I'm 72 and I've seen lots of doctors with most being ok. Dr Ted set himself apart from the others. His demeanor, caring and knowledge made me choose him for my messed up shoulder. After six months recouperation, my shoulder is doing better than ever. Thank you Dr Ted ??????

Dr Ted is the best . He is very knowledgeable in his field , cares about all of his patients needs and willing to do what it takes to help them . Quick to see patients but takes his time with the patient.. there is no other orthopedic doctor in western Kentucky area that I would go to besides dr ted because of his standards of his patients .
in Benton, KY |
Wonderful doctor. Knows his stuff! Wouldn't want anyone else backing me during surgery.
in Atlanta, GA |
Dr Ted fixed my broken foot and ankle and I would recommend him to anyone
in Eddyville, Ky |
Excellent surgeon with excellent bedside manner! Treats his patients how he would like to be treated inside and outside of the operating room!! He took care of my father-in-law and I would recommend him to anyone!! Love Dr. Ted!
in Sedalia, KY |
I have nothing but the very best experiences with Dr. Ted. The only thing I would think would be a deterrence to others is that the long wait after your scheduled time. Sometimes I get a little impatient but then remind myself that when he comes in to see me he takes all the time I need, so I don't see this as a horrible problem. He is always concerned with his patient's safety and I think that should be a valid concern for any patient. by far THE best!
in Mayfield, KY |
Dr.Ted is a great guy. Always willing to answer any questions I may have . Also have talked with him away from the office at Three Rivers Martial he's always willing to help and share his knowledge in that field as well .I would highly recommend him to any one.

Dr . Jefferson's office and staff made me feel comfortable and like my care mattered. Each and every time I saw Jefferson he was awesome. He did a knee repair for me and I have no problems !! I would highly recommend Dr. Jefferson .
in Paducah, KY |
I have been going to Dr. Ted for about 4 years now and love him dearly. He has been the best doctor I have ever been too. His bedside manner is excellent and he is kind and explains all my medical needs to me in a way I can understand them. He has performed 3 surgeries on me and one was a knee replacement and I recovered from them all very fast and felt he did an excellent job as well. I would recommend him to everyone who need this type of care. He knows what he is doing and cares. Thanks Nan
in Wingo KY |
I have told all my friends and coworkers to see Dr. Ted if they need anything done! I loved him and his staff!??
in Princeton Ky |
Dr Ted did my hip replacement in March of 2017. I couldn't have been under the care of a better surgeon! He explained my hip problems and showed me on my x-ray what was going on. I see Dr Ted at every follow up appointment. Dr Ted is very caring and an excellent surgeon! I highly recommend him if you are facing an orthopedic surgery!
