Great Doc..!

Joseph Locker has been our 'family' orthopedic doc for several years. I had a total hip (Anterior), my husband a meniscus repair and carpal tunnel surgery. There were no surprises and we are completely pain free. Highly recommended...

Very little care for patients

After driving 4 hours round trip and waiting 90 minutes I was told how overbooked he was and to re-schedule. 2 of my 3 visits I only saw a P.A. He never checked on me or any other patient post-surgery at the hospital. When I had complications he gave me no referral or follow-up and actually said :"What do you want me to do about it?" He is about production surgery, not about patient care.

Knee Replacement

I had a full knee replacement a little more than two years ago by Dr. Locker. I will only say this. I wish I had never had it done!

Mr.

I found Dr. Locker to be exceptional in all categories. He was never hurried and I always felt he wanted to do whatever was in my best interest. He answered all my questions with layman language. I would not hesitate recommending him for any surgery within his scope of expertise.
