Follow up with Dr. was a disappointment. I had to call several times to get results from MRI & then the nurse was not very professional when finally telling me how I was to follow up from diagnosis. No discussion about cause of injury, therapy, exercises, etc.. Will not be returning.

I broke my arm and I just knew I was gonna have to have surgery. I have a huge fear of needles. I went in to see Dr. Hinton the first thing he said no surgery. We are gonna let this heal on its own. I can tell my arm is healing. I am getting stronger by the day. Dr. Hinton you are the most awesome Dr. I love you and all your staff. You made a very difficult thing easy to deal with being since I had to wait till I'm 49 to ever break a bone. Thank you from my humorous bones and all.??????

absolutely wonderful.. Compared to the Right hip procedure I had 7 years ago, it was a piece of cake.. Dr . Hinton's anterior approach was a VAST improvemet with both pain and recovery. All I ever used for pain was Ibuprofen and Tylenol. Completed at home PT in two weeks and have had very little discomfort through it all.
