Great visit. Dr. Hewitt is very personable. No nonsense approach is appreciated. Went through the history, reviewed my options, and I'm off to get further imaging on my shoulder. I feel very comfortable as an athlete that he will help me get back into my favorite sports with the correct approach.

Dr Hewitt and his office were great. He is funny and has great bedside manner. I also love that he also believes that treatment should start with the basics and go up from there if needed. Not into lots of expensive tests to start your visit.

This was my first appointment with Dr. Hewitt and his staff, but they were very helpful and answered all my questions. He definitely spent more time with me than other orthos I've seen, which was great. I thought his front office was especially nice, because they put some extra issue into helping me with an insurance issue I was having. I like that I can email him and his assistant with questions whether than coming in and paying another co-pay.

I understand that things happen and I expect a wait when I go to the doctor but over an hour is pretty crazy. It was conveyed to me (after I asked) that there was something in the morning that made the rest of the appointments get pushed back. However, the receptionist didn't know this until 5 o'clock (my appt was at 4). Kind of ridiculous. However, when I did meet with the doctor, he was great.

I really liked Dr. Hewitt. It's scary to trust your joints to someone. He was very knowledgable and couldn't have been nicer. I was referred to him by an ER doc. It always a hard thing finding a doctor. Dr. Hewitt made me instantly glad he was my guy.
