Patient Interaction

Wait Time

I met Dr. Worthen for the first time this week after being frustrated with other physicians who had exhausted their skills in my orthopedic needs. Dr. Worthen was very patient with me and very understanding to my questions and concerns. He made me feel like I wasn't so easy to give up on & that there was hope and direction for fixing issues with my knee injury that other doctors couldn't find a solution to. I am definitely looking forward to working with him more and continuing my care with him
