Fantastic job replacing my left knee!

Dr. Creg Carpenter assisted by P.A. Rebecca Turner and Secretary Tammy did a fantastic job replacing my knee. I selected Dr. Carpenter after completing my own research and asking others about their experience. I found the entire experience from start to finish very impressive. I knew exactly what to expect before, during and after my operation. My wife and I were so pleased with Dr. Carpenter, Becky and Tammy that she asked them to do her upcoming hip surgery. I will be having my right knee replaced soon and have already met with them about it. We feel fortunate to have such a talented team available to us.

Too many lies

My problem is his dishonesty - his refusal to accept that as a result of the surgery there is a 1/2 inch discrepancy between the length of my legs. At the 4 month follow up his dismissed my pain - saying I had had a great recovery and Just needed to let the recovery continue. I went to my gp for a referral to a physical therapist. After 3 months, it wasn't until I started wearing a 12mm lift that the pain subsided. At the 12 month checkup his PT insisted that the difference was only 2mm - she wouldn't listen to anything else. I am less concerned with the difference in leg length that with the fact that I can't go there for help in dealing with it. The lying is just unprofessional.

Excellent care

I will second the comment that Dr. Carpenter is very matter of fact - no warm fuzzies there. When you talk to Dr. Carpenter make sure to keep it brief and have your questions ready - no small talk and it is all to the point. But it is important to note that Rebecca, his PA, makes up for that. For a fuller picture, I generally talk with her for more detailed understanding and more minor questions. A shout-out to Tammy, his secretary too, for being part of a great team that keeps things running smoothly. Disappointment with appointments which can be more than a month out - but they are in high demand, because they are good!

He's a great surgeon but it ends there. Very matter-of-fact, so if you should have some problems......it's not his problem.
