"Waited 60 mins for this visit in the waiting room. Had completed all my required paperwork online but when I arrived the paperwork was "never received and we can't get to" it because of our new system, so you need to redo it.". I was somewhat surprised with the secretary's abrupt and hasty way of addressing this issue. I was never addressed by name except when the door to the "inner office" was opened and my name was called. My initial visit lacked personability, respect, and a sense of genuine gratitude for having selected this practice, which is highly respected in the medical community and highly recommended by many people. I was very surprised by this first 60 minutes. I realize glass sliders may keep the discussions to a minimum, but it still represents a cold sterile mileau and sends a message of "don't bother us". When this is combined with unfriendly staff, there is clearly a reason for pause. As soon as I was called to my room, a staff member (not sure of name or type of employee) asked me to come to xray, where several different position xrays were taken. This individual was very open and friendly and escourted me back to the office, where I waited an additional 15. My history and symptoms were recorded by a third individual who also didn't introduce herself. Then, 15 mins later a physician came in, ask me the same questions, flexed my knee while on an exam table, and located my pain. He asked if the pain were in another location and explained I had serious arthrititis in my knees and could benefit very much from knee replacement surgery on both knees, but that he would need an MRI to confirm. The entire visit and exam with the Dr lasted approximately 10 mins. I did follow up with the MRI and had a second visit to obtain the results. The date I was scheduled to return to pick up the information was not clear. I was told verbally one day and my scheduled paper was for this date, but when I arrived I was told I was wrong and that my appointment was a week later. I was extremely frustrated and explained this to the same cleck behind the glass slider. Again, never addressed me by name, and never apologized for the inconvenience of rescheduling my work for the appoitnment. Most disconcerting was this
who actually looked away and talked on the phone as I was trying to communicate with her. I did return one week later to receive the results. This appointment waiting period was much less (about 30mins, a 50% improvement) and the doctor saw me within 5 mins of going tothe inner office. This time the physician sat down and explained how seriously bad the arthritis was and the surgery was the best option. If I did not agree surgery, he could offer injections. I declined treatment and sought another orthopedic opinion. No doubt this practice has
physicians, but they seem to tolerate a poorly managed office staff who are not personable and come up short on communication skills. About one month letter a received a "template" apology letter, that still failed to use my name individually. Surely after 2 visits and an MRI in their center, they should have my name, particularly in light of all my insurance information. It seems the strengths of this practice include the education and expertise of the physicians, which have impressed many people. I regret that this didn't work out for me, but perhaps another time.

"Dr.
performed two arthroscopic knee surgeries (one on each knee) over a 6 week period. He is a skilled professional doctor with excellent communication skills." When I leave his office, I feel "cared for." A+++ on the bedside manner. The first surgery was perfect with a really fast recovery -- apparently this was not usual, because it's been six weeks since the second surgery and I'm not healing so quickly, but there was a lot more extensive damage in the second knee so I am going to trust that it will heal in time. He did not refer me for post-surgical physical therapy on either knee, so if you are not motivated to do your own exercises, be sure to ask for PT. His nurse
is also super nice and returns phone calls quickly. He's pretty young (maybe in his early to mid 30s?) so don't feel worried that he doesn't have enough experience ... he did a great job for me and I was really happy with him.

"I chose to go to Great
Orthopaedics because I had seen a doctor there before that I really liked, but he no longer works there. They scheduled me for Dr.
" instead. I waited for about 20 minutes before I was seen. My knee was first x-rayed and then I was put into a very nice exam room. I waited in there for about 15 more minutes before the doctor came in. He asked me how my knee hurt, and I explained. The first thing he told me was that I should probably look into gastric bypass or lapband surgery to
weight. !!!!!! He didn't ask me anything about my weight or any treatment I've received for my weight, just dove into the weight loss surgery realm. Had he asked anything, he would have found out I was currently seeing 2 specialist, and they both told me I was not a candidate for weight loss surgery because I don't eat anything as it is. So, from the start, I was extremely put off by him. After telling me I needed weight loss surgery, he proceeded to talk directly to his nurse, who was typing in everything he said onto a computer. He then said I needed physical therapy and gave me a prescription for Ibuprofen, then left. I felt like a hit & run victim. Despite my good experience with a previous doctor, I will never return to this facility regardless of what doctor I see. I was extremely unhappy with my experience with Dr.

Orthopedics: Knees

Some orthopedic doctors specialize in the bones, muscles and tendons of the knee, from treating ACL tears and arthritis to performing knee replacement surgery.

Does being overweight put you at higher risk of knee replacement surgery? Yes, but a small increase in activity and decrease in weight can make a difference.

As differences between men and women's knees are better understood, effective treatments can be targeted specific to women with knee pain, says Closkey. (Photo by Karen Geswein)

Sounds like you should be pursuing a disability claim.  Also, you could speak to your previous doctor frankly about your concerns.  
Have they made orthotics for your shoes that distribute your weight better?

I didn't feel he was terribly interested in me. He automatically gave me a shot to treat the pain, but it did not work. It wasn't until a couple weeks later that I went back to him, and the problem was finally solved because he massaged the painful area. He only spent about 3 minutes with me each visit. I didn't like the fact that he just immediately gave me a shot.

I did not fill out the price category because it was covered by my insurance. I have never had a problem with them. I was able to schedule my own surgery when I wanted it, once the insurance approved it. They were quick to get me in. I did have to wait once, but it was because the doctor was caught up in surgery. Everyone on the staff was professional, easy to work with, and receptive. My doctor even provided a follow-up call with me. I would definitely go back in the future and recommend them to others.
