He is very warm and friendly, yet professional. I really like him as a doctor and feel he is top notch. He performed a lateral release of the knee cap on my left knee. It was painful at first but he gave me meds for the pain. He fixed it. A year later, it is 100 percent better. I can highly recommend him. You feel at ease with him and his ability as a surgeon.

I am a retired RN who practiced for 40 years. I have interacted w/ many physicians. Dr. Estes stands out as a very compassionate, capable, professional doctor. He has operated on me twice, very successfully.. When my husband and I go for my F/u visits he welcomes us as though we are personal friends. He is unhurried, very personable and acts as though you are his only pt. I cannot recommend him or his support staff highly enough.

He is the most caring apathetic doctor with a wonderful attitude. He is kind which meant probably more to me my my healing than anything. He totally fixed my left knee. We, initially hoped it was only a tear and osteoarthritis but in surgery he found unused cartilage under my knee cap and did a more involved complicated procedure called a lateral release of the knee cap. It hurt but 3 months later I was good as new and it had been almost a year with no significant problems. I am very grateful
he performed surgery for a torn rotator cuff and despite all the warnings from others I had very little pain. Dr Estes was a great listener which is vital for a good dr but also very thorough in making sure my progress through rehab was successful. I would recommend him to anyone needing orthpedic surgery
in Mt Pleasant, SC |
Even though I was referred from the emergency room I was treated as though I had always been a patient. I had a simple break at my wrist but he saw me himself at each visit. I was impressed.
