Kicking patients to the curb

I had hip replacement surgery in 2010 with Dr. Branch. Now that I wanted to see him again to discuss an issue with my hip, I am told since I have not seen him in the last three years I am no longer permitted to make an appointment. Now a bit older and being on medicare, I am considered simply collateral damage. He will not accept medicare patients anyway. Very disappointing. I was fooled into thinking this doctor had an interest in his patients.

Had surgery rescheduled three times. In the interim, problem deteriorated to much more intensive and invasive surgery. Fired him and now seeing another surgeon. Im afraid my problem isnt wholly fixable now and may be permanently disabled.

I went to university Ortho from word of mouth and as a result, found out that many WORDS WERE left out! Seems that University Orthopaedics have quite the reputation... Besides losing a limb, I would say that my experience is right up there. After many visits and explanations, I was told that "well, we didn't have another billing option, so we (university Ortho) sent your medical info as that was our only option. This happened after numerous face to face inquiries. When they were told that their insurance if was incorrect. Dr. Branch called me and asked that I meet him, only to not show up. I would not recommend ANYONE to UNIVERSITY ORTHOPPAEDICS... PERIOD!

I don't recommend this practice in the least bit. They really do not listen to your symptoms and they make inaccurate diagnoses that cost a whole lot of down time and needless expense.

It was obvious to me from the moment I walked in that this office s a medicare sucking machine. The doctor had 3 other staff members stand around and stare at me (not student or interns) while he asked me questions that had nothing to do with my problem. They were personal, unrelated questions that had no business in the first interview. He did not examine me and did not ask me single question about my problem. Very condescending and patronizing. Then he just sent me to get blood work and ordered me back in two weeks....

Dr. Branch and Timothy are truly brilliant. Great with patients and their familes. Could not...repeat....could not have found a better surgeon in the world.

I was seen and operated on my pinnacle orthopedics and after 9 months of telling the dr that the knee injury was not repaired and being ignored I went to see Dr. Branch. One look at my original MRI that the dr at pinnacle had see I was diagnosised with ligament tears. Dr Brach repaired my ligaments and had closely followed my recovery. He is caring and thinks outside the box to help his patients recover.
Dr. Branch acted like he CARED about me as me...not just another patient

I went to Dr. Branch because I could not put weight on my right leg. He took tons of x-rays and injections that never once helped but never once recommended an MRI. I was never given anything to alleviate my pain or assist me in being mobile. I contacted my insurance company to get a second opinion. When I did go to another physician, I still could not move without pain, an MRI was ordered and was informed that I was bone on bone and needed knee replacement. Glad I fired him!

10 years ago I totally destroyed my knee. It was Dr. Branch who reconstructed it and not only enabled me to walk but to also live a very healthy and active lifestyle with a husband and three small kids. I've achieved, so far, a purple belt in Tae Kwon Do and am on week 6 of P90X! Thanks Doc!
