Dr. Dodgin did my arthroscopic knee surgery & I could not have chosen a better surgeon!! He was awesome. Great bedside manner, was a great listener & was intent on finding the best solution to my painful problem. His staff from the front desk to the PA & surgical staff was also just as awesome!

I have been seeing Dr. Dodgin for several years, and he kept me from knee replacement for as long as my knee would allow. I had surgery in May with very good results. My entire surgical experience was superb.

Dr Dodgin is simply amazing! I am shocked at how quickly I recovered from my anterior approach hip replacement! I had been in pain for 2 years before finally deciding to go through with the replacement. I am now walking long distances without pain or limping!! He and his staff are caring, confident, helpful, and so personable! I highly recommend him for hip or knee replacements!

Had an initial appointment for knee pain, xray's were fine, but if pain continued I would need an MRI. MRI completed, set up appointment to go over results and treatment options. Made an appointment for 3:15, at 4:35 I had not seen Dr. Dodgin, just placed in a room and told he would be in. Upon leaving I told the PA that I had to go, stated I could reschedule my appointment or wait and he would be in with me next. I understand wait times change based on patients/surgery, but almost an hour and a half is a little much. Disappointed in the lack of communication or caring shown. Will not be back for another visit.

Dr. Dodgin is a well-mannered gentleman, easy to talk with, and knows his profession. I came from Canada to see him and it was worth the visit.

I love Dr. Dodgin. He has the perfect "bedside manner," is well-versed in his field and always takes the time to talk to you, explains things in "English," not "medicalese." He is a great guy and has great staff. I particularly like Ryan. The office is very efficient, I am always out in a timely manner and it is always a great patient experience
