I am a cynic and a control freak. When I needed a hip replacement, I did my homework. Dr Philips name was given to me by a life friend at Harvard Medical school. I found out that Dr Philips had only one questionable review. I went to Braintree and spoke to the nurses involved. They explained the situation, and I went with all the other reviews. The operation was perfect. I just had him do my other hip last week. The combination of his skill and New England Baptists care is exceptional. The best!

Dr. Phillips professionalism, knowledge, compassion and bedside manner is un-matched. Dr. Phillips appointments are thorough and not rushed. He communicates his recommendations clearly and I am confident with all of Dr. Phillips treatment recommendations. I am blessed to have found such a wonderful Surgeon.

I am a seventy years old female. Stay clear of this doctor. He spent a total of seven minutes with me and misdiagnosed my knee problem. He told me, "that some elderly people in this world do not have access to medical help and have to live with the pain". A second doctor explained everything about my right knee and has me scheduled for a knee replacement. I do think Dr. Phillips made his wrong diagnosis because he was running 40-60 behind schedule and wanted finish his day on time.

Dr. Phillips is the most amazing Dr. I ever had. His skills in surgery are unbelievable. My whole experience in having my hip replaced was so well handled from the staff in his office to the staff at the hospital (N.E. Baptist Hosp - Boston, MA) to the after care, the rehab, the experience of walking again. I was on my feet 4 hours after surg to get the blood flowing again and walking the corridor. Thank you Dr. Phillips.

Dr. Phillips replaced both my knees on January 6, 2016. He did a superb job. I can't say enough good about him. I am dancing again after nine years of pain. I am so grateful for the fabulous medical care.

I am currently 53 years old and had a Total Knee Replacement (TKR) done by Dr. Phillips at NE Baptist Hospital. The surgery went without a hitch in a couple of hours. He is quick, precise, and to the point, and is the best at his task. After the surgery, he was caring and quick to inform about the recovery that lies ahead. He and his staff are easy to reach when any issue may arise!

Dr phillips is one of a kind! I just had dbl hip repacement on march 2 and went home on the 5th!! I am a good patient i guess but he is an amazing surgeon, im walking without croutches day 7! So what else can i tell you? Ali

His method of hip replacement caused very little pain and a very quick recuperation. I had both done at the same time and was walking unassisted within 2 weeks. I used very little pain medication after the surgery. I think I may have had the best surgeon at the best hospital for hip replacements in our area.
