Review of Dr. Rao

- in Rio Rico |

Dr. Rao is knowledgeable, skilled, experienced, and explains what you need to know in detail. My hand surgery for Depuytren's Contracture resulted in very little pain afterward and greatly improved my hand function.

Review of Dr. Dixon

- in tucson, |

I am a patient of record. I saw Dr. Dixon many times over a few years. He said at some time I would need a knee replacement. Well, now it is time and he won't see me. I had surgery for a torn meniscus ( both knees - still having problems - he wants me to go back to that doctor). I could not get in to see him for 3 months when I first had the meniscus problem, so I went with the first doctor who could see me. Obviously this man does not care about his patients.

Review of Dr. Dixon

- in Tucson, AZ |

STELLAR SURGEON & EVEN BETTER HUMAN BEING! Dr. Dixon saved my husband's leg...and almost certainly also his not giving up when presented with a very challenging situation. My husband's artificial hip, put in about 10 years prior, developed some weird infection that no other dr. could figure out. Dr. Dixon immediately devoted himself to the issue~~due to his expertise and his compassion, he did what other ortho surgeons had given up on!

Review of Dr. Steck

-Tucson, AZ |

Dr. Steck seemed very nice BUT after supposedly fixing my foot problems and I kept going back telling him there was something seriously wrong because I was in more pain than before seeing him, he just kept saying there was nothing wrong and I should give it time. He said 6 months to recoup - it's been two years and the pain just keeps getting worse. I saw another podiatric surgeon who told me what the problems were and why - something he did and they were amazed he didn't warn me ahead of time.

Review of Dr. Steck

- in Green Valley |

I have been a patient of Dr.Steck for over 2 years. I have Charcot which destroyed my mid foot and ankle bone. Another surgeon rebuilt my mid foot and Dr. Steck rebuilt my ankle. He is knowledge and caring. There is often a long wait to see him but that's because he takes his time with his patients. He always made sure I understood the current issues. He also has a good sense of humor. I'd recommend him to anyone.

Review of Dr. Bradbury III

- in Marana AZ |

In 2014 i needed knee surgery. I hurt my knee while I was out hunting. I had damage to the meniscus in my right knee. After meeting with Dr. Bradbury he explained to me what needed to be done to fix the problem with with my knee. Explain to me how the surgery was going to go and what the procedures were. I had my surgery and came out of recovery good. I had very minimum pain and was up walking in seven days. Now in 2017 the same surgery on left knee. And same results. Thank you Art Wasserman

Review of Dr. Wood

-Tucson, AZ |

I have a problem with my leg, right below the know. Dr Word fixated on my knee saying I had arthritis in it. He said I would need surgery soon. I told him that wasn't what was hurting and he totally ignored me and talked about the knee. Will not go back

Review of Dr. Rao

- in Green Valley, AZ |

Dr Lacey Rao did a beautiful job on my carpal tunnel operation! She explained the procedure and performed it on time at the hospital and left no scars or nerve sensations! She is caring and understanding of her patients! I would highly recommend her to anyone! R Faut Gv

Review of Dr. Kersey

-Gold Canyon, AZ |

I've been seen twice by both Kersey and Dr. Wood. While I like both physicians the rude and condescending attitude of the office staff has forced me to choose another physician for future visits. I the office manager contact me because one of the staff hung up on me after I requested records and I did not even receive the courtesy of a call back.

Review of Dr. Steck

- in Tucson, AZ |

I will NOT recommend Dr Steck to anyone. He operated on my foot he made it far worse and more painful than it was when I came to see him. When I brought this to his attention following surgery, he said he had done all that he can and referred me to another doctor. In my opinion, he simply took the money and walked away without any concern for the well being of the patient. I am still in great pain. My recommendation is that the AZ Medical Board revoke his license so he does not harm anyone else
