“Dr. Helpenstell and I go back a way and except for the fact that he keeps cutting me open, I really like the guy; hey, I'm told scar tissue builds character. The good doctor has always treated me with the utmost respect including dealing with my petty phobia about cortisone. He is an absolute professional and always up-to-date on my medical history and concerns. His assistant is also very professional and together they make an excellent team which has taken very good care of my health concerns.”

“I actually saw Jared and Dr. Byrd. I had a wonderful experience, I had surgery done on both my hands, the first was amazing and healed fast, the second healed a little slower but they recommended hand therapy and that worked wonders. I would recommend anyone to come to see the hand specialist in this clinic.”
– Penny T.
“Today was supposed to be my pre-op for Surgery on Monday. Rebecca was truly understanding and informative when I told her about my granddaughter dying on Monday night. I asked her if my stress and grief at this point could affect the surgery, and she said it could affect the outcome, yes. She was very understanding and suggested that in three weeks we do this again. I felt so humbled to be treated in such a tender way; her understanding and compassion were above and beyond anything she was supposed to do. So I say a huge "thank you" to Rebecca for her compassionate response today.”

“One of the best surgeons I have ever come across. Incredible bed side manner. Very courteous, honest, and very funny. I see his team as being lead by a leader in this industry. I am currently 12 days post op with 125 degrees ROM. Can't say enough about him or his team.”
– Brian V.
“All my questions were answered and even more important they all took time to fully explain the procedures I was going to have. I am very pleased with the care that I received.”
– Chuck P.
“Dr. Moore was more than accommodating in providing me a reference to a pain specialist. Both knowing that I need a hip replacement. Dr. Moore was able to provide me the pain relief I needed in order to put off any surgery and allow me to maintain my work schedule until such a time I could afford to take the time off to take care of my hip.”
– Gordon S.
“Dr. Moore is not only a great doctor and surgeon but he is a super nice guy. Easy to work with, good communication, and top of the line person.”
– Michael B.
“I appreciated the provider being down to earth and easy to talk to. He was genuinely interested in my recovery.”

“Dr. Femiano was very knowledgeable, interested, specific, and helpful. He understood the sports and weightlifting issues I asked him about. He carefully reviewed my X-Rays with me and discussed the options. He gave me a cortisone injection that worked very well for me.”
