excellent” reviews. The DR spent virtually no time with me. He gave me a shot with no warning of potential side effects.Which I happened to be one of the lucky ones to experience.It was extremely worrisome since I didn’t know it could happen.I understand that he can’t control that I had the side effects, but I was not informed of the possibility.And I probably should have asked, but I was so taken back by the way he administered the shot and his in and out attitude Also my records have things that simply did not happen and that I was not told in them.That’s just not right. It’s both visits that have things that didn’t happen in my records so it’s not a one time thing.I emailed them on their portal. They asked me to call. Since then 2 emails in their portal have gone ignored for a week.If they cared they would have answered the emails or picked up the phone to see how a patient who is still clearly in pain was doing.They haven’t. That alone should tell you how much they care.
