He listened. He was efficient. I limped in and I walked out after he drained my Bakers cyst.

I had a Stem cell & PRP treatment after consultation w Dr Tennant. He was very professional as well as thoughtful. The procedure went smoothly w minimal pain. I walked out on my own steam and am feeling already improved on day 3. I will know more as i progress over the next few weeks. I recommend Dr Tennant highly. Chelsea & Jasmin were also great in the prep and assist.

I've been a patient for many years. I've had meniscus tears, and double knee replacements. Dr. Tennant is an excellent doctor. He is a great listener, has superior orthopedic knowledge and is an excellent surgeon. When doing my right and left knee replacements, he was extremely articulate and precise in his measurements (you don't want one leg longer than the other). I had the procedure done three years ago. I am very happy and delighted with the outcome. Dr. Tennant is a nice person. I hig

The appointment process is a well oiled machine, the front desk is immediately in front of the elevators, the receptionist was kind and helpful. There was hardly a wait before being called for X rays, the tech was also kind and sweet. Had hardly any wait before seeing Dr. Tennant. He was straight and to the point, which I appreciate. This isn't my first go-round with a knee issue, so I really didn't have many questions. The MA was friendly and stressed that she was open to calls.

Worst experience I’ve had at a doctor’s office. Tennant was more than an hour late for the appointment, did five minutes of exam and explanation, then left without asking if I had questions. I had to complain to two people before I got my questions answered. O+F can easily feel like a factory so it’s especially important to find a doc you can trust. I would never see Tennant again.

Dr. Tennant has deep expertise, diagnoses accurately, explains the options clearly, and is an excellent surgeon. He diagnosed and treated my arthritis and then performed a full knee replacement. Yesterday I had my one year post op appointment and am so very glad I found this doctor and replaced my knee. His team is superb - every one of them. He works with an assistant and three Physician Assistants. All of them are caring and compassionate.

I was seen by Dr. Tennant weeks ago. Based on what I know now, I believe I was misdiagnosed. I contacted a colleague of Dr Tennant to request a referral to someone else. I was given 2 names of drs within their same clinic. I called to schedule an appointment and was thwarted at every turn by support staff. I understand clinics have internal procedures, but when those policies become an impediment to a patient receiving the diagnosis and treatment they are seeking, they need to be reviewed.

Dr. Tennant is factual, highly informative and very helpful with decisions about how to resolve my problems with my knee. He performed a full knee replacement which has been 100% successful. I had prepared through exercise. I was walking without any form of aid within about a week. Within 3 months I enjoyed a vacation that included lots of walking, quite a lot of stairs, and long hours in the air. I would go back to him right away if I have any future needs and highly recommend him. Do the PT!

Dr Tenant assisted Dr Lairson when he did hip injections for me on the 3rd floor using ultrasound as opposed to the 2nd floor fluoroscope procedure. I don’t have a lot of experience with Dr Tenant because Lairson has been my Doc for 11 years. That being said, he was excellent in this case and I would certainly feel very comfortable if he were with Dr Lairson again, although since I have such a long history with Dr Lairson I would ask for him.
