Review of Dr. Watts


I read the reviews while waiting to see him, it made me nervous. But it was completely opposite of some of the reviews I read. My son had a sports injury that is going to set him back for awhile and that's a big deal to him and I. Dr. Watts was very professionally and caring in address our options and time table for his recovery. He gave a variety of possibilities on recovery progress time table. We left the office with a complete understanding of what will take place in the future.

Review of Dr. Padon

- in Abilene, TX |

Dr. Padon put my shoulder back together perfectly! I had several old football injuries that I had been living in horrible pain for years. He wasn’t even sure he could reattach, but he did a fantastic job! I highly recommend Dr Padon and thank him and the surgery team for putting me back together. I feel fantastic without all the pain and inflammation. Kind regards, Richard Lockett

Review of Dr. Britten

- in Abilene, TX |

I highly recommend Dr Britten! My 8 year old daughter saw Dr Britten after years of being treated by other specialists/doctors for a bump on her knee. Nobody would take it seriously or further investigate. We saw Dr Britten & by visit #3 we were discussing surgery. On 8/07/18 my daughter was undergoing what we all thought would be a cyst removal but it ended up being much worse. She was diagnosed with synovial sarcoma & had Dr Britten not taken her case serious we would still not know!He's great

Review of Dr. Vann

- in Brownwood , TX |

Dr. Vann is the best. Not a better surgeon in this area. Has done one knee replacement, reverse shoulder replacement, and a another knee replacement next week. Prays with you before surgery, which is very comforting. Has a good sense of humor. Willing to spend whatever time is needed to explain your questions.

Review of Dr. Britten

-Abilene, Texas |

Dr Britten saw my grandson in the ER with gunshot wounds to his elbow. He took care of him in the most caring, professional way I have ever seen. Dr Britten did an amazing job repairing his elbow and hopefully he will regain full use of his arm. I would recommend Dr. Britten for any Orthopedic issues you might have.

Review of Dr. Watts


I would give less than a star if I could. Dr.Watts doesn’t listen to his patients. He has a God complex. Thinks he knows more than his patients. If he would listen, that would help immensely .

Review of Dr. Watts

- in Abilene, TX |

Dr. Watts didn’t listen to me, so he had no idea about how my pain had progressed & further disabled me. Based on med records, I suppose, he identified a disorder he believed I had yet never gave a description of it. For my pain, he verified the meds I was on that weren’t working, and that was it! After, I had a question & saw him down the hallway, so I waited. He saw me, scolded me, then standing within 2 ft of me, told me he was busy and had other patients...my appt was at 9 am, it was 9:09 am

Review of Dr. Padon


Very rude and doesn't take the time to listen and jumps to his own conclusions. He is rude and doesn't have a good bedside manor. I would never recommend him to anyone. I've heard him talk bad about other patients while waiting to see a dr many times.
