Patient Comments (4)
in Starkville, MS |
I am an MSU student from out of state and I had a severe knee injury during the school year. With Dr. Linton's help, I had surgery and recovered very quickly. My only problem is the amount of time I had to wait in the office. They schedule too many appointments!! But to me, it was worth the wait
Little Rock, AR |
Like some of the other patients I've read reviews from, I thought Linton would be a good choice since he's the ortho for MSU. Big mistake on my part...I came out of the surgery looking butchered rather than the "whole about the size of the end of your pinky" like he said. He certainly didn't fix any of my problems and only caused more. I am now facing my 8th surgery trying to fix his screwup. Look elsewhere!!!
Ackerman, MS |
Wait time is exhausting!!! However he is very very knowledgeable one of the best doctors i have ever seen.. When first opened the practice it was better. Now is overbooked
Felt like I was very rushed during my appt. I heard from one of the front desk clerks that he schedules 3 patients per one ten minute slot. Knew he was the team dr for MSU so assumed he must be competent. Big mistake. Surgery was like an assembly line. Didn't even see dr before surgery nor following the surgery. My husband said he came in for a couple of seconds to say I was doing fine. Knee never did heal- 8yrs crippled- enormous pain. New dr (knee replacement) completely healed in 1yr.
