This is my second time having Dr.Larkin as a physician. Even though it was 3 years ago, he recalled my former condition and was able to pinpoint the problem. He’s an excellent physician.

Dr Larkin is a quack. He kept telling me he went to school in new haven which is where Yale is located. He did his internship there he was not a student. I was sent for an IME through workers comp not by my choice. He was not concerned about talking about his fake education then proceeded to do a 30 second exam and then looked at X-rays and said I think you need an MRI of your back. I was there for my hip and I have never had back pain before. This is why he has been fired from so many practices

I had shoulder surgery I August 2016. Still in pain. After repeated visits with shots and steroids nothing helped. So disappointed with this office. They worried more about getting my 40.00 co pay. Never going back

Paid out of my own pocket $1500 for an IME. Thought this doctor was listening to my health concerns and performing correct evaluation on my lower back and numbness in my left leg. When I received the report from him, found many discrepancies in his report beside the wrong leg. Would not recommend this doctor to anyone.

Dr. John Larkin is an incredible Orthopaedic Surgeon. He is receptive, professional, and very personal. His patients love him. His staff is wonderful and they enjoy working with he, Sarah Bills NP and Avery Kondike PA-C. Avery and Sarah treat their ptients as well on a caring level. The experience at commonwealth orthopedic at the chancellor location is top of the line. I would recommend them.
