Dr Endean has done two meniscus tear repairs on my right knee and a fibula break repair on my sons right leg. He is an incredible surgeon and a great guy to talk to. He has great bedside manners and keeps you up-to-date on what is going on with and during surgery. As long as Dr. Endean is practicing medicine he will be my families go to orthopedic surgeon. Thank you Dr Endean for you gift.

My daughter tore her ACL and Meniscus! Not that it was a bad one but he prefers a cadaver, he explained why he preferred a cadaver and it made all the sense! But after more research for a 16 year old a cadaver isn't the best way to go! I was also able to get in right away and he was able to do surgery that next day if needed! When I called to cancel the surgery cause I wanted a second opinion! Office staff was short and didn't even try to ask questions, didn't even get a follow up call!

His office manager, Lisa, is very rude. I had discussed physical therapy with Dr. Endean, at my prior visit, his office manager answered the phone & i asked her to ask Dr Endean if he could send me to physical therapy. She rudely said I don't see that in your notes. She didn't even look. I had his notes in front of me and I told her that IT IS IN MY NOTES. I'm looking at it. Then she said you're gonna have to come in. I was there 2 weeks ago. This lady is clearly incompetent & unprofessional.

Every part of the entire process went well (meniscus tear). Dr. Endean and his staff were excellent: knowledgeable, courteous, prompt, accommodating, etc. The procedure went extremely well and my recovery went exactly to plan. I am a distance runner and Endean had me up and running far faster than I ever would have guessed. Highly recommended.

I have been to Dr Tye a few times for myself and a few for the wife. He's an awesome Dr I would tell all my friends to see him first

Endean charged alot of money and spent little time explaining, examining or helping me. After finding another doctor I found out I had 2 bad tears in my knee not the 1 simple tear Endean told me about. I should have been put in a brace and taken off work. He doent listen. Was told when mri was read he would treat pain. He did not. He seems more into himself and getting paid than caring about his patients and how they feel. Was the same way with my husband. Very bad doctor (using term loosely)

I have been to many dr's' over the years as my family has a genetic bone problem dr Endean knows his medical definitions and was able to answer my questions. The best part he's speeks like a person not only does this make him understandable but he really is a friend. He was not all business and he care about me as a person!

I liked Dr. Endean -he puts you at ease and explained things-or so I thought. He told me I could drive and go back to the gym when I felt up to it and that I would not need physical therapy. There was minimal pain, BUT I had no idea of the difficulty walking, getting in and out of bed, the car, etc. I was not told me the surgery was more involved . I read the report sent to the PT-lots in it that he never told me-including that I had a torn lateral meniscus as well as medial one. I requested PT.
