Dr Jurist and his staff are very friendly and professional. He did my labrum and rotator cuff surgery and so far am very happy with the procedure. He has great bedside manor and always explains thing where I could/can understand. Will recommend him to anyone needing a wonderful orthopedic surgeon
in Lufkin, TX |
Great doctor and great staff. Dr. Jurist was able to fully explain what was going on with my knee in very easy to understand terms. Dr. Jurist is going to do what is right for the patient and not just simply suggest surgery.
in Nacogdoches, TX |
From the time I called, the process was smooth and timely. There are no long waits on uncomfortable chaos, staff is knowledgeable and professional as well as friendly. Dr. Jurist is a wonderful listener and does not suggest options or meditation that is not warranted. He explained throughly what was happening with my wrist and the best plan for me. I have a medical background and I was very pleased overall!
in Huntington, Texas |
The staff and Dr. Jurist are excellent providers. They are very thorough and caring. I had knee replacement surgery. He did a great job.
in Nacogdoches, TX |
Prompt appointment, very little wait time at office. He had already reviewed my health information and x-rays, blood work, and MRI before coming into room to visit with me. He was courteous, knowledgeable and answered all my questions. We are fortunate to have this physician in our community.

I would like to thank you for every thing you fine for me in my time of need I am greatful for it all and will recommend you to any body again thanks

My experience with Dr. Jurist was excellent. I suffered from tennis elbow for almost 2 years. Since the surgery, my arm is 100 percent better. Thank you so much !
in Nacogdoches, TX |
Dr. Jurist and his staff are top notch. I have had to see quite a few orthopedics through the years for my knees and a bad ankle. Dr. Jurist did not rush me along, he took the time to explain my current condition, what to expect in the future, and to answer all of my questions. His staff is just as professional and caring. My visit to Dr. Jurist and Performance Orthopedics is by far one of the best experiences I have had at a doctors office, if not the best.

My son turned his ankle while jumping on a trampoline one afternoon after school. It was almost 5PM before we were able to get him to Dr. Jurist's office. Dr. Jurist stayed after closing and saw my son and fitted his ankle with an air cast and crutches due to a small fracture near the growth plate. Everything healed up nicely and Dr. Jurist is great!
in Broaddus, TX |
First time patient with Dr. Jurist. He and his entire staff was very nice. Dr. Jurist took time to explain the options I had with broken hand and wrist and the expected outcome. I was very pleased.
Windsor, VA |
Both my son and myself have seen Dr. Jurist and we were very pleased. We were able to get in quickly for both appointments and he was very thorough. They were able to perform x-rays on site and I got the results and his recommendation immediately. The staff was also very friendly and overall we had a great experience and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an orthopedic.
in Kilgore, TX |
Dr. Jurist is the rudest most condescending pompous jerk of a doctor I have ever met. Bedside manner - horrible! Would hardly let me get a word in. Was asking a question and right in the middle he turned his back on me and started having a discussion with his PA. Was also incredibly insensitive and quick to remind me that I am "paying him for his opinion". Horrible at even giving cortisone shots. Felt very rushed in exam room. Felt like he simply could care less. PATIENT BEWARE!!!! STAY AWAY!!!!
