Dr. Estess was amazing and very helpful with my injury and made me feel optimistic about it. She did various testsand told me the options for treatments in detail. She gave me very great advice with no pressure at all. I highly recommend seeing her. She really cares about her patients unlike most doctors I visited in the past.

I've had quite a bit of ortho work, so I've met a lot of ortho surgeons. She's pleasant, clear, knowledgeable, and read my notes ahead of time so that I was able to get in before my appt for xrays instead of wasting time. She and her support staff are good.

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 that I 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 treats her 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 articulate in explaining my issue. The treatment plan she perscribed was both pragmatic and effective- only what is needed.

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
