Excellent Doctor, great bedside manner, good communicator and highly skilled in his profession. Planning on a knee surgery after he did a great job on my shoulder. I had one other great orthopedic surgeon and a real lemon in the past. They are not all created equal.

Dr. Vinton was recommended by my primarycare physician. Dr. Vinton did my second knee replacement, rotator cuff and reattatched my bicep surgeries. He is kind,competent and fun. My recovery was fast! Highly recommend Dr. Vinton. Thankyou.

I sustained a trimalleolar break and dislocation of my left foot on Feb. 3rd and had open reduction and internal fixation. Dr. Vinton and his team are knowlegable, professional, compassionate and extremely competent. I highly recommend him.
