I have recommended Dr. Graves and so has my physical therapist John Beasley.

10/25/2017

Dr Graves went over my surgery in excellent detail, helping me understand what to expect and the length of the recovery time. I found the explanation reassuring and it helped me develop realistic expectations concerning my progress.

10/24/2017

I absolutely trust Dr. Graves with any of my needs! He did my surgery and I hugged his neck at the last visit. Out of pain!! I recommend him highly!!! So glad I did the research to see which doctor I wanted to handle my problem. The doctor in Statesville did surgery in January 2017 and it was a failed surgery. 7 months later Dr. Graves did a shoulder replacement and took care of everything!!

10/16/2017

Dr. Graves is a very caring doctor. He made me feel at ease about my surgery. I had no question about him taking care of my needs.

10/11/2017

Dr Graves never rushes me he always listens to what I have to say.

10/10/2017

he had not read my complex medical history and then laughed when I told him I had an infected joint replacement. wouldn't recommend him to absolutely anyone.

9/20/2017

Nothing bad at all.. Very good experience..

9/14/2017

I had been dismissed by other surgeons prior to meeting with Dr. Graves and was told I had simply developed a pain syndrome. Dr. Graves took my pain very seriously and ended up finding a severe injury that had been missed by the other doctors. I appreciate that he is attuned to how important it is to me to be able to be active and is dedicated to helping be reach a full recovery and return to sports and hobbies as quickly as possible.
