Very unprofessional and rude. His office staff were rude as well. Put into a strap shoe for a broken that was too small (my toes were hanging over the edge) and told to deal with it. The Drs bedside manner wasrude and unapproachable. I will never return or recommend.

After making me wait an hour, a nurse came in to tell me that Dr Davis was still late and would not be coming for a long time. She did not even offer to try and satisfy my complaints. Terrible service and terrible commitment to patient satisfaction.

Good dr— but had me, as well as several patients and their children, waiting for over an hr for our appointment. I was very specific about wanting an early appt since I work nights, the earliest available was 2:00pm. I wasn’tseen until 3:20... an apology was issued, but I would have appreciated the apology and/or explanation earlier on rather 1hr & 20 minutes later. The dr himself was very knowledgeable and explained my injury and treatment thoroughly. I will continue to see him but really would appreciate timeliness. Perhaps less double booking?

Everything was fine except the wait time. You can't have a policy that penalizes you financially if you forget to cancel your appointment, then makes you wait over an hour. I understand the importance of being respectful, but it has towork both ways. My time is just as important as their time.

They did not call in my prescription like they said they would. CVS did not have it when I went to get it. I called the office and had to ask them to send it. I waited at the pharmacy foran hour standing on my aching knee and when I finally got it it was the completely wrong prescription. I had been there so long at that point that everyone at the office was gone so I had to leave without the right one.

Had a very horrible experience with Dr. Davis. I went to the Dr. with a minor meniscus tear. A MRI showed a minor outer tear. The Dr. recommended a minor surgery to correct it. I went with the surgery after assurancesfrom Dr. that I will be much better after surgery. After surgery, the Dr. said that the tear was bigger and was more interior than as suggested by the MRI. My anticipated week long recovery turned into months of physiotherapy, multiple draining of the knee etc. Since the swelling of the knee persisted, a second MRI was done. The new MRI suggested that the original tear was still there. Dr. insisted that he had done a thorough inspection of the meniscus during surgery, but couldn’t find any additional tear than the one he found and fixed, but recommended a SECOND surgery to correct the original issue. As before, this time also assured a complete recovery, but I never went for it considering my experience. After all the pain, inconvenience, and fees my minor and occasional knee pain before surgery has become a nagging and a constant issue. I consulted a second Dr. who said that the original tear as shown by MRI is still there. On top of this the Dr. office has a horrible accounting system and staff that misses payments and insurance credits.

Dr. Davis has twice now identified on MRIs the cause of my knee problems that other doctors completely missed. Dr. Davis was also my surgeon for my ACL reconstruction/meniscus repair. In short, he's the only orthopedic I trust and I won't waste my time/money with any other orthos.

Dr. Davis is arrogant and uncaring. His staff is cold and uncaring. He left me in a great deal of pain. I would avoid making an appointment. There are plenty of better professionals in this area, I have never received worse follow up care. Don't go.

This was a very efficient office, checking me in quickly as a new patient, and moving me through various tasks in a friendly, no -nonsense manner. I particularly appreciated the thoroughness of their questionnaire that helped me describe everyaspect of the pain I was experiencing. Dr. Davis looked carefully at all the information, including x-rays, asked further questions, and clearly explained what may be going on with me. He also patiently answered the questions I had. I felt in good hands from the moment I walked into this office.

This doctor didn't listen. He had his script ready and didn't care what we had to say. When I had concern about the diagnosis being correct, he just dismissed me. I didn't like this doctor at all. He spoke to uslike we are idiots. I'm not a doctor but I'm far from stupid. Even my 11 year old daughter commented that she did not like this doctor. He was unhelpful. She called it a "useless appointment".
