Waited over a month. Dr didn’t listen when I explained my issues. Told me to do PT at college rec? I am having to drive 3 hrs home to see someone else who I know listens. Lack of concern and attention. Wouldn’t recommend at all.

I had a on the job injury that broken my right hip and herniated L1L2L3L5S1 disc in my back . Dr claytor frist put hardware in my hip and 6 months later my leg was 1 inch to short and the hardware came apart he never did anything to my back up today I'm still mess up. But he had to go back in my hip and he did a complete hip replacement that still not working I can't pick my leg up no high then a inch off the ground but he says he can't find anything wrong with it and as far as my back he says it not work relayed and I never had a back problem in my life . And now it's a struggle everyday to just get up and keep going . I'm not saying it all him cause I think workman comp had rhere hand in it to . But he could have talked up and said this is not going to work . I have life time medical on this hip but it want be dr Claytor doing it . He may be a good dr if it's not workman comp . But if you reading this please do some research and get a second dr to look at it just to make sure .

I met Dr. Claytor recently after being referred to him by my diabetic doctor for a knee replacement. We waited about 1 1/2 hours from our appointment time but after seeing how much time he spent with us answering ALL our questions plus explaining exactly how the knee replacement is done, I understood why the wait time. It is impossible to find a doctor that is so willing to spend as much time as you need to take care of all your fears and anxieties. Most doctors want to rush in & spend maybe 5 minutes at most with you and then they are out the door and gone. Dr. Claytor sits there, looks you in the eye and answers every question you may have. He deserves 5 GOLD stars for his patience and compassion. He is wonderful!!!! I have no hesitation about my upcoming surgery now.

I had a torn ACL in my right knee. I found that Dr. Thompson was very thorough with his assessment but felt he lacked bedside manner perhaps due to his age. He kept referring to my age (65) and how most people my age (as if I had one foot in the grave!!) did not have their ACL repaired but rehabbed it with exercise. I informed him that I was a very young active 65 yr old and I wanted the surgery!! He is a very good surgeon. Office staff not friendly and overbooked appts. No room to sit.

"Down to earth" manner makes you feel at ease. Has done 2 total knee replacements on me within a year and both have been successful. Highly recommend Dr. Atkins.

Waited two hours to be seen and he spent maybe 10 minutes with me. He expressed that he didn't really understand why I was there and without looking at any of my X-rays claimed that I do not have scoliosis. I already had been told by two previous doctors that I do and it was confirmed again this week via a cat scan. He did not examine me and was adamant that there is no scoliosis and there is nothing he can help me with. I will be seeing a different orthopedic surgeon this upcoming week.

I believe Dr. Thompson is a good doctor-I could not recommend him to anyone due to the attitude of the office. I was told by Dr. Thompson to call if ANYTHING changed before my next appointment. It did and when I called I was told I would just have to wait until Dr. Thompson returned (that would have put me waiting AT LEAST a week and a half. I have a new diagnosis of Osteonecrosis of my right knee and now both hips...my primary doctor has been the one to order the xrays and MRI's. Pain=9
