Dr. Dockery is one of the most compassionate surgeons I have seen. He takes time to understand your condition and explain procedures in thorough detail. He empathizes with you when your goals for functionality post-op are not met, and tries his absolute best to get down to the root of the cause. While home base for me is Charlotte, I’ve lived in 2 different cities while under Dr. Dockery’s care. There’s not a doubt that I would return to Charlotte for any of my orthopedic needs!

Great experience. I appreciate how he is not solving problems with surgery right away. I have gotten several cortisone shots in my shoulder, post op. And it has helped in my recovery!

I was seen promptly, and Dr. Docket attended my wrist problem in a kind, proficient manner. He provided me with a contact/appointment with a hand surgeon, should this procedure not be a permanent solution.

Had a very positive office visit with Dr. Dockery. He is a very kind and patient doctor, who was easy to talk to. He listened and didn't rush me. Dr. D. answered all my questions and provided his recommendations for the future care of my knee. I would highly recommend him as an straightforward, honest and caring physician.

Dr. Dockery is amazing and he allowed me to work with him and get surgery scheduled in Charlotte even though I lived in DC. He called me weeks prior to the procedure to discuss my best options and met with me the morning before my surgery to review my MRI. Overall, a wonderful experience! His ability to be flexible is amazing given how busy a doctor’s schedule can be.
