Reviews

"You can’t find a more caring and educated doctor than Dr. Hurt. He replaced my knee several years ago and I have no complications. Now I’m seeing him for shoulder issues. I wouldn’t trust anyone else to operate on me!" 

Kenna B

"Dr. Hurt is a great Surgeon. I had anterior labrum repair surgery several months ago. He's very professional, extremely efficient with time, and he cares."

John R

"My teenage son has been seen by Dr. Hurt for several injuries. Most recently, shoulder surgery. Dr. Hurt explained everything in a manner that both my son and I were able to understand. During surgery he found more extensive damage than anticipated and went ahead and did the necessary repair. Exceptional bedside manner and office staff interaction!"

Vicki W

"Dr Hurt and his staff did a wonderful job of getting me in quickly when my left knee starting hurting and became swollen and hurt to put weight on it.  They took xrays and determined an injection would help my pain and discomfort. This has helped and I’m doing much better! Thanks. To Dr Hurt and all of his wonderful STAFF!"

"Dr Hurt was great. I loved his honesty about my injury and What could and could not be done. I would highly recommend him."  

Sylvia R

"This man was amazing throughout my fiance's initial visit to surgery. Genuinely concerned, helpful and professional. We were very impressed and can't say enough good things about him and his team! Thank you guys for taking care my fiance through this ripped bicep." 

Tava H

"Dr Hurt provided me excellent care for a TKR. I knew exactly what to expect and the surgery went off exactly as planned. I am just beginning recovery and believe it will go as smooth as well. On a side note, Dr Hurt offered to pray with me prior to surgery. Whether or not you are religious, this tells you a lot about how Dr Hurt cares about your needs. I so appreciate his patient care, his knowledge and the results he was able to achieve.
