Henderson, NV |
This is a really good surgeon! I have talked to people who have had similar breaks, but much different results. My accident happened on Nov 29th, the surgery on Dec 2nd (my not-so-happy birthday). I was told by most nurses and physical therapists that it would probably take about six months for my ankle to heal. But about four months later, I was able to walk without a cane. I know I was unlucky to have such nasty breaks in my ankle, but I was very lucky, indeed, that Dr Redfern was my surgeon.

I would whole-heartedly recommend Dr. Redfern and all his office staff. He is calm, patient, attentive, and efficient, informative, and most importantly, he was respectful toward me. He performed meniscus repair on my right knee, and now I have been referred to him with osteoarthritis in the other knee. I am quite looking forward to seeing him again! Under pressure, his staff also swiftly handled a conflict with the hospital on the morning of my surgery.

8 months ago I was in a very bad accident breaking my hip, I had surgery to stabilize it since I'm only 35 years old.. Fast forward, I was in intense pain daily, couldn't walk straight, sitting for long periods of time was almost impossible... I'm only 35! I didn't want to continue living a less than happy life in so much pain and relying on pain meds to get through the day..I did some research, found Dr.Redfern, did my total hip and I'm walking again great and zero pain. I have my life back!

Dr. Redfern has performed two surgeries on me. The first was five years ago when he did surgery on my right shoulder (damaged from tennis) The second was last year when he performed a total (right) knee replacement. Both were 100% successful. I am grateful that he was able to restore my functioning to previous levels. My knee is better than it has been in many years. I also feel that since he is a sole practitioner, I get better and more personal care than at a clinic as so many are now.

Great experience !!!

Highly recommend. Entire office was great, beginning with Rachel. She listened and helped me work through things from appointments to insurance. Very organized, which helped me a lot. If there was a scheduling conflict, she always worked around it. Dr. Redfern listened to my concerns and addressed each one, which was great. Surgery went fine.

Dr. Redfern was a little difficult to get used to, but after that, I couldn't be happier! Very professional and great at what he does!!! Other than normal recovery I have no complaints with the knee replacement! I think it's actually better than ever right now!! Wish I'd would have done it sooner!!!!

Easy to talk to. Listened to my concerns and explained the pro's and cons of surgery. Office staff is amazing. Doesn't rush you in or out of the office, spends time to make sure all your questions are answered.

Very rude. He did a good job on my surgeries but his bedside manor is horrible. He also started releasing back to work after my work accident when I still could not get out of bed by myself, feed myself, dress myself, etc. When I asked him why he got mad and said I had one hand that worked and I could have sorted papers. It's obvious workers comp controls him. He's made my life hell.
Henderson, NV |
Dr Redfern took the time to listen to me and then order all the right test that finally showed that I need to have surgery to repair the function of both my shoulders. His office staff is very friendly and helpful in all the scheduling procedures.
