Learn about Dr. Hurt

Care Philosophy

Dr. Hurt's philosophy is patient-centered. He takes great care to address all of a patient's questions, to spend adequate time with each one and to treat each patient with respect as an individual rather than as a file number. A patient entrusts their body to a surgeon and therefore has a right to have the diagnosis and treatment plan explained in terms he or she can understand. The patient and physician can then determine the right course given his/her unique circumstances and goals.

Dr. Hurt is amazing! Was taken to the room very quickly, and saw Dr. Hurt quickly! Diagnosed my issue and provided a treatment. Within 1 day after appointment I was already improving! He explained my diagnosis in layman a terms and the initial treatment he recommended and explained what the next steps would be if needed. Will definitely recommend Dr. Hurt to my friends and family.

Dr Hurt has helped me in healing painful hip bursitis. Thank you Dr Hurt and your team for serving Marble Falls. Margy Cesario

Love Dr. Hurt. He is a very caring and kind man. I had hip replacement and it went so smoothly and I was on my feet in no time. (Seriously, like 2 weeks later I was going anywhere I wanted to go).
Dr Hurt has been good through the whole process however I cannot say the same for his office staff. They do not seem to care about me or answering any of my questions. Will not return phone calls and always acts like I am nothing but a bother. Cannot even get my surgery scheduled so I still lay here in pain.
Dr Hurt performed my surgery last year. He is a wonderful doctor.

Dr. Hurt spends less than 5 minutes with you and does not listen to what you have to say. Horrible patient care. I share the same sentiments as the other 1-star reviews here, stay away!
in Austin, TX |
Horribly uncaring impatient egotistical man who will overtalk you when you are trying to give him a medical history or explain the problem. Amazing lack of care, concern, only interested in getting you out the door so he can get the next co-pay in his office. Waste of time and beyond no help. Ignored the results of an MRI and had me walking on a broken knee for days. What is up with that? Not just bad care but caused more damage and pain by ignoring his basic duty to patient care. stay away!
in Georgetown, TX |
Don't let his name fool you! Dr. Hurt is not only a great doctor, he is a great person. He replaced both of my knees within a six month period, and gave me my life back after ten years of painful misery. His skills and knowledge are current, and he only recommends knee replacements when the patient is ready. He is compassionate, articulate and top notch across the board. I am 100% satisfied with Dr. Hurt's care both before and after my surgeries.He always takes the time to answer questions.

My experience with Dr. Hurt was horrible. Neither he nor his staff really listened to what I had to say and seemed to be uncaring about the amount of pain I was suffering.
