Patient Comments (4)
in Atlanta, GA |
Dr. York is fantastic! He was quick to diagnose my injuries (for which I had seen several other doctors unsuccessfully), and they healed immediately upon following his instructions for rehab. Very grateful for Dr. York & his staff. Great people and great environment.
Stone Mountain, GA |
Dr. York had repaired my fractured tib/fib back in 2007/2008 as the on-call doctor. He had a great bed-side manner and was very personable. When my knee got to the point of having to do something, I checked and he did knee repairs and total knee replacements. Made an appointment less than one week out and had a great office visit with his PA, himself and his assistant, who was the same from 2008! Cut right to the chase for replacement as there was no cartilage left in the knee. Surgery scheduled
in Naples, FL |
Dr. York is of that rare breed that excels in clinical knowledge, expertise, and sound judgement. He explains and describes the clinical picture, options for intervention, and recommendations for the most efficacious and least likely to result in post treatment complications. His honesty and compassionate "bedside manner" are exemplary, not so commonly found among physicians of such high caliber. I have worked with physicians and surgeons for my entire nursing career, he is top drawer!
in Alpharetta, GA |
Botched my knee replacement surgery, had to have it redone. I will never walk without pain. He referred me to someone to fix his mistake and I never heard from him again. Couldn't get through to him post surgery. His staff rolled their eyes at me when I went in post surgery and said I couldn't put weight on my leg until they saw the x-ray. Atmosphere of the office is patients are complainers and we do you a favor by letting you be out patient.
