Compassionate, caring, and extremely competent, Dr. Harrod always gets to the heart of the matter quickly and in clear language-but doesn't jump to quick conclusions or unnecessary solutions.

So I was dreading today so bad. I Literally never felt a thing . It was no pain at all. He is very professional and caring yet very down to earth. I've been to his office twice and will continue as needed.

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. Lockstadt was very good to me before my surgery. After it was over he spoke with my family and was thrilled with my prognosis. I would recommend him highly for any back issues.

Dorothy Painter

Very talented, kind, compassionate & easy doctor to talk to. He operated on my shoulder & gave me back my quality of life . I would definitely recommend him.
