I was able to get into the doctor the same day I called.What a relief. I injured my knee when I fell and wanted to avoid the emergency room! He fixed me up with a brace and it seems to feel better with the support.
I am happy to work with ortho Nuero on my orthopedic needs
Keep up the good work!
Everyone there has been concerned and understanding of my situation. I appreciate and feel fortunate that I met Dr. Gittens and that he performed my surgery. His assistant Sarah has ALWAYS tried to help me with my situation.
I was referred to Dr M Gittins by my spouse’s co-worker who gave him very hi praise and recommend him very highly… I had seen another Doctor over a year before for my knee and all he would tell me was I was to young (55) for any type knee surgery and that I had fluid on the knee and arthritis and he gave me a cortizone shot and said that should take care of it. Well that was just a band aid for awhile ,he never showed me x-rays or disscussed anything else…. The ache and pain has just gotten worse , after seeing Dr Gittins and the care they gave me, really give’s me hope of walking and feeling normal again. They explained all the x-rays to me and even gave me a copy of them all , explained all the options to me and how the procedure would go and listened to all questions I had and answered them fully. To say the least I was truly impressed and very glad I had went there and look forward to my next visit and getting back to a normal life.
Numerous people have shared with me that going to OrthoNeuro was the best choice for potential hip replacement surgery.
I am totally convinced that I made the right choice.
OrthoNeuro physicians have been my go-to team for 4 recent major surgeries at the New Albany location.
The entire OrthoNeuro staff is clearly focused on providing not only a positive experience but most importantly they focus on positive post-operative outcomes!
Dr. Gittins was compassionate about my emergency situation.
I appreciate the way he has treated me as a person AND a patient. I felt very comfortable with him at first meeting and knew he wanted to help me.
My experience was excellent, just as it was when I received a complete hip replacement by Dr. Mark Gittins back in 2005! This would/will be where I’ll come for future needs, if necessary. Thanks to all so much!
Always a very positive experience–both with Dr. appts. and Pt. appts.
Would definitely recommend OrthoNeuro to friends and family.
Dr. Gittins scoped both of my knees years ago, so I a great deal of confidence in his work and office.
My first experience with my first knee was better than I could ever imagined. My nurse ( Cathy I believe) was amazing as was the anesthesiologist. They were caring and reassuring.
I appreciate Dr. Mark Gittins. Rather than injecting me with steroids immediately he ordered an MRI for further diagnosis. Eventually I did require a steroid injection. Dr. Gittins gave the injection. It really helped and I am now in PT.
Always receive excellent care that is why I keep coming back.
Doc was wonderful. He was personal, caring, down to earth in explaining and couldn’t have done more . He was great.
Very pleasant experience with Dr. Gittins and all of his staff. Cam has been very helpful and great to work with me, very friendly lady!
