Five Stars

I can't imagine going to any other Orthopedic Dr. Dr. Gore and his staff are friendly and efficient. Dr, Gore has a great bedside manor and he is funny and personable. My husband I felt like we had known him for years. The atmosphere in his office is very comfortable and welcoming.

Bad result

Dr Gore recommended knee surgery for my knee. After my knee replacement, my knee is unstable. I went to another doctor and have been diagnosed with malrotation of my knee components. Not only am I dissatisfied with Dr. Gore's skill, I feel he didn't tell me the truth as to why my result was bad.

Botched knee

Dr. Gore botched up my partial knee replacement and it had to be corrected by another doctor not associated with his group. He kept ordering me to get 2nd opinions with partners in his group who kept saying everything was fine even though my knee was hurting me badly.
