I've been a long time patient of Dr. John Zenos. He's the best doctor I've ever seen: great bedside manner, cares a great deal about the patient, and thinks "out of the box" to solve difficult orthopedic problems. I have recommended him to many in my family and circle of friends, all of which have been very happy with his care. You won't be disappointed!

Appreciated the extra time he spent with me to answer the many questions I had. I didn't feel rushed while reviewing the MRI and being able to have some dialogue around different options was a nice bonus.

I was fortunate to get a cancellation when I went to his office. The young lady that sits up front and found the cancellation was wonderful to deal with. She did everything possible to help me out. I was able to get my appt for later that afternoon. I arrived and was seen immediately and met with one of his members of his stafff and he was extremely profession with the personal touch and had a great sense of humour. He explained what Dr. Xenos would be asking. Then Dr. Xenos came in and was nothing but fantastic and again, extremely profession, but was able to put a sense of humour into his exam. He was able to exam me and we will be going in for hip replacement surgery in October. What a tremendous experience with his staff. Candy did everything she could to find a early time for surgery and also put me on a cancellation list if one came up. This was extremely refreshing and I very much want to thank Dr. Jamrich for recommending this wonderful Dr. and his staff. Thanks to all that helped me. You were wonderful.

Dr. Xenos was recommended to my husband for his knee replacement a few years ago and he really liked him, so I decided to have him do my hip replacement. Many in the Karval community have had Dr. Xenos do their knee and hip replacements, and everyone thinks very highly of him. We all feel like he is the best! He takes his time while visiting with you and seems very concerned about your health. He is very friendly and easy to talk to. I feel very confident having him as my doctor.

I am very impressed with Dr Xenos! I saw him for hip surgery, and he is an expert in that field. In addition to being extremely well-qualified, he is very kind, professional, and encouraging. I have not yet had the surgery, but I'm sure everything will go very well. I recommend him very highly to anyone who may need joint surgery.

You may wait a few minutes, but during your appointment with him, you have 100% of his attention and he answers all your questions. This appointment was for an evaluation of shoulder injuries. I have had two previous hip surgeries with Dr. Xenos and the results were excellent!

Dr Xenos is a good listener, but more important he knows what he's doing. He doesn't push you into surgery, but supplies you with the information needed for you to make your own decision.

Dr. Xenos and his staff are the best. I would recommend them to family and friends even if they didn't have need for an orthopedic surgeon. Dr. Xenos tells you exactly how it is and recommends less invasive alternatives to surgery first. But if you need surgery, you would be hard pressed to find a better professional.

Dr. Zenos was very professional in what he had to say in regards to my treatment. He answered all of my questions so that I fully understood what I am looking at as far as surgery and rehabilitation.

I think Dr. Xenos is a wonderful doctor. I have complete confidence in him and have recommended him without hesitation. Office wait time is problematic and he is well aware of this issue. That being said, I would wait for him and his staff in office visits knowing the kind of care I receive(d). After waiting to see him, the patient does not seem rushed once he enters the examination room.

The wait is long, but it's worth it. I've been to several other doctors for my shoulder injury. Dr. Xenos was by far the best. He is attentive, extremely knowledgeable, and willing to take as much time as you need during the appointment. I am trusting my shoulder to him.

My appt was for the 4 month evaluation with Dr. Xenos to examine the progress of my knee replacement. Dr. Xenos & his associates were very friendly, funny & knowledgeable about my progress. We discussed how well my Physical Therapy & returning to daily activities has moved me well ahead of the recovery game. Continue what I'm doing & check back in in 6 months.

Dr. Xenos does a fantastic job but the office just seems to always be late. I do appreciate that he apologized but its unreasonable to ask patients to wait for over an hour to see somebody. Upon checking out I had a conversation on this topic with the receptionist and she indicated that they are always running late. I understand the desire to see as many patients as possible and to maximize the revenue of the practice, but if they are always behind on their schedule and staff is staying late scheduling practices should be changed. I think they would be better served to just accept the situation, schedule more time per patient and extend their hours.

Doc was running behind so wait time was longer than desired and he was rushed when he finally did see me. Hopefully that's a one off thing and it was a busy day.
