"Dr. Ogelsby is a 10!"

We have been seeing Dr. Oglesby for about 20 years for multiple issues. Getting older is not for sissies. He has repaired our shoulders, hand, knees, and addressed spine issues. He is the BEST! Always friendly and personable, but very professional at the same time, explaining and describing our problems and procedures. Cannot say enough about him and his staff. Dana, his PA, has given me excellent care when Dr. Oglesby was not immediately available. Thank you all for the great care through the years. I rate them a "10." Much respect and love for Dr. Oglesby.

"My knee feels as good as new!"

Dr. West was amazing and my knee feels as good as new! I had a slight tear in my meniscus and also some “debris” around my patella from a home improvement accident. I tried to give it time for five months, but it was not improving. I’d start the day pain free, but by dinner time each day I couldn’t put weight on it and this was my daily pattern for months. When I finally went to the doctor for it, Dr. West immediately diagnosed the issue from the MRI and scheduled the surgery. He explained what the damage was and was very reassuring that he could fix it. He kept his word! During two weeks recovery time, the knee was already feeling better than it was pre surgery! I highly recommend Dr. West!

Hip Replacement Success with Dr. William Kurtz

I had hip pain for five months leading up to finding someone I was comfortable with and doing a hip replacement. My surgery was on April 15th, 2021. I will say, I was never more impressed with someone as Dr. Kurtz. The first time I stood up on my feet, a few hours of surgery, I never had any pain. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

"Four Months Post Surgery and NO Pain!"

I started out seeing Mark McIntosh, who was great. He kept digging for the cause of the injury to my right ankle that happened out of the blue. Because the issue had become more than we initially thought...enter Dr. Yu, and as he was described to me by another doctor, "We call him MacGyver." That is a true statement. My injury was unique due to a previous surgery 1.5 years ago. Dr. Yu figured out how we could fix it and mapped it out. I am now four months after surgery with NO pain. I can't thank him and Mark enough for sticking with me through it and giving me my ability to walk my dog again. They are a great team!

"Five Stars" for Dr. Philip A.G. Karpos

I was referred by my doctor to Dr. Karpos, made an appointment on Monday, and I was in his office on Tuesday. I have met a lot of doctors, but his "bedside" manners were AWESOME. He took the time to explain to me what was going on with my Hip {Got an injection} and I walked out better than I did going in. The entire staff was very professional and friendly. I would recommend him to anyone. You guys get Five Stars from me.
