I appreciate Dr. Sarah taking the time to listen to us and answer our questions. She didn't rush us during our appointment, helps us to feel confident in what she's telling us and that she takes our concerns into consideration. Thank you so much.

We like that Dr. Steward is very thorough. She thinks outside the box. She tries to make sure she does the least that she has to do to keep my daughter safe. Like, she doesn't do anything that...that is not required. So, she made sure that we didn't do a surgery where we had to cut her bone. She wanted to make sure that she was not done growing and her just ordering x-rays. It was, you know, just that extra step, showed that the bone wasn't done growing. So, stuff like that, we really appreciate. When Elizabeth came in for a follow up with her, her knee, she...Dr. Steward noticed that she had something going on with her finger, and we didn't even say anything. She...she brought it up and had been having pain for about a month. She ordered some tests and follows up with everything. So, she's very thorough, we like her, she does a great job. Thank you.

My daughter has gone to Ortho Clinic multiple times, often. The clinic is running 1-2 hours behind. I take my child out of school and this last appointment and I removed her from school over an hour early, and we were not seen to almost an hour and a half after our visit. So, this is super frustrating and extremely difficult to have confidence, in the provider because no one is taking the time to make sure she has enough time for her appointment. We were also frustrated, because there was a lack of communication from her office, and physical therapy department, and a sports metrics Department, often we had to reach out multiple times to ask, for x-rays asked, for a follow up appointments and even asked for the exercises that our daughter had to do at home. While her recovery is going, well, and I don't see her skills. The scheduling and the communications are definitely lackey. Thank you.
