    What I liked the most about the Mid-America Orthopedics were the individuals in physical therapy. I saw Dr. Babb a total of 2 times (first and last appointments). This does not give much interaction with him to pass on to friends and family. Thank you for asking.

    I was pleased to get an appointment quickly for an urgent need in my knee. Dr Babb was thorough in his exam and explaining what was going on. He also put in place a MRI after an x-ray and explained my options with no pressure. I have confidence in him also as a skilled and caring doctor.

    I fractured my right shoulder and was very pleased with the results of my treatment.

    I was sent to Dr. Babb for a work related injury by the insurance carrier. First off, he couldn't find anything so he sent me to another doctor in his office for a diagnosis. He performed a hip scope & afterwards my pain worsen along with other difficulties. I got a second opinion and was told that Babb removed too much bone from hip. I was forced to undergo another surgery for a THA. Once active but now dealing with chronic pain from nerve damage and mobility decreased. Untrustworthy doctor!!!

    Dr Babb is very caring and really listens to your concerns. His goal is to get you back to doing what you enjoy and need to be doing. I've been a patient of his for two different injuries and highly recommend him to others.

    Dr. Babb is a great doctor. He is very attentive, respectful, kind, and thorough. He replaced my ACL, repaired my meniscus, and scraped some arthritis off the inside of my knee. They were great with pain management, work forms and PT is available right there in the office.

    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.
    in Wichita, KS |
    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
