Dr. Jones, scheduler Becca Rathbone and the rest of his staff are professional, thorough, and pleasant. Dr. Jones’ shoulder repairs are unrivaled in the greater Asheville are and his multiple office location in Asheville, Arden, and Hendersonville make him easily accessible. I couldn’t be more grateful for his treatment of a severely damaged shoulder. I would highly recommend him to people of all ages!!

I have been going to Dr. Jones for at least 18 years and he has been very attentive. He does not jump to do surgery. I have done a lot of physical therapy for my knee which had been surgically done poorly by another surgeon. I definitely recommend him to family and friends.

I saw Dr. Jones for a shoulder injury. He seemed smug and incompassionate during the office visit. I should've left then. He recommended surgery and told me it was a relatively routine fix. Not only was the surgery unsuccessful, the shoulder is now WORSE than it was prior to surgery.
