Dr. Volatile Is the greatest. He is caring, he listens to your problems, and explains your options in language that the average person can understand. I very highly recommend him.

had complete hip replacement,100% better. 9 weeks later, no pain. thanks dr. volatile.
in Tyler, TX |
One year post-op follow up for a Left Total Knee Replacement was short simple and sweet, because Dr. Volatile did a wonderful job a year ago and now my knee is BIONIC. If/when I must have the right knee done, he's the one!
Tyler, TX |
Dr. VOLATILE has surgically replaced both my shoulders. I was skeptical about having it done but after the first one I knew I was going to do the other. I was in such pain and the shots only helped for a while. I am 1 week postoperative and I am in pain but not like before. I am healing well, no outside stitches to remove. If I need a surgeon for another part I will certainly use Dr. Volatile.
in Sulphur Springs, TX |
Wasn't pleased with him at all..Have knee issues and he didn't even ask questions about my problems,visit was quick and said nothing was wrong.I've had knee injections for 2 yrs but he said to take ibuprofen or tylenol..No other suggestions although by another dr was diagnosed with bone spurs arthritis and meniscus problems..Made a comment on my disability..Felt he wasnt concerned about my pain just more about knee replacement or not...Back home with pain and no help..
in Tyler, TX |
Please disregard my previous review. Dr. Volitile had no control over the situation that we were involved in, he is a very compassionate and caring doctor and my mother has returned to him for her follow-up care as well as care for another issue. We would highly recommend him to anyone. Thank you.

Time means nothing to him. First appointment, was almost 1 1/2 hours late. Had to have 4 x-rays done in his office, even though I had 3 of them 3 days before and they had been sent to his office. Obviously, uses x-rays as a cash cow. My knee surgery was almost 4 hours later than scheduled. I went in for my followup, supposedly having the 1st appointment in the morning. I left after a 1/2 hour as I still hadn't been called from waiting area and had another appointment that morning.
in Tyler, TX |
I think that Dr. Volatile is the very best knee replacement surgeon it the country. I have had an excellent recovery from my full knee replacement. He knows how important it was to make certain everything was aligned during the surgery so my outcome would be successful. Thank you for taking such excellent care with my surgery.
