The office was able to get my electronic paperwork via Zocdoc, but they still had some paperwork to fill out. It didn't take long. Then I saw the radiologist who was very helpful and then Dr. Estess. It was nice thatI saw the doctor who I originally signed up for and not a PA who sits in for the doctor's patients. Dr. Estess evaluated my situation and acted right away to prescribe stronger medicine since this was the third time seeing a doctor for the same injury.

This is my daughter's 3rd injury in which she has seen Doctor Estess and I have total confidence in the care my daughter has received from her. Dr. Estess is very thorough, and really takes everything into consideration when she treatsher patients. My daughter plays soccer and volleyball and Dr. Estess has been been great at getting her back on track to play as quickly as she can without jeopardizing her healing. She is friendly, caring, and patient. She makes you feel very comfortable, is easy to talk to, and answers all of your questions. My daughter loves her. The staff is incredibly friendly and was very helpful to me in sorting out our confusing insurance questions. Even my daughter (who is 15) made a point of commenting how everyone in the office is so genuinely nice!

Ample free parking, clean welcoming office. Staff was kind and attentive. I needed xrays and they were able to provide in just a few moments- no need to travel to an alternative location. Dr. Estess was extremly knowledgeable and articulatein explaining my issue. The treatment plan she perscribed was both pragmatic and effective- only what is needed.

She was super thorough and took the time to explain what was going on with me. She didn't treat me like a piece of meat or tried to get me out of the room quickly, which I appreciated a lot. She defiantly knows her stuff.

Loved her! Very professional and attentive, knows her stuff. Her staff is also very nice and helpful! Only comment will be that they need to validate parking better. With that said, I would definitely go back without a doubt!

I had a great experience- I saw Dr. Estess today for a fracture in my left thumb. My PCP saw me Friday and recommended me to an orthopedic surgeon and I booked Dr. Estess from the few options I was given.She was attentive, present to me and my needs only (unlike most physicians who are multi-tasking), informative and patient with describing the answers to my questions. Even gave me a few recommendations for post therapy beyond my surgery and offered to make a personal appointment for me with other offices of my choice, simply because she cared that I did not wait to long getting my surgery. Overall, great doctor with professional and helpful staff. Exceeded my expectations and I will certainly recommend others here for sports injuries. -Justin G. 8.10.2015
