“Dr. Hedrick was very kind and took his time with me and gave me several options in what was best for my foot surgery. He was also very informative about the post-op recovery time after my surgery. I would recommend him for any foot surgery I might need in the future. The office staff was accommodating and greeted me when I came through the door, and I did not have to wait long at all before seeing the Doctor. They were all very professional and efficient and put me at ease. Thank you so much, Dr. Hedrick and your entire staff.”

“Dr. Hedrick is always so helpful in quick having the staff return my call regarding my husband's condition. He and his PA thinks problems through by considering what the patient needs and the next means to treat the patient. My husband and I are grateful for Dr. Hedrick his P.A. and all his staff. They are always so pleasant and kind.”

“Dr. Hedrick took the time to explain options for my ankle, which I fractured in three places. He didn’t do my original surgery but did remove my hardware. Unfortunately, this helped for a while but arthritis set in. My choice was to have a steroid injection, which is assisting praise God! In the future, I will probably be getting an ankle replacement, and I wholeheartedly trust Dr. Hedrick to perform this surgery. The only thing I would suggest is to reiterate to the patient that temporary pain is common post injection when the numbness wears off. Either I didn’t listen well or wasn’t told this. I can’t say. So I place no blame. I’m just so very thankful to be able to stand for my 8hr nurse shifts with minimal discomfort!”

“My experience with Dr. Hedrick was great. There was a problem with scheduling which this is the second time this has happened to me. Dr. Hedrick treated me very well, professional and sympathetic and rescheduled my procedure for the next week. The front office has always been very friendly, but the check-in process seems exceptionally long.”

“After reading reviews online, I made an appointment with Dr. Mark Hedrick, for a surgical consult for bilateral bunions. Within a month I had undergone surgery on both feet; bilateral bunion repair, straightening of the 2nd toe bilaterally and hammertoe repair which required pinning two toes on each foot. I was able to walk on the sides of my feet and my heels for about six weeks during the healing process. The sutures came out in 2 weeks, and the pins came out in 4 weeks, and slight swelling persisted for a couple of months. I am six months post-op, and my feet look and feel normal now, thankfully! I'm happy with my results! It was worth every minute of discomfort that I endured, and I am so glad I had both feet done at the same time, however; I do have a very supportive husband. Dr. Hedrick and his PA, Jamie, work great together and both have a great wealth of knowledge and skill. They are always warm and friendly, as are other staff members, and I would gladly recommend all of my friends and family to them and return myself for any future orthopedic needs.”

“Dr. Hedrick came highly recommended by former patients. I understand why. He was very patient and answered all my questions about my up coming surgery. He listened to my concerns and was very reassuring. He never sugar coated the procedure . It would be remiss if I did not mention his staff. The office is extremely well run from the front desk, X-ray, to his assistants. In all the appointments and follow ups rarely did I have to wait an unreasonable time.”

“Very Good!! When I decided to get help for my crossover and hammer toes, my first thought was to go to BRBJ. I had been to BRBJ on two previous occasions for foot issues and had also worked with them through my employer before my retirement. I knew they had a very good reputation. Dr. Hedrick was very straight forward and positive on the first visit as to how he would correct my toes. I have had no problems with the aftercare. They have several offices to be seen at.”

“Living on a steep ridge my garden tractor popped out of gear and lost its brakes. By the time I got to the bottom with significant speed the machine took flight across my neighbor's driveway, At ~10 ft altitude I shoved off the machine. I landed on the blacktop driveway with the machine soon landing on my left leg and foot before crashing into a tree some feet away. Dr Hedrick read the Xrays and CT scans taken at Harris Regional where the foot was stitched up. Finding no broken bones but recognizing the severe laceration on my ankle as a "farm injury" he prescribed the appropriate anti bacterial and antibiotic with great follow by him and Rachel over the next few weeks. The injury is now mostly healed and the pain is minimal.”
