He is so nice. He explained what is wrong with my hands, and what I xould do for them. I got an injection in each hand, which was not too bad, and for the first time in years, I'm fairly pain free. He makes you feel important, and takes time with you.

I had both hands repaired, arthroplasty, carpel tunnel, and dequervians. Excellent results. You will see his PA for almost every visit. He is very busy and will do an evaluation, pre surgery consult, and surgery. The whole process is routine for him, so be prepared to feel rushed. Bottom line is that he is good at what he does. The office staff in general is indifferent and hard to deal with. It is very difficult to schedule surgery because they never answer the phone.

I cannot express enough the gratitude to Dr. Anton Fakhouri and the entire staff of MidAmerica Orthopaedics. Dr. Fakhouri is very kind, he has a wonderful bedside manner and Dr. Fakhouri and I had the same goal-to repair my wrist so that I may lead a normal life with use and mobility of my arm. Dr. Fakhouri is an extremely intelligent and skilled surgeon. I was unlucky to break my wrist, but very lucky to find Dr. Fakhouri- thank you so very much.

My husband had 2 knuckles REPLACED by Dr. Fakhouri. And they are awesome. He was very thorough explaining everything before and after the procedure. I would recommend him to everyone. And as far as the negative statement i would wait an hour to see this man if needed. Great things happen to those that wait! I am sure that was an isolated incident because we have been seeing him for a couple years. He knows Hands!

I would not recommend Dr. Fakhouri and would leave zero stars, if it was possible. This doctor is very unprofessional. I waited for over an hour and a half for a scheduled appointment. He spoke with me briefly and began speaking into a recorder. He also suggested that I had poor health insurance. He asked if I was employed and inquired, "Do you have Obamacare?". The nurse in the room appeared to be embarrassed by the awkward, inappropriate and disrespectful manner of the doctor. She apologized.

I had carpal tunnel release, cubical tunnel release, and medial epicondylectomy procedures on my left arm. I so appreciated what a thoroughly efficient office they run. X-rays, surgery, & therapy centers all onsite with huge parking area. No multiple trips all over the place. Though many procedures are fairly routine for a lot of med professionals, they know it is not for the pt.& they do an outstanding job on education, explanations, and friendliness and compassion. OUTSTANDING!!

He listened and recorded details carefully about my injury, showing a lot of concern. He presented treatment options in a professional, knowledgeable, easygoing manner, and took time to answer any questions I had.
