Dr. TENHOLDER Is very professional and courteous and attentive doctor. I've been seeing him for several years. I honestly believe he cares for his patients by keeping a wonderful staff and support team and keeping up with the latest technology. I've had two knee surgeries with him. I highly recommend him for any of your orthopaedic needs. Great person.

I had an excellent experience with Dr. Tenholder and his staff. He is personable and friendly and answered all of my questions. The surgery staff was caring and made me feel comfortable. Follow up was easy and informative. The whole experience was smooth and easy.
in Lynn Haven, FL |
Dr Tenholder is an excellent Orthopedic surgeon. He is kind, professional and does what he says he will do. His staff is always available to answer your questions or concerns. Would recommend him to anyone who wants a second opinion or is ready to have a surgical procedure. You will not be disappointed in how you are treated.
I was fortunate enough to meet with Doc concerning my knee condition. Previous procedures had not provided any relief, quite the contrary. I was certainly relieved to find I was a candidate for a partial knee. Its still early or the knee feels great and the joint pain is gone.
in Destin, FL |
Dr. Tenholder is the best. Made me feel very comfortable throughout the entire proces. I would feel good about recommending him to any of my friends or family.
in Niceville,Fl |
Dr. Tenholder is great-had a total hip replacement and all went well- if I'd known how much better I'd be feeling afterwards I'd have done it sooner.
in Niceville, FL |
My experience with Dr. Tenholder and his team working with me on a knee replacement was positive and professional. His management of my case and technical skill with the procedure were first class and yielded the most positive results possible. I would return to Dr Tenholder for any future orthopedic issues in a heartbeat.
Shalimar, FL |
Dr. Tenholder is a superb surgeon, and I had no problems after my total knee replacement. Dr. Tenholder, Rick and Malcom always answered all my questions and addressed any concerns I had. I heartily recommend the team without reservation.
in Destin, FL |
Dr. Tenholder replaced my right knee. I am 73yrs old. I am in fair condition. My surgery took approximately one hour. My recovery period was approximately six weeks. I am so excited about the care I received. I wanted to share my experience. Dr. Tenholder is the real deal. A First class surgeon. The staff at Sacred Heart was also great. I highly recommend Dr. Mark Tenholder.
in Crestview Fl |
When u saw the x ray, I knew it was time. Had several to recommend.. one decision was made, called Karen, the scheduler and every date was set by her. The entire team AMAZING.
I had a partial knee replacement on my right knee two weeks ago. I came home walking on one crutch and within a week, I was walking independently around the house. This credit goes to Dr. Tenholder's expertise and knowledge with the robotic knee replacement procedure. He's one of the best surgeons in the region with great surgical and office staff to help make the experience the best it can be.! I highly recommend Dr. Tenholder as he's a caring and gifted physician and surgeon.
in Destin, FL |
Extremely caring, courteous, and professional staff.
in Mary Esther, FL |
3 years ago Dr Tenholder replace my LEFT Hip, i have not had any problems since my surgery, at that time X-rays showed that sometime in the future that I would have to get my RIGHT Hip replace, about 8 months ago I started having pain in my RIGHT Hip, I made an appt see Dr Tenholder and the new X-ray showed that I need to have it replace, at that time I was told that I would have the ROBOTIC HIP SURGEON the surgery was swift and success, My recovery has been nothing short of miraculous.
in Destin, FL |
Excellent health care! I had a partial knee replacement on my left knee two years ago - absolutely no problems! Same procedures on my right knee June 27 (two weeks ago today). Was walking by end of week using walker but then went to cane immediately the next week! Dr Tenholder and his staff (Rick and Malcolm) are wonderful! I would recommend Dt Tenholder to anyone considering joint replacement!
in Panama City, FL |
I went to Dr. Tenholder for hip replacement surgery. I had the surgery in the morning and was walking before noon. I have had very little pain and was walking with only a cane the very next week. Dr. Tenholder and his staff are absolutely the best! Everyone was so professional and took great care to see that my needs were met. I highly recommend Dr. Tenholder.
in Freeport, FL |
The care, personal attention and surgical skill were outstanding. Dr Tenholder and his staff are very caring and helped to relieve all concerns I had about my surgery.
in Niceville, FL |
Dr. Tenholder did knee replacement surgery. Surgery and therapy went smoothly and I am basically pain free. Dr. Tenholder, his Physician Assistants and Nurses are professional and very thorough in explaining what to expect before and after surgery. He and his staff are outstanding. I would recommend him without any reservations. He and his staff are highly competent and a pleasure to deal with.
