  • Dr. Wood listened to my concerns regarding my previous surgery. His entire team followed the plan that he established and kept me informed during the process. The pre-surgery plan included Dr. Wood, whose team was also very informative and caring. The positive outcome of the surgery was noticed immediately after recovery. I could stand up straight and lay flat on my back.

  • Dr. Land made me feel so comfortable.  He gave me confidence in explaining what we saw on the x-rays.  He exudes confidence and shows how smart he is!  I will certainly go back to see him if I have knee or hip problems.

  • Dr. Dean and the entire staff in the offices and at the surgery center were so kind, friendly and professional. I am 6 1/2 weeks post op. I am doing everything I want to and have no pain, only occasional stiffness or discomfort and that quickly resolves. I had my second post op appointment today and no more physical therapy for me! The surgery and recovery has far surpassed what I anticipated. I’d say I’m nearly 100% and feel I have no limitations! You really don’t realize how bad things were until you recover from replacement! I’m so thankful I had this done!  I know that my success is because Dr. Dean did a fantastic job with the total hip replacement and prepared me well with classes, FORCE, pre and post op physical therapy. I’m grateful to him and Dee Whitacre for always answering my questions, explaining so it’s easy to understand and preparing me to such a great extent. I have already, and will continue to highly recommend Dr. Dean and Total Joint Specialists!

  • Everything was exceptional-- from making the initial appointment to my follow up surgery appointment 6 weeks later. The education process was terrific; Dr Bradbury was awesome in that he gave me time and explained the hip procedure and post operative instructions very well. The day of surgery was extraordinary in that I went in and 4 hours later was walking out with a new hip. The Force PT staff were superior in both communications and advice. Overall I give it an 11 out of 10!!Highly recommend Dr Bradbury for both hip and knee surgeries. He is the best!!!!

  • Dr. Gottsman made me feel so comfortable with a decision to have a total knee arthroplasty. He is not only a very experienced and excellent surgeon, but an extremely easy person to work with. He listens to you, is very responsive to your questions and concerns, and apparently cares a lot about his patients. I am so far completely satisfied with him and his very good team.

  • Dr Guild is the most caring and professional Doctor anyone could hope to have. Technically he is in the top 1% and he is at the top of that 1%. He is excellent skill wise and he has a great bed side manner. A rare combination. His office and staff are efficient and friendly. Another rarity! I live downtown. Near the Capitol and I drive to Cummings to see Dr Guild. I recommend Dr Guild to everyone.

  • Had both my hips replaced by Dr. Kress over the last 20 years, still going strong . The entire team is outstanding from the administration to the evaluation (Eddie Bean) to the education/orientation. I could not give a stronger recommendation to the entire team, their practice and the ongoing experience.

  • Dr. DeCook made me feel comfortable from the moment I passed him in the hallway going to my room. He made me laugh and laughed back at my goofy remarks. He explained everything in a language I fully understood and answered my questions in an extremely polite and easy to understand way. Excellent experience.
