Dr. Kinghorn and his staff are so amazing!Friendly yet professional they treat you like family. Dr. Kinghorn never rushes you and no matter how small the question he answers all of it. I had my first surgery on my right foot, the recoup time isn't easy. Especially if you are an independent person (such as myself). I have had many surgeries and this was the hardest for me to recoup. I Will say 100 % worth it!Can't wait to have my left foot done.Thank u so much for giving me my life back!

After first appointment, I am very comfortable with the treatment I chose. Options were explained very well, office staff was great and Dr Kinghorn took a lot of time with us going over the injury, showing us the xrays and explaining the surgery I chose. Highly recommend.

I called for first time and attempted to make an appointment, Jessica told me that I should call Cigna first, and then call back. I did so and called back, she was very rude, and she "lost signal" when I was asking questions about coverage. Not friendly, and slightly arrogant and condescending. I am sure Dr Kinghorn is a competent Dr. but he should have help that is willing to answer questions without being put off. Please Jessica, just be nice, it goes a long way. Train staff to be more helpful

I had a Lapidus bunion surgery in late August. Dr. Kinghorn had explained fully the procedure and the recovery time involved. The surgery was outpatient and went very well. The recovery was long and tedious - non-weight bearing for 4 weeks. The pain was virtually non-existent after about the first week. At my 4 week checkup the bone had fused to the point I was released to walk in the surgical boot. I am 9 weeks post -op and would definitely recommend Dr. Kinghorn for a foot procedure.

Dr. Kinghorn was pleasant and confident in his assessment of my condition. He offered more than one solution which made me feel like I was part of the solution process. His explanation of the condition and recovery from surgery was spot on. His office staff was great and made getting appointments a breeze.

I would recommend anyone go to Dr. Kinghorn. He treats his patients like the individuals they are. He is complete and thorough with his accessments and is amazing with his procedures if not perfect. He takes the necessary time needed to make sure you're completely healed before releasing you. His office and personnel are awesome and friendly and they are all flexible and fun to be around. I will miss them all greatly. Thank you all for all you did for me. ??

I still have the issue I originally went in for (and it was ignored after two visits and a phone call) and some how I got guilted into buying inserts even when I told them I couldn't afford it. They also can't answer questions about your bill accurately so you end up with surprise costs.
