Riverton, UT |
My dad broke his hip and was taken to the emergency room. Unfortunately it was Dr. Larcom who operated on him. We NEVER spoke to him after surgery. He sent his PA in a few times. My dad was in the hospital for 7 days as he developed an infection, still didn’t see Dr Larcom. About 3 months later my dad finally sees the great Dr. Larcom who then chuckles and says he will have to operate again. HE IS A JOKE!! DO NOT SEE THIS “Doctor”!!

Dr. Larcom has operated three different times on me. A knee replacement, a hip replacement, and the quads on my right leg. He has done an excellent job, I highly recommend him, I would trust my life to him.

After my hip replacement, I was a half inch taller on that side. I also developed bursitis and for a year, I felt as if the hip would dislocate. This doctor blamed my limb length difference on a surgery I had 20 years ago. He told me I was uneven because I was lying down during the X-ray. A year after the surgery, the hip dislocated and I went to the ER via ambulance. A different ortho told me the hip wasn't put in correctly. I had the other doc do the revision and now I'm fine. Never again.

I would not recommend family and friends to this office.

My mother was in severe pain the entire time she was in Dr. Larcom's care. Because of his carelessness, she had to undergo three hip surgeries in the span of 2 1/2 months. In the 1st one, he shattered her femur when hammering in the implant & sent her home like that. After 2 more visits for the pain, she was back in surgery to have "wire" wrapped around her femur to hold it together. Then she was sent home with a dislocated hip! Because of the unrelenting pain, Mother lost her will to live.

I hadn't seen Dr. Larcom for over a year and he recognized me the moment he walked in to the patient room in his office. Although my procedure was relatively minor after breaking my ankle while mountain biking, I was well taken care of. Dr. Larcom didn't waste time and in a very friendly manor, explained what I needed to have done.

Dr. Larcom is a JOKE! He operated on my grandpa's shoulder, yet my grandpa never met him. He couldn't take 5 minutes before OR after surgery to come talk to him, he sent his PA. My family had to go looking for him or his PA 3 hours post op to get a report on how it went & what to expect. Two weeks later & a screw from the plate is already coming loose & it's swollen & infected. My grandpa has to have it operated on again from a different surgeon. DO NOT let him operate on your loved ones!!!
