Great doctor. Listens and does not rush me when I ask a million questions. Empathetic. Truly one of the kindest persons I have ever met and best doctor I’ve ever been to. I’m due to have some surgeries at some point because of my condition. I won’t be afraid this time.

After the car accident, I was petrified that I would never walk again. Dr. Staples assured me we would be better off than it seemed. Four months later, I am walking and so happy. Dr. Staples and his staff help patients stay calm and know they are in the best hands.

Hip replacement 9 months ago. Dr Staples is a phenomenal surgeon and I would go back to him in a heartbeat if I need the other hip done. He is genuinely concerned about you as a patient, takes time to explain everything and it was an absolute joy to go through this process with a person of such integrity and warmth. We are so fortunate to have him in the valley.
