    My experience with Dr. Babb was a wonderful one!!!! I had fallen and broke my elbow and pushed the bone up to where it wasn't supposed to be and I got in the next day to see him and he took ex-rays and them schedule me for surgery the next day!! Well, after a plate and 6 screws in my elbow, it was fixed!! Dr. Babb did such a great job on my arm that now I have full use of my elbow!!! And you can hardly see my scar!! Thank you, Dr. Babb for your expertise and putting me back together!!

    I had ankle surgery with him a few years ago. Did a great job explaining the procedure and the surgery was a complete success. Office staff was friendly and very helpful. I would come back to see him again.

    I feel like he was too busy and it didn't seem like he read my file from other doctor because he would repeat questions that I already answered and he would have known because in file.

    I believe that because I was a self pay that I was kept from having treatment that was needed . I believe that even if it was obvious to the dr that I needed surgery he would have told me I didn't just because he knew I didn't have insurance. He didn't care that I would never have full use of my hand or full range of motion even though my profession requires the main functions of my hands. I believe he didn't care that it would make my profession hard to do and my work hard if at all possible do
