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.

lower back surgery

They all get an A+

I was a bit nervous about the whole knee replacement thing, but I am glad that I chose AOC. All of the staff have been awesome. Thanks Dr. Mandfredi for giving me a new knee and improved quality of life. Thanks to David and the Nurses for constant care and encouragement. They have the best Physical Therapy group I believe I have ever been involved with. They very professional and tough. Thanks a lot to Megan Stines for putting up with my complaining, but making me do the work, no matter how much I tried to get out of it. They all get an A+. I would recommend them all to anyone who is looking for an Orthopedic clinic to go to.

Knee replacement

A sincere thank you

My husband and I were more than pleased with the expertise and care that was given to me during my ACL surgery. We want to extend a sincere thank you to Dr. Register and all of the AOC staff members!

ACL surgery

I highly recommend them!

Dr Register performed arthroscopic surgery on my knee. He was attentive and fixed me up. His PA, nurse and PT were always helpful. The anesthesiologist was awesome as was the clinical staff. Thank you! I highly recommend them!

Arthroscopic surgery

Very impressed

I had a disc replacement between C5-C6 with Dr Price. I was very impressed with him as a doctor and his surgical skills. I would recommend Dr Price to anyone looking to have any type of orthopedic treatment.

Disc replacement

Genuinely cares about each patient

Dr. Dorris has treated my knee injuries for over 10 years. We are at the point where it’s time for knee replacement and I know I could not be in better hands. His compassion and professionalism is outstanding. He genuinely cares about each patient and that’s a rare trait in most physicians these days. I would highly recommend him if you’re looking for a well qualified and compassionate physician. His support staff is outstanding as well.

Knee replacement

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 both hands done 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!!

Carpal tunnel surgery

Excellent for 36 years!

I was seen promptly, X-rays were done and in short order I found out why I had been in so much pain for three weeks. My experiences with AOC have been excellent for 36 years! This is a great medical organization!


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 patient's wellbeing and recovery. Their overall knowledge of CRPS is unprecedented. They treat you will compassion, understanding, honesty, and integrity. I am so grateful for having them as part of my care team.

CRPS treatment


I have the BEST team of Doctors and nurses here. Mrs. Sandy always knows everything that is going on with you, and she makes sure you know and understand everything. Dr. Karl is patient and thorough at every visit. He will answer all questions with a detailed explanation. Dr. Shuler is a great surgeon. I highly recommend Athens Orthopedic. THEY ARE AMAZING!


Could not have had better care

My husband and I have been using AOC for 14 years and have always had a good experience. Dr Florence is amazing, could not have had better care, his whole team is great!


The whole staff was wonderful

I must say this is an excellent place if you need Orthopedic care. I saw Dr Brandon and he was very thorough and caring. The whole staff was wonderful. I feel comfortable that Dr Brandon and his team will get me where I need to be or at least the best that I can be thank you.


I felt heard

I felt heard, and my fears were confidently quieted, by my doctor, Dr. Price. I was also pleasantly surprised in their timely manner in which they get you in and out. I was very impressed.

back surgery

I have complete trust

I have had 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.

Knee replacement

Top notch

Dr Shuler is top notch and his office personnel and the surgery ward personnel are spectacularly there all the best. Keep up the great work.

hand surgery

These folks are doing a great job

My 10 year old broke her finger playing soccer on Saturday. We went to the ER and then to the hand specialist on Tuesday. He scheduled surgery for the next day. Of course I was very nervous but the staff were so helpful and kind. The nurse, Stephanie, spoke to my daughter directly and explained every little thing she was doing. For example, "I'm going to give you a shot to numb your hand before I start your IV and it will sting and hurt a little bit.." All of the nurses were polite, kind, and kept us updated without delay. The anesthesiologist explained everything in detail and was very patient with my questions. Dr. Shuler (hand specialist) was super patient with me as well. I ran a doctor's office for over 15 years and these folks are doing a great job. One more thing: I called about two hours after we got home with a question and assumed I would get an answering machine. Instead, the nurse answered the phone and reassured me that all was well. Most offices have you go to an answering machine so it was very nice to get an actual person. This was actually our second time being treated here at AOC and while I hope to not have to come back, I certainly would without hesitation.
