If I could give no stars I would. I understand we are all worrying about a virus at the moment. But if you are not going to do your duty of First do no Harm, then cancel appointments. Going into WKU Ortho was fine and very professional, with temps being taken. But this is the exchange once in Fee's office : "what are you hear for? I can only deal with one problem." us: Ok um knee is messed up. I think my foot is broken? Pulling out swollen and bruised foot." "Does it hurt?" Fee asks. 'yes." "then it's probably broken." Quick x ray of knee "Yep its got degeneration, want a shot? I recommend PT." 'Sure, you can't do PT per the government right now' ..Fee: "Ok here's a book." Gave a shot, the nurse put the band-aid on the WRONG SIDE OF THE KNEE away from injection site, and he left. Use to be proud to say I thought Fee was a good doctor, until we went to him.

I really like Dr. Fee and the staff have always been very friendly when I have gone in for an appointment, however, getting through to someone when I call has been nearly impossible. I almost always have to leave a message, which is essentially a dead end because I rarely get a return call.
