Patient Reviews

“Before meeting with Dr. Peter Ramsey, I really had no reason, besides my dogs, to wake up every day. I was living in constant, severe pain at the age of 51. I met with Dr. Peter Ramsey for the first time in late summer of 2012. I know I'm not alone in saying that he did not make me wait or  beat around the bush. He came in quickly, talked with me for a few minutes (already had my X-rays, bone scan, etc.), and explained my options to me. I knew he had already studied my file because he did not miss a beat, and he let me know exactly what he was going to do to give me a better quality of life. That right there, showed me that he cares about each and every one of his patients, even right down to your time, and that is very refreshing and reassuring.   Here I am now, April of 2013, and I'm better then ever. Dr. Peter Ramsey performed a total hip replacement, September  2012, and a total knee replacement, January of 2013. This man has given me back a reason to live. I am walking with  no cane, walker, or pain medication. In my eyes, Dr. Ramsey and Chris, who is also very caring, smart, and amazing, were  my angels. They really are a great team. They are amazing. From the time your appointments are given to you until the time you are released, everything runs so smoothly because of the amazing work not just of Dr. Ramsey, but the whole team. I would recommend Coastal Orthopedics to everyone and give them two thumbs up.   I would like to thank Dr. Ramsey, Chris, Tasha, all the nurses on the wing, and anyone who had a hand in giving me my life back......THANK YOU ALL! --Jacqueline W.    ”

“"I fell 25 years ago down a 30 ft air conditioning shaft and did damage to my whole spine at the age of 38. I have suffered with the pain and have been unable to work since. Meds didn't help, except to take the edge off the pain. Doctors would look at my MRIs and just tell me my back was a mess and there was nothing they could do. I basically became a hermit due to the pain and was unable to stand, sit, or walk for any length of time. My wife and I came to visit some friends in Conway this past winter because the cold made me so much worse in Michigan. He had XLIF surgery 10 months before and the change was amazing. He had no pain, except when he would overdo it out in his wood working shop on a project and that was rare. Oh, I didn't tell you he is 84 yrs old. Before the surgery, he wasn't able to go out there for more than a few minutes. Anyway, he kept telling us to try and go see Dr. Mills, so we finally did. We are now thanking God everyday for our friends pushing us to go see him. Dr. Mills preformed XLIF surgery on my lumbar spine and I was up walking the halls the next day and in less pain than I had been in in 25 years. You are a miracle man, Dr. Mills, and we are so thankful to you for giving me back my life. I still have 1, maybe 2, more surgeries for him to fix my neck and possibly an area in the TSpine, but I am so looking forward to them so that hopefully with Dr. Watson's help also, I can finally be off all pain meds. Between Dr. MIlls skill and procedure and Dr. Watson helping to control the rest of the pain, my wife feels she has a new husband. We can go for walks together, socialize with friends, go camping, and other things I have hurt too bad to do in years. It is amazing to have a life again.Thank you, Dr. Mills for giving me my life back. I can't wait to come back in October for my neck surgery. God bless you and your staff." - Don H.”

“I've had several foot surgeries over the last five years performed by Dr. Crosby. I will say they were very successful especially the last one in which complications developed. His suggestion with additional therapy did the trick.”
