Dr.Putney is awesome! I had a radial year of my left meniscus down to the root from a car accident, plus a grade 2 MCL sprang. Dr. Putney repair the tear and did some clean up work on the MCL sprang and my old age. He was always professional and to the point. I appreciate the direct approach Dr. Putney and Terry, his assistant took with my surgery and care. If you are looking for someone to coddle you...he might not be the guy for you. But, if you are looking for an amazing surgeon, he is definitely the man for the job.

Terrible bedside manner. Doesn’t like to be challenged and will turn into a jerk. I don’t care how many years he went to medical school. I have lived in my body longer than he attended school. I know how I react to certain medications and didn’t appreciate his little tantrum.

The office did not submit the required documentation to my insurance for approval (one being the x-ray). The office didn't return my several calls and several calls from my insurance company and rep. All of this tied up my insurance, so I couldn't get approved at another doctor's office. I am 45 days out from my injury and they wanted me to wait another 45 days to resubmit to my insurance, stating it wasn't the doctor's issue. I paid out of pocket to get my own MRI at a different place, since I still was experiencing significant pain. I got the results from my new doctor within 3 days (including Easter weekend) and found out my ACL is a complete tear, partial tear on MCL and patella Chondromalacia. I have so many complaints against Dr. Putney's office. Their lack of concern, lack of communication, refusing to return anyone's many calls, lack of professionalism on submitting the correct information to insurance...

They were almost NO help with my ankle condition. I was given a prescription for a generic of Advil which did not fix anything. They put a cheap little insert in my shoe and tried to bill the insurance company $57.84 for it! Of course the insurance company refused to pay. Now they are hounding me for this outrageous bill. I have been trying to contact them about this for two weeks and can't get through to anyone who will help. The office manager Monica Reyes will not return my calls. Stay away!

The best Othro in central Tx. He has a focus on getting athletes back on the field. He is aggressive in treatment, but that is because he wants you healed as fast as he can. The ONLY Othro my family will see. He has set my sons broke wrist, all on my and my wife's ankle

When a Physical Therapist tells you that they like a Doctor it is the best and most reliable recommendation you can ask for. PT's are interested in good outcomes and know which doctors have the best outcomes. Dr Putney is well respected at the hospital where I had hip replacement surgery. The entire staff at the hospital, especially the PT, have high praise for Dr Putney.

I had a UTV accident and crushed my left calf on top of total knee blow out. I was scheduled for surgery until i was rushed to the ER and found out i had blood clots. Never was any testing done for bloodclots or any follow up of any kind...all about the surgery only. If i would have went ahead with surgery...chances are I could have died. Overall neglagent in every sense of the word and a horrible experience...do not go to quack Putney if you value your life.
