What People Say About Dr. Timothy Damron, MD

Dr Damron has performed 3 surgeries on me, bilateral hip replacements(one hip at a time) and bilateral knee replacements(both at once). I got skiddish after 1st surgery, didn't want to do them 6 weeks apart but was forced to, I got severely ill. When it was time to do my knees he told me he was not going to be inconvenienced by my indecisiveness and they only way he would perform the surgery was if both were done at the same time. He shattered my femur and I ended up needing a lift to transfer.

Dr. Damron is truly the best kind of Dr you want fighting for your cause. His demeanor is kind, intelligent and thorough. His professionalism is top notch. I was a patient for a hip surgery and from the moment I met him until the time.of surgery, I went from scared of the unknown to confident in the unknown. Everywhere I go, people ask who did the surgery, and every time I mention Dr Damrons name, I listen to the wonderful healing experiences of others. He is absolutely worth the wait!

Dr. Damron did a bi-lateral total knee replacement at Upstate University Hospital in 2009 or 2010. Time flies when you can walk without pain so I am unsure of the year. In my book, he walks on water. What is great is I can now walk comfortably on land. Thank-you Dr. Damron.

I recently saw Dr. Damron for soft tissue tumor. He is absolutely everything you wanted from a surgeon. Precise, confident and trustful. People who don't want to wait a little bit longer to see Dr. Damron, find somebody else. But I would wait what ever it takes to see him.
