“Dr. Thaxter is incredible. My shoulder has been hurting for a while, and he was quickly able to asses it and rule out some major tears. He sent me for an MRI to make sure nothing more serious was causing the pain and had a plan for what to do after depending on the result. I'm thrilled with the care.”

“Dr. Thaxter listened to my concerns regarding the problem I have been having with my knees. I was pleased to learn that my knee problems are not serious. And if I need treatments he directed me on how to go about getting such treatment. I’m very pleased with this facility. I had shoulder surgery previously by Dr. Thaxter and I never had problems again. I would recommend Dr. Thaxter to my friends and family.”

“I went to Dr. Thaxter for a 2nd opinion on my left hip! His office staff was terrific as was he! He answered all my questions and concerns and made me feel comfortable with the decision for a total hip replacement! The surgery was a complete success and no more pain in the hip after months of suffering! Dr. Thaxter and his staff have followed me before, during, and after the surgery! I had such a positive experience that I’m ready to go forward with concerns for my right hip! I would recommend Dr. Thaxter for any problems you are experiencing! He’s the BEST!”

“Dr. Thaxter was straight-forward throughout the whole process concerning my surgery options for my rotator cuff issues and repairs and recovery afterward, and also gave me extra time with physical therapy due to my slow-healing matters.
