New Patient Visit

Not fond of waiting 30 minutes in small office with a number of staff without masks. Alaina was professional but not able to give be a specific diagnosis from one X-ray

Office Visit / Follow-up

I came into the office and I was the only patient in there. Great social distancing! I was then brought into the examining room where Alaina assessed my problem, then off to x-ray my two shoulders. Alaina then came back into the room and talked to me again concerning my x-rays. She gave me a slip for physical therapy and I made an appointment for 3 months from that date. I felt very satisfied with the visit .

Treatment / Procedure

Alaina answered many questions, provided information. Gave me options. Spent time going over things. Very pleasant, always is and spends time explaining things. [Single best thing is...] Time spent going over options.

This visit with Alaina was via telehealth. It was a great experience. Alaina reviewed my Right Shoulder MRI and gave me the results. Also, we talked about the Left Shoulder.

I was referred to your practice by Dr. Squire. I really like Alaina. She really listened to my concerns and explained my condition to me and was able to give me pain relief in my shoulder until I can see Dr. Kimbell. Alaina also took time and I did not feel rushed.

Everyone is always friendly and very helpful. I feel I am treated like a person not a number. [Single best thing is...] That the pain is resolved

Cortisone Injections

I arrived for my appointment about 20 minutes early. I was ready for a long wait to get to be seen. I was only there for a Cortizone shot in my shoulder. I did not wait more than five minutes before I was called into an examining room. I was in and out within 10 minutes. I find it very unusual not to have to wait to be seen by doctors in this area. My experience with Advanced Orthopedics has always been highly satisfactory. [Single best thing is...] The procedure was quick and almost painless.
