Saw Tina both times I came in. Can't help but wonder if they don't make a lot of Money off gel Injections because after reviewing my MRI results she said orbit rumatoid arth. You don't need surgery. Hot second Opinion from Another doc and within 3 weeks I had full replacement. New doc said gel shots would not work and he saw no arth. My advice?? DO NOT waste time or money on these people.

Dr Dungy and his staff are wonderful. He did hip surgery on my right hip 8/8/2016 and the result was outstanding. I was discharged in 2 days, in home PT 2 for weeks and driving in 3 weeks. My hip is installed perfectly and I have no significant pain.

Here's my experience with Dr Dungy August 2016 I was recently diagnosed with a torn meniscus in my knee and was looking for a good doctor to fix it. I found Dr Dungy on the internet and selected him due to the positive reviews. Drove up from Tucson to see this doctor and it was worth the trip. He put me at ease and explained everything and I had complete confidence in him. The subsequent surgery went well and I highly recommend him. One of the best Doctors I have ever had.

An Excellent physician! Top notch. Best Ortho. doctor I've ever seen.
in Maricopa, AZ |
I had total replacement of both knees and have been very pleased both Dr Dungy's Work and his bedside manner. Questions were answered completely and my wife was Included in the process and his office staff were very supportive of her when she called to ask questions post op. I have recommended him highly.

I just called for a shoulder injury that likely involves my right shoulder rotator cuff. The injury occurred on Monday, May 23, 2016. I was told by whomever answered the phone at Dr. Dungy's office that the first appointment I could get would be in August 2016. This woman was rude and showed absolutely NO concern for the urgency of my situation. If I have a tear of a rotator cuff muscle, time is of the essence, as atrophy begins at the time of the tear and the surgical repair window is brief.
in Maricopa, AZ |
From Dr.Dungy to everyone in his office,this is an absolutely fantastic crew.! They create an atmosphere of treatment rarely found these days,unhurried and patient,explaining well, responding to your questions so you really are part of a team! If every medical team worked so well, many would have a better opinion of the medical profession. We would highly recommend Dungy Orthopedic Center to anyone needing this type of care.Thanks to all of you for doing such an excellent job!

Dr. Dungy is absolutely amazing!!! He is by far the kindest most sincere and caring physician I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. His knowledge and the way he explains things to his patients leave you feeling comfortable and confident. Additionally, his staff was a pleasure to work with, everything for my surgery was handled professionally and timely.

Dr. Dungy combines technical expertise with a great personality that's almost impossible to find anymore. He's kind, considerate and explains anything you ask in easily understood language. He's an amazing surgeon that explains all your options to make sure you have the information you need to make an informed decision. He has a huge following in this area.

very competent orthopedic doctor - replaced my wife's knee with excellent results. He and staff make patients very comfortable with the feeling that they care. He even sent a rose to my wife to enjoy in her hospital room after surgery!
in Gold Canyon, AZ |
I have had 2 total knee replacements through Dr. Dungy. I could not be happier, his bed side manners are fantastic, the including my wife into the conversation made us both feel good. The follow up with his staff has been wonderful. This was my 3rd knee doctor I had gone too and I knew he was the one to use after the first visit.
