“My grandson broke his leg and we chose this practice for his care. My mother-in-law and my father-in-law, at different times, each broke a leg, and we chose this practice for their care. I was never disappointed in the professionalism and care that Blue Ridge provided in taking care of my family members, so when I had a problem, it was a no-brainer for me to go to somebody that I fully trusted, so I chose Blue Ridge Bone and Joint. The doctor and therapists at BRBJ that first helped me did all that they could do, so then they referred me to Dr. Goebel, and he diagnosed the problem and recommended surgery to correct. Before my surgery, the pain in my shoulder and arm had been non-stop for 8 months and it was dragging me down. Since the day of surgery, I have had absolutely no pain and my activities are back to normal. I think that Dr. Goebel and the staff at BRBJ are world class and I am so glad that we have such a professional practice operating here where I live. Thank you, Dr. Goebel, and staff, for an excellent job.”

“I have had a comfortable experience in every way before, during, and after a hip replacement by Dr. Lilly. He has been thorough, informative, and pleasant and I would have no hesitation in using him again.”

“My experience with Dr. David and his team (both at the Arden office and Park Ridge Surgery Unit) has been an extraordinary patient/care provider collaboration from day one! First, wish to thank his two office surgical assistants Hallie and Leah for their pleasant professionalism~ smiles and upbeat manner even if I was the last patient of the day with 20 questions! Hallie's expedient replies to my many emails was also greatly appreciated. Regarding Dr. David, I always felt heard and respected, especially when I needed time to mentally and emotionally process my medical diagnosis. Dr. David was clear and direct about his medical opinion, yet patient with my decision to proceed. His surgical team at Park Ridge, who I was told have been together over 20 years, were incredible! From the moment you are taken back for surgery prep until you are released post surgery ~ the highest level of professional ethics, protocol, and procedures are demonstrated. And may I add with smiles, humor, and friendliness! It's been three months since my ACDF (anterior cervical dysectomy fusion). The quality of my life is returning exponentially and I am forever grateful to Dr. David and his team!”

“Dr. Goebel has gone out of his way to explain the procedure prior to surgery. After surgery he explained the length of recovery time that I should expect. The whole staff has been very professional and caring.”

“I went to Dr. Burnworth in March of last year with a swollen calf and ankle thinking it was caused by fluid on my knee. They x-rayed my knees and determined it wasn't my knees. They then sent me over to have an ultrasound, and it turned out I had a DVT blood clot. They saved my life by doing that.”

“Dr. Shea was seeing me for a stiff neck. Sent me for MRI and they found a place in my lung which turned out to be cancer. So glad he looked deeper than my neck.”

“Dr. Napoli and his staff were wonderful. He is an excellent surgeon and explained in detail what to expect during surgery and recovery. They are professional and extremely efficient. They were on or ahead of schedule during my appointments but I never felt rushed. As much as I appreciated all the wonderful care they gave me, I hope I don’t have to go back to see them. It is much easier being healthy with no broken bones!”

“I saw Dr. Burnworth for a follow-up appointment for my broken foot. However, in the period since my last appointment, I injured my hip. He was very patient about addressing with me an entirely new diagnosis. He explained what he suspected was going on, and answered all of my questions. I am very satisfied with the interaction and look forward to being on the mend!”
