It is a pleasure to highly recommend Dr. John Reynolds. Both my husband and I have had surgical procedures (shoulder and knee) with Dr. Reynolds and both have had excellent outcomes.

Superior orthopedic surgeon. Dr. Reynolds has an excellent bedside manner. He is patient and thorough. He clearly explains what to expect before, during, and after surgery.

This may sound ridiculous, but within the last three years in our family circle six members of our family have been operated on by Dr. Reynolds. All were foot or knee surgeries. Obviously we think very highly of Dr. Reynolds, not only his surgical expertise but his integrity and personality. He has helped this family remedy a lot of misery.
Elaine Cutshaw, it's experiences like yours that really keep us motivated!

Tore my ACL and meniscus on January 3rd around 1:30pm. Was in Dr Reynolds office by 4:30 pm. Had surgery January 13. I began therapy on the 16th. Had some complications from doing too much at home exercises. Dr. Reynolds got me back on track after a second surgery 14 days after the first. Dr. Reynolds provided excellent care, and will be my choice for orthopedic care from now on.
Tim Russell, your wonderful feedback and rating mean a lot to us.

i went to see Dr. Reynolds after living with excruciating knee pain for almost a year, I could barely walk and I often would cry from the pain. I was not expecting much to be done when I went to see Dr. Reynolds but I call him my "Miracle Worker" now. After explaining what I was dealing with Dr. Reynolds ran test and found out the cause of my pain and set me up for surgery. Well since the day of surgery I have been knee pain free! Thank you Dr. Reynolds!

Dr. Reynolds is an excellent physician and surgeon. I would recommend Dr. Reynolds to anyone for any surgical procedure they might need. My torn rotator cuff surgery was very successful and my recovery and therapy were handed to my complete satisfaction.

Dr. Reynolds has done several surgeries on my left knee, the most recent one on Jan. 30, 2017. After having an MRI, he patiently explained what a torn meniscus was and how the surgery should fix the problem. I was walking the day of the surgery. He is very patient and easy to talk to. He explains everything thoroughly and answers all your questions. I couldn't be more pleased with the care I received from Dr. Reynolds and his staff. TOC also has an excellent therapy office next door.

Dr. Reynolds repaired my left knee in 2010 and I have had no issues with it. He repaired my right knee 12 days ago and the recovery is going well. I had full range of motion back within 2 days and have already started strengthening exercises in PT. I run 40 to 50 miles per week and expect to have a full recovery and return to my previous mileage. I would highly recommend Dr. Reynolds.

Dr. Reynolds has performed surgery on my shoulder (Rotator Cuff), repaired Meniscus tears in both knees, and replaced the right knee.
