I live in Centerville, my name is Robert Downer I first was referred to Doctor Willis and P.A.Trent Hiles in September 2016. Doctor Willis immediately diagnosed my shoulder problems and operated with two tears, six bone spurs, and a clavicle shaving done.Today while my body is of a 56 year old man my shoulder is a teenager he did such a thorough Job. I received personal calls from Trent Hiles due to the fact he is so committed and thorough. Doctor Willis at a restaurant checked on me, the best

I received a right shoulder replacement March, 2016. The surgery went excellent, it was a breeze. Rehap at Spaulding also went very well. It's great to have my shoulder back. Looking forward to having my left shoulder taken care of in the next six months! Dr. John Willis is by far, the most caring orthopedist. He treated me with the utmost kindness. From a very, very happy patient. My Deepest Thanks, Martha Jane Roberts

Dr. Willis replaced my ACL. From the start, he was professional, kind, and confident. He took every opportunity to educate me about the procedure and made sure that I had no outstanding questions. I would recommend him to anyone that is considering this procedure.

After my initial visit Dr. Willis diagnosed my problem by reviewing X-rays and MRI to ensure the partial knee replacement he suggested was the proper procedure for me. All information passed to me by the doctor was accurate. I am a very active person. I was walking on my knee the same day of surgery. I was skating in four weeks, playing forward in hockey in 6 weeks, playing goalie in eight weeks and riding my bicycle in that 6 week time period also. All the therapist were great.

I chose Dr John Willis to perform my ACL reconstruction with a hamstring graft and I couldn't ask for better results. My knee is almost back at 12 week and i am ready to hike and run. My knee is strong and has full range which I was so worried about. He discussed all my options with me and answered all my questions along the way. I also met is PA Trent who was also very helpful on the few appts we had and explained the surgery fully to me. I enjoyed my full experience and the great follow up.

Only ever saw his PA even though I asked to see the doctor. Current PA - Trent Hiles is a total joke-arrogant, disrespectful, throws your age in your face. Problem with Left Knee a month ago and Trent said you have arthritis, so it doesn't matter if there's anything else wrong with the knee and he kept trying to sell me a knee replacement. Went to Brigham and Womens yesterday-knee was correctly diagnosed as a Grade 2 MCL tear. The only thing I'd go to CC Ortho for is my regular Hyalgan shots.
