I had a fall and broke my left radius. Dr Ratliff was the attending emergency room doctor... Lucky me. He repaired my wrist, the scar is hardly noticeable... I'm back to instructing all of my exercise classes. Dr Ratliff and staff provided excellent service. He was very empathetic with me, as well as very patient answering all my questions and concerns. Thank you Dr Ratliff for your excellent work.

I fractured my ankle and I could never thank Dr. Ratliff enough for the excellent and quality care he rendered in and out of the hospital. I knew the moment we met he was the surgeon I needed. I wanted a surgeon who is professional, knowledgeable, concerned, caring, a great listener, humble and who has integrity. His level of expertise, and genuine caring ways coupled with his excellent bedside manner led to my full recovery. I am so grateful and I thank God that he was placed in my path.

He came in on a holiday weekend and took time away from his family to help me. He spent time explaining everything and was very helpful to my family. The care and attention I received from him was 5 stars. He kept an eye on everything during my stay at Valley. We wouldn't think of going to anyone else.

Dr Ratliff repaired my severely lacerated biceps on my left arm. It was basically torn in two. His surgical care and follow up was outstanding.
