Dr Jones, performed surgeries on my shoulder. After two surgeries off trying to reconstruct my shoulder Dr. Jones had no choice but to replace my shoulder. Although I was too young to have a replacement, I had no other choice. Dr. Jones replaced my shoulder and I have full range of motion and very, very little pain. Dr. Jones is a great surgeon. I would recommend him to anyone that needs orthopedic care.

Dr. Jones is the best orthopedic around!!!!

Everyone from the receptionist at check-in to the scheduling personnel, Doctor, and PT were amazing!

I was pleasantly surprised that I was able to schedule an appointment with Dr. Jones on very short notice. However, when I got to his office, I was informed that Dr. Jones was running 3 hours behind schedule. When I found this out, I decided to leave and schedule an appointment with another physician. I do not doubt that Dr. Jones is a good physician, but I also don't have three hours to sit around a waiting room. That's just ridiculous!

Dr. Jones is a great doctor all the way thur my surgery and after...

I had finally got to the point of needing minor surgery (Tenex) on my elbow. Dr. Montgomery, Dr. Gottschalk, and Dr. Jones all worked to get me in quickly. All three showed an epic amount of concern and understanding, and my surgery was scheduled and completed with FANTASTIC results within my small time frame. Most importantly, all three, as well as their staff, never once made me feel rushed although I know their days are filled to the brim.

Terrible. I literally waited months to hear back from Dr. Jones and his staff about my knee injury. I left dozens of messages and was never called back. The least professional medical experience I have ever had.
