"My experiences with replacing both knees were excellent.  The staff from receptionist to Dr. Tenholder treated me with respect; polite and extremely professional. I share the positive experience with all my fellow co-workers as well as others that notice the scar and or limp. I would not hesitate to use Orthopedic Associates in the future, if needed." – Scotty L.

"Dr. Chipman is the best in pain management! He's extremely knowledgeable,caring, and does as much as medically possible to help keep me pain-free. His staff makes sure your taken care of in a very professional manner, and keeps me informed on what's needed and when. I've been seeing Dr. Chipman for a few years now and know that he's the Doctor to go to for help with pain. I've had serious pain due to my previous line of work and I thought I could just deal with it...almost 17 years was enough. I was referred to him and I now know what a good nights sleep is and to be able to do more than I have in several years. I recommend seeing Dr. Chipman to anyone that needs pain management.  My Thanks and gratitude to Dr. Chipman and Staff" – Jackie L.

"I was treated so well from the entire staff, actually there is no word to describe it. I was pretty nervous going in, but by the time my procedure started I was comfortable. You know, the word surgery can be intimidating and big or small, it can be overwhelming! But Dr Watts and the whole staff just make you feel at home and you know you will be alright!! Thank you for letting me use my right wrist painless again. Thank you Dr. Watts and your wonderful staff." – Susan F.

"In May 2015, Dr. Tenholder removed an 8" support blade and screws (installed in 1993) from my right knee in preparation for a full knee replacement, which occurred in October 2015. Both operations were successful. I found Dr. Tenholder, his PA Rick, and his assistant Malcolm to be pleasant, easy to talk with, and frankly honest in their assessments of my condition and responses to my questions. After the knee replacement in October 2015, I performed my physical therapy at the Orthopaedic Associates site in Destin and was extremely satisfied with the therapists there. I have also found the administrative staff at the Destin office to be pleasant and attentive. All and all, my experiences with Orthopaedic Associates have been outstanding and I would highly recommend the group to others." – Worth G.
