Everyone in the office is very courteous and friendly, starting with the front-desk people. I didn't have to wait more than 10-15 minutes and I felt like I had adequate time with Dr. Omotola. He is very easy to talk to and explains things well.

Dr. Omatola is great! He does not rush to operate unless it’s absolutely necessary. He remembers his patients when they aren’t in his office. I like his honesty, and how thoroughly he explained everything. He is staff is also very nice and helpful.

Doctors have a reputation for considering themselves superior to everyone else, but this Dr. Omatola was arrogant, ill mannered and totally disrespectful to a 100 year old woman who came to him for assistance.

Dr. Omatola was an excellent choice for my total knee replacement surgery. It was amazing that the first time I got up on my feet after surgery, I had NO pain in my knee, and no, I was on no pain medicine stronger that extra strength Tylenol. That was eight months ago and my knee is wonderful.

I could not be happier with my experience with Dr. Omatola and his staff. I was referred to him by many friends before I had my knee replacement surgery. I am eight weeks out and doing well. I am already scheduled to have my other knee replaced. We are blessed to have such a highly skilled, considerate, humble and kind doctor in our area.

Dr. Omotola did a knee replacement on my husband. He had been told by people how awful it was and even put it off a year. When he finally got it done he went to Dr. Omotola. He was up and walking the same day, off the walker in a few days and cutting grass 10 days post op. All the staff at the hospital raved about the great job Dr. Omotola does and how his patients seem to have less problems than some doctors. I know three people who have used him and all are extremely satisfied!

As long as you aren't 19 minutes late to your appointment you might get to see Omotola. If you are they'll ask you to leave. And not in a nice way. The women at the desk are snotty and condescending. Now if you're fortunate enough for them to deem you worthy, then you will get to see a doctor's assistant. They will tell you that you're in pain. As if you didn't know already. Then, maybe they will get an mri ordered with some place you've never heard of. Maybe. This is the most unprofessiona

I had both knees replaced with excellent results. Dr. Omotola is very thorough in explaining procedures and what to expect post-surgery. The pain was controlled very well. He truly cares about his patients, their comfort, and achieving the desired results.

I highly recommend Dr. Omatola to anyone who is looking for a great orthopedic doctor. He is personable and takes the time to listen without rushing you. I was given a cortisone injection for knee pain. I never felt the needle go in. I will recommend him to all my family and friends.

Dr. Stirnaman retired now I am seeing Dr. Stewart and Dr. Omatola, both excellent Doctors - Dr. Stewart has given me cortisone shots. I am to the point of surgery so I went to Dr. Omatola - referred by Dr. Stewart and Sandy Piening who just had a knee replacement. She is doing great! Quick recovery and everything she tells everyone at work how great Dr. Omatola is. I was very impressed with Dr. Omatola, he answered everything, I will be back after my surgery to fill this out again!
