“Very good visit.”

“Over two consecutive summers, I managed to injure an elbow on a beach trip. Each time, I returned to Bristol, visited Dr. Hommel, and felt very confident that I was in good hands. He listened, ran tests, clearly explained what he believed the problem to be, and consulted with me about the best possible and most effective treatment. Each time, he was able to treat my injury effectively and get me quickly back to normal. We've joked in our family that perhaps I ought to visit Dr. Hommel before I go to the beach this summer. However, if this should be the third consecutive summer of a beach-induced elbow injury, I won't hesitate to call Dr. Hommel for treatment.”

“Dr. Whitman did both of my knee replacements. He is the BEST orthopedic doctor I have seen. My first knee was done four years ago and the other one two going on thee years ago and pain-free both knees. I love my doctor for helping me to overcome my knee issues. I highly recommend Dr. Whitman for any knee issues. He is mine doctor for any orthopedic problems. I will not see anyone else but him. Thank You, Dr. Whitman!!”

“From beginning to end I had a great experience with your office. I had a hip replacement in June by Dr. Brashear, and I am doing great. Recovery went smooth and I was back to work within two weeks. He advised me to work at the Wellness Center one month before the surgery, which I did, and during the recovery, I knew how important that was. I am walking great today - went on a Caribbean cruise last summer, going on an Alaskan cruise in July, and I can enjoy all the hikes that we will be taking while there. Dr. Brashear was recommended to me by a couple of people, and I am so glad that I took their advice.”

“Dr. Brashear did an excellent job replacing my right knee in June. The staff not only during my short hospital stay but also the wonderful therapy staff that helped me during my recovery are by far the best. The excellent care and attention to making sure my rehabilitation was progressing like it was supposed to and answering my questions and concerns far exceeded my expectations. I could not have received better care anywhere else. I was up and moving quicker than I thought I would be and was back to work after three weeks. That's unheard of after a total knee replacement. I would recommend Dr. Brashear to anybody and have recommended him to several. In closing, I want to say a huge, Thank you!!!”

“Amicable staff, always able to schedule an appointment within reason, did not have to wait very long to see the provider, still very satisfied with treatment. Injections helped with the knee pain.”
