Dr. McClelland clearly and concisely explained the results of the MRI and what would need to be done to correct the problems. I followed his directions, had the surgery did the Physical Therapy and couldn't be happier with the results. I was amazed at how little pain I had after he performed the surgery. I was expecting much worse based on a lot of hearsay. His surgical skills are fantastic.
Dr Walter B McCelland Jr was an excellent surgery and bedside matters, before and after surgery. I would recommend high.
Dr. McClelland performed a CMC carpometacarpal joint arthroplasty on my left thumb. Prior to the surgery the thumb joint had become disfigured and was painful due to osteoarthritis; greatly reducing my range of use. The procedure also included harvesting my flexor tendon for reconstruction. 3 months from surgery I had complete use of my hand in all of its functions and am very pleased with the level of skill and care I received. My thumb healed nicely within the anticipated recovery estimates, check-ups and therapy were efficient, and the scars are minimal.
Although highly recommended, he failed to provide a diagnosis and discuss my hand injury in detail. He suggested "I continue doing what works best for me, icing, working hand out, etc.." No actual diagnosis was provided only treatment options; MRI or hand therapy. I was highly disappointed to have wasted my time on booking an appointment with him. I drove more than an hour to meet with him only to have five minutes of his time. Save your money! It's not worth spending your time and money on a physician who is unwilling to patiently listen and discuss your concerns. Bottom line, find another orthopedic physician.
Dr. McClelland is a fantastic surgeon, great sense of humor, bedside manner, I am totally pleased w/ his work and professionalism, and would highly recommend him for any else needing the surgery I had ( osteo-arthritis ) in my thumb/ wrist.
Dr. McClelland was very polite and compassionate. He immediately greeted my wife when he entered the room and subsequently met my acquaintance. He answered our questions diligently and properly diagnosed me. Most importantly, he made me feel assured and confident about my recovery in injury. Although I have my choosing of physical therapy locations, I will be returning to office where Dr. McClelland practices. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else.
Dr. Walter McClelland, Jr. is a true professional. An absolute pleasure to deal with and had total trust in his experience and knowledge of his profession. Exceptional bedside manner that's rare. In fact he is the total opposite - very friendly with a caring nature. Dr. McClelland performed a fairly complex procedure on my right hand and only 12 weeks post surgery the results are astonishing. I will highly recommend this fantastic surgeon to anyone that needs any hand, shoulder or elbow care. I am an avid cyclist and he really put me on a fast road to recovery with his incredible work. Thank you Dr. McClelland for treating me. I am very happy that your great practice partner - Dr. Allen Mcdonald recommended you perform my surgery.
My experience with Dr. McClelland was excellent. He replaced (?) my thumb joint to eliminate the arthritis that was so painful. The recovery was interesting but the outcome is outstanding!!! It was a total pleasure working the the Dr. and his staff!!
Dr. McClelland is and excellent surgeon in his I am very pleased with my surgeries I would refer him and his staff to all my friends
I have had three hand surgeries by Dr. McClelland and he is an excellent doctor. I highly recommend him. He is extremely smart, well-trained and personable. He listens and addresses all of my questions and concerns.
Dr. McClelland recently performed surgery on my fractured wrist. I was extremely satisfied with my care from the preoperative consultation, surgical experience, to postoperative care. He is very knowledgeable and competent. He is very professional but personable. Every office visit was very efficient, but I never felt that I was rushed. Dr. McClelland is a great listener and always took time to listen to my concerns. He leads an excellent staff of other healthcare professionals, as well. I would like to commend Eric, his assistant, and Missy, my Occupational Therapist. As a result of excellent care, my outcome is exactly as I had hoped. I would highly recommend Dr. McClelland.
dr. mcclelland had to remove a plate and ten screws that were put in from a previous surgery to repair a seriously damaged wrist (he did not perform that surgery)â¦.because one of the screws severed a tendon. he braided the severed tendon from one finger to a healthy tendon next to it. the scars are barely visible and my hand and wrist are totally functional.
DR. Mac is an excellent, professional and caring physician with a wonderful bedside manner! I would recommend him to anyone who needed ortho surgery.
Love P'tree Ortho and especially Dr. McClelland. He put me at east the first time I met him, and that never changed. Treated my pain, trusting me to know when surgery was indicated. Surgery was as easy as can be. Everyone was great as was the surgical center. I was so relaxed in could have fallen asleep before the anesthesia.
