Have you ever had a doctor thank you?

Several years ago when my carpal tunnel got bad enough to require surgery, I saw Dr. Bennafield. He did all the routine preps and scheduled my surgery. As he was leaving the exam room, he turned around and thanked me for choosing him to be my doctor and for trusting him to be my surgeon.

Since then he's seen me for my shoulder and has been so skilled at hitting the right spot with steroid shots.

I'd also like to commend Dr. McLeod, whose specialty is knees. he also is an expert at steroid shots and also avoids surgery unless that's the last resort. When I need surgery on my knee, I'll know I'm in good hands with him and all the experts at Ozark Orthopaedics.

Walking and Enjoying Life

We had just moved here in June of 2005. In July I feel down the staircase and shattered my RT. ankle. I had no doctors as of yet. I am thankful every day for the brilliant surgery Dr. Benafield performed. I received 10 screws and a metal plate. I remember him asking me before surgery what I expected from the operation. I told him I would still love to be able to walk and dance and play with my grandkids. To this day I think of him when ever I am walking and enjoying life. I thank you very much Dr. Benafield you are truly my hero. 🙂
