What Are People Saying About Dr. Stevens?

April Walkley

Dr Stevens is fantastic! He explained to our daughter her condition in very easy to understand terms and what she could do to make it better. He empowered her to stretch and encouraged her athletics. He took the time to teach her and the follow up visit was a success. Thank you!

Big Louie

Dr. Steves is a skilled surgeon and a caring human being. He rebuilt a toe joint using a new technology (Cartiva Implant) and three months after surgery I am delighted with the results. His supporting staff and nurses were knowledgeable, honest and empathetic.

Kris Klingeman

Dr Stevens and his staff are exceptional. I had surgery on both feet by Dr Stevens and the procedures went above expectations. It is obvious he is passionate about what he does. The entire facility was professional and treats their patients with care and kindness,

Rhonda

TCO is a great practice. All the staff is friendly and efficient--from the front desk to the back offices, to the surgery center. They have it DOWN! Dr. Stevens takes time to really listen and consider your questions and concerns. . He explains options, the rational and the ultimate plan of care, which was carried out to the letter. I always felt I could contact Dr. Stevens or his staff with any issues and phone calls were returned timely and effectively. Highly recommend.

Bobbi T

I would highly recommend Dr. Stevens. I completely ruptured my right achilles back in April 2016 & Dr. Stevens completed my surgery. As a healthcare professional myself, I appreciated how thorough Dr. Stevens & his awesome staff have been from start to finish. They have all been incredibly supportive as I continue this long slow recovery. I feel grateful to have them on my team!

Jackie Ridge

Wasn't crazy about the coldness of the receptionists and reception area, but I do not have words to express my gratitude to Dr. Stevens and his nurses. He is extremely professional, yet makes you feel/know that he cares about you as a patient. I suffered for far too long prior to finally having to admit that I had major issues with my Achilles. I had reconstructive surgery Oct 2016 and now, nine months later, am practically free from pain. Being 66, things just don't heal like they used to!

Ed Burnet

From start to finish Dr Stevens and his staff were very professional, friendly, always extremely helpful in all aspects during my broken leg procedures. I highly recommend him and his staff.

Scott Faringer

I broke my toe in an athletic injury and was able to get into Dr. Stevens quickly without having to use an emergency room. He was able to reset my toe in the office to avoid surgery and taught me to re-tape the toe while it healed. I can’t say enough about him and his quality clinic staff!

Jarrod Miller

Dr. Stevens and his team provided excellent care before and after surgery on my ankle! I highly recommend him!
