I was referred to Dr. Song for carpal tunnel, by Dr. Koe, seeing me for my knee. The scheduling staff would not schedule me an appointment without a written referral by my primary or Dr. Song and an xray. Bozos! Obviously, Dr. Song does not need any new patients with excellent insurance and a valid medical issue!

I went to see Dr. Walter J. Song at Nevada Orthopedics and spine center on Wigwam with bad carpal tunnel in both hands. The pain was so bad I couldn't hardly turn a steering wheel.. He fixed both of my hands and I am now pain free I highly recommend Dr. Song.. Betty Reyes .

I couldn't even make an appointment with his staff! They instantly told me that I couldn't be helped before even trying to see what the problem was.
