Dr. Royster replaced my hip in December 2013. I was 49 at the time and it should have been a breeze. The surgery was a complete botch and I have since had my glute min reattached at Emory. I know of other patients who have had issues as well. He would not return my phone calls, and at 4 months, when I game hobbling into his office with complaints of pain and a severe limp, he told me to do more PT.

Dr. Royster replaced both my knees at Piedmont Hospital, in 1997, with phenomenal results, I went back to running and everything I had always done. In 2007, due to the stress of my weight and the type work I was doing (Industrial Maintenance} the right implant broke and had to be replaced. Dr. Royster went way beyond his actual call of duty to see that I was taken care of. Later he also replaced both my shoulders at different times, again with phenomenal results. As you can tell, I don't want anyone else for an Orthopedist.

I saw Dr. Royster back in 1990 when he was in the USAF in San Antonio at Lackland AFB. He replaced my shoulder and he was the most awesome doc. He even brought me a piece of pie from his own dinner table as I was in the hospital over thanksgiving!! I've often thought of him.

Dr Roysrer did a good job replacing both of my knees and I'm playing golf again. The only bad things I can say is his office nurse is terrible and it can take months to see him.

If you become annoyed while waiting to see Dr. Royster, remember he is just as thorough with all his patiences as he is with you. He refuses to rush through appointments, he takes his time and genuinely cares about his patients. He is as skilled and brilliant as he is compassionate.

Well, waiting for Dr. Royster for an appointment is something I will do because of his knowledge. Waiting in the waiting room for over two hours seems rather absurd, but I have done it only because it was Dr. Royster. People don't seem to understand that that a good doctor is worth the wait.

I had a knee replaced by Dr Royster. He did a great job. I was playing tennis in three months and ran the Peachtree Road Race in eight months. I would highly recommend him.

Dr. Royster did my knee surgery several years ago and if I could go back in time and change one thing in my life, it would be to not have had that surgery. Dr. Royster never sent me to physical therapy and I feel that he knowledge was lacking in my experience. I even went to another orthopedic in Atlanta and he was shocked about my situation. Would not recommend at all.
