Dr Payne got me in right away, and I couldn't be happier with him. Professional, kind. Incredible bedside manner (not that you're in a bed)

I have seen Dr. Payne a few times for hand and wrist problems. He is very professional and caring. He performs a thorough examination and listens to you. I have had great results.

The front desk was totally uninterested in me. It was clear I was interrupting the 2 front desk girls' conversation while looking at their cell phones. Other nurses which called patients to the back were incredibly rude to the patients as well. After waiting for more than 1 hour, I was escorted by a male nurse to an examination room. He asked for my history and as I began to explain, he rudely cut me off and told me to keep my mask on my face. I did not remove my mask, I slightly pulled it from my face for air. It was difficult to breathe and talk. He was less than caring and more robotic repeating himself once again. Needless to say, I left as I felt my pain and condition was not a concern, but more of a power play on his part. I work in healthcare and I understand the concern healthcare workers encounter and respect their dedication, however I know the difference between risk and rudeness. The staff was horrific. I was never contacted by anyone afterwards. Nothing!

Saw Dr. Payne today. He was professional, empathetic, caring, and thorough. He examined my wrist reviewed x-rays, and rendered a diagnosis explaining what was causing the problem. He injected my wrist and applied a brace. As always I was totally satisfied with Dr. Payne's treatment and instructions. A+ practice and care from front desk to physician, nurses, techs. Best in Atlanta.

Dr. Payne is an excellent physician and surgeon. He takes whatever time is needed to educate you and assure you. He has treated me several times, including two surgeries, both of which were highly successful. I strongly recommend him.

I am returning after 6 yrs to Dr. Payne. I was pleased with his surgeries on my elbow and finger on two different occasions and 2 yrs. apart, I am now back. As before, he is thorough and informative and I trust his judgment on how to proceed with the hand issues.

Dr. Payne is unusual for a MD specializing in orthopedics- he is soft-spoken, gentle, non intimidating- I felt he had time to answer questions. I highly recommend Dr. Payne.

Dr. Payne is a brilliant surgeon. He worked his magic on my smashed wrist, Only three months ago and now it feels normal! And that was following surgery! He is a kind gentle soul and I am so glad he became my wrist surgeon. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs the TLC Dr. Payne can give.

Dr Payne never seems to be in a hurry. He seems genuinely interested in providing good care, answering questions, explaining the details of the problem and all options. He has done two surgeries for me and I’m still great 8 years later!

Dr. Payne is awesome. He listens to the description of symptoms and begins treatment with the least burdensome protocol and we will increase treatment levels as needed if we don't see improvement. This visit was for newly developed elbow pain. He did a very successful tendon replacement surgery for me 7 years ago on my hand and I will seek his care for anything hand, wrist or elbow related. Great doctor.
