Bedside manner is awful. Will never recommend him, nor will ever see him again. Wasted visit. Arrogant and not easy to talk to or approachable.

My hip replacement experience was very good. Well worth the time so I could get back to life and ride motorcycle with my husband. The intense learning all the way trough was great.

It has been 6 months since my hip replacement and it is wonderful. No more living with pain 24/7. Avera Orthopedics/Dr. Ambrose are great.
