He completely explained my condition and my options so that I could make an informed decision. I chose a steroid shot for my hand and it worked miracles. He also told me that the length of the pain relief would differ from patient to patient and that would further help me to decide if I wanted to have surgery for the arthritis. I highly recommend Dr. Favetto and I will continue to see him if I have further issues.

Awesome. Dr Donegan and his staff are caring and make the patient the number one priority. He diagnosed me on my first visit.

Very efficient although conservative approach to my problem.

Dr. O'Neill did surgery on my finger. He did a wonderful job and all of his office staff and surgery center staff are awesome.

I had hip replacement surgery this morning and have been so pleased with Dr. Denehy in every way. He is excellent in all categories, and I will highly recommend him. Five stars!

These people I trust and the trust paid off. After initial office visit the schedule was set in motion. A date was set and due to a cancelation I was taken two weeks early. Today I am home with no regrets and a new respect for Dr. Christensen. I highly recommend him and St.Joe East for your surgeries.

The total knee replacement surgery I had on March 25th was very successful. Dr. Christensen is an excellent surgeon and I am very pleased with the outcome.

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.

Surgery Dr Harrod was great and explained everything in so much detail. I felt like he was truly concerned with my well being. I would definitely recommend.

I see Dr. Lockstadt for back problems/bulging and herniated disks and arthritis. I would give Dr. Lockstadt 5 of 5 stars.

I've been seeing Dr. Balthrop for a year now. He is a really good doctor. He listens to what a person says and asks. His answers are direct and to you, not at you. He gives all the information on any procedure that you are concerned... I've been seeing Dr. Balthrop for a year now. He is a really good doctor. He listens to what a person says and asks. His answers are direct and to you, not at you. He gives all the information on any procedure that you are concerned with, all the options and if you desire, say no. Be extremely hard to find a better doctor than Dr. John Balthrop.
