"I recently had a Hip replacement and here I am at six weeks and my life is back to normal... I can recommend Dr Tenholder, and I do to everyone who will listen, he is most attentive. He listens to all questions and makes me feel important as a patient. His staff is exceptional, the treatment I received was first-class all the way. I was impressed with Fort Walton Beach Medical Center: I was only there three days but the treatment I received at a difficult time was the best. Thank you to Dr. Tenholder and your team, I really appreciate your kind care and consideration, but must add that thank goodness—I only have two hips!!" -- Anne M.
