It was my first visit. I don't do well with white coats, but Dr Hodges was thorough and kind. I went in thinking it was my hips that was the problem and he immediately diagnosed a different issue. His staff was energetic and compassionate.

I've known Dr. Hodges for a long time and there was no one else I even considered when I needed an evaluation of my neck and back. He is always attentive and is genuinely concerned about his patient.
