I broke my leg for the first time in my life and needed emergency surgery. The hospital was expecting me so as I was being transported to my room Dr. B. Curtis met me in the hallway with his blue cap on. He and his staff was very attentive to his patients needs. When I would go to his office for post op, he would spend as much time with me as I needed and answered all my concerns and questions. I never felt rushed out of his office. I highly recommend Dr. Curtis and his staff.

I would highly recommend Dr. Curtis to anyone looking for orthopaedic, hand surgery or related issues. Dr. Curtis performed emergency surgery on my wrist 8/9/2016) that was very badly broken in a hiking accident. In addition, there was significant nerve and soft tissue injury to my hand and wrist.

We won the lottery. My mom fell and shattered her elbow. Dr Curtis was the Ortho on call. He has been amazing, from the first surgery to a reconstructive surgery last week. He is confident, courteous, humble, respectful, not to mention an amazing surgeon.

Dr Curtis was the best when I had a compound fracture and needed immediate surgery. He took the time to call me on the hospital phone and tell me what was going on and answered any of my questions. He has taken the time to make sure my healing process was complete.

Very thorough. Took the time to understand the problem. Explained in detail the process of my healing. I would recommend this doctor to others.

Dr. Ben Curtis was one of the best doctors I have ever been a patient for. Professional, friendly, and very caring. Always made me feel like he had time to talk and show an interest in my recovery. He told me I was one of his more challenging surgery's but yet he did an amazing job of putting my wrist and arm back together. The physical therapist Donna he sent too was also amazing in my recovery. I say Dr. Curtis fixed my arm and Donna helped it heal it. Thanks to Dr. Curtis and his team!
in Salt Lake City, UT |
After hearing about my issue, was able to work me in the same day. I had an abscess in my hand, he did an incision and drainage in the office. (this saves time, and additional copay compared to those that want everything done in an Operating Room). Listened to my problem in a caring way. Would recommend and see again. Thank you Dr. Curtis!
in Riverton, UT |
I received a phone call from Dr. Ben Curtis about 1 month and half after my first visit. He wanted to know how I was doing. We visited for about 20 minutes on the phone. I can't remember the last a doctor called me instead of me calling them. I was very impressed and will continue to sing his praises. It's nice to know you're more than a number on a chart!!!!!

An excellent doctor. He listens and is very perceptive in his ability to assess your level of understanding in relating information to his patients. I am unique and he treated me that way. From start to finish I would give him my highest recommendation. This dude is good!

Dr. Curtis was very good! I would recommend him to my family and friends. He took the time to explain my diagnosis and options to fix it. Took the time to make sure I understood everything and helped me get back to daily activity while minimizing potential problems that could arise in the future. Staff was easy to work with and very nice.
in Salt Lake City, UT |
He did a finger surgery and it was very well done. I have all the range of motion, flexibility and strength i used to. the scar is healing and minimal for what was done. He was professional and answered any questions I had. He also helped me get in before the end of the year on somewhat short notice and that was also a blessing.
