Dr. Worthen replaced my left knee August 2018. He was very professional, kind and took the time to answer my questions. He also has an excellent PA who gives wonderful and successful shots in my other knee. I will be going back this summer to have my right knee done. The surgery isn't a cake walk but Dr. Worthen sure makes things less scary and bearable.

I met Dr. Worthen for the first time this week after being frustrated with other physicians who had exhausted their skills in my orthopedic needs. Dr. Worthen was very patient with me and very understanding to my questions and concerns. He made me feel like I wasn't so easy to give up on & that there was hope and direction for fixing issues with my knee injury that other doctors couldn't find a solution to. I am definitely looking forward to working with him more and continuing my care with him
