Dr. Phillips is extremely professional, thorough and takes his time addressing all of my concerns. i am so very blessed to have him as my ortho knee shot and ortho knee prescription doctor. This last time I asked for a different prescription which he immediately called in to my pharmacy. There was trouble getting it filled (insurance said wouldn't pay since it was over $1,500) and Dr. Phillips was right on top of it with the pharmacy and I got what I needed. Now there's a dic who is proficient and truly cares about his patient's welfare! Clev Clinic is very fortunate to have him as part of their team! And Dr. Phillips has never waivered in practicing his brand of patient care. Never once since I've been seeing him fir over 3 years! Hang on to that doctor! He represents Clev Clinic extremely well!! I am truly grateful and appreciative he is MY ortho doctor. I can't say enough accolades about him! Seriously!!!

christopher Phillips was able to diagnose and provide answers to an issue that 2 other doctors were not. I truly appreciate him for being knowledgeable and taking the time to investigate my issue. After a year and a half of pain, I am finally on track to a resolution!!!

I was in excruciating pain. My tendonitis had flared up and I was like a duck in the water, totally helpless. My normal orthopedist wasn't available but I was able to see Mr. Phillips that very day. He was very accommodating and helpful. He could see my history and understood what needed to happen. Now I am back to work with little to no pain. I was very grateful to be seen by him!

He diagnosed me with a sprained knee, & told me to ice & elevate it. I realized after I left I didn't have any information about limitations, e.g., appropriate amounts of exercise moving through the healing process. I ended up searching online for that type of information.
