in Oak Ridge, TN |
Dr. Grace and staff are excellent. I had surgery on my foot and it's been a long process but he has always been there to answer questions when I had them. His staff always calls back within a timely manner and are very helpful. He and the nurses have turned a bad situation for me into an as pleasant as can be. Still recovering but getting there.

There are many reasons to like Dr. Grace. He genuinely cares about my health and wellbeing. One of the things I like most about him is the way he talks with me rather than talking at me. He doesn't just come in, spend a few seconds looking me over then ramble off a bunch of medical terminology. He makes sure I understand everything he's saying and he never comes off as condescending. He's a fantastic guy with a great group of people working in his office.

Dr. Grace, in a clear and concise manner, helped me to understand my shoulder injury and the options available. He was honest and forthcoming in his recommendation. I chose to have my shoulder repaired by Mr. Grace and I am pleased that I did. He did an excellent job and monitored my recovery closely. I received much guidance from Mr. Grace and would highly recommend him to anyone needing shoulder surgery. As a matter of fact, all of the staff, I came in contact with, were great.
Olen Sulfridge, we are so pleased you enjoyed your visit with Sean Patrick Grace, M.D.!

Lori, we are so pleased you enjoyed your visit with Sean Patrick Grace, M.D.!
in Knoxville, TN |
Dr. Grace has operated on me twice in the last 8 years. Both times I had significant injuries, and both times Dr. Grace has fixed me and made me better and stronger than I was before. In my opinion he is the best Orthopedic surgeon on the East Coast. I can say this with confidence because I visited several of them for my shoulder over a 12 year span and they all refused to help me. Dr. Grace took me right in and fixed me right up. I will only ever trust Dr. Grace for any of my Orthopedic needs!
in Oak Ridge, TN |
Great surgeon! And a nice guy. I have had no problems since I had my right bicep tendon repaired. GO VOLS!
in Oak Ridge, TN |
Dr. Grace is excellent! He has a great demeanor, listens carefully, provides options for your recovery, and is very practical in his approach/treatment. I had cartilage in my right knew (both outer and inner sides) that had to be trimmed/removed due to swelling, decreased flexibility, and an inability to push off while playing basketball. His office staff were great to work with in terms of scheduling appointments, getting forms completed, and with their general happy attitudes.
in Oak Ridge, TN |
Dr. Grace saw me after I fell and dislocated my shoulder. He was very thorough explaining the injury and what he could do to correct the problem. The surgery went well, and Dr. Grace was readily available when I had questions. I would recommend Dr. Grace without reservation.

Dr. Grace is absolutely amazing!! I love him and all his staff.

Dr. Sean Grace is an excellent orthopedic surgeon. He is very professional, very knowledgable, very friendly and cares about his patients.

Appointments are set for staff convenience and angrily changed for the patience. The behavior is unnecessary . Staff changes appointment schedule to suit the staffs needs demanding patients drop their current events to meet the needs of the staff. Staff fail to communicate with patients. Patients that choose to find a more appropriate facility for treatment are told if they don't continue under the current Dr. They will be 'black listed' meaning they are not allowed treatment any where else.
Hi Jr, we appreciate you taking the time to respond. The staff at Tennessee Orthopaedic Clinics take our reviews very seriously.
