Patient Comments (6)

I am an avid soccer player who plays on 3 Boise soccer teams. I tore my ACL and had it repaired by Dr. Curtin. At the tender age of 55 I am still playing on 3 soccer teams. Dr. Curtin has worked on my wife's, sons and nieces knees as well.

Dr. Curtain wasn't able to treat my problem because his exam showed that my problem was probably in my neck, his professional conduct was excellent and his staff is just as good, although the lady at the front desk might try to smile. I did rate the appointment scheduling low because I had to wait...more

Dr. Curtin did my shoulder surgery in 2010. I have had excellent results and 6.5 years later, still pain free and going strong. He is conservative in his treatment and instills confidence that once surgery is decided, he is the man for the job. He indeed does have a great bedside manner!
