I would highly recommend Dr. David Hovis an his Team! I have bad knees, an Dr. David looks at the long Term effect of the care he gives an provides to you. He placed screws in my right knee over 10 years ago because of my age an knee replacement wasn't as advanced at the time. My screws are still in, an I have 0 pain in my right knee. Thank you Dr. David for taking that extra time to do the right procedure for me at that time.

We saw Dr. Hovis for a second opinion and ended up staying with him. He explained our son's knee injury in an easy-to-understand but in-depth way, answering all of our questions and spending time formulating a pre- and post-op plan for his surgery. We were immediately impressed with his knowledge and experience, and felt fully confident going in to surgery. Our son is 6 months post-op now and was just cleared for sports again. Highly recommend Dr. Hovis.

He's a good Dr but never takes you on time with wait times over an hour past the appointment time. The worst was almost a 2 hour wait. Even when I was his first appointment of the day it was 35 minute wait. I can't figure it out since I only see him for 10 or so minutes.

He listened to my concerns and asked a lot of questions that told me he was paying attention. I felt like he really wanted to help me and that he cared.
