Review of Dr. Kim

-Mannassas, VA |

Dr. Kim did both my hip replacement and shoulder rotator cuff reconstruction. I can't say enough good about him. I have no pain, full range of motion, and have recovered to the same strength level as I had prior to the joints starting their pain. I don't play tennis anymore just because I don't want to aggravate the joints, but feel like I could. I highly recommend this excellent doctor. Just put the time and effort into physical therapy after his procedure. Tremendous asset to the community

Review of Dr. Kim

- in Manassas, VA |

Dr. Kim is an excellent listener ! He talks "to" you not "at" you. Explains conditions and recommended treatments in plain English for you to be able to make an informed decision. He also has a great sense of humor :)

Review of Dr. Peltier


Dr. Peltier is without question the best shoulder specialist anywhere! He has been so kind and helpful, as well as being an incredibly skilled surgeon, that I can not recommend him highly enough. Choosing him to take care of your orthopaedic issues is the best decision you'll ever make!

Review of Dr. Hosick

- in Bristow, VA |

I’ve been a patient of Dr. Hosick for a while now and I’ve had nothing but positive and very professional experiences with him and his staff. One of the professional traits I admire most about Dr. Hosick is that he’s a no nonsense tell it like it is doctor who won’t sugarcoat anything and tells you honestly what is the best remedy or options for the condition you are being seen for.

Review of Dr. Highfill

- in Woodbridge VA |

Unfortunately I have had to see Dr. Highfill for several injuries. From surgery to repair a ruptured Achilles, to multiple shoulder issues. He has always been polite, thorough and extremely knowledgeable. I could not be happier with him and his care.

Review of Dr. Peltier

-Gainesville, VA |

He thoroughly explained the “why’s” behind my symptoms and his recommended approach. It seems reasonable and less invasive than I anticipated.

Review of Dr. Highfill

-Bristow, VA |

My daughter severely broke her arm and required surgery mountain biking. Dr. Highfill was fantastic from the first time we saw him. He explained everything to me clearly and put her at ease during the entire process. He patiently answered our questions and each new visit he would normally bring something up that she had shared (i.e. she likes onion sandwiches) and that would disarm her anxiety. Hopefully we never have need for Dr. Highfill’s services again but if we do I will bring them here

Review of Dr. Peltier

- |

I've seen this doctor several times for my shoulder. He has a great bedside manner and takes the time to explains things to you when you're just overwhelmed with pain. He is kind and empathetic. I have seen many surgeons over the years for different things and he is by far one of the great ones. I wouldn't hesitate to drive the hour distance to get an opinion from him. He knows his stuff and is genuinely concerned in patient education and alternatives.

Review of Dr. Highfill


I broke my humerus shaft being bucked off a horse. Dr. Highfill was professional, humble and personable. He had a sense of humor that many need in a time of uncertainty. He gave me both options for the repair of my arm and did not try and persuade me one way or the other. He was prompt to schedule surgery and warned me of any possibilities that may take place in surgery. Was personable in the office visit, pre-op and post-op.
