Staff was awesome! Dr. Davis was not. I was in a car accident after the injury which brought me to Dr. Davis. He was not interested in reading the MRI from my accident or treating the new injury. He made me go to another orthopedic office two days after this visit instead of dealing with it all while I was there. There are My Chart messages to confirm this.

Reviewed on Apr 26, 2019

Doctor was very unfriendly when he entered the room. He had a sour look on his face and acted as if he was not a "happy camper." That really bothered me since I've seen him before--same experience. He also acted very condesending relating to the whole health concern. He said to me, "well, this is a simple solution." However, I've been experiencing foot pain since my surgery in 2014 and I don't consider his comment appropriate.
