Dr. Proctor has successfully fixed my knee, shoulder and elbow. Thanks to his surgical skills and Orthopaedic expertise I've been able to continue an active life style. I highly recommend Dr. Proctor and his staff at Alta.
Santa Barbara, CA |
I highly recommend Dr Proctor and his MA staff. Both he and staff explained the workings of my shoulders, surgical options/procedures and outcomes. Surgery and recovery were well explained. Post op calls and follow-up care/appointments were cordial and professional, while at the same time personal, answering my questions. His Medical Assistant staff are impressive, very knowledgeable, warm, friendly and not in a hurry. I felt I was very competently taken care of from first to last.

I had a traumatic sports injury with a locked knee and significant pain (bucket handle meniscus tear). Dr. Proctor and his staff we top notch. Surgery was necessary to repair the tear and was completed less than a week after my injury. They are good people and talented professionals. Thanks!

I felt like I was put in a factory and they were just trying different things to see what worked. I had a shoulder injury. He could not tell me exactly what was wrong but said surgery could help.
