I had surgery at this center yesterday and am very pleased with the staff and the beautiful facility. The nurses I had were wonderful and the anesthesiologist was outstanding. When hearing my options for anesthesia during the procedure, I was pretty scared by both general and the spinal injection. My anesthesiologist (I can’t recall his name unfortunately) came into talk to me at least 4 times about both options, explained both in great detail along with the pros and cons and made me feel at peace with my decision to have the spinal injection. Everyone was very patient with me while I took the time to think about what option I wanted and did not make me feel pressured to make a decision either way. My surgeon, Dr. James was also fantastic and explained everything to my husband that was done during the procedure. I hope to never need surgery again, but in the case that I do, it will only be at this facility! Thank you to all of the staff!
So I just had surgery at this center today and I was blown away. The facility was really nice. The nurses (all of them) and the anesthesiologist (both of them as well) were genuinely sweet and attentive. I would trust them anyone and everyone in my family including my kids. I was very impressed! So much so that even with my left wrist and hand being temporarily out of commission, I still felt the need to post this the day of my surgery. I didn’t think places like this still exist but hey they were phenomenal. God bless you all and have a wonderful holiday!!!
Response from the owner: Thank you so much for taking the time out of your day to share your experience with us! We are dedicated to providing the highest quality of patient care and respect and are honored to receive such great feedback!
I recently had knee surgery here with Dr. Callaway. My entire experience was excellent from check in until discharge. Allie was my nurse and was extremely personable and knowledgeable. All of the OR staff made me feel comfortable and at ease. Dr. Callaway is the best as well. I highly recommend this surgery center.
Response from the owner: We are so grateful to receive such a kind detailed review in regards to our practice. Thank you!
All the staff were very nice and accommodating while I had my surgery. I feel very taking care of. Cannot recommend Dr.Jernigans enough. He was approachable, answered any questions I had and even took time out of his day to call me himself to see how I was doing. Highly recommend him and his staff for any orthopedic needs.
