I would absolutely recommend Chris Phillips to anyone ! I like the way he said my knee didn't look too bad and that we can treat my problem conservatively. He just seemed to feel confident that the shot he put in my knee could really help me. I like when the health care provider shows confidence because then I feel more confident that they can help me.

Absolutely horrible this is the second time he has wasted my time. I ended up not even getting the injection after it was ready on the table. I would like him removed from my care team. I would expect this out of a free clinic. He is rude and does not listen

I was in a great deal of pain and the person scheduling was able to get me in to see Dr. Chris. He was knowledgeable, concerned and always answered my endless messages.

Reviewed on Aug 9, 2023

The over-arching feeling I had from Dr. Phillips is that he couldn't wait to get out of the room. He provided me with zero insight into choosing between the options available to me, and provided almost no information -- despite my asking for it over and over -- about details in re: the options. Perhaps he was trying not to influence my decision, but information upon which to base my decision was exactly why I was there. I will not see him again.

Reviewed on Aug 7, 2023

Dr. Phillips was a very caring and personable doctor. He didn't rush through our appointment and answered all my questions completely. He smiled, was friendly, and put me totally at ease. I would gladly recommend him to anyone.
