    My first visit with Dr. Tibbetts was better than I could have imagined. First of all the office atmosphere including the staff was very welcoming. Dr. Tibbetts eased all my fears and nervousness. He fully explained my condition and treatment. Thanks Dr. Tibbetts.

    Dr. Tibbetts is a great doctor. On Aug 3rd he performed surgery on my left knee to repair two tears to the meniscus. In 2012 he replaced my right shoulder with the results being I have full range of motion. He is knowledgeable and professional I will not use any other surgeon. What I like most about him is his sense of humor and down home communications with me. He cares for his patients.

    Dr Tibbetts fixex my torn meniscus last November. He is a great surgeon but more than that he is very personable and is easy to talk to. He takes the time to listen to your concerns. I am going to have a knee replacement in November and I would not go to anyone else besides dr Tibbitts. He is great and I would highly recommend him

    Dr. Tibbetts and all his staff were excellent. I had to get in for a visit w/o an appointment and they worked me right in, and I didn't have to wait very long to be seen. Everyone from the front desk to the x-ray tech, to the check out person were great. Dr. Tibbetts is awsome. I would send my family and friends there w/o hesitation.

    Dr. T replaced my knee last December. He is a great surgeon, a really nice guy, too. He should list knees as one of his specialties. Highly recommended.

    This is the first time in several years that mt knees have not been in pain! It was just a cortisone shot, but he started with the basics to help relieve the pain.
    Dr Tibbetts is very thorough, and explains the condition and treatment needed. He schedules follow up appointments as needed. Dr Tibbetts is very easy to talk to and takes time with his patients. He is a very good surgeon and highly respected. Dr Tibbetts is very professional and has a good bedside manner. I highly recommend Dr Tibbetts as an Orthopaedic Surgeon.
    Thank you for the recommendation!

    I had a torn meniscus and Dr. Tibbetts did a swell job. My only concern is the way that billing is handled. I have a family of four and when you can't identify the billing from Tibbetts office, it can be quite unpleasant. It results in you calling your insurance company, billing company and Tibbett's office for confirmation. In addition, I received a bill from a non-preferred provider in which case the insurance did not cover the majority of the bill. Beware of the hidden cost involved.

    Dr Tibbets recently performed a Total Knee Replacement surgery on me, and I couldnt be happier. He had warned me that if I wanted it to work, I was going to have to be diligent with my physical therapy, and I've done just that - my knee works great. Ready to have the other one done.

    Dr. Tibbets repaired a torn meniscus on my left knee. I am hard on my knees and carry a lot of gear around. Since the surgery no problems at all with pain or anything. Dr. Tibbets is certainly a first rate surgeon, and I would have no problem letting him do any surgery on family or loved ones. He is not just good, he is great!
    Dr Tibbetts is highly skilled. My surgery healed much faster than I had reason to expect.

    I had an appointment scheduled to see Dr Tibbetts at 120 and showed up at the office at 115 and was told he would noy be able to see me. As a medical professional myself I rescheduled my entire afternoon to see Dr Tibbetts as I was referred by another medical colleague of mine for shoulder pain. Ridiculous customer service. No wonder we get the bad rap we do. It's because of Drs like this who put themselves before their patients. Don't bother with this office
