Dr Terry is the all-around best orthopedic surgeon. He genuinely cares for me as a patient and is very intuitive when it comes to diagnosing orthopedic issues. The recovery from one of his surgeries is excellent. I highly recommend Dr Terry.

Dr. Terry is very concerned with my care and I appreciate that. what I appreciate more is not having to repeat what's wrong 50 million times. His residents are aware of what my history and current complaint for my visit is with Terry before they enter the room and I appreciate that more then anything!

He is wonderful! I have no complaints! I am very thankful he is treating me and the time he gives me with my issues. He is always extremely caring, concerned and listens to what I have to say! His staff are the best as well!!! I have to say, most doctors with his credentials are usually full of themselves, but not Dr Terry!!!! He is so humble!

Everyone was patient, friendly, and did give explanations for what may be the case with my condition, and what options I may have. I'm sad there seems to be only be 2 options, but they communicated that the choice was mine, and MRIs could help me decide which option I select, and made that imaging reference available for me.

I have actually had the chance to refer to Dr. Terry in my line of work and now I can relay my experience. One of our physicians actually went to him after I told him my experience. I have had other doctors have patients call me for my opinion and I can say nothing bad. Wonderful facility and physician.
