Dr. Bobb took excellent care of my wrist fracture. He was efficient and friendly when he explained my options. I chose to fix it with surgery and he got me in the next morning to add a plate to my wrist.

I was treated for pain in my collar bone and shoulder area. X-ray's and MRI on shoulder were done but nothing on collar bone to sternum. I would have liked to have had an image on that area so I knew if there was a real problem there. Shoulder was the most likely cause of the pain and I was put on 6 weeks of physical therapy on the shoulder. I felt like most of this time was wasted. I was then given a shot where collar bone attaches to sternum and about 4 days later pain was mostly gone. Dr. Babb was very good at explaining the situation. Hoping that the pain will not return. Dr. Babb and his assistance were very helpful.

Dr. Babb didn't have to take me as a patient but he did, and he and his staff gave me the most honest, and comforting treatments. I was blown away by the way he went out if his way to make sure my quality of life was the best it could be. I recommend Dr. Babb to everyone who needs orthopedic care. He is professional with a GREAT sense of humor! Thank you for all you have done for me.

Dr. Babb was attentive and listened to my concerns and answered all my questions and performed my wrist surgery in a timely manner. His followup and all of his PAs did a great job and everything went well. When I am ready for shoulder repair I will definitely see him and his group again.

Dr. Babb treated me well and fixed my torn meniscus. They scheduled my surgery around my schedule and I felt better the day I walked out of surgery. Tim, my physical therapist did a great job as well. Very knowledgeable.

Dr. Babb is professional, knowledgeable, efficient, and friendly. He took me on as a patient after another doctor told me my rotator cuff and bicep were torn beyond repair. Not so, Dr. Babb! I’m six months post surgery and am doing wonderfully!

Dr. Babb did an amazing job with my mom. She had a very complicated and complex fracture in her foot. It healed slowly but surely and she's back to her normal routine. She has no pain or discomfort whatsoever. Thank You Dr. Babb! You've taken good care of her several times now!

I have had two hip surgeries with Dr. Babb, and with both surgeries he explained the procedures very well and answered any questions I had. His assistants were very helpful, also. I would highly recommend him as an orthopedic surgeon!

Based on my experience with rotator cuff repair I highly recommend Dr. Babb. His caring attitude, expertise, and fantastic staff made this difficult time much easier. I really had no idea what to expect but Dr. Babb and his staff took good care of me. I had nothing but great experiences at both the surgery center and the doctor office/rehabilitation center. Should I have any future needs I will insist that Dr. Babb treat me.

Referred by family doctor following months of physical therapy related to accident. Took over 40 mins to fill out med history on their computers. Then another hour before I saw him for like 5 mins and he seemed to have no clue of full reason I was there. They didn't have my xrays that I was told they would get from my doctor either and just took more. Didn't seem to care that I am in horrible pain even having to drive to that appointment. Made me feel like I was a med school cadaver
