Our Patients Say It Best!

I Am So Grateful
Dr. Register and Dr. Leavitt coordinate so well together to provide a level of care that is remarkable. They really seem to care about their patients’ well-being and recovery. Their overall knowledge of complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) is unprecedented. They treat you with compassion, understanding, honesty and integrity. I am so grateful for having them as part of my care team.
Tamara, CRPS Treatment

I Have Complete Trust
I have had a wonderful experience with AOC, from therapy with David Pate and Peter, to a knee replacement with Dr. Manfredi. I can say nothing more than I have complete trust and thankfulness that I have been fortunate to be in their care. For me, one word: perfect.

Amazing Relief
I’ve had problems with carpal tunnel in my wrist for years. I finally went to see Dr. David Katz. I chose to have surgery on both hands two weeks apart. It’s been an amazing relief. The surgery was so fast and almost painless. The entire team at Athens Orthopedic Clinic was very professional and made the experience go so smoothly. I’m very pleased and am sleeping much better. I can’t praise Dr. Katz and the staff at Athens Orthopedic enough!
Shirley, Carpal Tunnel Surgery
Stellar orthopedic care
I have had three surgeries here in the past three years. (Two lower back and one neck surgery) Dr. Tally and Skye are awesome, and they have provided excellent care. The front office staff is welcoming and incredibly efficient. When I went to Athens Neurological for neck and back issues, I was accustomed to waiting over an hour at each visit. At AOC, I have never waited more than ten minutes in the waiting room. For most visits, I have x-rays, see the doc, and out the door in less than 30 minutes total! I would highly recommend AOC to anyone looking for stellar orthopedic care.
