Dr. King is just amazing. My 6'7" son ruptured his Achilles playing basketball. It is a rare injury for a kid. Dr. King was amazing in explaining the surgery and outlining a plan to get him back to D1 level basketball. His entire team and staff have been very supportive. He is quite simply the best.

Elbow surgery for an 8 year old

My son fell and shattered his elbow. He was transferred to Children's and Dr. King was called in. Dr. King can be arrogant, but when it comes to complicated elbow surgery to put the pieces back together, I want a confident Orthopedic Surgeon! Surgery and recovery went as Dr. King had explained. Highly recommended. My little guy was able to play baseball 4 months after his injury.

Dr. King was amazing! It has been four years since my spinal fusion and I cant thank him enough for the 10 very long hours he spent on the fusion. He and his staff are amazing and seeing the other comments with bad experiences baffle me. He is an amazing doctor and his nurse is also amazing. I owe all of the experiences I have had after surgery to Dr. King. Thank you Dr. :)

Mom

My children have been seeing Dr. King for 14 years for scoliosis and sports injuries. I could never say enough good things about Dr. King. He treats every patient with a smile and truly cares. He remembers their interests and hobbies without being reminded. My daughters were braced for scoliosis which is very difficult for a teenage girl but he also tended to those emotions as well and made them feel better. I would and do trust him with my childs life. There is no better doctor that you will find.

In the wrong field

I honestly feel that Dr. King is in the wrong field when it comes to relating to children. My daughter care was handled so poorly. When visiting Dr. King my daughter and I disgusted how we never saw him give a true smile let alone laugh. This doctor came off a very negative when it came down to caring for my child. He would be the last doctor that I would refer to anyone when it comes to pediatric care.
