in Ft Worth, TX |
4 years ago I had both knees replaced by Dr. Taunton. Today I can run up and down stairs, ride my bike and go for extended walks (I am 75 years old). A very skilled, professional Doctor. Takes time to listen and explain the surgery and recovery, step-by-step. Would recommend him (and have) to anybody anticipating knee replacement surgery. The hospital is, just like Dr. Taunton, above average.

If I could leave a minus star review I would. Horrible Dr.! He has the bedside manner of a door knob. He does not care about his patients and will actually leave you worse than you were before you came to him.

Three years ago I had knee replacements on both legs. I had Dr. Taunton recommended to me and it was a good choice. I was very pleased with my care, they treated me like a queen from start to finish! I could not have had a better experience for this surgery. I am very thankful to be able to stand and walk without pain. I like Dr.Taunton very much, he is very professional and his staff was excellent . I am always proud to say who did my surgeries. I had great confidence,and was not disappointed.
