Great Staff even Better Doctor! The staff is friendly and professional from the front desk to the x-ray room. The office is convenient, updated and spotless (like any medical facility should be). Dr. Oliver is extremely knowledgeable and patient too. He may be perceived as a little guarded initially, but he is just thorough, methodical and careful. He also follows up with his patients which is very important. Being referred to this office proved to be a lifesaver for me and my family! Would trus

When I came to Dr. Oliver I had one leg a half an inch shorter than the other, which caused a terrible limp, my knee was bone on bone, 24 hour pain. He did the knee replacement in January 23 and it has given me a new life. He is so concerned about every aspect of my health and well being. He is the last of the doctors that will advocate for a patient, unlike the doctors in a large practice. He is a 5 star doctor!

Does not seem like he cares for the patients. The office over books so I am sitting out there an hour and 45 min past my scheduled appt. He is hard to talk to and doesn't answer my questions. He spends 10 min or less every appt after my knee surgery which was has multiple complications. Over all unsastifactory expierence and do not recommend this doctor to anyone

I have seen Dr. Oliver for all of my orthopaedic needs over the past 16 years and can say he is a fabulous doctor. He has always given me an accurate diagnosis and treatment has been right on target for a full recovery. I have never required surgery but 4 of my close family members have had surgery with Dr. Oliver and he is an amazing surgeon with great skill and knowledge. All have had wonderful results. I would always recommend my family and friends to his care.

About 31/2 weeks ago Dr Oliver performed surgery on me for a ruptured Achilles Tendon. Everything that I have learned about this injury since is relative to the high degree of pain associated with it. To date my pain related to this injury has been manageable without medication. Personally I attribute that to Dr Barry ‘s superior performance in the O.R. His office is 4 hours away from me as was the hospital; a trip I gladly made. Wholeheartedly recommend this Dr. for his capabilities.
