Review of Dr. Phillips III

- in Berkley, MA |

I did my homework. He has done both my hips. His skill, his persona, and his explanations of before and after procedure are topnotch. I cannot understand anyone being unhappy with having him as their physician. If you to disparrage him. want to walk without pain with a minimum of post op rehab, sign him up. He had one potential patient with impossible demands that chose to visit every site she could find to disparage him, and he never performed surgery on her. Draw your own conclusions.

Review of Dr. Winnick

Saw Dr. Winnick for a tib/fib break post-surgery. He was personable, reassuring, thorough and thoughtful in his recommendations for next steps. He patiently answered all of my questions and with a smile. Would absolutely recommend him.

Dr. Phillips replaced my hip last week, my first surgery ever. I went home with no opioids, and my bandage came off in 4 days. After a week I'm down to 1 crutch. His attention, kindness, expertise exceeded all expectations. I am so grateful.

Review of Dr. Phillips III

-Berkley, MA |

He rushes you. Does not give any post-surgical advice. You will feel like you're part of a machine. No contact after the surgery. Didn't even call me. I spent a total of about 4 minutes with him from the time I went into his office prior to the surgery, The day of the surgery he spent 30 seconds with me and didn't even give me any advice as to what things would be like afterwards. And I never saw him after the surgery till I went 2 weeks later to my post-surgical appointment. Spent 60 seconds.

Review of Dr. Phillips III

- in Weymouth, MA |

Dr. Phillips professionalism, knowledge, compassion and bedside manner is un-matched. Dr. Phillips appointments are thorough and not rushed. He communicates his recommendations clearly and I am confident with all of Dr. Phillips treatment recommendations. I am blessed to have found such a wonderful Surgeon.

Review of Dr. Phillips III

- in Holbrook, MA |

I am a seventy years old female. Stay clear of this doctor. He spent a total of seven minutes with me and misdiagnosed my knee problem. He told me, "that some elderly people in this world do not have access to medical help and have to live with the pain". A second doctor explained everything about my right knee and has me scheduled for a knee replacement. I do think Dr. Phillips made his wrong diagnosis because he was running 40-60 behind schedule and wanted finish his day on time.

Review of Dr. Phillips III

- in Boston, MA |

Dr. Phillips is the most amazing Dr. I ever had. His skills in surgery are unbelievable. My whole experience in having my hip replaced was so well handled from the staff in his office to the staff at the hospital (N.E. Baptist Hosp - Boston, MA) to the after care, the rehab, the experience of walking again. I was on my feet 4 hours after surg to get the blood flowing again and walking the corridor. Thank you Dr. Phillips.
