I've been a patient at DOC for 17 years and have seen several different doctors in the practice.I 'be had 2 appointments Dr. Tingey and have been pleased with my visit. We discussed options for my knee and he responded to all my questions I'm anticipating a great relationship.

I imagine I am like most people/patient's and hope for the best but prepare for the worst when it comes to seeing a Dr, especially as a new patient. Dr Tingey is why we still hold out that hope for the best! From the moment he entered the room I felt that he was atttentive as well as responsive to my needs. I am currently under his care and feel that I finally have a light at the end of this extremely long and drawn out tunnel that is the quest for healing.

I have been to many surgeons in the past. My experience with Dr . Tingey was highly satisfactory. He was very thorough, took the time to review everything. Very pleasant demeanor, didn't feel rushed. I would highly recommend him.

His inept handling of my L-hip replacement has made me a cripple: I am forced to walk with a cane, have my right shoes built up to compensate for the difference in leg lengths & deal with the pain & suffering resulting from walking with a weak hip. Furthermore, his PAC tried to cover up the error; I had to demand to see surgeon, but it wasn't until I got a 2nd opinion that I discovered my gluteal nerve has been permanently damaged. This condition has affected every physical aspect of my life.

Dr. Craig Tingey is nothing short of a miracle worker He and his staff reconstructed my right shoulder with massive rotator cuff tears that the VA said was inoperable. My shoulder was so torn up that VA Ortho claimed there was nothing they could do and any operation might make the situation worse. This went on for SIX (6) years! Finally, after six spontaneous posterior dislocations in six months, by the grace of God, I was referred to Dr. Tingey. He was able tease out three points ... .

I was only 35 when my first TKA was recommended and at the time TKAs had a useful life expectancy of only 3-5 years for my age group. Therefore I put off surgery on both knees for nearly 28 years getting by on anti-inflammatory pills until the constant pain was so severe that I had to regularly relay on pain pills to sleep at night. Dr. Tingey listened to my expectations, carefully answered all my questions and was straight forward about post surgery prognosis.
