Dr. Wells is a very compassionate doctor and listed to my symptoms. After an in house X-ray he was able to show me what my issue was before I left the office. Very kind and knowledgeable!
The nurse was running behind with another patient so the actual doctor was the one who came out and got me from the waiting room and took my history. I was taken in about 5min after my appointment time and was out with x-rays, a shot, and a prescription within an hour. Pretty awesome service.

This is the most efficient ortho office I've ever been to. Dr Wells explained things well and listened intently. I was very pleased with his recommendations.
Was pleased with the excellent and prompt service.
I had no idea how expensive an x ray and a couple of PT sessions would be. Very expensive so try to get as much info on pricing beforehand as possible. Dr. Wells is very very nice though. Their physical therapist is awesome too. Sweet lady. If you're going in for something small, just make sure you know what you're paying for.
I arrived a few minutes before my post surgical appointment and was seen by the doctor almost immediately. My stitches were removed and I was out of the office within minutes. The staff very personable and caring.
Great over all experience! Very professional and kind. Filled out my forms on ZocDoc before arrival for my appointment. Still had to fill out the forms AGAIN at the doctors office. This is one of my biggest pet peeves with ZocDoc. This has happened to me more than once before. So give yourself extra time to fill out forms. The pre-filling out form option would be great if it actually worked! Hopefully ZocDoc will do something about this in the future.
Helpful staff. Dr was considerate and nice.
Very professional and punctual. Staff was courteous and informative. Highly recommend this physician.
