Couldn't Figure Out Simple Shoulder Issue
Dr. Blecher seems like a nice guy. But i went in with horrible shoulder pain. many x-rays later - he had no diagnosis. and could not tell me what was wrong. But that a cortisone shot and physical therapy is my path. As soon as the shot wore off (3 months) my shoulder was worse. The PT damaged my shoulder - the pain of the exercises was masked by the shot. I was referred to Myoskeletal Alignment - and it took 3 sessions (and no PT) to figure out and solve the problem. My shoulder pain went from a constant 7 or 8...to a 0 within a month. This is not an ad for a myoskeletal specialist. Just a reminder that modern day Dr's are part of a rote system developed my the military. They typically have huge egos about their knowledge - and zero creativity. How can someone with all this medical training not figure out that i had a ligament crossing muscles that was causing the pain? Gentle manipulation solved it - no surgery or invasive procedures needed

Dr. Blecher is a young, progressive and modern physician. Vastly knowledgeable of cutting edge procedures and skilled in using them. I have been truly impressed with Dr. Blecher's expertise and his recommendation of using Euflexxa injections in my arthritic hip. It has made a tremendous difference in my mobility and pain management.

Price Gouging Consultation with Dr. Andrew Blecher
Beware of any of these doctors who use industry nicknames like Dr. Andrew Blecher, "The Jock Doc" How does this sound to you.... I saw Dr. Andrew Blecher at UCLA Medical Center in Van Nuys, CA. This was only an initial consultation for Regenexx PRP treatment for my shoulder. Dr. Blecher examined me for about 20 minutes. And how much did they charge me just for this consultation? $1895 total!!!! And $998 my responsibility after insurance. And what did they charge me for? See for yourself: $660 for Ultrasound on my shoulders $150 for 1 shoulder X-Ray $1085 for "Office Visit" And how much would the actual PRP treatment cost? A mere $1300. After this so-called "consultation" at this so-called UCLA "Medical Center", I couldn't even afford the treatment. BEWARE of UCLA Medical Center, Dr. Andrew Blecher, and any medical establishment in the dystopian city of Los Angeles. They charge excessively and refuse to listen to customers' concerns.

Accustomed to being quite active I was slowed down and in pain when I arrived at SCOI. I previously had X-rays taken which showed considerable arthritis in both knees. I worried that the only remedy for my painful arthritic left knee was surgery. Dr Blecher extracted a significant amount of fluid from my very swollen knee and then injected the first of three hyaluronic doses. It is more than a month since my last injection and I can say that my overall improvement is in the area of 80%. As further advised by Dr. Blecher I will continue to do my part incorporating more strengthening exercises into my regimen and avoiding pounding on the treadmill. I am hopeful that recovery will continue but I am prepared to repeat the procedure if necessary. It was relatively painless in comparison to the constant nagging pain that I was experiencing. Dr. Blecher’s assistants were as friendly and reassuring as he was and my experience at the office was excellent. Thank you!

After doing my own research for pain i was having in myy hip and knee. I came across Dr. Blecher. What i thought was a groin pull and self treatment for months, and little success. Dr. Blecher diagnosed the issues (not groin) and put me on a treatment plan which has been a game changer. I've dealt with some medical professionals in the past where the first discussions after diagnosis is surgery. Dr. Blecher was the opposite...everything but surgery to give relief until all other treatments are exhausted. Very much appreciated. Explains each step, what to expect and why. Couldn't be happier. Great staff and excellent treatment, follow up and care. Dr. Blecher will always be my go to!

I've seen Dr. Blecher for hip, ankle, and shoulder injuries from my mountain biking and snowboarding crashes. He always focuses in on the factual diagnosis, and suggests and performs treatments and/or therapy to get me back in action quickly. I've sent my wife and kids and friends to him too and they are all happy with his friendliness and results.
