    Dr Headrick did my knee replacements. Because of unknown sources of pain he had to replace the right knee 3 times. I had given up hope of ever being pain free, but not Dr Headrick. He continued encouraging me and working to find a solution. He finally decided that my sympathetic nervous system was messed up due to a card table falling on my right shin. After a spinal lumbar block my pain level dropped almost 7 points. I will always be grateful for his care and concern.

    I had a partial knee replacement 3 months ago. Note I am a 55 year old man, active and climbs ladders for a living. Generally after 2 months I returned to work (climbing ladders) after 3 months I have been able to bike, walk as far as I want and recently have climbed as many as 13 roofs a day. I have some minor soreness and minor stiffness, but feels much better than when I went in for surgery. This doctor is the bomb. My advise is- if you don't ask your body for anything it wont give it to you.

    Dr. HEADRICK has poor bed side manners. I find him to be very rude. He did not explain what was wrong with my knee. I got more information from his wonderful PA. If he was not my only option, I would definitely switch doctors. I have to wait about 2 and a half hours EVERY TIME before being seen. Very long wait time to be seen by a rude doctor!

    Dr. Jeff Headrick and his staff are wonderful. Everyone is so friendly and accommodating. He has preformed six surgeries and I'm heading in for number seven. He has me good as new. I recommend Dr. Headrick to anyone that needs joints fixed.

    Dr Headrick and his staff, especially Julia's and Cassie are amazing! They were professional, patient, helpful and compassionate. I have never been treated so well by a hospital or physician's staff. The staff at Grace were equally outstanding. I had a full knee replacement and was so pleased with my treatment that I am actually excited to get the second one done. My activity level has already increased dramatically. Dr Headrick, his staff and Grace have been an answer to my prayers!

    I can not say enough about Dr. Headrick! This wonderful sweet caring man gave me my life back after being in so much pain for nearly six years. I had bone on bone hip pain and Dr. Headrick did a complete hip replacement on me using the anterior approach. I could not believe what a difference it made so quickly after surgery. I could kick myself for waiting so long to do something. You will not find a more compassionate doctor than Dr. Jeff Headrick.

    First you can't see the physician you have to see the PA then wait another week to see the doctor. The PA talked like I should have a hip replacement done as soon as possible. When we did get to see Dr. Headrick he told me he would not do surgery until I'd lost 50 lbs. My hip joint already had a vascular necrosis and I could barely get around. He said of many things that it would be too hard on him to have to do surgery. I would NOT recommend him. He and his PA should be on the same page.
