Went to see him about elbow and shoulder pain. His office was very organized and he had x-ray machines there and had the data before he saw me. He listened and spent time with me, yet kept the visit moving. Great staff!

The best
Dr. Loging is the best around. I have gone to many Ortho docs trying to get my hips better. He has been the first one to succeed with improving my situation. He is smart, kind, and skilled. I drive about an hour away from my home just to see him. I highly recommend his skills no matter what your ortho needs are.

I know a number of people that have seen Dr. Loging and his team over the years. I have consistently heard nothing but the highest of praise for him. Having visited with Dr. Loging this week for a knee issue, I can now echo those sentiments. From beginning to end, he and his team were wonderful. Efficient, thoughtful, and knowledgeable. I highly recommend Dr. Loging and his team!

My husband had a visit with Dr. Loging on May 21 for a final check of his left knee replacement surgery. While there we scheduled his right knee replacement. Dr. Loging has replaced both my husbands hip and in September it will be both his knees. He has replaced my right knee and done carpal tunnel surgery on both my hands. There is no one else we will go to. He is the best orthopedic surgeon around. The wait time was 10 minutes to see him and another 13 minutes in the room. His staff is very professional and super nice.

No help with after hours call. Told he didn't think the injection done in their office was causing my husbands problem. Was told you can go to the ER if you want to, but he didn't feel like his excruciating headache was from the injection. Long story short my husband spent 11 days in hospital. And has been out of work for over 2 months.

My primary care doctor wanted me to see Dr. Loging with left hip pain I cannot thank her enough, Dr. Loging has to to be one of a kind he did a total hip replacement on me and the professionalism of he and his staff was the best, and Newberry Hospital staff were also, he prayed with me before surgery and that was a great comfort to me as anxiety was a problem, my husband and I could not believe that it has gone so well, but that is tribute to what a great and caring doctor he is.

I'm a disabled veteran, I was neglected by Army medicine for years having injuries pile up. Dr. Loging has been the best surgeon/physician I've ever dealt with. I was also a Health Administrative Officer in the military, so I had daily interactions with many Physicians. Dr. Loging is a man of faith and that clearly shows when he's taking care of his patients. He has done surgeries on both my wife and I. I'm getting ready to have my second surgery with Dr. Loging as I'm feeling much better from my first surgery and looking forward to the next one. Before I met Dr. Loging, I was ready to give up from the pain, Dr. Loging truly makes a difference in his patients’ lives.

Dr. Loging's has got to be one of the best doctors, I have ever had. His bedside manner is very caring and understanding. He really listens to you and prays with you before each surgery. He has operated on both my neck and shoulder and I currently receive ESI injections. When he moved his main practice from Laurens, to Chapin it now required an hour drive, but I'd travel to see him just about anywhere to receive the excellent care and treatment he offers.

After doing the research for an orthopedic doctor, I knew Dr. Loging was the doctor for me. I went to my first appointment knowing I needed one total hip replacement and 2 knees. Turns out both hips needed replacement. I've had one replaced and it's now my "good hip" and have the 3 month wait for my next surgery. Dr. Loging is very straightforward and interested in appropriate rehabilitation before proceeding to the next surgery. That's saying alot about a doctor and he has a no nonsense approach to pain medications. I appreciate that as well. He's a Christian and will pray for you on your big day. So if you are looking for the best, go no further. My surgery has stared my pathway to becoming bionic. ??
