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 officewas 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 therest 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.

Very informative, he took the time to review and explain my MRI and Xrays in a way that I could understand and he presented me with numerous options. Best of all, he did not try to steer me too quickly intoany aggressive treatment regimes unnecessarily, instead offering tangible alternatives to try before we get to surgeries.
