Very difficult to get back schedule to see Dr Paul. We spent the entire day in NKC emergency room and were told knee was swollen from fluid. I had an appointment the next day in his office so they were able to see both of us and Dr Paul thought it was just full of blood. Went home was fine came down for bone scan and MRI reoccurred driving home it swelled up and he could hardly drive home. NOW 3 weeks later got out of bed not swollen and within a few minutes it was so swollen couldn’t walk and pain was unbearable the worst he has had so drive back to NKC Emergency spent the day did get morphine shot and said since we were at Emergency we could call Dr Paul office so we called last night to answering service and were told they would sent receptionist office a message to call us first thing this morning. We didn’t not get a call Back by 9:30 so we called and we told if we could get to Liberty Office we could see Dr Paul. Got here he wasn’t even in today. Need easier way to contac

I had total knee replacement in both knees just 6 weeks apart. I was quite bow legged and Dr Paul was able to straighten both legs during surgery. It’s only been 7 weeks since the last one and I have absolutely no pain walking or going up and down stairs. I’m playing golf and taking long walks with no swelling or pain. I highly recommend Dr David Paul. He has changed my life.

Dr. Paul is wonderful! He listens and doesn’t rush your appointment. He explains everything well. He’s compassionate and caring. He’s the only orthopedic surgeon that I would trust.

He just completed my second hip replacement. If I didn’t trust him, I would not have returned to have the other one done. Superior assessment skills and outstanding communication makes for positive outcomes, every time. Our family has had 6 hip replacements and one large ganglion cyst another surgeon refused to touch. Quite simply, he is the best.

I spoke with a woman in this billing office today and in my truth she is one of the most rudest person you would ever encounter. I asked to speak with the Office Manger and was told she was on a conference call. I call back to speak with billing and this woman was horrible. I told her I would like to speak with the Office Manager again and was told she left the office 30 minutes ago. I questioned how could this be when I call lest than 10 minutes ago.

I have had 3 knee surgeries, 2 elbow, and 1 shoulder fixed with Dr. David Paul. He has done an amazing job on each surgery and he is always extremely friendly on every visit. He answers all the questions I have for him and he is never too busy to educate me on the injury I am seeing him for. My elbow injury was so traumatic I was not supposed to get my full range of motion back. Thanks to Dr. Paul I got 100% of my motion back. I would highly recommend Dr. David Paul for any orthopedic need.

Dr. Paul did extensive knee replacement on my husband. His knee is perfect now, no pain and after physical therapy he has no restrictions on the knee. We would never use anyone but Dr. David Paul for orthopedic surgery.
