She took a look at my x-rays and took a few additional ones and explained in detail what needed to be done. All the staff that I came into contact with were all friendly and professional. From check-in, physical therapy to check-out. I appreciate Tina, Dr. Vasiceks clinical assistant, who went above and beyond the call of duty helping get all the updated short term disability paperwork to my employers. Dr. Vasicek took great care of me!

With a very long history of orthopedic issues, I saw Dr. Harrod for a new issue with my right foot. I could tell he was more than interested in my past issues and really listened to what I had to say. Dr. Harrod provided a couple of options that did not include surgery. I would highly recommend Dr. Harrod and, if need be, will see him again should I continue to have issues with my foot.

Workers Compensation denied Dr. Donegan. They assigned me a surgeon at UK Orthopedics. This UK surgeon missed 2 major medical steps in my recovery. Dr. Donegan repaired my shoulder with quality recovery. I would highly recommend Dr. Donegan if you have shoulder issues. You will not regret it.

Dr. Donegan did a great job fixing my collarbone. It was broken in six places. He put in a plate and 12 screws. There were no problems during the surgery and my recovery was swift. He is a friendly person and easy to talk to. I would... Dr. Donegan did a great job fixing my collarbone. It was broken in six places. He put in a plate and 12 screws.
