Our visits with Dr. Hinton are always good.
in Sulphur, LA |
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.
in Lake Charles, LA |
Dr. Hinton and his staff are very professional and compassionate. They are extremely helpful and you're in good hands when you're under their care. I would recommend to family and friends.
