Patient Testimonials

Thanks to my care at OTOR, I can enjoy doing things I couldn’t do before my last surgery. I’m well on my way with physical therapy and I’m getting around much better. I love Dr Mackay and Jasmine they are the best team around! I will never have a doctor other than Dr Mackay. Thank you all for the caring support your staff provides, all the way down the hall to physical therapy.

Dr. Michael MacKay did a total left hip replacement on me on December 28th, 2016 an he was AWESOME. He explained everything to me and did a great job. Thanks to him I was able to walk normal and relieve a lot of pain. I would and will recommend him to everybody. HE'S THAT GOOD. I haven't always been at ease around a lot of dr.s because I didn't trust or have confidence in them, so it looks like I will be having another hip replacement in April of this year my right hip. Dr. Micheal MacKay will be my surgeon again which its awesome. Cant go wrong with this dr. He's the best. Thank you Dr. MacKay for helping me with my health problems.

Thanks to my care at OTOR, I can... be as active as I was before! Dr. Benson at OrthoTennessee performed my rotator cuff surgery on Dec 15th. A week and a half later I got my stitches out and ditched the sling then I started physical therapy. I went five times and finished up today. I have to say my surgeon is amazing! I will be 50 this year and I plan to make it great! Dr. Benson is a rock star and I recommend him to everyone!

Thanks to my care at OTOR, I can now walk freely without pain. I have not had such a comfort level with my knee for just over ten years. I am able to do things that I have not be able to do for over ten years.

As a German and an engineer I am very spoiled to first class outcomes. To be amazed with a service is a difficult thing to accomplish with me because I have a very high standard, when it comes to being provided a service, however, with OTOR I was truly impressed. I was told by my colleagues was that I would be in a large amount of pain, I would have a long recover time and would have to spent a considerable amount of time in therapy. However, I was able to walk freely without any devices or help after 4 days, my pain level was very small, I had only 3 therapy sessions and the repaired joint is almost identical to the healthy joint now. I am very thankful for the first class job done by Dr. MacKay.
