What People Say About Dr. William Workman, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Reply
Dr. Workman performed my TKR which unfortunately failed shortly thereafter leaving me to have a revision fourteen months later by another surgeon. At my second, third, and last post-op appts. I expressed my concern regarding my continued excruciating pain and lack of progression through PT. My concerns were ignored and the blame put back on me for not working harder in my recovery. To which was the furthest from the truth. His arrogance and lack of responsibility was a enormous disappointment.

Dr. Workman has mended our son's collarbone and replaced our daughter's ACL Dr. Workman is excellent at being attentive and listening to his patients. One of the surgeries had unexpected complications and Dr. Workman's followups and care was fantastic!

Dr. Workman gave me a new shoulder after fixing my torn labrum. My shoulder bothered me for years. I finally have two working shoulders thanks to Dr. Workman. He genuinely wants to help people get better. Would highly recommend.
