Unfortunately I have had to see Dr. Highfill for several injuries. From surgery to repair a ruptured Achilles, to multiple shoulder issues. He has always been polite, thorough and extremely knowledgeable. I could not be happier with him and his care.

My daughter severely broke her arm and required surgery mountain biking. Dr. Highfill was fantastic from the first time we saw him. He explained everything to me clearly and put her at ease during the entire process. He patiently answered our questions and each new visit he would normally bring something up that she had shared (i.e. she likes onion sandwiches) and that would disarm her anxiety. Hopefully we never have need for Dr. Highfill’s services again but if we do I will bring them here

I broke my humerus shaft being bucked off a horse. Dr. Highfill was professional, humble and personable. He had a sense of humor that many need in a time of uncertainty. He gave me both options for the repair of my arm and did not try and persuade me one way or the other. He was prompt to schedule surgery and warned me of any possibilities that may take place in surgery. Was personable in the office visit, pre-op and post-op.

He rapid fired his questions that half of them I never got to answer. His first questions, why do you feel you need to see an orthopedic surgeon?, Why did you need to go to an urgent care facility? I could not completely answer his questions without him interrupting me with a 2nd and 3rd question. I still never got to tell him what the referring doctor said. When I checked out they wanted me to make my 6 months follow-up, I didn't, apparently the pain in my bones don't qualify for care.

MRI came back showing I tore my ACL and meniscus and had to have surgery. While I was waking up from surgery he told my family the meniscus wasn't torn but it was worse then he expected. The nurse came out and told my family the patellar tendon was torn. During the follow up he I asked him about the patellar and he said my patellar tendon was fine. He said he didn't say it was worse then expected. he said he didn't work on my patellar. But the surgery center said he did. Complete liar

This doctor doesn't know what the heck he is talking about. He said my knee wasn't swollen when it is clear it is, (2x the other). He is an arrogant person who belittles everyone. Don't go to this doctor. I will never go thin again.

Absolutely horrendous appt. Brought my daughter in to see him about concerns with her foot. She has Ehlers Danlos Hypermobility. He spent more time making her feel bad about all the meds she takes for POTS and that if she can't function at a higher level maybe she shouldn't be taking all those meds. This from a doctor who knows nothing about her & has never seen her before. Instead of helping he made her feel terrible about her situation. Will not be going back. He needs to be educated on EDS
