Ratings for Dr. Graham Pate
I had both knee replacement done, by Dr. Pate, in 2005 and 2006. Dr. Pate did an excellant surgery on me. After the two surgeries I have participated in water exercises and after 3 months I could go on hikes, even going up a mountain. Today, after 11 years I still feel great and only would go back to him or advise anyone the same. I should have written this many years ago, but I just found our about the Dr. rating links: firstname.lastname@example.org Sincerely Claus
I saw him last year for knee pain, he told me we diagnosed the cause and went ahead with surgery. Since then I have been in more pain than I was before, I can barely make it through the day now. When I finally got ahold of him and brought this to his attention he ignored me then fought with me. He was ignorant and disregarded everything I said and when I told him what a doctor I saw thought it was he freaked out and refused to order me an MRI. I refuse to see him for a second surgery, will be finding someone else.
After he operated on my knee it was far worse than before. When I went back to see him when it didn't heal he was very unprofessional. I got the operation since I was a long distance runner and he said I would be much better in 6 months. A year after I still could not run! When I told him that it hurts when I run his answer was "then don't run" In my opinion he is not a very good surgeon and based on my experience I would not recommend him.
Great surgeon ! A good communicator and a pleasure to deal with. Unfortunately his receptionist is as dumb as a post ! As a businessman I wonder why he would keep her. I see mine is not the only negative rating on her. Trying to be polite while asking her to do something gets you a condescending attitude. Wouldn't last a day in my office.
Just coming up on a year following a left hip replacement. What a stoke of luck having Dr Pate perform the surgery. Dr Pate is both friendly and professional, making the whole experience remarkably stress free, except for the awful C&W music he plays in the OR (LOL). Well, nobody's perfect. But if you need a good orthopedic surgeon, he's your man.
