Dr. John King is a lifesaver. He is well respected in Children's Hospital and a known leader in the orthopedic industry and a pioneer in the scoliosis surgery procedure.

Dr.King is amazing.He ttys getting along with kids plus the staff are really nice.My son had an overuse of knee and we went to a couple doctors and all of them said nothing was wrong.When we went for our final try to see if the other doctors are right and luckily we got dr,king.If i haven't had the cast my son would have had surgery with a nail down his bone.I highly suggest Dr.king and his staff and all their kindness.

This man ruined my life. I had several reconstructive operations on his recommendation, I wish I'd never let him touch me. He, to this day, was the most horrific person I'd ever encountered & would never listen to anything I had to say ABOUT MY OWN BODY. He was threatening, intimidating, rough. He had to REDO surgical procedures, even then couldn't correct the issues he caused. He is loud, abusive and frightening. His staff confirms it, if they stay employed. RUN, I WISH I did because now I cant
