Dr. Stover is an excellent doctor. He addressed all my concerns and questions before and after my surgery. I would, most definitely, recommend him to others.

Although I needed to wait to see Dr Stover, I was kept informed frequently. He always takes his time to review all questions/concerns from his patients, offers complete explanations and I would highly recommend him and his nurses to anyone I know in need of orthopedic surgical care.

Dr. Stover has always been honest with me through this 14 month process. Having had 2 emergency surgeries in a foreign country, Dr. Stover was always professional in discussing his concerns about the prior surgeries and what needed to occur before he would recommend a third surgery. He routinely took X-rays and took the time to explain them to me. Once he operated on me in June, I was truly on the road to recovery. Since that surgery I am walking independently with only a slight limp. This was my final visit to Dr. Stover and he truly gave me my life back.
