What People Say About Dr. Richard Hinton, MD

Great doctor, This comment relates to his surgical center. If possible, avoid the First appointment of the day. He apparently comes in at 7 but they have you arrive at 530 am. The staff are friendly, but the wait of over an hour for the doc to arrive for a first appointment is Absolutely unnecessary. I’m not sure if he even knows, but he sure should. A later appointment might help your wait time.

MY experience in having my shoulder operated on by DR. Hinton were great. I had torn ligaments in my shoulder and bicept. HE mended my ligaments to the shoulder. through small incisions so i have no huge scar on my shoulder. Therapy for motion have taken months.. My strength motion is next.

I have had 2 rotator cuff surgeries by Dr Hinton, the first was very severe at 100% tear, and the second one a more minor 30% tear. My recovery was excellent and his staff very attentive to my needs......both jobs 100%!

My sister tore her ACL and Dr. Hinton was her doctor. A couple years later I had Osteochondritis dissecans and Dr. Hinton did all three of my surgeries. He is the best doctor I have ever had. He explained everything and took his time. He is a marvelous surgeon. I have recommended him to everyone who is having orthopedic problems. I will continue to refer him as he is the best doctor and he made my life better through his work. If you want a good doctor go to him. You will not regret it.
