Patient Comments (7)
in Crossville, TN |
Very patient with his patients
in Knoxville, TN |
I had surgery on my hand due to arthritis in the CMC joint. Dr. Ivy and his staff provided exceptional care during my surgery and with follow-up care. Dr. Ivy explained to me exactly what procedure would be used and gave me confidence that surgery was an option I should consider. The surgical team explained to me exactly what care I would be given during the procedure. The Physical Therapy I received helped my regain use of my hand. I feel fortunate to have the support of their care.

I totally destroyed my wrist falling from a ladder and Dr. Ivy made it as good as new. There is no substitute for having an awesome surgeon.

Dr. Ivy is the very best - I give him an A+ He is a great Christian man, loves his family and life in general. Extremely personable, patient and caring - explains everything thoroughly. Couldn't ask for a better doctor!
in Maryville, TN |
We are fairly new to the area and I was referred to Dr. Ivy by a friend. I had surgery in January, 2017 and it has been a great experience. Dr. Ivy and the surgical team were easy to work with, helped to alleviate my apprehension regarding surgery, and saw me through the recovery process. A shout out to their physical therapy folks as well.
