Terrible Doctor

Our 2 month old daughter has very mild hip dysplasia. The doctor walked in and and the first thing he said to us was that she needed the hip harness. He rushed through the appointment; he didn't explain why, he didn't show us the sonogram images and explain where the problem was or how bad, or whether there were other treatments. His staff didn't want to give us a copy of the sonogram because in their words, "There are no other pediatric ortho doctors in South Texas, so why do you need a copy of the sonogram?" My husband had to ask the doctor for a second sonogram to confirm the diagnosis. In my opinion the doctor should have suggested this instead of immediately suggesting a harness.

One Star

This doctor is horrible, he uses old procedures when there are newer, easier and overall outcome much better. He totally screwed our sons back up. We had to go to another doctor Dr. Geck that was wonderful we could actuallly see improvement the day after surgery. Because of this butcher Dr. Timperlake our son was put under the knife 3 times from this man. Dont use Dr. Timperlake because you will have many un-necessary surgeries.

2nd to NONE - AWESOME Doctor

I HIGHLY Recommend this doctor. He is caring and personable. He looks at you when he's speaking and took the time to answer ALL of our questions. He never made us feel like we needed to hurry. My son was very comfortable with him. He's just THE BEST!