Gulf Breeze, FL |
Dr. Tenholder spent time with me, really listened, and gave recommendations for my care. I only wish I had come to him first! He's a great doctor.
in Panama City Beach, FL |
I did my due diligence in picking a surgeon when I decided to have it done. Dr. Tenholder graded out as superior to any other orthopedic surgeon in northwest Florida. During the process, I found out it was for good reason. After having replacement surgery on my right hip, there is no way I would allow anyone other than Dr. Tenholder to perform such a surgery on me. He has a great presence in the office - allowing the patient to relax and at the same time be informed. Unparalleled surgeon.
in Fort Walton Beach, Fl |
Dr. Tenholder has been a very attending surgeon. He is very easy to talk with and the daily questionnaire is wonderful with quick response on questions I have had regarding my knee replacement. Highly recommend Dr. Tenholder for ortho needs.
Pensacola, FL |
He explains all the pros & cons of treatment and then recommends a treatment. He is very friendly and takes as much time as needed.
in Panama City Beach, FL |
Dr. Tenholder and his team are exceptional.
Seacrest, FL |
A trusted friend sent me to Dr. Tenholder and it might be enough just to report I had both knees replaced, 3 months apart. If the first time was less than excellent, it would be hard to go back. Dr. T's reputation of a stickler or perfectionist is EXACTLY what you want for a surgeon who is doing an intricate and serious surgery on your body. His team includes both a top notch nurse and P.A. as well.
Niceville, FL |
Care was exceptional by Dr. Tenholder & staff.
in Ft Walton Beach, FL |
I live in a retirement community, and Dr. Tenholder was recommended to me by many other folks living here. He did my knee replacement and everything went perfectly from pre-testing to an overnight stay at the hospital to my first postop visit with him. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Dr. Tenholder, in my opinion, is one of the best orthopaedic surgeons around, and I would highly recommend him without reservations to my family and friends.
in Niceville, FL |
He is absolutely superb! Highly skilled/talented/ professional. His surgical skills culminated in the highest level for my very successful hip surgery. The pre-op, O.R., post-op care was extremely organized under his care/supervision. THANK YOU SO MUCH , Melanie Johnson
in Mary Esther,Fl. |
Dr. Tenholder And Staff Were Excellent All The Way Around!! This was my First Partial Knee Surgery. And I was Extremely Scared!! But I Knew that I could Trust Dr. Tenholder, because he took the time to prepare me. So it was a Piece of cake!! I walked out the Hospital with No Problems!!!! And to this day I've walked better than before!!! Sincerely, Adele Shaner
Mary Esther, FL |
Dr. Tenholder is an outstanding physician dedicated to his patients comfort, quality of life and overall well being. He has been treating me for over 5 years for a shoulder problem which was misdiagnosed by another doctor and for deteriorating knees. He doesn't push surgery, but I was ready for a LTKR which he did on 1/10/17 with excellent results. If you have an orthopedic problem, Dr. Tenholder is the best.
Mary Esther, FL |
Dr. Tenholder is a very caring, compassionate physician who is dedicated to making his patients' lives better. He will tell you when he thinks surgery will help you, but he doesn't push you into it. His surgical skills are awesome. I had a LTKR on 1/10/17 and I'm doing very well. I would recommend him to anyone having orthopedic problems. As a bonus, he has a wonderful personality and bedside manner.
in Niceville, FL |
I had my left hip replaced. I was in a lot of pain when I went into the hospital. Np pain after the operation! Took pain meds for a couple of days. After that I stopped, did not need them. My heeling possces went very well. I had home health that worked for me. Then I started rehab for a month. That also went well. Thank you Dr Tenholder, Rick & Melcomb. They are awesome men, with the utmost in health care & more important patient care. WHAT A TEAM! Cynthia Starr HAPPY NEW YEAR!
in Santa Rosa Beach, FL |
I cannot state enough about Dr. Tenholder, Rick, his PA and all the members of his staff in the 500 character space permitted in the survey. The total knee replacement surgery using the custom made joint by Zimmer was as close to perfect as anyone could expect. The after surgery care I was shown was outstanding !! They deserve 10 stars..... My surgery was June 14 and I am going snow skiing end of December - now that is perfect !!
in Destin, FL |
Dr Tenholder did my hip replacement two weeks ago He and his staff did an excellent job before, during, and after the surgery. I am extremely pleased with the results of my surgery and the outstanding care that I received from Dr Tenholder
in Freeport Florida |
Dr. Tenholder performed a half knee replacement on my right knee and the results were outstanding. Been walking since the day of surgery. no more pain. Thanks for the great service. Results were outstanding. I did physical therapy at home for two weeks and that was it. Total quality of life change for me. Thanks for no pain no more!!!! I recommend Dr. Tenholder to anyone. Ft. Walton Beach hospital is where the surgery was performed. Thanks to the staff for caring for me, for the day I was there.
in Shalimar |
Dr. Tenholder was highly recommended. I found him to not only be very knowledgeable and capable, but also took the time to fully understand my predicament. And then provided exactly the services I needed. Total professional.
