Dr. Locker and his team were great with my left hip replacement. They were able to fit my surgery in way ahead of the expected time. I'm grateful for that. He was friendly and answered all of my questions. His team was helpful. I'm grateful!
Dear Butch: On behalf of Dr. Locker and staff, thank you for your feedback! We are happy to hear your left hip replacement was a success. And we hope you can get back to the things you love doing with your new hip! Sincerely, Team TOI

I was in excruciating pain. Knee issues. I called Dr. Locker and got an appointment quickly and into surgery days later. The staff were very friendly. The facilities very clean. Dr. Locker was terrific and my Recovery has been speedy indeed. Dr. Locker has also done full hip replacements on my husband and half dozen friends. Everyone had terrific experiences and healed quickly and with no complications. Thank you, Dr Locker!!

Wonderful and skilled physician. The success of my hip replacement has been a recommendation to all my friends. Several have asked who was my doctor.

I had hurt my knee in a fall about 6 weeks prior. It was better but still I had some issues with it and so I went for a consult. I took an older MRI and older x-rays with me. I had others done in Dr. Locker's office that day. He compared them all, did a physical exam & gave me his diagnosis and suggestions for treatment none of which involved surgery and, therefore, did not bring any more income to him. We discussed those options. I felt he cared about my outcome. I highly recommend him.
