Extremely professional while being friendly and personable. The Raleigh Orthopaedic Surgery Center provides seamless attention to detail--as a surgery patient, I valued having a pre-op nurse (Debbie) whose knowledge and expertise is truly outstanding. From Dr. Watters to the anesthesiology team, to the recovery nurses, they all kept me apprised of where I was at in the process. Another outstanding experience--thank you!

Always professional and always courteous! If I have to do it again, I would definitely choose Raleigh Ortho.
Very comfortable and professional. My first operation at 64 and was completely relaxed with all staff and Doctors. Will be getting other shoulder done when I heal.

I would HIGHLY recommend Raleigh Ortho to any/everyone, would even recommend to my 90 year grandmother. Every dealing with RO has been exceptional, very professional and very polite. My surgeon, Mr. Barker, was very professional, attentive, knowledgeable, and friendly (I could go on and on) and I feel very blessed to have him as my surgeon. Him and his team are very professional and make you feel at ease, at all times. I feel very blessed to have had him as my doctor/surgeon.

Overall great experience with diagnosing my Achilles’ tendon rupture to the surgery. Everyone is extremely professional, friendly, and educated. My surgeon Dr. Michael Casale, did a great job with informing me about the surgery, recovery expectations, and pain management. Would recommend this team to anyone with an Achilles Tendon tear/rupture.

From pre op to post op (carpal tunnel surgery) everything was explained thoroughly. We knew exactly what to expect and everything went according to plan. In our experience, all the professionals at Duke Health are amazing, and the best sign of a great place to work, they are really cheerful.

Best surgery experience I've had! Staff was wonderful. Jose took great care in preparing me for my operation. Highly recommend Dr. Tuttle as he is not only kind and considerate of your needs, he's highly skilled as a surgeon. I had the same operation on my right hand 3 years ago with different doctor and practice. My recovery for that was horrible with months of pain. This time, I'm 5 days post recovery and have had very little discomfort. Even went for a run. Thank you to the team and especially Dr. Tuttle!!
