Here are some of our favorites:
I have free range of motion, even more so than I ever did before, and I don’t have to worry about holding anything heavy or injuring it or damaging it again. It’s awesome! – Angie
I wish I had done this two years earlier. To come out of surgery and in 3 weeks have less pain than I did before – it was awesome. – Debora
I had chronically torn my ACL, and chronically torn my medial meniscus in my left knee…I knew surgery was inevitable. I’m definitely glad that I did the research that I did and chose Texas Ortho. It can be a very helpless and hopeless feeling to go to a doctor’s appointment and get that impression that the doctor is in a hurry and wants to get to the next patient. With Dr. Hurt, that was never the case. He did a very good job at developing the doctor-patient relationship and really and truly understanding the history of what was going on with my injury. – Derek
When I first met Dr. McDonald, he was very good at explaining what was going on with my hip. Prior to meeting him, I had no idea what was going on. My hip was hurting all the time, I was fearful it was something that was never going to go away…he made me feel comfortable; that is was something we could work through together. – Lori
Now I swim; I do a lot of walks; I do whatever machine I want to at the gym. – Beverly
At first, my body wasn’t responding to any treatment, and I was getting really hopeless. And it was really hard for me to stay positive because I know there is no cure. Dr. Koval and the other medical professionals and administrative staff took their time with me…and they really care about the people that they see, and you can just sense that. – Amanda
Dr. Laverty was the on-site orthopedic surgeon at X Games Austin in 2015 when I was competing in BMX Big Air and had an accident that resulted in bilateral calcaneus fractures, torn ACL, and fractured L-2. After assessing the damage, Dr. Laverty put a plan together that put me first while considering my future ability to compete.
After surgery Dr. Laverty came to my room, pulled up a chair, and explained the extent of my injuries, how he fixed the damage done, walked me through the recovery process, and discussed my long-term outcome.
I never felt at any point during my experience that I was just another patient he needed to talk to on his way to the next patient. Dr. Laverty is a highly skilled surgeon that cares about his patients and has surrounded himself with a good team as well. – Chad Kagy, BMX competitor
Both Dr. James Smith and Dr. Peter Garcia have always been professional, friendly, forthright with explaining the nature of whatever is wrong and is/or possible be the problem and whether there was a way to fix/reduce the problem or whether there is nothing that can be done. Texas Orthopedics is a diamond and with the addition of Dr. James Smith, a rare diamond. – Cheryl M.
Thank you for your wonderful efficiency and joyful attitudes at the Central location. We were greeted with big smiles and kind voices. It was wonderful that Dr. Mukai came out herself to take us back to a room right away. – Patricia P.
I saw Dr. Hardy for a second opinion and I wish I had gone to him first! – Carol D.
Dr. Goldberg and Jared have been so helpful on my visits. – Caroline B.
My life is wonderful with the new knees. In 2006, I could not walk because of the pain. Now, I can use both legs to go up and down the stairs. I would like to express my appreciation to Dr. Smith and his PA Jerry. I thank you very much for all you have done for me. – Haruko S.
I'm thoroughly impressed with Dr. Bunch. He has the rare combination most people look for in a doctor: extremely intelligent but also friendly and compassionate. He welcomes questions and gives you his full attention. His NP Angel is equally amazing, and I feel every bit as confident in the level of care when I have an appointment with her. Really a great team! – Susan P.
Dr. Mukai and Meredith Albright, PT have been terrific. My back pain is nearly gone thanks to them. I know I'll feel better soon and I appreciate the care and compassion they both provided. – Susan F.
Dr. Smoot changed my life. Thank you for your impeccable service to your field. Mike is a super nice guy as well. – Dan H.
Dr. Hurt was particularly nice and explained everything very clearly. He also was very conscious of the cost of MRI procedures, which I appreciate. – Brad K.
Dr. Kilbride has excellent customer service skills along with staff. I would only use Dr. Earl Kilbride, he is the best! – Donna C.
I spent over 30 years working in allied health care. Over those years I got pretty good at spotting quality in medical practices and I've gotta say that I think Dr. Smoot and the staff at Texas Orthopedics are the cream of the crop! Dr. Smoot is one of those rare physicians who actually listens with both ears and patiently discusses issues at hand while seated and looking you in the eye. He's obviously smart, but also empathetic, thoughtful & funny. – Sue R.