Dr. McClelland and his assistant Eric made me feel as though I was the only patient on their agenda each day. From first consultation, surgery and post-surgery visits, they always went out of their way to ensure my comfort. I would recommend this staff to anyone who is in need of "best in class" orthopaedic needs.
Peachtree Orthopedic Clinic is great. All are so friendly and helpful. Had surgery by Dr McClelland and very happy with results and the care i was given! Assistant Eric is great! Thanks to all of you!
Doctor Mc Clelland accurately diagnosed the condition in my thumb and performed surgery to correct. All went as predicted and now I have full use of my favored hand. He is very professional, a good listener and answered all of my questions. I would highly reccomend him if you have issues with your hands!
After reading the previous reviews, I concur wholeheartedly with my fellow patients. Aside from his excellent credentials, Dr. McClelland brings a warmth and sincere caring to every patient interaction. Never one to rush to a surgical solution, he provided me with several interim options. When I did decide to have the surgery, I was absolutely delighted with the treatment I received at Piedmont's Out-Patient Surgical Center. It was obvious the staff enjoyed working with Dr. McClelland - an important consideration when electing to have surgery. Additional kudos go to his assistant, Eric. From my first visit to my last follow-up, I was treated with warmth and a sincere interest in my well-being. I have already recommended Dr. McClelland to several individuals and will readily do so again in the future.
Dr McClelland did a wonderful job with my daughter Alexia's hand. I was very very pleased with his work. Anyone ask me about an exceptional doctor they can go to for orthopaedic surgery I will gladly recommend Dr McClelland. My daughter's fingers are now straight, there is hardly any scar, she is able to bend her fingers, and make a closed fist. I am so thankful Kaiser recommended him to me. Thank you Dr McClelland for the wonderful job that you did.
Dr. McClelland definitely lives up to his excellent credentials. He is both professional and kind, always willing to answer questions thoroughly and patiently. He receives my highest recommendation.
Dr McClelland was later referred to as the foremost authority on hand injuries by my physical therapist, he was able to diagnose my problem very accurately and was upfront with options. He felt physical therapy was the best way to go and now I'm back at work full duty better than ever. This Dr spent as much time with me as I had questions. Most visits I was in and out in less than 30 minutes and back on with my day. Thanks Dr McClelland
Extremely professional and an awesome surgeon. Only did surgery when necessary and follow-up was great. He is all about what is best for the patient! Very knowledgable! First time my right thumb hasn't hurt in 8 years!!!
I am very pleased with the services & results I've received with Dr. McClelland! I would definitely recommend his services to anyone!
Dr. McClelland performed surgery on my hand several months ago. I am very pleased and satisfied with my recovery. He's very knowledgeable, trustworthy and professional. He was patient and took time to listen to my concerns and then answered the questions that I had. Yes, I would definitely recommend him to my family and friends.
I had a great experience at Peachtree Orthopaedic Clinic with Dr.Walter B. McClelland.I tore my UCL ligament in my thumb in a bicycle wreck. I was told that the tear was severe.Dr.McClelland was very reassuring,that I 'd regain full use of my thumb. I always felt like I was in good hands.
I went to Dr. McClelland for shoulder pain. Instead of rushing into surgery, Dr. McClelland had MRIs done of my shoulder and my neck. He sent me to physical therapy and later gave me an injection for the torn bicep tendon. . He then sent me to another doctor for my neck. A physiatrist gave me an epidural in my neck, which immediately relieved pain from my shoulder to my thumb. Within three weeks it had relieved a great deal of the other pain in my shoulder and upper arm. Dr. McClelland was conservative in his approach and for now I do not have to have shoulder surgery. I would recommend anyone to work with this doctor.
Dr. McClelland was highly recommended to me by a longtime nurse at Piedmont Hospital. I found him to be very patient and caring in resolving the problem I had. He was very informative throughout my entire experience with him. He was great in giving me several options for the problem I had. I would recommend him highly.
Dr. Walter McClelland is highly professional and makes his patients feel that he truly cares about them, their pain, and their recovery from pain through surgery. He takes the time to explain exactly what he is attempting to do in surgery, as well as exactly what you can expect afterward. I totally felt I was in the best of care with him as my surgeon. His knowledge in his field, coupled with his effective bedside manner, made my surgical experience very calming. I highly recommend Dr. McClelland.
