Review for Dr. Plate

Dr. Langfitt is very professional and informative. He has answered all my questions with honesty and efficiency. I would highly recommend him to anyone having hip problems. I would give him 10 plus stars for his ability as a surgeon!

Review for Dr. Langfitt

Dr. Langfitt did a hip replacement surgery for my dad when other surgeons were too concerned with his underlying medical conditions. Not only did he do a great job, but Dr. Langfitt has a wonderful demeanor.
