How I wish we had known of Dr. Kilgore before the 2 surgeries I had on one knee! Things are slow because of what I've gone through but so pleased with results so far. He is exceptionally patient, honest and caring. I liked him being upfront and all his associates I rate as 10 or above.. His nurses are so caring and when I call they answer. God Bless them all.

Excellent experience with Dr. Kilgore and his team. Had a right hip replaced three weeks ago. It was virtually pain-free after the procedure. Able to transfer from walker to cane on day five. Walked into my two week office visit post surgery with no cane. They said I was doing excellent. I Just have to take it easy for another couple of weeks before get back into my routine. I would highly recommend this orthopedic surgeon and his team.

Dr. Kilgore was a very nice man and explained everything very clearly. The office staff was very efficient and even though it appeared when I walked into the waiting room that there were alot of people waiting, I was called back right at my scheduled appointment time. Had additional x-rays taken, met with Dr. Kilgore, had cortisone shots in both knees and was on my way an hour later.

Dr. Kilgore did a full right knee replacement many years ago and i have not experienced any problems at all. I was so pleased with the outcome I scheduled an appointment with him to see if he could help me with my back pain. He recommended Dr. PIGEON who did a magnificent operation. This group is a fully functional team and would recommend to anyone.

Dr. Kilgore and staff are fantastic. He did a total knee replacement for me on April 27, 2016. I can walk with a walker very easily and soon will not even need assistance. A different surgeon replaced my left knee 2 years ago and I still have problems. I highly recommend Dr. Kilgore.

Great experience with Dr Kilgore. I felt comfortable and at ease. He explained to me the cause and treatment for my issue. Also his PA Chris, is the same way. Puts you at ease and is very easy to speak with.
