Very professional, articulate, as well as friendly.
Both the dr and the nurse were awesome and treated me like a human being! Im in a lot of pain and they both took their time and worked with me. I will be back!
This was my first visit to Dr. Vance's office. I am very pleased with the quality of first class service that I received throughout the entire visit from him and his staff that I encountered.
Dr and entire staff was Professional, knowledgeable, as well as kind. Would highly recommend Dr Vance (and his staff).
It was a very pleasurable experience (except for the needle). Everyone was friendly and professional. The physician's assistant Colt and the doctor were exceptional
I felt that he was thorough and very knowledgeable of my issue. I was comfortable with him being that this was my first visit. I would highly recommend him to anyone that have problems with arthritis.
They rescheduled my appointment several times, and were very rude when rescheduling. Doctor did not address all my concerns, and I ended up having to go to the Emergency Room several days later because my condition worsened significantly.
Very busy office with long wait time
He acted very professional and at no time did he appear rushed.
Incredibly competent and compassionate Doctor who treated my shoulder pain with X-ray, cortisone and exercises. Caring, efficient office staff. Would definitely recommend Dr Vance to others.
I enjoyed the visit the staffing team and the Dr. was really nice
They made me wait more than an hr in waiting area and let who came after me in. There was a glitch in order of ppl to be called i guess. The Doctor suggested me surgery by looking at it just for a min.. Decided by looking at xray. I was hoping if surgery could have been avoided, but will go with it as suggested
I came on time and it was an extremely long wait. Thought the staff was nice, I'd appreciate them respecting my time.
I felt comfortable and confident regarding my issue.
Attending Doctor was good
Dr. Vance and staff were absolutely excellent. I feel very confident and comfortable.
Him and his assistance are very nice and extremely efficient!!
He was very nice and listened to me, I would highly recommend him.
He's very nice and I can tell he's very smart, but I was scheduled in between him having surgery so total time in the door and out was about 2.5 hours. Good thing I didnt have anything to do, but other than that my experience was great.
I actually need a prescription refill and they responded to me within a few hours and discussed the medication prior to the refill.
He was extremely nice and helpful in caring for me. Informed me of what the next procedure would be. Cleaned and redress a new sling on my leg. I really enjoyed him and would recommend him to my family and friends.
I was very pleased w/ Dr. Vance's expertise, the courteousness of his staff, and the overall efficiency of the office! Brandon
Doctor Vance was great but pack a lunch. Not sure if there was something last minute that came up but I waited almost 2 hours after my appointment time before I was even called back.
Despite all the other reviews. I went to find out on my own. I am glad I did. Every one was very polite and friendly. The assistants or nurses we very informative and made me feel like they care. The X-Ray Tech was friendly and kept me laughing while she did what she had to do.
His staff was very professional. The tray technician kept me laughing the entire time. To make the appointment and be see within 2 hours was fantastic. The doctor was pleasant and professional. I would recommend him.
Awesome. Dr. Vance was very well received by me. He was knowledgeable about my symptoms that I described to him and made several suggestions for my treatment. I thought he was very pleasant as well about my complaints. I look forward to meet with him again. The nurses and staff were all very polite as well as professional.
Very helpful in plan to relieve my knee pain so I can remain active
I thought that Dr. Vance was great, but his nursing staff was terrible no one was helpful and listened to what I had to say. The nurses were suppose to schedule a MRI immediately, after a few hours passed and I didn't hear from the imaging department i called the office three times to ask them to fax the request and they got back to me finally asking what cvs I wanted my prescription sent to. I recommend the doctor, but the nursing staff needs help.
Excellent, he explained my problem after X-Rays were done and provided treatment
I love him. He's very personable and knowledgeable. Great bedside manner.
He is a doctor that cares about his patients. I highly recommend Dr. Vance
For some reason i didnt get to actually see Dr Vance and ai only spoke with the nurses and other staff
I thought Dr. Vance was knowledgeable and understanding of my needs. My issues were with the nurse that greeted me and the nurse in training. The nurse that greeted me was in such a hurry that she didn't listen well and forgot a lot and the person she was training had no idea what to do... I would likely not recommend because of this.
EVERYONE in Dr. Vance's office was great! The day of my surgery, I felt like I was at a day spa. Lol. Everyone made me feel special. I definitely recommend Dr. Vance.
Dr Vance is an excellent professional and caring doctor. He listened very carefully to my concerns and genuinely address them. Taking care of my concerns was very much appreciated. Thank You!
I loved dr. vance. what I did not like is the wait time. and that the medical assistant and the PA . were very nice but not to attentive as I had to keep repeating the same answers to them. that was very annoying! also the first visit the medical assistant ask me to take off my short to get a xray and she gave me a little gown to cover the front but not the back and I sat out in the hall exposed and had to wait in a hall to be xrayed. first visit I was there 2 hours!!!! I di return only because of dr. vance was very nice!!!!!
Waited over an hour to see the doctor. Once he found nothing wrong on my X-ray, he didn't even stick around long enough for me to ask him general questions such as, can I exercise and is stretching okay? He was in and out in 1 minute and I left feeling like another number.
I found the front office staff to be fairly rude & inefficient however my experience with Dr. Vance and his medical assistant was very good
Speedy and thorough
My experience at Dr. Vance's office was beyond what I expected. I treated well and they listened to my issues.
he was great
I think that Dr. Vance was professional and courteous. I think that he listened and will do what is needed to help my shoulder get better.
Dr. Vance is very knowledgeable with his practice. I left feeling confident of his diagnosis and steps moving forward. I look forward to the repair in healing process that will be administered by Dr. Vance.
