Chattanooga, TN |
Dr. Apyan in my opinion is the best orthopedic surgeon in Chattanooga. He explains things in a manor that people without medical knowledge understands and will only do surgery if it is the last resort. Great office will cool stuff in too! Popcorn popper & an old gas pump
in Calhoun, TN |
Was left in pre surgery , said he thought it over and since I was already 70 years old that I could manage if I was careful. He was supposed to repair a torn tendon but he had an unscheduled surgery before mine and was late. Guess he had a dinner date that was more important ! Can't trust that man anymore. Left me hooked up to all those gadgets. Even the nurses didn't know what to do so I jerked that stuff off got dressed never to return again!!?
in Signal Mtn., Tn. |
He's an excellent surgeon & gets good results if the patient will do what is required of them. He gives detailed info b/f surgery & expectations for post-op care. He allows u to ask questions w/o making u feel rushed or stupid. Had a crazy sense of humor, but I like that
in Flat Rock, AL |
Sarcastic, wanted to talk about his personal experience with a condition like mine & how he worked through the pain. Let his intern do the entire exam. Dr. Apyan didn't touch me. I was not given the chance to see my X-rays. Referred for joint injection & return in 6 weeks. I questioned 6 weeks because I was in so much pain & Dr. Apyan said, o.k., 6 months. I wasn't amused.
