I have seen Dr. Lamberson for many issues through the years, as has my family. He is very engaged and listens and formulates a plan after thoughtful consideration taking into account your level of activity and desires. His surgical outcomes are super.

Dr Lamberson is an excellent doctor. He repaired a broken elbow last year, then did a 2nd surgery to remove the hardware that held it in place while healing. This week I went to him to check on my 3 yr old hip replacement - It wasn't done by Ortho, however that Dr is no longer a preferred provider for me, and Dr. Lamberson was kind enough to check it for me. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Dr. Lamberson is the best! He is always there for my husband and me. He has performed knee & shoulder replacement surgery on my husband and knee and rotator cuff surgery on me. Very knowledgable, experienced and easy to get an appointment, great bedside manner and time tested....been seeing him since early 2001! His staff is excellent and just as caring. Too bad he can't be cloned so as to help more people.

Experienced, calm, honest, friendly, skilled but conservative doctor and surgeon (meaning he is very good but won't rush to operate unless it's absolutely necessary), protective of his patients and a very good guy. He was always available after my shoulder surgery if I had a question or needed help. I'm a well-informed, overeducated patient who researches and second-guesses everything about my healthcare, but I totally trust Dr. Lamberson's decisions about my surgery and recovery.

Simply the best. Dr. Lamberson has performed 3 surgeries for me (knee & both rotator cuffs. I wouldn't trust anyone else. Since we moved to the North GA Mountains, I travel over 2 hours to keep him as my ortho.

I have been a patient of Dr Lamberson for over three years. He (with his staff) has replaced both of my knees and corrected back problems when needed. He, along with his staff, is incredibly response and takes all the time needed to address my concerns when raised. I would not hesitate to recommend him to others.

Used Dr. L for both shoulders, same superb results both times. Hopefully I won't need to use him again. As a side note.... Some wait times at Austel office varied from 5 to 90 minutes.