in Ft Walton Beach, FL |
I had my second hip replaced one year ago and I feel great. I was able to play eighteen holes of golf 4 weeks after the surgery. Dr. Tenholder and his team are the very best you could find anywhere. I could recommend Dr. Tenholder to anyone and everyone. I had no pain, recovery was quick and I was home in two days. He is attentive, he listens, he always makes you feel like you are his only patient. We are truly lucky to have a talented surgeon like him in our area.
in Crestview, FL |
Dr. Tenholder is number 1 in my books. He is a compassionate and a friendly orthopedist who takes time with you when you see him. He explains everything in detail. He has taken care of me for the past few years. He made his recommendations to me and I finally chose to go ahead and have a partial knee replacement. The entire staff, Malcom, and Rick (PA) too are exceptional. My surgery went without a hitch and I am well into my 6th week of recovery, walking without pain. Ever grateful.
in Ft Walton Beach, FL |
Dr Tenholder was an EXCELLENT choice for my knee replacement surgery. He was kind, friendly, patient, compassionate, understanding and most important highly skilled. My recovery was really quite manageable and not nearly as difficult as I'd anticipated. Am sure this was possible because of Dr. Tenholder's skill during my surgery. I would highly recommend him for anyone needing consultation for a knee condition. He will guide you in the right direction whether or not surgery is recommended.
Navarre, Florida |
Awesome Doctor! Took time with me and got right in for surgery. Surgical facility called and checked in with me after surgery.
in Santa Rosa Beach, FL |
Highly recommend this physician and his staff. Wife had a wrist fracture & went to Sacred Heart E/R on a weekend. Confirmed fracture per X-ray. E/R suggested a follow-up with Orthopedic Associates with convenient satellite offices in Destin along Hwy 98 near the county line. The entire experience, starting with Christy at the front desk, Nurse Malcom. P.A. Sneller and this doctor was very friendly, professional, and expert.
in Ponce de Leon Florida |
A caring professional. He listened and the resulting conversations proved he listened and understood. He took time to explain all my treatment options and possible outcomes. Ultimately we both agreed that surgery was the right option for me. Dr Tenholder was there before surgery and after surgery. I had total confidence that I was in the best and safest hands. My subsequent speedy and uneventful recovery is a testimonial also to his surgical skills. Great staff also.. A credit to him.
in Niceville, FL |
Professional, knowledgeable with patient care his priority. He leads and manages a staff that provides efficient and very effective patient care. Knee replacement almost 3 years ago is doing very well. I always recommend Dr Tenholder to anyone.
Crestview, FL |
After a year old knee injury and told by other doctors surgical success was low for someone over 50, Dr. Tenholder performed surgery to repair my meniscus tear. The day after surgery, the pain I had felt for the past year was gone. One week later, my knee was back to where it was before it was injured. Now, I can continue to play ball with my kids, hike in the mountains or walk on the beach and not worry about the pain I would have later. Thank You, you are greatly appreciated!!
in Ft Walton Beach, FL |
I have had 2 surgeries with Dr. Tenholder. I had my Right Rotator Cuff repaired. Excellent surgery and aftercare. I had my Left Total Knee Replacement surgery. Excellent surgery, less scaring and wonderful care. I had my Right Knee Replacement surgery a few years ago. That surgery was much more painful, a larger scar and recovery period. I highly recommend Dr. Tenholder for any of your Orthopedic needs. He and his entire staff are rated excellent. I am proud to show my Tenholder knee to anyone.
in Niceville, FL |
There were no surprises with Dr. Tenholder. He told me what to expect and that is exactly what has happened. He took time to answer all my questions and I went into surgery with the utmost confidence in his skills. Here is were the staff comes in to echo the good Doctors skills. The staff from administration, admitting, pre-surgery/post surgery to recovery phase have all been very professional and caring. I felt I was an important patient for all I came in contact with.
in Destin, FL |
Had a total knee replacement. Very successful!! Dr. Tenholder and his entire staff were wonderful from start to finish. Highly recommend
in Destin, FL |
I had total right hip replacement and the whole experience was outstanding. There was minimal recovery time, very little pain and excellent care by Dr. Tenholder, his staff and the personnel at Sacred Heart Hospital. I would recommend all of them to anyone.
in Santa Rosa Beach, FL |
Dr. Tenholder is a very personable, excellent surgeon. He answered all my questions and helped me resolve my knee issues by first using all means necessary to avoid surgery. When that didn't work, his knee replacement surgery has me back on my feet and doing what I was doing prior to surgery in six weeks time. Each time I visited his office, he made me feel as though I was the only patient he had that day. As I grow older, I am sure I will return with other issues! I love his staff as well!
in Santa Rosa Beach, FL |
Prior to my knee replacement surgery, Dr. Tenholder and Rick Sneller, PA, met with me several times to discuss my options, recommend the best treatment plan, and prepare me for what to expect every step of the way. I appreciated their patience and understanding for my specific needs and am extremely pleased with the care I received and the ultimate outcome.
in Destin FL |
Recovery from partial knee replacement exceeded my expectations. Support staff care was excellent.
