Dr. Harrod is friendly, very knowledgable, professionable and easy to understand. My experience was very positive. It is refreshing coming away from an appointment feeling that your doctor really cares and wants to help.

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.

He’s knowledgeable and very pleasant.

Dr. Balthrop and his staff were simply outstanding! From my first visit to the time of my OUTPATIENT hip replacement yesterday everything was as professional as a well oiled machine, but also personalized. My assigned nurse called this morning to check on me. Almost no pain at all. It has been a day and a half and my main concern is not overdoing my movement, cause I feel like I could generally do anything I wanted to do. Thanks to Dr. Balthrop and his first rate staff!

My first surgery was not successful, not because of her. Against advice of colleagues and friends, I trusted her and went back for a second surgery. I am happy I did.

Excellent We are both around 60 years of age and while we have been healthy (knock wood) most of our lives, we have still seen a fair amount of doctors and their staff. This is by far the friendliest and most competent office we have ever been in. You are greeted with a smile by a wonderful staff, not a vacant stare or rude comment anywhere. Each person we interacted with knew their job and answered our questions quickly. Dr. Huff is so impressive, looks you in the eye and doesn’t make you feel like he is in a hurry to see his next patient. He is very knowledgeable and friendly. Jeff has been putting off knee replacement surgery for a lot of years and when we left Dr. Huff’s office he told me that after meeting with Dr. Huff, he felt good about having the surgery and wasn’t nearly as nervous as he was before going in.

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.

My knee was good as new for a period of five years. Ligaments Are still great, knee is now bone on bone. I willhave Dr D’Angelo do kneereplacement. I have nothing but 5 stars to say about D’Angelo and staff.I also have spinal stinosis, bulging disc, collapsed disc, pinched nerves. Dr Lockstadt and staff have taken greatcare of my back. Dr Lockstadt has gone to greatlengths to keep me mobile and working. I do not know what Iwould do without their expertise. I had many people warn me not to see them. I do not need a best friend. Ineed someone to fix my bone deterioration. These guy’s have taken care of me with great concern and insight.They do not want to do surgery first thing. Some of the brightest and innovative doctors in Lexington. Thank you Bluegrass Orthopaedics.
