"She is fabulous. She listens, cares and she preforms. Surgery is a stressful time but with her she makes you feel very comfortable and her staff is very friendly and knowledgable. The individual care is fantastic. The only downside is that you may have ...more to wait for a while on your appointment because she gives every patient the time they deserve."
Rated Review by Jane B.
was quite booked for this procedure so I had to wait 6 weeks for surgery. I am glad it happened that way because I had to time to prepare.. I attended a physical therapy appt before surgey so I could begin on my exercises ...more before surgey. I also attended the ortho "boot camp" at Lutheran Hospital that he me prepare for what to expect.
If you have hip pain that continues to worsen, I would call and meet with Dr
He has a very proactive approach to help improve your quality of life with the least recovery period. "

"He hasn't done any surgery work on me, but his bedside manner is very effective. He comes very highly recommended by couple of patients and by somebody that works with him in the operating room so that's about as good as recommendations you can get. I am going to see him again."
"After they had my referral for 3 days I called to make sure they received it and was told they were waiting for my records. No one had asked me for any records!!!! Sent my release forms to have my old records faxed and waited. Called back in 2 days to see if they had received them. They told me they had and had sent everything to the doctor and would ...more call me as soon as he decided "if he had anything to offer me". I heard nothing!!!! After ten days my husband and I showed up at 129
(their main office) and requested my records. I was given a phone extension number and told to call. (I had to ask where the phone was) The person on the phone said my records were on the doctor's desk, not in the building and she would be seeing him later, would get my records and mail them to me. Meanwhile we chose another doctor and drove over there. What a difference!!!! GO TO ASHEVILLE ORTHROPEDICS. THEY ARE WONDERFUL. I filled out a release form and they faxed it over to
for my records. Waited 2 days and then called to see if my records had been sent. No, they hadn't. (Shocked!!!) I called
to see why and was told they lost my records. "I can't send what I can't find" was their response. End of discussion. To me the entire staff and physicians were UNPROFESSIONAL, UNCARING, RUDE AND ARROGANT. "
replaced my left hip. He was very clear as to what the whole process would entail. He did an excellent job. I've had no pain now for four years, and best of all, he recommended that i do a hip resurfacing instead of the full replacement, plus he used the
hip product instead of the all-metal ...more product that has created huge problems and thousands of recalls. Thank you
"I got there early and got through seeing him before my appointment was supposed to start. They are a very clean clinic and are good about scheduling; they are good about getting you in on a first-come, first-served basis. The nurses are very helpful and the doctor will sit down on the chair right in front of you and ask you questions and is willing ...more to go with the flow. Whatever you want to do or are able to do he is willing to go with. He is very easy to work with. He has a male assistant and has 2 or 3 nurses that work with him; they seem to keep him pretty much on schedule so you don't wait too long in the waiting room. I have recommended him to several people. "

"He did a really good job and he takes very good care of me. He did the work in june and I was ready to work again by August. He also has great aftercare and his recommendation for P.T. was excellent. I didn't have to think and he helped me tremendously. I am normally terrified of being in the hospital. When I told him how scared I was, he ...more mentioned that this would not help me heal. He offered great advice on how to heal."
"He is an excellent doctor. He is extremely organized and knowledgable in his arena of medicine. His staff is great and very courtious. He really explains the treatment options possible to you and he even gave me photos and a manual on what to expect before and after surgery so I could be as informed as possible. He is great doctor and I have and will recommend him."
