Crossville, TN |
Doctor Naylor is a very good Doctor and very easy to talk to. Thorough and wants to work with you as a team. I would highly recommend him to others. The only negative: Making contact via phone.......... Tough trying to contact a nurse.
Kingston, TN |
I called last week my knees were hurting so bad. I need knee replacements but keep putting it off. They got me in the same day and Josh gave me cortisone injections. When I get brace enough I'll have the surgery.
in Dunlap, TN |
Dr. Naylor was referred to us by our pastors wife. He was excellent, doing something the original surgeon (from Chattanooga) flat refused to do. He took the time to examine my husband (rather than putting problems off on husbands "other" issues) and was very thorough in testing and successful completion of corrective shoulder replacement surgery. I would (and do) recommend him to anyone facing these types of orthopedic procedures.
in Lenoir City, TN |
Have had three surgeries done by Dr. Naylor all with excellent results. Highly recommend him to anyone looking for a great surgeon with a great personality and a very caring person.

Dr Naylor explained what was causing the pain in my hip and the best way to correct it. When I decided on surgery, it was scheduled within 2 wks. He and his whole staff were very attentive and addressed every question I had. The surgery went very well. Dr Naylor made sure my pain was well controlled at home and followed up twice. I'm am very happy and would highly recommend him. Thank you to the whole staff.

in Rockwood, TN |
He is the best in my book, will not go to any other Orthopaedic doctor.
in Johnson City, TN |
I would highly recommend Dr Paul Naylor to anyone thinking about having hip replacement. He tell you the way things are, doesn't sugar coat anything. Very nice bed side manner. He take as long as need to much sure you are comfortable with your decision. He actually worked me in for surgery when in 2 to 3 weeks after my 1st appointment. He kept reassuring me that things will be better.
