Broke wrist

I went to the ER with a broke wrist, one of the nurses was rude. What really upset me was it happened on a sat they wanted me to wait till thurs to come back to see if surgery would be needed they canceled 2 hrs before my appt cause of an emergency surgery.. I understand that but then they wanted me to wait till Monday to see me back! I told the nurse my hand had too much swelling and my thumb was a little purple she said to go to my family doc or go back to the ER again. I went to Arkansas speciality ortho they took my cast off instantly cause it was too tight done more x-Rays and found it wasn't even set right!!! I have used this hospital when it was st Joseph's but I will never use this one again I don't recommend Dr. Dodd for anything if he couldn't set it right I can't imagine what surgery could have been!

Frustrated with Lack of Ability

Dr. Dodd was NOT a good doctor. My daughter has been in back pain for some time. He did not use any of the diagnostic reports or images, even though there is evidence of problems on both the MRI and the X-ray. He was unable to come up with a diagnosis. He was rude to both me and my daughter. He accused my daughter of faking the pain. Fortunantly we found Dr. Katheryn McCarthy in Little Rock who easly pieced the evidence together to determine my daughter's diagnosis and has us on the road towards healing. If you have a back problem, I would recommend driving to Little Rock for treatment. I would not recommend Dr. Dodd to anyone.

Zella Elder patient

I think you did a wonderful job with my shoulder. I also think you have a very good bedside manner. I appreciate your expertise and your pleasant personality. The shoulder is doing good, almost 7 weeks after surgery. Thank you.
