Orthopedic reviews in Montgomery

    I came to this office because it's close to me and in network for my insurance. I saw Dr. Barton R. Branam, Getting an appointment and the wait was average, the doctor was fine. He recommend I see a PT who happened to be next door. He also had x-rays of my knee there at the office before he actually saw me. My complaint is that I was charged $650 'hospital charges' for the 3 in-office x-rays. This is outrageous and was not mentioned to me when I arrived in the office, or otherwise I would've refused. I've been to several orthopedic doctors (myself or with my children) and the in-office x-rays were included in the visit. If they were not, they didn't cost 3 times the cost of the doctor's visit! I will never go to another UC physicians location or provider again. I applied for financial aid to the hospital because this is an unexpected and costly expense. I was denied, although I have two kids and earn less 40k a year. Whenever I go to a doctor's office now find myself asking, 'what are the hidden or extra charges' because of this event. When I went next store to the PT to make my appointment, I asked them to make sure they confirm with my insurance what will be paid. When I came back for my appointment they claimed they didn't know what it would cost me so I left. The PT later called me back and told me how much the visit would cost and I did go there. Overall this situation has caused me stress and disappointment and I won't return or recommend this building or anybody in it.

    I had consulted with two other ortho docs before going to Dr. Kirk.  I had been told by one that I was not a candidate for the anterior approach hip replacement although I think he told me that because he was not trained in the technique.  I searched online for ortho docs trained in the technique because of the shorter recovery time it offered.  I found Dr. Kirk.  I also started talking to people and everyone I spoke to who had hip replacement by Dr. Kirk had a stellar experience and recovery.  Someone from Cincinnati who had gone to the Cleveland Clinic for hip replacement was asked by the staff there why he came to them when "the best in the state is in Cincinnati; Dr. Patrick Kirk."

    At my first visit I expressed concern that my case might be a challenge because of the coxa vera of the hip (the birth defect).  Dr. Kirk was confident that everything would go smoothly and that he could perform the anterior approach surgery.  He told me to just call to schedule the surgery when I couldn't stand it anymore (the pain and limitations).  It took about 8 more months before I reached that point.  It wasn't just the pain and limitations anymore.  It was depression and loss of hope.  I had a steroid injection in the hip and for a short while was pain free and realized then that I HAD to just do it.  Surgery is a scary thing but I had no choice.

    But back to the overall experience.  The office staff is impeccable and the wait when you see Dr. Kirk is very reasonable.  A salute to good scheduling.  To prepare for the surgery Dr. Kirk has a printed booklet that pretty much answers every question you could possibly have.  I liked that he believed in vitamin supplementation in the weeks leading up to and after the surgery (iron, vitamin C) and he supported physical therapy after surgery when you go home.  Not something to be taken for granted because not all surgeons do that.  The surgery was at Christ Hospital (a nationally rated top regional hospital).  I think Christ is the only hospital regionally that has the special table to perform the anterior approach surgery also.  The surgery went well and I was told it only took about 45 minutes.  Something else to credit because studies have found that the risk of infection goes up the longer you're open in the OR.  They did a nerve block prior to the surgery which reduced the need for anesthesia and I was not even intubated.  And I required no blood transfusions.  Pain management, patient care, the room, the physical and occupational therapy at Christ was excellent.  The nurses were wonderful (salute to Michelle, the night nurse).  I was in the hospital 2 nights.  I had no post surgical complications such as infection.  I did several weeks of home physical therapy and then several more of outpatient.  At my 6 week post op apt with Dr Kirk I felt GREAT.  My SI joint was still hurting and I was concerned with that but Dr. Kirk thought it would get better.  My leg length discrepancy of nearly 2 inches was corrected by the hip replacement so my body had some adjustments to get used to.  Sure enough, by 8 weeks post op the SI joint pain was gone. The one 5 inch incision healed wonderfully and is a faint red line at this point. 

    My life has been changed by the surgery.  I have hope and can once again do the things I love to do. I went on a hiking trip 4 months post-op. I have such respect, admiration and gratitude for Dr. Kirk and all the other specialists who made my surgery a success.  If you are considering joint replacement don't just chose a doctor and hospital because they are convenient.  Talk to people who have had the surgery.  Are they somewhat satisfied or thrilled with their results?  Did they get an infection?  Did their surgeon believe in pre- and post- operative support?  I saw two other surgeons before choosing Dr. Kirk.  The details do matter and stellar (not lukewarm) recommendations matter.  I give Dr. Kirk, his staff, the myriad of other specialists involved and Christ Hospital a stellar endorsement.

    It was a great visit. I was taken on time and moved through the whole process very quickly. They took X rays and diagnosed me very quickly. I was given a cortisone shot on the spot by the doctor. He answered all of my questions and I left feeling much better. I would return again if I have any hand/wrist problems.

    I have been many times to Dr. Galloway, so I will give a typical appointment. An assistant takes X-rays upon arrival so they are ready for Dr. Galloway. He comes in and talks for a while to get all of the specifics on what has been going on with your knee. He does a lot of physical manipulation and comes up with a plan. Sometimes includes exercises, cortizone shots, or surgery.

    Surgery was scheduled and had a great experience. Explained everything and answered all questions before and after, also with follow up until my elbow was as good as new. The only real drawback is promptness in being seen at appointment time.

    Actually a family member of mine is a physical therapist in the region and suggested I go to Dr. Foad for a cyst on my wrist. It was simple to make an appointment though it took a couple of weeks to get me in with my work schedule and I had to go up to Sharonville which with rush hour traffic was tough. They were running way behind schedule which was fine but I wished the office had called me to let me know so I didn't rush out of work and have road rage on my way to get to my appointment on time. When I did get to see Dr. Foad and this staff, they were efficient, comprehensive, and did a great job of evaluating my cyst, determining the proper treatment, and documenting my needs and concerns. I was able to get my surgery scheduled at that time without trouble. The organization has worked well with my insurance to date.

    Dr. Andrews has several offices in the area. She is an excellent doctor, with an excellent reputation. She specializes in knees and shoulders, and her office is always very accommodating. She is another warm personable doctor. I would give her all A's!

    Performed carpel and capital tunnel release surgery. Prior office visit was complete and informative. Great concern over symptoms and possible treatments. Very good explaining possibilities both pro and cons. Very happy with outcome. Easy procedure and little to no pain. Next surgery on other arm is in 2 weeks. Highly recommend him to anyone needing this type surgery.

    I think Dr. Noyes is regarded as one of the top doctors in the United States. I had a terrible complication after surgery a few years ago and he has been the only doctor who has been able to help me. He didn't shrug me off and he has had the expertise to help me.

    He is an incredible doctor and has been working with my daughter for 6 years; he is wonderful. He is a true human being and is so kind; he is not judgmental and is also brilliant; he really knows what he is doing. He is a specialist for legs but understands the entire body. If he can't help you he guides you to someone else and for us he has always been right.
