So friendly. So nice. We actually had fun at the visit. How often can a patient say that. They made the up coming surgery sound safe and quick.

Dr. Jones has a very pleasant personality, likewise his PA, Emily as well. Good listener and informative. I like any doctor with a good best side manner and Dr. Jones has that.

Review of Dr. Jones Jr

- in Brandon, SD |

Dr. Jones did both hand carpal tunnel releases July 3 and a trigger finger release on each hand. I was reluctant to do both hands at the same time but he assured me that downtime would be minimal and I would be happy that I didn’t wait to do the second hand. I am SO pleased I listened to him. Two days in I’m basically pain free, able to perform most normal daily activities and very excited. Surgery was scheduled for 7AM and I was in the car on the way home at 9 AM. No pain pills needed. Took a few Ibuprofen day one just to stay ahead of the expected pain, but don’t think I really would have needed them. I haven’t driven yet but confident I could have yesterday if needed. It’s all good!

Dr. McKenzie is a very talented surgeon, with a great bedside manner. Dr. McKenzie has replaced my left knee and left hip. I would highly recommend Dr. McKenzie services.

Review of Dr. Carlson

- in Bryant, SD |

Dr. Carlson did a spinal fusion and I was recovering nicely. I suddenly developed arm and leg weakness along with some other serious health problems. He admitted me to the hospital and he and his team of experts diagnosed a serious infection of the central nervous system (Guillaine Barre Syndrome). Without Dr. Carlson’s expertise and medical knowledge, i most likely would have landed in a nursing home. I am so thankful for Dr. Carlson’s medical expertise and care.

Review of Dr. Watson

- in Brookings, SD |

On 04/19/2018 Dr Watson Reattached my quadricep tendon to my kneecap from an injury on 04/15/2018. Less than four weeks later I am walking with crutches and if I had not had the surgery I would’ve lost the use of my leg. He is extremely caring And I felt very comfortable with everything he had to say I will never be able to thank him enough for giving me back the use of my leg the orthopedic Institute is an awesome facility whom I will always go to in time of need thank you again Gary Thompson

Review of Dr. Carlson

-Sioux Falls, SD |

I'm experiencing a somewhat complicated and rare issue and was hoping Dr. Carlson could help to identify the source of my pain and appropriate treatment. Nope. He only wanted to discuss surgical options, even during my first appointment. A follow-up to review my MRI was not a review- just more surgery discussion. I later found out, via my radiology report, that my MRI showed a bulged lumbar disc- Dr. Carlson hadn't even addressed it. I do NOT recommend him and frankly I consider him dangerous.
