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!

Dr. Babb and his staff took care of me quickly. I felt like an important person every time I was in the office - whether it was for a dr visit or therapy. The staff was great.

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

Fixed my injury, explained all to my husband (caregiver) post-op. The staff, from nurses to PTs to front desk are all top-notch. The later in the day my appointment with Dr. was, the more likely I'd have a longer wait. I think because they're willing to take time with each patient and address all concerns as they did with me. Didn't always see Dr, but his PA's are knowledgeable. Calls to office during treatment were returned quickly. If I break another bone I'll hope he's available to me.

My daughter recommended him. He set my granddaughter's arm. She raved about how compassionate and patient he was. He went above and beyond with her which made me more comfortable. I have been fortunate to experience his compassion first hand through my own injury. Many thanks to both Physican's Assistants , Crystal, Steve and all who helped me with this injury. His team is exceptional with their superb personable skills. Their customer service is extraordinary.

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 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!!!
