He gave me a 3 min examination. Clearly he did not care much about my condition and I am not really sure if in those 3 minutes he gave me the correct diagnosis. When I asked more info, he told me that I could read some pieces of paper that he printed out from the Internet.

Dr Gwathmey is a very skilled orthopedic surgeon. He genuinely cares about his patients, and helps them achieve optimal success in returning to Wellness. His abilities are of an a+ outcome, I can't praise him enough, he is highly proficient! I'd recommend him every time!

My 12 year old daughter dislocated her knee cap, tore her MPFL, and severed a piece of her femur in the process. When all circumstances in Lynchburg for 11 days led us to Dr. G. he, knowing the severity of her injury, fit us in his schedule on a Thursday, then cleared 4 hours of OR time for the next day to get her surgery done. He not only used plastic screws to avoid future surgery, but he did a quadricep-turn down to create a new ligament. Here we are 6 months out and she is good as new.
