What People Say About Dr. Earl Kilbride Jr, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I fell and injured my foot/ ankle 4months ago today. Because I don’t have health insurance, I was hesitant to go to the doctor and tried to home-remedy it for a few weeks post injury. After 7wks and it not getting better, I asked for recommendations on Orthopedic Surgeons in Austin, TX. I made an appt. with Dr. Earl Kilbride Jr. He walks in, points to my boot/ crunches and says "Well, that boots' not gonna work for you", asks me what happened and says he is going to go look at the x-rays and leaves the room. My dad demanded we see the doctor again. Dr. Earl Kilbride Jr came back and said "I assumed she was fine because she wasn't wearing her boot. That word ASSUME is one of the most unprofessional words that a medical professional should use. If it weren't for my dad, Dr. Earl J. Kilbride would have allowed me to leave his facility without a proper boot and proper expectation of a plan of action. Who pays a ridiculous medical bill/ uses their insurance funds on doctors who assume???

Dr. Kilbride is my hero. It's that simple I have a bone disease and have both shoulders rebuilt, both hips replaced, one knee replaced and the other knee is preop for replacement. Dr Kilbride has done every surgery except the 1st hip replacement. I trust him completely and so does my family. He is skilled and kind and smart as a whip and knows his stuff. You need a bone fixed? He is your man!!

Dr. Earl J. Kilbride Jr. is the Best Orthopedics Surgeon in Austin, no I will go one step further. The best Orthopedics Surgeon in Texas. I had a complete rotator cuff tear, to my left shoulder, that had separated from the bone. I was in so much pain since August 2016. I knew surgery was the only answer, but I tried to avoid it long as I could. But couldn't deal with the pain any longer. I had surgery at the end of May. It has only been about 16 days, and my shoulder feels GREAT, NO PAIN.

Love Dr. Kilbride and staff is friendly and office runs smooth. Only complaint is I’ve never been able to get anyone to answer the phone no matter which option I choose so the ease of scheduling appointments or in my case needing to talk to the disability forms person I’ve been trying for a week and nothing.
