my experience was very nice. I was really scared but I didn't need to be. The anesthesia, he was excellent. He made me go to sleep at the right time and I really liked it. And Dr. Thompson, I can tell he did a good job on my hands. I think that's all I can say. But I would do it again and I would encourage anybody else to. Alright, thank you for calling Ortho. Alright, bye.

Hello, when I made the appointment, I was sent a computer sheet to fill out with my health history. All the questions that I covered on that, you already had the information for. And then it was also had a situation where there was an answer that I will not answer and it would not allow me to go any further. And I just don't do stuff like that. In fact, I went in without filling out your little questionnaire ahead of time. But that questionnaire needs to be first off, you had all the information. And then secondly, you need to be able to let people skip questions. That's all. Thanks. Bye.

Rhonda and Dr Thompson are absolutely wonderful! I was able to schedule and be seen within 2 days. Dr. Thompson explained everything, gave me treatment options and recommendations. I was able to get an injection in my elbow and I'm already feeling 100% better. Thank you Rhonda and Dr Thompson!
