Birmingham, AL |
He has treated our family for 16 years. He is the only doctor who I trust explicitly. Very thorough, but not quick to cut. Takes his time to talk t Fast recovery. He saved my leg in'09 from a fall in Florida (fl hosp gave us wrong info). Husband was back golfing within a couple months after rotator cuff. A Doctor with great bedside manners, no "attitude" and an expert in his field. One of a kind. Such a competent doctor....words cannot express. Will continue to refer.-haven't had a complaint yet

Dr. Adkinson has repaired 2 shoulders and one knee for me, all three have had great results. He and his staff are very personable and perfessional and I have recommended him to several people. He and his staff are the best!

Wonderful surgeon. He takes time with each appointment to make sure you are fully aware of what is going on and are at ease with intervention needed. He performed knee and shoulder surgery and years later I am still doing great!
in Montgomery, AL |
Very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. Have had total knee replacement and all went well. I'd use him again.
