I had to have knee surgery for a double tear of my meniscus at the end of August 2018. Dr. Vaughan was great from the first meeting. He explained what the problem was and the corrective actions needed to fix the problem. Dr. Vaughan didn't waste my time throughout this process. Every time I saw him, he answered all of my questions and made sure that I knew where we were going with treatment. I'm 8 weeks post op, and am pain free and stronger than ever! Thank you Dr. Vaughan for your care!

Dr. Vaughan and his staff are top notch! My experience with Dr. Vaughan for my ACL reconstruction and meniscus repair was better than I could have hoped for. Dr. Vaughan took the time to listen to me, answer my questions, and made sure I was fully informed before my surgery. His staff is friendly, organized, and respond quickly to any requests or questions. I can not recommend them enough!

Dr Vaughan was awesome. He helped me get back to the field. My first game back I set a PR for yards per carry and total yards. It was like my knee was never injured. His staff was friendly and encouraging. No doubt the best in Gig Harbor!!

I broke my clavicle pretty badly and Dr. Vaughan was there to fix me! I was able to schedule an appointment quickly and get my surgery set up. I was pretty miserable and their compassion and efficiency was phenomenal. I was able to call and hear back from Dr. Vaughan within 24 hours if I had any concerns or questions. I'm almost 100% now and I am thrilled with the care I received. I always felt like I was in the best of hands. Would go back or recommend!

Dr Vaughan is awesome! Office staff in Tacoma and Gig Harbor are easy to work with. I've had on-going knee issues for over 12 years, with an arthroscopic meniscus repair 12 years ago with a different surgeon. That surgery was miserable. I was in pain for several weeks and nearly two months before returning to work. Dr. Vaughan performed the same surgery last week. The difference between the two experiences are dramatically better!! No pain after day 2! Back to work in about 3 weeks!

I had a terrific experience with Dr. Vaughn. Very easy access to clinic and appointments. He explained my condition in detail. He made my imaging appointments for me. Excellent surgeon, well respected and well known in the Gig Harbor area. My surgical results are very good, my knee is healing well and as expected. I highly recommend Dr. Vaughn!

Dr. Vaughan cares for and about his patients. He takes the necessary time to listen to patient concerns and answer questions. He didn't push surgery on me, but allowed time to determine if my broken knee would heal properly without operating. He was very careful to follow my progress with X-rays and examinations. I avoided surgery and have a completely and properly healed knee joint. Thank you, Dr Vaughn! I would recommend him with complete confidence.

Dr. Vaughan takes the time to listen to what is hurting and then performs a very careful examination. He takes whatever time is necessary to properly evaluate your problem and then sets about solving it. He has an excellent bed side manner; he is a very caring physician and does not believe in cutting first!

Dr Vaughan did a hip replacement for me. He was professional, timely, courteous, and knowledgeable and has a good sense of humor. His office staff is amazing making sure I had all the information and appointments I needed set up prior to surgery. Perhaps the highest kudos come from a neighbor. I walk our road almost daily and 8 weeks after surgery her comment was that she could not even tell that I had had surgery except that I walk much better.
