Review for Dr. Stephen Jackson, MD

As a MSN, RN, and a patient of Dr. Jessup, I will honestly report that I feel very comfortable with the care provided by Dr. Jessup. She actually does assessments and seeks to solve the problem at hand and treats the patient (me) holistically.

Review for Dr. Robert Learch, DO

On time. Too much paperwork, why do they have computers? Staff friendly and professional. I like Dr. DeWeese. He explains all options for my knee problem. He's willing to do whatever choice I make. After a cortisone injection, he steered me in the right direction. I will definitely see him again.

Review for Dr. Frederick DeWeese, MD

Dr. Rains is thorough, spends adequate time with his patients, and is highly skilled. He treated my Paroxysmal AFIB competently and very professionally. As a patient, I trust his skill and judgement.

Review for Dr. Martin Rains, MD

Very strong language barrier. I hope and pray that’s why he seems uncaring. If it’s not a language barrier then he really just doesn’t care or want to help.

Dr. Hodges took care of me during my 2nd, 3rd, and 4th pregnancies and I absolutely loved her! My 2nd pregnancy was high risk to my baby and she kept a great eye on him, giving me daily ultrasounds and inducing me 4wks early. She is the reason he wasn't stillborn. I highly recommend Dr. Hodges!

Dr. Jackson is the best. He has replaced both of my hips and just replaced my right knee. He puts his patients needs first. He explains everything to you. He is a kind, understanding Doctor. Look no further for a good orthopedic surgeon. Dr. Jackson is the one you need.

Dr. Jackson was very thorough and concise with his pre- and post-surgery consultation. The level of explanation from he and his staff left me with no follow-up questions. I'm very pleased with the outcome of my surgery and very pleased with my experience at the Orthopedic Institute.

Review for Dr. Shawn Jones, MD

I had a fungal growth in my ears. After several visits he only cleaned out my ears but never prescribed medication to cure the condition. Changed providers who took a culture and subsequently wrote a prescription for antibiotics which cleared up the problem. Very disappointed with his service.

Review for Dr. Mark Rusten, MD

Dr DeWeese performed my total knee replacement and I have been extremely happy with his care. He's very professional, extremely smart, and a good listener. I don't think I could have found a better surgeon or a nicer doctor. He's the best !

Review for Dr. Frederick DeWeese, MD

She wasn't familiar with my diagnosed blood condition of Hemochromotosis , and spent most of the office visit researching my condition. She offered no solution and care, She only ordered more blood test to confirm the Dx, and made a follow up appt. to see her nurse.
