You are a very professional, kind and knowledgeable about your care. I felt I was treated like a person instead of a number! Thank you!

the provider did not address my symptoms, rather he told me that his brother died of heart conditions related to being overweight. I was then told I was simply overweight. He did not check range of motion, ask any questions other than why I was there. I was livid and would not recommend him.

I have nothing but high praise for the care I received. I would like to say if I hadn't taken the time to learn how to use my walker on the stairs before my surgery I could have had a major problem. My instruction was awful, as I was the one teaching him what to do. It seemed as though he'd never done this before. So my question to you is, what did the next patient do?

Was referred to Dr. Lovell regarding knee replacement. Walked me through the process and how to prepare for possible surgery in the future. Referred me to physical therapy to properly prepare leg and hip muscles.

Dr, Lovell is personable and put me at ease immediately. he and I discussed my prior total knee replacement, that was done by a different provider, and the need to have knee revision surgery. Dr. Lovell listened to all my concerns and gave me feedback to all my questions. He and I looked at the X-rays of my knee together and he explained things to me, and listened when I asked him questions. I have faith in his knowledge and skill to replace the loose prothesis in my tibia to relieve the constant pain that I now experience.

I was very disappointed that I filled out a paper listing St. Joseph's for my PT last time, they sent a prescription to them, and they called to set up my 1st appt. This time, they did not so I couldn't find a PT until 2 weeks after my surgery. Dr. Lovell is great though.

This was an orthopedic apt. There has been new pertinent info since my last apt. that affects my care. Since it take @ least 3 months to get into this doctor I think these new guidelines should be sent to the patient and/or the referring doctor. In the time it took to get in to see Dr. Lovell if I/we had this info ahead of time I/we could have made the medication weren't changes needed for surgery.

I absolutely love Dr. Lovell! I came to him from the Tr-Cities for a very complicated hip replacement. [...] I had the utmost confidence in Dr. Lovell's ability to do the surgery and felt reassured by his experience in dealing with complicated procedures. He loves what he does and it shows! he will answer any question that you have and won't let you go until you have asked every question you have. he is not a "hand on the doorknob" Doctor. Patient comes first with him. he is a very talented and caring surgeon. I have already recommended him to people inquiring about joint replacement surgery.
