Dr. Hembree is an excellent doctor. He repaired my fractured and crushed foot. I would tell anyone to go to him. I am very thankful I can walk.

I had knee replacements at Blue Ridge, but wanted a doctor who had experience doing ankle replacements. That's how I first came to Dr. Hembree. He was new to the practice but had worked at a hospital I was famiiar with and was proficient in ankle replacements. I have absolute comfidence in Dr. Hembree and am completely happy and satisfied with the surgery and treatments before and after.

Hembree and his staff at Blue Ridge are rude, hard to work with, and offer no information at all. He is incompetent and has no personal skills. I wouldn't take my dog to him. I wish I could leave less than one star. I can't emphasize their apathy and incompetence enough.

Dr Hembree was recommended to me by a friend, and he is amazing. He went above and beyond to get me in quickly and on my way to recovery. He's very professional and a skilled surgeon. He did a fantastic job and I have had a very smooth recovery. I've read horror stories on-line regarding my injury and the complications that can occur. I credit Dr Hembree for the fact that my recovery went so smoothly. I highly recommend him and his entire staff.

Totally missed diagnosed. Diagnosed torn ligament, which cause fallen arch. Went to another Dr. for 2nd opinion and this Dr. had diagnosis in less than 15 minutes with a treatment plan that gave immediate relief. Diagnosis ending up being heal spurs. I would think most any Dr. would be able to diagnose heal spurs.
