Hi everyone, I am new to this. My husband is getting ready to have a 4-way ADR at ProSpine in May. We have to wire a ton of money to a third party, C.C. Cursan Consulting, in Greece. Seems very odd. Has anyone done this? I would like to think ProSpine is reliable, honest and above board. But, one never knows.

Also, does anyone out there have recent experience with a 4-way ADR for the neck?

thanks

Cathy, I will be waiting for this answer too, as I am planning to do my wire transfer tomorrow morning for April surgery with Dr. B! (I got the same address in Cyprus....can't imagine it's not legitimate)

that is normal C.C. Cursan Consulting is whom dr. b uses.
do yourself a favor and open a account at www.xe.com. for the wire transfer you will save alot of money over using your bank.

I concur with Chuck. I also thought that Cyprus was potentially suspicious, but it is 100% legit.

(in the end, when the surgery ended up costing a bit less than I had wired, they even wired the difference back into my account)

Chuck, thanks for the tip. I'm just not savvy with that stuff...I probably couldn't figure it out anyway. I know I'll end up going to the bank to do the wire transfer and be done with it. Days are dragging by in anticipation of my surgery...it can't come too soon. I have another question, but I think I'm supposed to post it in a different thread.
