I always have a good experience here the staff is always so friendly. My husband had surgery from Dr Rhodes a few years ago and he did a great job. I hurt my elbow last year and he helped me with that and now my knee is bothering me and he has a great plan to help with that . They always explain things that you can understand. I also recommended my friend and she had shoulder surgery here and also did great! I highly recommend this group to everyone I know that needs any orthopedic services.

Visits are short and highly choreographed. I for one could use a little more time to fully understand what the doctor wants me to do, and to fully explain my issues and concerns. There is not a lot of hands-on evaluation of my movement and pain. Still, I do think he knows what he is doing and I'm less concerned about the pain after seeing the doctor.
