Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr. Pearce attempted arthroscopic repair of my shoulder. I continued to dislocate after surgery. When I told him it was a failure in my post-op appointments he was so incredibly dismissive that I had to find a second surgeon for revision.

I experienced a ruptured achilles which is easily the most serious injury of my life. Dr. Pearce was very thorough in helping explain the process all the way through and I had 0 issues post-surgery. Would definitely recommend him!

I sustained a serious knee injury while snow skiing. Dr. Pearce identified the issues that needed to be addressed (ACL reconstruction) and successfully repaired all issues. I am 100% satisfied with Dr. Pearce and his staff!

Second knee replacement with Dr Pearce and this one is doing as well as the first. I would highly recommend Dr Pearce for any orthopedic work. I have had hip revision, carpel tunnel and two knees done and am very satisfied.

After a bad break of my tibia and fibula, Doctor Pearce fixed me up surprisingly fast allowing me to get back to things much quicker than I had expected. One of the best medical experiences I've ever had.

Dr Stephen Pearce and Austin Bone and Joint (OACT) team have been great to work with dealing with my broken ankle, from the initial consultation and surgery, to check ups and physical therapy. I hope to never have to see Dr. Pearce again, but if I have any future injuries of the bone and joint variety they will be my first call.

I can always depend on Dr. Pearce to do a thorough exam, a detailed history and give me options for treatment that are not surgical. I completely trust him. I know if surgery is required, he has the skill and experience to do it well.

After years of limping around with two bad knees, replacing the left knee was a game changer. Recovery was fast and the pain level was very low, compared to the pain I felt before the surgery.
