Dr. Stubbs is a great doctor and the go to person for hip problems. He did a great job with my surgery and I am thankful for that; however, I do feel that appointments with Stubbs are rushed. He doesn't explain things in terms that a non-medical professional could understand, and he doesn't give much time for questions.


Dr Stubbs is easy to talk to, easy to understand and is very thorough. When I asked for more information he gave it readily and responded enthusiastically to my questions.


*Dr. Stubbs' exam was very thorough.


Loved *Dr. Stubbs - he's thorough, friendly & spends time w/his patients.


*Dr. Stubbs needs patient information packets about labrum tears, hip dysplasia and infor. regarding different treatment options.


Made me feel like I wasted his time. Another doctor sent me to him.


Dr. Stubbs is amazing!


Dr. Stubbs is an amazing doctor, and he really knows what he is doing. If I knew anyone with hip problems, I would recommend him. My only complaint is that appointments with him feel incredibly rushed. I feel that he speeds through the information and then I leave the office with unanswered questions. Overall though, I am very happy to have Dr. Stubbs as my provider.




Stubbs is great in the OR. He is not as great with patients, especially when the surgery doesn't go well. I am having complications with recovery and feel like I am left on my own to figure it out. He has his mind made up as to what is causing the problem, and not willing to listen to another opinion. It is like he loses interest in the patient after the "fun" part of doing surgery is over. Communication with his staff has been difficult. Conflicting instructions from staff who seem to be unfamiliar with my case. I have lost confidence in the care that I am receiving.


Dr. Stubbs was excellent in both of my visits. I was really impressed how much time he spent listening and determining a diagnosis


thankful for skills and integrity of dr stubbs


He is an excellent surgeon. Needs to work on patient interaction.


After the hour-long delay, I think I had less than five minutes with the doctor. If that is all it takes, that could have been done far more conveniently in a phone call or email.


This is the third opinion I've received on my condition, and definitely the most helpful. Thanks!!


Couldn't be better experience with dr., nurse & staff.


Sometimes our appointment seems rushed. The past two appointments we have left feeling that we drove 2.5 hours and we are just as lost concerning things as we were before coming.


He is an excellent surgeon. Patient interaction is not great.




Dr. Stubbs is very patient and you never feel rushed with him. He could be a little more specific and forthcoming as to follow-up instructions. It often feels like you have to think to ask the right questions or you won't get the information you need.


I am so grateful that Dr. Stubbs listened to me describe all of my symptoms during my initial visit with him. I had searched for an answer for the debilitating pain and weakness in my left hip for 7 or more years. He is very professional and thorough and was able to diagnose my torn labrum right away. The surgery to repair my torn labrum seemed to be working until recently. But, I have no doubt that Dr. Stubbs will help me to make the correct decisions for dealing with the future health of my left hip.


Dr. Stubbs is a very knowledgeable doctor


Dr. Stubbs has been a valuable resource in my orthopaedic care. I like him and trust him. He treats me with respect and empathy.


Dr. Stubbs has made a frustrating process a lot better with his confidence, communication, and care.


Dr Stubbs is a brilliant surgeon and extremely knowledgeable about the condition and complications. He is the only physician I trust to provide care and I recommend him highly to fellow members in my hip support group.


Dr Stubbs is the best, he is professional and caring! we are very fortunate to have him in our area. He even has a good dry sense of humor.


Good excellent communication diagnosis and explanation of options.


Appts always feel rushed.


Dr. Stubbs made me feel as though I was the only patient at the office. He spent an unbelievable amount of time with me going over everything about my options. I am beyond confident that I am receiving the best care in the country for my hip!


I constantly recommend Dr Stubbs to all of the people in the online support group for my condition. Everyone agrees he is exceptional!


Very pleased with the care provider. Will see him again for follow-up on my condition.
