Dr. Carothers was professional and informative. I found it extremely difficult to get a call back from Marisol to schedule a surgery date. After not hearing back from her, I spoke with other female staff member who was rude and told me that Marisol would call if and when she had time.
Marco Lucero, we pride ourselves on providing exceptional service, so we are disappointed to hear that your visit with us was anything less than satisfactory. We would like the opportunity to address your concerns. Please reach out to use directly at (505) 724-4300 when you have a chance. Thank you, and we look forward to hearing from you.

I had hip replacement performed by Dr Carothers on December 29, 2016. I thoroughly researched physicians who perform this surgery and none rated higher than Dr. Carothers. I am very pleased with the outcome of my surgery and highly recommend this surgeon.
Julia Marks, thank you for leaving this detailed feedback about your experience with Joshua T. Carothers, MD. We appreciate the time you took to give us your recommendation and we will be sure to let Dr. Carothers know..

Excellent results from my total knee replacement a year ago (April 2016). I was very happy with my choice of practice and physician. Dr. Carothers specializes in knees and has seen it all; his sense of confidence helped to carry me through, although the surgery had added complications due to the degree of arthritic deformity in the knee. After the first two weeks, I was able to begin enjoying life again, and I only regretted that it took me so long to find Dr. Carothers. Great staff, too!
Connie, thank you for leaving this detailed feedback about your experience with Joshua T. Carothers, MD. We strive to give the best patient experience and medical care possible.

Clear and concise communication from my first visit through surgery and follow up. All went as hoped for and Dr. Carothers' entire team performed flawlessly. Pain management and recovery were both significantly better than two previous joint replacements. Two months out and the knee is pain free. I'm back hiking, biking and can even knee.
in Albuquerque, NM |
Dr. Carothers made me feel totally comfortable in my decision to have my hip replacement done. I truly felt that he had a true concern for my well being. He had the experience and knowledge to perform a VERY successful surgery despite my having a below knee amputation. I have not felt this good since 1986. It truly has been the best decision I have made.
