I see 3 different Drs in this office, Dr. Seales, and everyone are extremely nice and knowledgeable I will continue to use them until I get all my problems fixed.

Dr. Macey is very personable. He took the time to explain what I can expect on my road to full recovery, and didn't end our appointment until he was sure that I understood all the do's and don'ts.

Our experience With Dr. Tenholder was amazing. The staff was courteous and knowledgeable in all departments. We (my daughter and I) had an all around wonderful experience at Orthopaedic Associates! Highly recommend it to anyone.

As usual, my appointment with Dr. Chipman went very well. He always listens to you and goes over the best treatment options for you. Takes his time to make sure that you fully understand. As a patient, this is very important. Excellent.
