    Gill, Dr. Thomas J.
    Excellent. I was pain free and walking within a week of the surgery. I was in severe pain prior to the surgery so I was more than thrilled witth the surgery and outcome. .

    Talmo, Dr Carl T
    Dr. Talmo did a fabulous job. He is the best in this field. He is very professional, he is not much on personality but he did answer my questions. There was not a lot of communication on the preparation phase of the surgery because it was not necessary and all the work prior to it, I did it with a physical therapist. He just needed to tell me when he could do it. The New England Baptist has a great procedure for the surgery. They have you come in ahead of time and you get all the information, not necessarily by the doctor but it is through the entire staff at the hospital. You come in two weeks early, you attend a class that tells you what is going to happen, and they check you for bacteria to see that if you are MRSA carrier, so you get the antibiotics and become free of that when you have your surgery. So I can't say enough about both the doctor and the hospital, New England Baptist. They are available when they are available; you got to book ahead.

    Tierney, Dr. John J.
    He did an excellent job on both my knee and shoulder, and he recommended me to a surgeon for my total hip replacement. In 2006, he did knee meniscus tear surgery and then two years later, he did the rotator cuff surgery. He does not do hips anymore, so he sent me to the best surgeon at Baptist which is top ten in the nation. He does an excellent job and makes me comfortable. He is a no-nonsense guy and gets right to the point. He has a good bedside manner. If I have a problem, I go to him. He treated my daughter in times she hurt herself and he took care of her. The office environment is great. He is very helpful. He is straightforward. He is different, but he is still good as far as bedside manner. If I got an appointment, I get to see him quick. He has a great personal staff. I would definitely use him again in the future.

    I think that he is extremely professional and skilled at what he does. He is very easy to work with, informative and knowledgeable. He keeps me informed as well.

    Sports Medicine North
    I have had a very good experience there. I went there for pains in my knee and had arthroscopic surgery on both knees. After that, I had a knee replacement as well. Dr. Bojan Zoric replaced my left knee and he did a wonderful job.

    Fallon Clinic
    It went well and I was satisfied until my physical therapist disagreed with his advice. Then I saw an actual orthopedic surgeon, who was wonderful and reiterated the P.A.'s diagnosis and treatment plan. I intend to go forward with his plan of injections of Euflexxa in both my knees.

    Fitz, Dr Wolfgang
    I was very pleased with my surgical outcome.  The first few weeks are always rough for this type of surgery and you have to keep up with the pain pills and follow post-surgical instructions carefully.  However, my visiting nurse and home physical therapist said of all their knee replacement patients, I was among their top two in terms of swiftness of recovery and how great my knee looked.  In fact, the physical therapist got too aggressive with me because I was doing so well, so Dr. Fitz had her stop the therapy and I simply did stretching on my own, walking as much as comfortable, and my exercise bike with no tension on the wheel.  I was able to get off the pain medication ahead of schedule and love my new knee.  My only negatives are:  because Dr. Fitz is a fabulous surgeon with a great reputation, you will wait weeks for an initial appointment.  He is worth the wait.  When you meet with him, you have to have your questions handy (I find writing them down to be helpful) as he moves quickly.  He answers patient questions fully and is warm but is swift and doesn't linger for much hand-holding so to speak.  His physician's assistant, Kelly, is wonderful, very knowledgeable and generous with her time, and the front desk people are very nice and professional.  His surgical coordinator is great.  But, there are a couple of gals who answer the phone and push the paperwork behind the scenes whose manner and helpfulness could use some sensitivity training.  For example,  I needed a couple of pages filled out by his office for Short Term Disability insurance processing and was charged $20 per page, which is fine, but whoever filled out the forms did so in a sloppy manner with barely legible handwriting.  If they're charging for the service, the paperwork should be written neatly.  And, when I had to speak with one of the gals who handle this function, her sighs and curtness did not represent Dr. Fitz' office well.  Fortunately, she and her co-worker are exceptions, not the rule.  They are the only negative in an otherwise A+ office staff and environment.  I recommend Dr. Fitz to everyone who asks me.  He did my surgery at Faulkner Hospital where he said he has the nurses and physical therapists trained to do things exactly as he wants.  The staff there speak of him like he is a god--they say he is the best.

    Most, Dr. Matthew J.
    Great service. Surgery went really well. He's very professional. He tried several non-surgical options before having to resort to surgery.

    Ayres, Dr Douglas K
    He is very personable, and he tells you what to expect. Everything seems to work fine now, so he is very effective.

    I've been going there for a couple years. Dr. Carlson is great. He's done a great job on my knees. I would recommend him to anyone.
