This provider was extremely rude didn't make eye contact with me, did not let me finish answering any questions, was in a hurry to leave the room


Hubbard's the best!


to the point


Dr. Hubbard was very knowledgeable and carefully explained everything, as did the resident with him the day of our visit.


I have always been happy with my results from the clinic visits.


Excellent care! A+.




definitely would recommend Dr. Hubbard and this clinic to other people


John was was short of nothing but excellent - I am most please with the outcome of my operation. He is very talented and quite gifted.


Dr Hubbard went beyond the call of duty. He was very helpful, knowledgeable and professional. Most importantly the treatment worked.


Had great experience


All good , I am a professional athlete , just needed straight forward info and dates on surgery , once again , I don't care about so called bedside manner , just need a great Dr , I am a coach and still train a lot etc . The DR and staff are excellent ,very nice, maybe subconsciously it's why I returned . Ha , did i just contradict myself lol


Dr. Hubbard's surgery on my left shoulder produced excellent results. Pain was minimal, physical therapy outstanding and the results 5 months post-op indicate my shoulder will be much better than it ever was. Thank you Dr. Hubbard!


Best I have ever been too.


Dr. Hubbard performed rotator-cuff repair surgery in August 2016. I was concerned I would experience sever pain. He said I may not. Following surgery I had very little pain. I took Hydrocodone for only 2 days and Tylenol for an additional 2 days. Now I am undergoing Physical Therapy and gaining strength every day. I am convinced the quality of my recovery is a direct result of Dr. Hubbard's surgical skills. Thank you Dr. Hubbard!




*Dr. Hubbard and his nurse, *Jessica, are amazing - I received follow up calls. I went to *Dr. Hubbard for a second opinion. He correctly diagnosed the extent of my injuries that the first surgeon missed. He also sent me for follow up to a vascular surgeon.


Dr. Hubbard was very thorough and understanding. Took into account my activities, triathlons, and we discussed short term and long term options.


*Dr. Hubbard is very professional and knowledgeable and explained things to me and helped me feel at ease about my upcoming surgery. Highly recommend him.


Dr. Hubbard is one of the best Orthopaedics in the business! I have total confidence in him!


*Dr. Hubbard has done everything right to gain my respect and confidence in him and his team.\


I visited this doctor as a second opinion. Another surgeon had recommended clavicle surgery. The first surgeon did not look beyond the xray on the clavicle and did no physical examination. Dr. Hubbard suspected and found two cracked ribs and a torn rotator cuff. He does not recommend surgery for the clavicle, which seems to be healing well. We will follow up with an MRI and possible surgery for the rotator cuff.


Again, I felt as if my concerns were discounted when I was told that he could see no reason for my pain even after discussing the cysts on my MRI.


Dr Hubbard used a lot of technical terms while examining my knee and talking with the P.A. It would be helpful if he then put it in laymen's terms to me. I understand the need for technical terms when discussing with another physician but the patient needs to hear basic words they can understand. I.e. we think you have damaged the meniscus, etc.


Can't find a bad thing about anything concerning staff or facility.


very concerned about my care
