Dr. Adkison and his PA Betsy were great! Straight forward, no nonsense, professionals. For the other reviewer with the shoulder problem... Dr. Adkison just specializes in hands these days. While he used to do more general Orthopedic surgery, he stopped probably a decade ago just to focus on...more

Dr Adkison did a great job on my surgery. However the staff were quite rude. I suffered a terrible amount of pain, much more than I expected. But the dr.'s skill is unquestionable. I just wish the staff were kinder and more caring.

waited months to see Dr for followup on shoulder pain after surgery. Dr brushed me off and sent me to a colleague with a 4 week later appointment. Will never return to this practice. I overlooked the receptionist issues, and the scheduler lying to me two times, in order to see the Dr.
