    My mom and I have both had hip replacements by Dr. McPherson. Mine were both done in 2011 and my mom's revision was done in 2010. We can't say enough great things about him. He's so sweet and attentive, not to mention very experienced and highly qualified! My mom is 89 and is now in need of a knee replacement and we didn't think twice of going back to him for this surgery.

    The best hip Specialist ever. I've had 4 surgeries. One for a break 2 replacements and one revision. I was very challenged for 7 years until I met Dr McPherson. My right hip had been replaced but was still painful after 5 years. Dr McPherson replaced my left hip and in four month I was thrilled with the movement. He agreed to revise my right hip also and now after a year I can walk run climb or whatever. I love you Dr McPherson. You saved my quality of life. Thank you.

    My 69 year old Mom desperately needs hip revision surgery from a faulty operation 2 years ago. Dr McPherson was recommended to her. His visit will cost her a whopping $700 out of pocket (as her health plan won't pay). It's been cancelled & re-scheduled 4 times in 4 months, 1-2 days before the appt. His staff is detached & unapologetic. (My Dad who died last year, was a Dr who never would've done this to a patient, whether to a Dr's wife or not.) Don't bother with rude, ill-mannered Dr McPherson.

    I was fortunate to find Dr McPherson two years ago. After a hip dislocation which resulted in a extensive infection the Doctor took my case and after an 8 hr surgery my left leg was saved. In the three months of my hospital stay I had many discussions with the Doctor. They were all met with compassion. He answered all of my questions and looked in on me everyday. My husband and I were impressed with the exceptional care i received. His follow up visits still continue including proper nutrition.
