Verified Patient Reviews
Always nice to visit, very personalble, good bedside manner
Dr. Layfield and the other doctors, nurses, and staff at this office are very thorough and as someone who's a little accident-prone, I have visited this office several times over the past decade. I came in with a problem, got X-rays, and was seen rather quickly. Dr. L explained the issue in terms I could understand and recommended the least invasive treatment to start. I would recommend him to anyone who has orthopedic issues or concerns.
Dr. Layfield showed me what was going on in my knees on my x-rays. He then referred me to another orthopedic surgeon in the practice that handles knee replacements in case I decide on that surgery in the future.
Very professional, direct and to the point!! Great Doctor would absolutely recommend.
Dr. Layfield listened carefully to the problems I'd been having with my shoulder. He looked at x-rays and then did an exam himself. He was patient with the questions I asked and let me be a part of the decision on how best to move forward. The x-ray technician, nurse and front-desk folks were all very friendly, efficient and professional. Only my second visit but both have been 5 star visits all the way!
Great doc. Communicates well.

Friendly and Professional staff. The student radiology technician was courteous and friendly as well. The doctor was very well educated, and he articulated the underlying cause of my condition.
The doctor is great, but the wait time is terrible.
I love the facility, however I was do disappointed that I could not be seen because that office do not take out of state worker's comp cases. Could you please forward workers comp doctors that will take NY State cases, while I reside in VA getting help from my family. Your site is great and a wonderful help for my need.
It was very quick considering I was a first time patient and waited over an hour. However, Dr. Layfield was very pleasant.
Dr. Layfield was a breath of fresh air relative to other Orthopedic doctors in the area. Very thorough, took time to explain what was going on and didn't rush the appt.
As a new patient, I thought it went very well. Dr. Layfield showed me the x-rays he had taken (which I always appreciate seeing) and did a thorough exam of my knee/knee cap.
The office is well kept up with. The waiting room is bigger then some ER's. Has physical therapy in the same location, which looks very organized and well ran. Office visit was fast compared to most doctor office visits. The staff was professional. The doctor was very knowledgeable and well-mannered. My only complaints: if you book on zocdoc, don't expect to keep your initial online appt. because their systems don't match up, however they will notify you. In addition, there call hold times are extremely long.
Excellent doctor; communicated condition very clearly to myself as well as my 11 yrs old son.
Took the time to explain his diagnosis. Unlike other Orthopaedic's I've seen, didn't skew towards surgery. Would highly recommend seeing him if you have a nagging sports injury.
Hes an amazing doctor. I felt so comfortable and felt like I finally found someone who cared about me and was really willing to help
Dr Layfield is great. He does a full assessment and listens attentively. Only draw back is the office staff, hard to talk with and they don't provide any information. Booked on ZocDoc and they said they don't use the site at all. They did accommodate me with no problem but didn't seem to care what my request was when scheduling. Needed to ask the DPT a question, got X-rays and an office visit with the Dr instead...
He is excellent.... My only issue has been the time spent on hold to make appointments.... Now that's no longer an issue!
Dr. Layfield was very precautionary in really trying to understand what was wrong with my knee and wasn't simply trying to rush my diagnosis. He was my second opinion doctor and found something that my first doctor didn't take the time to look for. He is very professional and well informed!
Very knowledgible, caring and honest.
Very thorough analysis of my situation followed by a referral for further testing.
Absolutely wonderful. This doc is the best.
