What People Say About Dr. Ty Endean, DO
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I had my shoulder surgery on 4-26-2019. The doctor who did the surgery is Dr. Ty Endean. I want to start out by saying that he is "Amazing." I think he is a Great Doctor and Surgeon. His bedside manners are great and he listens carefully to what you say to him. After I had my shoulder surgery he did such a great job that I did not have to take any pain medication at all. I was very nervous and scared right before my surgery that day and Dr. Endean came over and talked to me and told me that there was nothing to worry about that he would take good care of me, and he did. I would highly recommend Dr. Endean to everyone. I also would like to let everyone know that his office staff is Great also. They are all very knowledgeable and very friendly and helpful as well. Dr. Endean is the Best.

I was referred to Dr Endean a couple of years ago after my son broke his arm and had been seen by another doctor at the hospital. Dr Endean's staff was awesome. Dr Endean made my son feel comfortable and truly cared about him and making sure there would be no long term effects from the break. I have since referred 8 people to him and every single one of them think he is the best!

A while back, he operated on my husband's torn meniscus; however, he operated on the wrong knee! When the staff realized the mistake, he closed up the wrong knee and proceeded to open up the correct knee. My husband was asked over 10 times which knee was going to be operated on and the correct knee was shaved, prepped with iodine and Endean even came in and marked and initialed the correct knee -- and he still operated on the wrong knee! We later found out this wasn't his first mistake.

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.

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)
