Patient Reviews

“Dr. Payne gave me my life back. I couldn't use my shoulder or right arm to do anything. I was in great pain too. My kids were aggravated with me because it would always be an excuse for me not to do something... not to live my life. I can know say I am pain free and have complete use of my arm thanks to Dr. Payne! I am in awe of his surgical skills and his bedside manner. Thank you, Dr. Payne!!!”

“Dr. Kingston is simply the best. He is very thorough, explains things in a manner which I can I understand, and looks to make sure there is comfort on the part of the patient. I have seen other orthopedic doctors and non can stand to par with Dr. Kingston. He better never retire.”

“Dr. Maloof is super nice and has a wonderful bedside manner. I very much like that he wasn't too serious and was able to make light of my issue without demeaning me or making me feel bad about it. (Jokes help me cope and not be so stressed out) Humor in doctors is almost gone, I have found, and he really is a wonderful guy. Thank you for your help, Doc. If I need you again, I do hope you are still in the area. I'm grateful to not need your services, but I am more grateful you took such good care of me.”
