Patient Comments (4)

Dr Earman did surgery on both of my knees one around three months ago and one three years ago. I am very happy with the results. He is a very kind doctor and takes time to listen to everything you have to say. I would definitely use him again if needed

Did only one of my disks in my back and missed the other one somehow. His reason being was that the other one didn't look like it was causing you pain so I left it alone.

I make appointments to see Dr. Earman and although he is in a Nurse Practioner comes in to see you instead of the doctor. I'm not paying for that knowledge. There should be an option. My other doctors if there not in you have an option of seeing a NP. For simple things yes, but for more...more

I have been going to Dr Earman for approximately 9 years. He explains procedures in detail and that's important to me.
