this office on a whole is great!!!! i can't say enough about how wonderful Dr. King is...He is so kind to me and my 93 yr. old mother. He is the best. I wish all our physicians were just like him.

Reviewed on Oct 1, 2018

Dr. King is knowledgeable, compassionate and made a concerted effort to help me even when I mentioned my medical issue not related to my visit with him. In my opinion, he went out of his way to refer me to another physician for a consult out of his realm of practice by messaging the physician directly regarding needing the consult as soon as possible along with referring me to the spine clinic at the main campus. I am very grateful for his expertise and his personal concern for my well-being by getting me to the correct physician for further consult and advice for the best treatment for me.

Dr King is always willing to spend the appropriate amount of time with me to discuss any issues or concerns that I have. He does an excellent job at communicating to me. The only concern is that it normally takes a long time to get an appointment with him. I was lucky this past week because he had a cancellation. This is probably a testament to his popularity.

The shining star by far was Dr. King! Very friendly, kind and caring. It was very obvious to me that he took the time to look over my chart before he came into the exam room. Finally (after 5 years of chronic pain) I found a provider who may finally be able to help me and not placate me. I can now see a light at the end of the tunnel and look forward to the treatment options Dr. King will provide!

This was a follow up for an ankle injury, and Dr. King was excellent. Took care of the foot, then noticed some excessive swelling and ordered an ultrasound. The ultrasound found a blood clot which I'm currently under treatment for. Dr. King called me on my cell that evening to check on me and see if I had any questions about it. That's more than any doctor has done for me in a very long time.

Reviewed on Mar 30, 2018

Dr. King is a phenomenal physician. prior to my initial assessment he spent more time than I expected getting to know the details of my health condition and coordinating with my referring physician. This was easily one of the best experiences I've had with a provider to date.

I am still complaining about my coccyx pain... the injection for hip tendon did relieve my coccyx area for the first 5 days then pain crept back. my hips are improving every time Dr. King gave me the injections. I think he is putting coccyx pain on hold until we are done with the tendons. Naturally, I want everything treated so I can go back to my normal life. I have been living on bed 24/7 for almost 5 years after got injured. Dr. King has an amazing patience with me, I appreciate his help.