I thought Dr. Vance was excellent-would recommend him to anyone.
Dr. Vance diagnosed the problem immediatel and fixed the problem. Feels much better.
Great customer service at the front desk!! Dr. Vance was very in tune and listen to my medical needs. I will refer the doctor out to my friends that need orthopedic care..
Dr. Vance is the man. He has a sharp eye for diagnosis and good at layman explanations. His breadth of experience has afforded him a wealth of medical contacts which he happily puts to use for his patients.
All around my experience was far above excellent. I arrived 10min late, due to traffic, for a 10am appointment I walked in signed in and all of the staff was very professional and attentive to my needs as a new customer. I filled out my paperwork the the night before and was pleasantly surprised to see that all the correct info made it to their charting system I even forgot to sign one of the forms and the women at front desk even came out to the lobby and personally handed me the form to sign. About 20min later I was admitted to the back by a more than attractive and nice Russian nurse who promptly began to ask my Symptoms and condition in a very professional manor. I was then admitted to the X-ray room where I received outstanding customer service once again. I explained to the women operating the X-ray equipment about being late and she was more than sympathetic to me and was very kind and gentle with my injuries. The doctor was just as professional and nice as the rest of his staff. He took time with me to explain everything and personally check all the injuries and conditions I had come for. All in all I might of spent a total of 45min, at the longest, and was greeted with such hospitality and professionalism that I almost didn't realize I was a new customer at a unfamiliar doctors office. I give them a overall score of 11.9 out of 10 because the far exceeded any of my expectations or past experiences at any health related visits. I will make-sure that I can always have the availability to come back to them no matter who my health care provider is in the future because I have never experienced such a pleasant visit as the one I received at their facility. I would like to sincerely and personally thank each and everyone of the staff that helped me throughout my short out-patient visit at Dr. Tedman Vance Orthopedic. Excellence is a understatement when describing the healthcare service that the deliver to their patients!
takes up a lot time
Dr. Vance was extremely patient and thorough, answering all questions I had and I didn't feel rushed. I visited on what seemed like a slower day.
We waited a long time to see him. Had an 8am appt. Saw him after 10. I also keep getting automated calls saying I have an appt with him for April 15th.
I think he is a very good Dr.
I was very pleased with the treatment I received.
was friendly and very professional, kept explaining procedure and making sure I understood what was happening, yes would recommend him .
A relief I felt very comfortable
Very Positive experience. The entire office is efficient and they respond quickly to needs or concerns. Dr. Vance was fantastic, great bedside manner, he listens to you and advices you with complete information and he doesn't miss a beat. I had surgery with him this week and am recovering, He is giving me back my left leg! :)
Great bedside manner, informative and goes above and beyond. I am from NY and was in town for work, it was awesome to be seen immediately. As I have a complex medical history, Dr. Vance took the time to discuss his course of treatment with her. His staff is great and I highly recommend him.
Outstanding. Fast, efficient, great staff
It was brief but good
Dr. Tedman Vance is excellent! He is cool, confident and positive. He always takes my concerns seriously and helps me by treating me well. There is no doubt, He is my permanent doctor for all my orthopedic consultations. his medical assistant, nurse and all the staff including the administration staff are good. I strongly recommend Dr. Vance for all orthopedic consultations.
He s the best
There needs to be some more time for consultation with the doctor, but overall it was good.
I had an overall great experience with Dr. Vance! Although I did experience a long wait as a first time patient, I was not rushed once I got to the back. The ladies up front were very warm and kind, even providing my toddler with coloring books and markers. The x-ray technician was very friendly and the PA even sat with my daughter in the room while I got x-rayed. Both the medical assistant and Dr. Vance took the time to go through my complicated orthopedic history and took my concerns seriously. I am very appreciative to the entire staff for their patience with my toddler.
After some concerns with long wait times on phone last week with his staff the day of the appointment went smooth. I filled out check in paperwork online leaving mostly signatures left to be completed. Overall really good office visit!

Dr. Vance was very friendly and thorough. He and his staff were very helpful, and the weight wasn't that long!
He was very professional.
Initial visit.Got to the office at 0830 for a 0900 appt. Was seen by an office rep who took my medical history at 0850 but was left cooling my heels in the exam room for an hour before seeing Dr.Vance. Got a full set of x-rays and Dr Vance came back to the exam room and explained, in detail, my condition. Got follow up instructions and was out the door at 10:30
He really listens to my problem and wants to help get down to what's really wrong. Great approch to his work. The wait time could've been shorter, but that's what you get going during a typical lunch time
He was very personal, detailed and professional.
Very nice doc who was honest and made me feel better.
Dr Vance was very easy to talk to and seemed very concerned about my problem. He discussed an immediate fix and recommendations for long term. I was very impressed.
The wait time was so quick. The x ray technician got the xrays done super fast and had me checked in. Then Dr. Vance came. He was wonderful!!! He listened and answered my questions thoughtfully and then made recommendations for treatment. IT was a good visit.
I feel that there was not enough focus on what I think the problem is. Whlie he did try to help and guide me, I feel that the recommendation that he gave me were really generic and not based on on real evidence.
Dr. Vance was very pleasant and thorough. I felt very comfortable with his knowledge of how best to treat my pain and mobility issues. I would highly recommend him to anyone.
Doc Vance and crew were great!! Thank you
I could have used explanation of procedure as he was performing it
Excellent, very professional, Dr. Vance took the time to observe my elbow problem, then take the next steps to complete a solution.
So professional, very good!
Great doctor! Kept me out of the OR.
