Waited over two hours to be seen, with an appointment, only to be made to feel that I had wasted HIS time. I will NOT go back!

We waited to be seen for almost two hours after our appointment time... once we were seen Dr Wade acted as if we were wasting... the proceeded to tell us how poor the x rays were and that there was no noticeable fracture... wear a brace for two weeks and should be fine... total time seen by the dr was maybe five minutes... upon review by other doctors the obvious fracture was confirmed... sorry for wasting your time Dr wade with a simple non money making non reconstructive fracture ..

My mother-in-law had a stroke and was in terrible pain with no cartilage left in both of her shoulders.She had injections in them and it really helped...a few months later, as her health was declining, we took her back in and he told her he wouldn't give her any more shots, because he didn't think it helped her enough.He even told her,"I don't make anything off of you anyhow"...those were his exact words.A couple months later we got the medicaid bill for over $650.00 dollars.I don't understand how he could of been so cruel to my mother...she was an angel, and from Texas, too.His hair was messed up and disheveled, looked like he had a hard night.I was so disgusted.

Dr Wade is amazing. He sometimes has a abrupt manner than some people don't like, but he knows his stuff and just isn't long-winded about it. Which is a good thing considering how behind he always is. I hate the appointment system, but I just acknowledge that I might have to wait to get the best ortho doc in town. He did my shoulder a year ago, and I couldn't be happier with the entire process. I just went today for a new shoulder issue, and he was super friendly and got me back out the door with *hopefully* no more pain.

I had an appointment scheduled for 10:30, they called the day before and asked me to come in at 10 instead. I got there at 10 and it was 11 before I was finally seen by the PA since Dr. Wade is out of town. She reviewed my MRI report from the radiologist and said they found nothing. When I asked if she had looked at the films herself, she got very defensive and said that it was not necessary because radiologists know what to look for better than doctors do, and they hardly miss anything. Then, I asked her about a finding in the report and she adamantly stated that there was none. A few minutes later she found it in the report exactly where I said it was. Overall I felt like they do not care about the quality of patient care. Instead of just sending me out for more tests, I think that the doctor should have reviewed my MRI just in case something was missed. I will definitely be getting a second opinion.

I have had 3 surgeries done by Dr. Wade, knee and 2 shoulder, in addition having other orthopedic problems treated that didn't require surgery. With each surgery I made a quick and full recovery. He often runs behind schedule, but is thorough and answers all questions and addresses concerns. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Wade saved my bacon. I badly fractured my wrist out in the bush and the ER people at Denali Hospital had sent me off with some meds and a splint to go home and have the wrist surgically repaired at home in California. Dr. Wade saw the x-rays and, after saying "we can't send that guy home like that", had the ER call me to come back in. Dr. Wade did such a good job of setting the broken wrist no surgery was needed when I got home to see my doc. Nice work!

His personality does turn some people off, but he is THE BEST surgeon in town. He has worked on 6 members of my family and myself, and we trust him implicitly. He put my shattered ankle back together so well, I never used pain meds and had a recovery time half of what was predicted. If the other commenter thinks he's full of himself, I say he has every right to be, but mostly he is direct and blunt. I'm glad he's in town.
