I had carpal tunnel release done on my right hand and Dr. Ethridge was very informative about my condition. I am very pleased with his expertise in this field and planning my next surgery on left hand. He also has excellent bedside manner and a positive attitude. Thank you, Dr. Ethridge for exceeding my expectations!

I’ve seen Dr. Ethridge before for carpal tunnel. This visit was for my hands and he was very thorough explaining why my hands were hurting from arthritis. Explained where it was the worst and what to expect. Gave me options with OTC meds and what my options would be before and if I had to have surgery. Well pleased with my visit and always pleased with Dr. Etheridge.
