Patient Reviews (13)
in Las Vegas, NV |
The whole experience from office visits to the hospital stay to the follow up visits was excellent. Very professional care, very concerned staff.
in Henderson Nevada |
Extremely knowledgeable about joints and pain and the discomfort that goes along with it. Before and after surgery Dr. Trainor explained in detail what to expect.

This is my second knee no pain at all. No problem at all
in Las Vegas, NV |
Dr. Trainor was very understanding about my knee and told me exactly what will happen. It was a very good experience. His assistant Mia is terrific as well. She has taken care of my knee with pain shots for a number of times and never once did I feel any pain. She is also very caring.
in North Las Vegas, NV |
My experience with Dr. Trainor and his staff has been outstanding. He and his staff are professional, caring and understanding, especially when it comes to the athlete who wants to get back to training as soon as possible. He is the 'go to' doctor for athletes in the Las Vegas area.
in Henderson, NV |
not only is he highly skilled, pleasant, and professional, but his entire staff and front office are exceptionally efficient. not only is each office visit efficiently choreographed, stage by stage, but each appointment was on time with no waiting time.

I would not even consider coming here again. As a new patient, scheduled to see Dr Timothy Trainor, I was seen by a PA instead, without even asked if it was okay. I was told by my vein specialist (who is chief of surgery at a local hospital) that the swelling in my leg is orthopedic related. The PA saw me less than 5 minutes and referred me to therapy and a cardiologist! I feel as if this visit was a waste of my time and money.
in Las Vegas, NV |
I have had both of my knees operated on by Dr. Trainor he is the best. Do not go to anyone else in this town!!! He is very nice and will explain all your options before any surgery is needed.. Love him if I could give him a million stars I would.
in Las Vegas, NV |
I was referred to Dr. Tim Trainor this year when my back and hip pain due to arthritis were severe. I was ready for a hip replacement. The only; people I talked to other than the office staff was an intern taking notes and a physician's assistant. Between them they decided my back was worse than my hip and I needed to see a lumbar surgeon. They would not give me suggestion of who was best to go to. This type of doctor would not be direct competition to them. It was a wasted visit.

Dr. Trainor is phenomenal!
in Las Vegas Nevada |
Dr. Trainor and his medical assistants are knowledgeable, professional and personable. I appreciate when a doctor comes into the room and sits down and is attentive and not rushed. Dr. Trainor does just that. All of my questions & concerns were adequately addressed before and after the procedure. He uses modern methods of communication to check on you daily, which I loved.
in Las Vegas, NV |
Dr. Tim has been my ortho doctor for several years,He has scoped my knee, recommended replacement but due to my allergy to metal, I am not a candidate. I have had cortisone, which was a temporary help, but now having the gel injections. His PA Mia is caring, knowledgeable, and makes me feel important, always ready to share and answer questions. I highly recommend Dr. Tim, and the entire Ortho service he is connected with. I have also seen other Dr.s in the office and everyone is highly caring
in Las Vegas, NV |
My experience with Dr Tim was exceptional. The before care and after care is a bit lackadaisical. I did like the online messaging with his staff but there were several disconnects with my recovery schedule. But the surgery was fantastic.
