Loved the care and expertise I was given by Dr King. Highly knowledgable and informative. He doesn't sugarcoat the situation and let's you know in detail what to expect. He has always followed up with my concerns pre and post op. he is very thorough and answered all my questions. I felt like I was in excellent hands and my issue has since been resolved completely. I highly recommend Dr King to anyone needing orthopedic work done, he's the best! I would see anyone else or let my famiy.

Dr. King is a disgrace to his profession. He is the most arrogant person I and my friend have ever met. He should be sanctioned by the medical board for patient negligence since he does absolutely no follow-up on his post-surgical patients. He cuts 'em and and leaves 'em. He couldn't care less about the patient, and is a high-priced surgeon in it solely for the money. If I could, I would slap his arrogant face and tell him to retire immediately.

I would recommend DR. KING to everyone , he is very knowledgeable and informs you of everything you need to know and is very experienced. He fixed my broken leg and I felt no worries at all since he was a surgeon in the military I knew I was in great hands! Thanks DR KING Brady Fox Mudge

Found him to be very insulting to me and my concerns after 13 days of not getting back to me. His nonchalant attitude to my injury & pain was rude & judgmental. All I wanted was to see the orthopedist assigned to me & discuss my injury, pain, documentation & x-rays takin the day of injury in comparison to new ones....instead I got a call from him insinuating I trying to get drugs or ride on the disability train.....I miss the days of real healthcare & real doctors.
