The most unprofessional experience I have had the displeasure of enduring. The office staff is very arrogant and unhelpful. They scheduled my surgery twice and had to cancel both time due to errors on their part. I would NEVER recommend.

The costs of EVERYTHING in this office are ridiculous! I don't know how they justify the rates such as $35 to put an ice pack on an injury for 5 minutes! Not to mention the high monthly payments required to avoid collections. I have never even met Dr Dube but my wallet feels like I should have! No regard for what is best for the patient. Simply a means to collect a large sum of cash!

Dr. Dube was great to work with. Our son received a broken arm while snowboarding last Christmas. He worked us in almost immediately upon our return to TN. It took six weeks to heal due to the nature of the break but Dr. Dube and his staff made sure all along the way that our son knew the importance of letting it heal even though he wanted to return to sports. He was able to return to competing within 4 weeks and it hurt to play but that did not stop him. Now he is completely healed and talking about snowboarding once again this coming Winter. Thanks Dr. Dube and staff for all of your care and treatment.

Had my knee scoped in November 2017 and some arthritis smoothed off. At times knee is now worse than before surgery. Had to have a drug test before the scope - was told that it was required of all patients before surgery - the charge to insurance was $7500. Totally, totally unnecessary. I echo others that costs seem high. Was able to see Dr. Dube periodically on my visits but not every time.

Dr. Dube is one of the best doctors I’ve ever been too and he is very smart and educated in his field. Dr. Dube AND his staff are very nice people and to the point, no bs. Jeff, the nurse practitioner, is awesome as well! I can’t tell you enough how thankful I am to have this group on my side! ??

Watch your wallet! This place only wants your money for bogus charges of things you don't even need!! Take noting on your visit and research if you do go! Get second opinion! First you never see the dr but your insurance pays as if you did! You then have to go to HIS physical therapy dept. then i was given a brace wic in fact i did not need! This place needs to be watched as this is why healthcare cost is out of control! Office staff is rude and basically do not care.

Even with an insurance this place is so expensive. Feels like a trap for money. We went for a small injury and we have been caught in a cycle of never ending charges. Although quality of service is good, there is no real conversation with the patient especially when it comes to more affordable options. Will not recommend. Also we never really saw Dr Dube himself.

Highly recommend. When I broke my arm last year the ER gave me a name of a doctor to follow up with for a cast. When I called that office, they could not get me in for 3 days. I called Dr. Dube's office and they worked me in the next day. Jeff placed my cast during his lunch. Very friendly staff and super accommodating.

Dr. Dube saved me from having a risky, unnecessary surgery. I was told by a neurosurgeon that my bulging disc in my neck needed to be surgically repaired or I would lose use of my left arm. I went to Dr. Dube for a second opinion. He encouraged me to do physical therapy instead of surgery. I was skeptical and scared, but with 6 weeks of physical therapy my pain improved. It's been 4 years and I have not had any problems and I am still working out and running as I was prior to injury.

I had to throw a fit to see Dr Dube. They always want you to see his assistant. I was there for my son and we were paying for Dube so we don't want to see an assistant. The whole office is rude and I will NEVER GO THERE AGAIN. Its like a factory, the doctor don't care who you are, your just a dollar amount to him.
