Patient Stories & Testimonials

“My doctors at AO are always attentive.”

My doctors at AO are always attentive.  They are extremely knowledgeable in their fields.  They are up to date on alternative treatments and always willing to listen to my thoughts and to take my feelings into consideration.  I also love the support staff.  Every time I see my AO doctors, I get hugs and cheers from the front desk ladies. What I like most about AO is that it is unique and patient oriented.  You take my whole self into account, then listen to me, cheer me on, and make me well again.

“It made me feel like I was important.”

I like the fact that I could fill out the forms ahead of time and bring them with me.  That saved me from having to sit in the doctor’s office filling them out.  My appointment time was kept and I was in and out of the office in a timely manner.  The doctor and his staff actually took the time to sit with me and talk to me about what was going on.  Then they took time to explain how the body works and what we need to do to make it work correctly, so that I can fix my injury.  It was wonderful to have that kind of face time with the doctor, it made me feel like I was important and not just another paying customer!

“My quality of life has vastly improved.”

I have been thoroughly satisfied with your group and level of care I have received from your organization.  It’s nice to know people care and believe you as a patient and a person suffering with chronic pain.  My quality of life has vastly improved since I have come to this group, and my pain has been managed.  It was horrible prior to finding you all; I cried every day and was so frustrated with every other physician I had seen prior to coming to you all that acted like I was making my pain up or it was not that severe and I shouldn’t hurt like I was complaining I was.  I had lost all faith in the medical profession and given my life over to a lower quality of existence and depression.  I feel so much better and am functioning at such a higher level of productivity and I thank Dr. Decker for that and for listening.  I would highly recommend your group to anyone I meet suffering from an injury or surgical scar.
