First, the woman I spoke to when I made my appointment (I believe her name was Kristen), was incredibly friendly and nice. However, when I attended my appointment the two women at the front desk were incredibly RUDE. They were not kind, patient, or informative. They acted as if by being there I was inconveniencing them. I remained friendly with them, hoping their attitude would change, but it did not. I found myself wondering if I would return, solely based on their behavior. The PT I saw was very nice and knowledgeable. She was friendly and immediately was able to pinpoint my problem area and assist me. I have never written a review before, but I thought this was important for two reasons...1. I believe it is important for the PTs to know. I would hate to have spent years in school for people who work at the front desk to be negatively impacting my business. It takes nothing to, at very least, fake nice to customers. 2. I want other potential customers to know that the rude face of this business is not reflective on the PTs (or at least not in my experience).

Recently, Ole Reliable transported a family member. The staff was very helpful and professional. They went far beyond what was expected of them in seeing that our needs were met. If the need should arise again, I will certainly call them.

I love Dr. Bob McAlindon, He has replaced both knees, and fixed my right shoulder. He was the best when I broke my right femur. I would never use anyone else for my knees or shoulder surgery. His staff is very kind and efficient.
Tips & Advices
This depends on the center. Some may allow brief visits by family members. Patients should ask about visiting rules before inviting people to stop by.
No. Patients should arrange for someone to drive them home and stay with them for 24 hours following the procedure.
This depends on the procedure. Most centers ask that patients arrive one to two  hours before the procedure begins. Following the procedure, the patient will stay at the center until fully recovered from being sedated. This may take between one and three  hours. After that, if the patient isn't experiencing abnormal pain, he or she may leave.
