Hip Reviews

“Dr. Harbin is always good at answering my questions and explaining things.”
– John F.
“Dr. Harbin was my surgeon for my total hip replacement in August of 2020. It was a life-changing experience and a perfect and quick recovery. I fell recently and was concerned I might have compromised my new hip. I was able to see Dr. Harbin immediately, and after x-rays and consultation, all is well. Dr. Harbin is an amazing surgeon. He is a kind and caring practitioner. I am so thankful that he was my surgeon, and I would highly recommend him to anyone needing surgery.”
– Carolyn W.
“Dr. Harbin did an excellent job as demonstrated so far. I can walk, hike and bike again which is so important to me. He answered as many questions as he could in the insurance-appointed time we had together. I do wish I had been warned in more detail about the pain I might experience after the surgery such as the nerve pain. My excellent physical therapist was able to clue me in on what was happening. Very pleased with the results of the surgery.”
– Phyllis M.

“I liked this office and the Doctor. The staff was very kind and professional. They got me on the same day with an appointment. Dr. Harbin looked at all of my information from previous scans. He also did a couple of his own to cover what he could not see in the earlier Scans. Dr. Harbin was kind and thorough; he seems to care about helping genuinely. In my case, he got stumped, but he Still did try to help ease any pain he could. One More test ahead to maybe see what's missing from another previous open MRI. And a recheck in 2 weeks. I will go back ~ he seems to be a Doctor I can trust. No long wait either! That's a huge plus.”
– Patricia K.
“I have been to several orthopedic doctors over the years. Dr. Harbin is the first one to thoroughly explain my issues and to present me with options. He took a lot of time patiently answering all my questions. This is something that is truly unique in today's medical establishment. Also, the office staff is superb. They are friendly and very professional. I would highly recommend Dr. Harbin and The Bone & Joint Center to anyone. It was a great experience.”

“I came in to make an appointment with Dr. Harbin, and the staff went to check his schedule. He had a few minutes right at the time I was there. He saw me, ordered x-rays, and set me up for my next procedure. This avoided, probably weeks of wait, and I am incredibly appreciative. Thank You.”
– Lawrence D.
“Dr. Harbin was very informative and professional with an excellent bedside manner. Easy to talk to and explained my issue with my knee to me in much more detail than my prior Orthopedic doctor did. The office staff was excellent, delightful and the office is very comfortable. My visit was excellent time-wise, he spent just the right amount of time needed to set up a plan for my knee, and I was then free to go about my day. I will be referring to him and this practice to others who may need care for Ortho concerns. Thank you.”
