Dr Schamblin always made me feel like family. I had an ACL surgery and Dr Schamblin as well as his team made sure that I was as comfortable as possible. My follow ups with Dr Schamblin have also showed me that he truly cares for his patients. You never feel rushed out of his office and he’s always there if you have any questions.

There is no one I trust more than Dr. Schamblin. His knowledge of shoulder injuries and his calm demeanor put me at ease about my procedure. He is simply the best.

The doctor and his physician assistant validated my concerns and took the needed time to answer questions from both my spouse and myself. Staff was friendly and had a sense of humor (which we enjoyed). The HealthLoop system helped with at home care, which made me feel like the staff was at home with me at all times to answer any questions or concerns.

I loved my experience with Dr Schamblin. He's very thorough when going over your x-rays and explaining what his procedure will be. He didn't give false hope that I would be perfect after having my knee scoped, but that he would do his very best to make it as good as possible. And he did that. I was so happy with the result...my leg had been injured for 4 or 5 months by the time I saw him to get it scoped, & the damage was pretty extensive. I am so much better...yes I highly recommend.

The entire experience has been as smooth as possible, considering I’ve never had a surgery of this magnitude. Dr. Schamblin and his staff are top notch. Being one of the best in my profession, I required and expected the best to deal with my injury, and I received just that. Dr. Schamblin is confident in his abilities and practices and his staff, having those attributes is what helped me feel at ease and relaxed.

What can you say about Dr. Schamblin and his team at the SCOI facility? WOW! From the very beginning, he and his staff were nothing but amazing. Hats off to him and his team, and a special thanks to Dr. Tobias. The facility is top notch and there is something to be said about having all of their services on site at the SCOI center. This was my third orthoscopic procedure and by far, it was the best. From the receptionist to all of the doctors, it just seemed that they went out of their way to ma

Dr. Schamblin is by far the best orthopedic surgeon I have ever seen. I would highly recommend anybody him and his team to anybody needing orthopedic care. I felt 100% confidence in his team from the first visit all the way to surgery. Please if you are broken do yourself a favor don’t waist time going someplace else, make an appointment with scoi and request Dr Schamblin you won’t regret it.
