Yes I would. Visit was a follow-up. I arrived early, was taken to exam room, and Dr. Davidson entered shortly thereafter. He asked numerous questions, answered my questions, was pleased with progress (as was I), and we'll follow-up in a couple of months.

Telemedicine is definitely the way to go if you just need to talk to your doctor. So convenient! With Dr Davidson’s advice and physical therapy my knee pain has significantly decreased.

Terrible doctor. He has no patient empathy, and doesn't care about the patient's post-operative pain management.

Everything went as well as could be expected on a right shoulder that had significant damage. Dr Davidson was spot on in his diagnosis and the surgical process. His staff is well trained and very responsive to the issues dealing with my shoulder and the the post op questions that I had.

Early and taken directly to an examining room, but was kept waiting in a small closed door examining room (wearing a mask due to COVID19) for more than 30 minutes after the appointment time with no one even opening the door to check on me, an 81 year old male with hyper-tension. Walked out-unseen, untreated. Outside the office, walking down the hall a male nurse caught up to me to say "Sorry". Too late. This level of concern for a patient's welfare is unacceptable and inexcusable. Need another ortho doctor.

Dr Davidson was very nice manner and made me feel comfortable. He had a great listening ear and answered my questions. I felt that I just was not getting a firm recommendation of what would be the best way to proceed with my problem. I felt a bit confused and was second guessing myself as to why I was there, even though I have been in bad pain for quite a while and it was not getting any better...

Dr. Davidson is the absolute finest orthopedic surgeons I've met. I've come to know and trust him since my initial visit in October 2019 to discuss a total shoulder replacement. Dr. Davidson's kind and surgical expertise in total joint replacements put me at ease. On March 18, 2020, at the beginning of COVID-19, I had a total shoulder replacement. I had been suffering from EXCRUCIATING pain for a couple of years and my window for the procedure was NOW. After my shoulder replacement, the EXCRUCIATING pain was GONE! I couldn't believe how much better I felt, albeit, post-op pain which is to be expected. Dr. Davidson, you're my hero and I couldn't be more grateful for the excellent care form your staff and Medical Assistant. Dr. Davidson is also the team doctor for the Chicago Red Socks and that's impressive as well. Professional teams select the BEST surgeons for their athletes!

Dr Davidson has been very good with helping restore use of my knee. He listens and guides me in a direction that has given me pain relief. I am not back to normal but hopeful I am on the right track. Thanks to him for being there.

Dr. Davidson was the fourth ortho I visited due to a completely torn rotator cuff. The first three immediately wanted me to do a reverse shoulder replacement. Dr. Davidson said "let's try PT first." That was a year and a half ago when I could only lift my arm about 90 degrees. Today, still no surgery and my arm has COMPLETE mobility and almost 100% strength. Davidson is a rock star in his profession.

I saw Dr Davidson for a rotator cuff tear and he subsequently did a shoulder arthroscopy repair. From the first visit to the final post op visit, I knew I was being cared for by a caring and very competent surgeon. He is a good listener. He heard my priorities for care and helped me make decisions that were sound medical practice and were consistent with my priorities. The recovery was a challenge, but, less so because I was well prepared for everything by Dr. Davidson and his staff. The post op rehab OT was coordinated well between Cheryl and Dr. Davidson. I think it was a key factor in the great recovery I've made. I am 6 months out from surgery, pain free and more than satisfied with the functional return. It's getting hot and I am wearing sleeveless blouses and the scars are hardly visible. You won't know I had surgery. Could not ask for better. Highly Recommend.
