He is kind, compassionate, caring, meticulous, has wicked good surgical skills, the whole package. I brag about him to everyone and anyone who will listen. I would not wish injury on anyone but I'm telling you, if you need and orthopedist, Athens Bone and Joint is the place to go and Dr. Ryan is the man to see!

First visit after a fall went very well after knee gave way.Ryan indicated we could *manage* this and to return when the injuries healed.I did.He was 180 degrees the other way, informing me he was a SURGEON and trying to send me elsewhere from an internet listing.Nothing personally known.Yet the www says he treats such problems as I have.No, he doesn't.Even said many others have no problem with Tylenol after I reiterated it affects my memory and causes confusion.I am not everyone else. I am Me!

Winder, kGeorgia |
Dr. Ryan is a trustworthy and caring doctor. I want a doctor who listens to my problems and concerns. I find that Dr.Ryan is that person. Dr. Ryan explained the pro and cons of my surgery, so I felt like I knew what to expect during my hospital stay. He explained the healing process and when I would be back to normal. Dr.Ryan explained that I could do whatever I was comfortable doing after I returned home( within reason reason of course). So my recovery was swift and sure.
in Athens, GA |
Dr. Ryan is prompt and very informative. He listens to what I have to say and then gives me his best advice with a range of options. He has done two procedures on me (screw insert in fractured metatarsal and arthroscopic repair of torn miniscus). I trust him completely. Staff is excellent as well as his very competent PA. Excellent physician and surgeon.
