I was having such knee pain I could barely walk. I called and got an appointment that day to see Dr. Hurley. The receptionist was so courteous on the phone and when I arrived. I didn’t have to wait long and the rest of the staff were so polite and informative of what was going on with my knee. Dr. Hurley came in and explained what he thought needed to be done which was to drain the fluid off my knee and get a cortisone injection. Prescription Ibuprofen and therapy to teach me how to stretch my hamstring which he said was very tight. This was also restricting my movement. OMGoodness. I could not believe the difference. I am like a new woman! I honestly thought going would be a waste of time and money but boy was I wrong!!! Thank you guys so much!

Dr. Hurley performed a brief physical exam for acute left elbow discomfort and pain occurring for several weeks past. Following xrays the diagnosis was tendonitis which was to be treated with PT and oral Ibuprofen for approximately four weeks duration. I felt that he rendered both a thorough questioning and physical examination. He also questioned the current status of a right rotator cuff repair and biceps tendonesis that he performed approximately 14 years previous. I recovered remarkably well considering it was a major injury following a accidental fall from a ladder. His care and concern and care will always remain foremost and I can highly recommend Dr. Hurley for any individual seeking a competent orthopedic physician.

I was in such pain but Dr. Hurley had me laughing in spite of that. He ended up putting an injection in my knee. I did not feel anything. He explained everything to me in term I could understand.

This was my first time meeting Dr. Hurley and it was a positive experience. He took great care to explain many things, asked me numerous questions, and was very thorough and clear. His passion for what he does was evident, as was his professional expertise. I was very pleased.

He seemed like he wasn't very interested in listening to me . He would interrupt me every time I'd open my mouth . Telling me all I need is a shot in my shoulder and physical therapy (which I've already tried). So I paid him to tell me something I've already done that didn't work .. He's pretty arrogant. He treated my wife similar on her visit as well . Wouldn't recommend him to anyone actually
