in Kingsport, TN |
Dr Deboer did a revision on my knee replacement and did an excellent job. Finally my knee feels stable and I am able to return to my active life style of long walks, bicycling, etc. If I need any other joint attention I will return to Dr Deboer.

Waited over an hour and then pa came in and dr never showed up. Walked out.
in Smithville, TN |
I had a very pleasant experience. Everyone was kind, knowledgeable, and helpful. Even though my visit did not indicate I needed a joint replacement, it was good to know the status of my condition.
in Hendersonville, TN |
I was pleased that he took time with us to explain everything. He even ordered therapy to see if it would help with other problem. It helps me feel better when a Dr. seems to want to help you.
in Sparta, TN |
Dr DeBoer explains everything to you so it is very easy to understand. He takes the time to answer any questions that you may have and his staff are great also. I highly recommend him
in Mt. Juliet, TN |
This was my first visit with Dr. DeBoer. I found him to be extremely interested in my problem, very thorough in evaluation and explained my situation in a manner I understood. He was in no rush and gave me full opportunity to ask all questions I desired. His intense listening and studying my medical history was most professional and impressive. He and his staff were all extremely courteous, friendly and professional.

Did a R Hip Replacement, My surgery leg that he did is too short. I have had nothing but pain and discomfort since he did my replacement. Worse part, I had no post op care afterward. He ignore me and I had to go to another Orthro to clean up his mess!!!
in TN |
Excellent staff and doctors. Process from registration, to x-rays, to OV with nurse, then PA, then doctor took only an hour with no delays. Smoothest office operation I have ever seen with everyone busy doing their jobs. Dr. DeBoer was very amicable, and fully explained my condition in detail, even drawing diagrams. His plan is to try all options before surgery, and I appreciate that.
in Murfreesboro, TN |
He is the best.I have had more damage in my knees over the span of 30 plus years,with wrong decisions made by Orth..drs.Dr.Deboer came back into my Health Care these last few years.He has slowly started putting the pieces back together in my knees.I know from experience that no other Orth.dr would he!p me.He never gives up on me.and his PA Brandon is one smart caring person.
