Verified Patient Reviews
excellent, easy to talk to Orthopedic doctor. He isn't an alarmist and will try to avoid surgery only as a last resort. Went to him about 12 years ago and found a similar bedside manner.
Doctor and staff were welcoming and professional. I felt they were concerned with my issues. Excellent experience @
Extremely professional, informative, i.e. MD and staff
By far the cleanest up to date facility. The staff are fun and courteous. I will never go anywhere else..they are stuck with me and now my family for Life! No in out dr, no pushing for procedures, just tells it like it is! Finally a Dr that knows how to treat the patient and the injury!
Dr. Graves and the staff were able to fit me in their busy schedule. Very nice people. Highly recommend.
Dr. Graves saw me right away, gave me shots in my hips and I am good to go for another 8 months. No more pain!!!
He is a great doctor!
He was fantastic, very good thorough examination! He has a great Sense of humor! I felt very comfortable with him!
Short wait but we'll worth it. Dr Graves was very professional, spent time listening, then conducted a through exam. He explained what he was doing and what he found as he went alnog. Very happy I found him and definitely recommend.
Dr. Graves gives a thorough exam, gives his opinion of what he thinks the problem is and what tests are needed to confirm the diagnosis or detect the cause of the patient concern. The x-ray department is friendly, efficient and you are back in the exam room in no time and Dr. Graves is back in there to go over the x-rays with you pointing out areas of concern or how the x-ray looks normal. You are given an option of treatments and if needed, he refers you for further testing or therapy. Dr. Graves is open and very matter of fact regarding the diagnosis and treatment. The office staff is friendly, efficient and helpful. The environment is quiet and if your problem turns out to be better handled by someone else, there are other specialists in the practice.
I never bother to leave feedback on anything but my experience with Dr. Graves was so great I felt I had to let others know. I arrived fifteen minutes before my scheduled appointment and was called in to see the doctor right at the scheduled time. The doctor took his time and listened to what I had to say. After a quick x-ray he was back going over the results 5 minutes later. I was in and out within thirty minutes and the procedure solved the issue I was having. I also must say that his staff was excellent and friendly. I could not have had a better experience. You are in great hands with Dr. Graves!
Dr. Graves was great he was honest and up front with me, I would highly recommend him to my friends and familiy.
He is a great Doctor, knows his stuff, great sense of humor
I was very happy with my appt. with Dr. Graves.he was personable and professional. I felt I was in good hands.
Very down to earth and personable. He answered all questions I had.
He was very good and was able to tell what was wrong with my knee right away. Before the MRI, I had to have fluid removed from my joint. It was very painful, to say the least, but he was very comforting and understanding of the pain to do the procedure quickly.
Dr. Graves performed a hip replacement on me 5 years ago. I was having some pain in my right knee and wanted his expert advice on the cause. I would not trust any orthopedic problems with anyone but Dr. Graves.
Very pleasant doctor. He gave helpful and appropriate information what to do next.
Dr Graves was very informative about all my options and explained everything to me so I would understand
Md was very nice. I spent more time waiting than I did with the doctor though.
I liked the Dr. - he was practical in his recommendations. However it's hard to have a great experience when I was waiting almost 90 minutes to see the Dr. - I work too so respecting my time would be appreciated.
He knew how to fix the fractured wrist and his staff was patient and helpful in the administrating of the fix.
I didn't get much of an impression. He was only in the room for 2 minutes of my entire 2 hour stay. Put a shot in my hand, without an actual examination, and sent me on my way.
Great! And I really liked ZocDoc!
It was quick and painless.
Great office and staff!
It was great. Dr Graves very professional, well versed with excellent people skills.. Staff pleasant, polite and efficient. You don't see that very much these days. It was a pleasant experience.
Would visit again - and highly recommend
He was very professional, punctual and honest. Really liked him.
Excellent. Shortest possible wait. Fast xray and excellent information. My only complaint is that Jesus didn't show up and heal me while I was there....Someone should look into that.
