I saw Dr. Aldridge for sudden onset of hip pain. Dr A. was uninterested in hearing any history; his first sentence when he came in the room was that I had degenerative arthritis and needed a total hip replacement. I got a copy of my x rays and showed it to a radiologist who said I had only mild arthritis. I went to another surgeon who confirmed this and diagnosed bursitis. He gave a cortisone shot and recommended PT. I now have no pain. I don't recommend nor trust Dr. Aldridge.

HORRIBLE PATIENT CARE...HORRIBLE DOCTOR...DOES NOT CARE, STILL TRYING TO FATHOM WHY HE BECAME A "DOCTOR", IT IS NOT BECAUSE HE CARES. HE IS SO CALLOUS TO PATIENTS PROBLEMS. I SPENT 1 HR AND 47 MIN WAITING TO SEE HIM FOR A NEW PATIENT VISIT (FOR AN ACCIDENT). HE SPENT ALL BUT 7 MINUTES WITH ME......PLEASE, TAKE MY ADVICE,DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME....GO TO ANOTHER ORTHOPEDIC DOCTOR, WHERE THEY CARE!
Waited one and a half hours past appointment time. No acknowledgement from doctor. I had to ask questions about my condition instead of being told what my problem was. I saw him 3 years ago and sent me to a pain specialist. I told pain specialist that condition is only tolerated by hydrocodone and wanted to explore surgery option. Aldridge wants me now to go back to pain specialist to run same tests I had done before for what he calls experimental surgery not covered by insurance. Then ducks out

My experience is like the others! We as patients are told the risks of surgery. If the surgery comes out ok then the doctor gets all the kudos. In my case it did not turn out all that good. The surgery did help where i originally had my issue. However my back is now hurting where my surgery was performed. I'm not blaming him for the surgery results but for his attitude toward me. It seems to be my problem and I can go back to work in pain. In other words go back to your primary dr.

Dr. Aldridge has terrible inter personal skills -- he doesn't explain conditions, is abrupt and generally rude. My appointment with him was also a total waste, he simply referred me to another orthopaedist for a clear orthopaedic issue. Even though he offered me nothing helpful during the appointment, he still made clear that I had to pay my copay and that he was going to bill my insurance. A total waste. Heed others advice, and seek another orthopaedic practitioner.

Since having children, I have had alot of pain in my lower back. I finally decided to schedule an appointment with Dr. Aldridge after attending a lecture in Williamsburg. When I came in for my appointment, the staff was so friendly and helpful. I recently had a SI Fusion and am already feeling so much better.

My husband, a stroke survivor, suffered a fall and compression fracture of the back. after admission to the hospital, Dr Aldrich was recommended to him. After a full day's work, he performed Kyphoplasty on the T12 vertabra, a miracle procedure that allowed my husband to come home for Christmas pain free. With two previous fractures, he spent a week in the hospital and three weeks in rehab, in pain every day. We both highly recommend him, and are most thankful that he was there for us.

My dad, who received a medical procedure from Dr. Aldridge for a torn meniscus, ended in a severe infection. After the surgery my dad kept telling Dr. Aldridge that something was not right. He was in excruciating pain and his knee was very swollen. My dad told him and his nurse practitioner several times that they needed to help him and that something was wrong. He ignored my dad
