One Star

Visiting Dr. Renfree was a huge mistake. He was rude, short with me, didn't answer any questions, and spent 30 seconds in the exam room before pushing me to do an MRI. Not once did he tell me what I could do to minimize the pain before the procedure; tell me to ice it, stay away from certain activities or offer any help whatsoever. His staff was also rude and treated me as just a number. I am very glad I received a second opinion from another orthopedic Dr. Not only did Renfree misdiagnose me, he almost cost me $2,000 in unnecessary medical bills.

Awesome doctor

Dr. Renfree is amazing. He takes care of my mom who has osteoporosis. He gives every detail of her care his full attention and is very thorough. You can tell he really cares about his patients personally. He loves to kid around with you and calls my mom his "troublemaker" lol...:) He will work tirelessly as long as it takes to resolve any issues you have. His assistant George Smith is awesome, too. :)

ulnar nerve surgery

Would never go back to him. The surgery was not successful and I have less use of my hand now, than I did before the surgery. Last time I was there he walked in the room, told me there was nothing else he could do, shook my hand and left. Did not address all the pain I am having in my hand, even though 2 1/2 fingers are numb. They were not numb before the surgery.

Excellent physician

This doctor cares about his patients, and it shows. I agree he can be hard to pin down for questions, but I just told him I had questions and he would listen and answer. He is a very down to earth physician.
