For an appt. with Dr. DeVitt we were made to wait 50 minutes. When I went out front to ask how much longer it would be, the staff said we were next and that they would call him. 10 minutes later the Dr. walks in and said what's the problem? The appointment was to discuss the results of a bonescan that said "fractured prosthetic" which along with the 2 years worth of continued pain after a total hip replacement was concerning to us. Dr. DeVitt was rude, arrogant and condescending in the extreme! When I told him we (I was there with my 70+ father) didn't appreciate being kept waiting with no apology or explanation, I was told I must not know how important and busy Orthopedic Surgeons are...he then went on to recommend that my dad have his rod replaced with a longer rod even though there was no diagnostic testing that supported that was the proper move. Older reviews show Dr. DeVitt to be good, but this is not my experience or opinion. I would never recommend him!

My advice, BE WARY... This office serves many doctors. Dr Devitt is only in one day a week. Attention to patient care, including scripts, is left to interns and office staff and is lacking. My original surgery date was cancelled by Dr. Devitt; I was not notified by the office. It was rescheduled a month later. I was sent home the day after surgery with 3 scripts for pain meds and instructions to begin home therapy for 2-3 weeks, then outpatient therapy. I had 4 major muscle spasms that first week home. My husband called, only to get none returned. I finally had to go by ambulance back to the hospital for 4 days. There, I learned I had a dvt below my knee that Dr. Devitt knew about but didn’t inform me. It was recommended to me to go to an inpatient rehab, and once there their doctor inquired about what muscle relaxer I had been given; I had received none in the hospital, nor had I been given scripts for any upon going home. My whole recovery has been delayed...

If you're looking for a great surgeon, Dr. Devitt is the one for you. He replaced both my hip and knee and I look forward to having my other ones done too.

Dr. Devitt takes his time and never rushed me to have surgery. I was hesitant about having my first hip replaced and made sure that I exhausted all other options before going straight to surgery. When I was ready, he was right there with me. It made me feel great knowing I had a doctor that truly cared.

I was prompted to leave a review after seeing the reviews online. Dr. Devitt is wonderful. I had both my hips replaced and he was very patient with me before and after both surgeries. I am doing great since this and I highly recommend him.

Surgical FACTORY. I wrongly assumed I would be with my son until he was under. Good practice would be to inform in advance--not give the anesthesia WHILE telling me to leave. When I questioned, they rushed me into the hall; when I sternly said I would wait in the hall, they raised their voices--3 of them talking to me at once. When I shushed them as I left (worried loud voices would stress my son), I received a HUGE GLARE from the loudest. There were other signs they were rushed as well.

I met Dr. Devitt in January of 2017 for knee replacement surgery. I was very impressed with how he explained the X-rays to me and had a model if the knee replacement components and how they worked together-also- what to expect after surgery with pain management. I had the first knee done in Feb 2017, the second in April 2017, his personalized care was outstanding, I am very Happy with Dr.Devitt. He puts lot pride in his work and pays attention to the details to make sure my legs were straight.

He is the best surgeon that I have ever had. Dedicated and perfectly rebuilt my entire pelvis and hip. I am walking better than I have in years. I and other top doctors thought that I may not walk again, but Dr. DeVitt developed a state of the art plan specifically for me. I am so grateful everyday that I am running around and able to do everything so easily for the first time in so long.

Office staff was extremely rude on a couple of occasions. I was not allowed to make any follow up appts. with Dr. Devitt unless all outstanding balances was paid in full. Office staff refused to leave messages for Dr. Devitt on my behalf as I needed my temporary handicap car tag renewed. The front office staff said that my hip replacement surgery was past due and that they would not renew the form for a handicap tag. My hip replacement surgery had been postponed due to an infection.
