Read what our patients are saying about their experiences at Eastern Oklahoma Orthopedic Center.
"On November 13th I had outpatient surgery at the Natalie Surgical Center. It was an overwhelmingly positive experience! I was extremely impressed with everyone involved from the admissions desk to the nurse who wheeled me out, and every one in between. I want to give special accolades to Dr. Scott Rahhal and his PA Sharon and their team who specifically were involved with the surgery. They all answered any questions I had and were very professional. This was by far the best surgical/medical experience I have ever had, and I will enthusiastically recommend Saint Francis Hospital and Dr. Rahhal and his staff." -- Duke S.
"I had the same procedure on my left knee a year ago by a different doctor. That knee has never been pain free and the swelling was terrible so I was hesitant to have my right knee done. I was referred to Dr. Lorton by my chiropractor. I was very nervous about having the procedure, and I have really only met Dr. Lorton two times at appointments. So I was just trusting God that all would go well. I can't begin to tell you what a different experience this was. My hospital care the day of surgery was all superb, and I was walking the same day as surgery. Within a week, I was back to everyday things and driving. I highly recommend Dr. Lorton. I feel so much better! I've been telling everyone I know, even out-of-towners, that if your insurance will cover it, he's worth the drive. :)" -- Jennifer S.
"It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words. Consequently, to save you having to read over a thousand of my words to praise Dr. Ahmadinia I resported to a few pictures from the internet."

"My son received a knee injury during a college football game and was fortunate enough to be playing in Muskogee. Dr. Hardage is so kind and caring. We appreciate all he does for us. He made time to see my son, the next day and told him to contact him at any time if he had any other issues or concerns. We are so blessed to have such a special and experienced physician as Dr. Hardage. Thanks to you and your wonderful staff!" -- Susie K.
"I've been an Eastern Oklahoma Orthopedic Center patient since the mid 70’s. While being a punter for the University of Tulsa, I had several surgeries on both knees over the years. In January 2011, I had double total knee replacement by Dr. Chris Browne. I was chipping and putting golf balls after 3 weeks. I also played my first full round of golf at 8 weeks and shot a 77. That was in 18 holes not 9. In April 2013, I had my right shoulder repaired for a torn biceps tendon and a tear in my rotator cuff by Dr. Brad Boone. I was chipping and putting golf balls in about 4 weeks and started playing golf fully in 12 weeks. I have been more than very pleased with my experiences with Eastern Oklahoma Orthopedic Center, from the pre surgery visits through the post surgery rehabilitation. I highly recommend Eastern Oklahoma Orthopedic Center to anyone needing corrective surgery for knees and shoulders particularly Drs. Browne and Boone. I am having my left shoulder repaired by Dr. Boone on the 26th of November and expect the same professionalism and success I have had since the mid 70's." -- Rick E.
"I am scheduled for knee replacement next Monday. I am very impressed with my choice of physician. I have heard many good things about him and trust his knowledge. I was a little nervous at first but the level of professionalism and the way that many of the details are worked out ahead of time have totally impressed me. I can't say that I am looking forward to my surgery but I am very pleased that I chose Dr. Browne and look forward to a more active life in a few weeks." -- Norma J.
"I had been having trouble with my joints for years. I have Lupus, which adds to the discomfort. My knees are the worst and I need a total knee replacement. I just had my right one done two and a half weeks ago. I'm not 100% yet, but I am a lot further along than I thought I would be. I am pleasantly surprised at how well my recovery is going. I go back to Dr. Browne in five days and am excited to show him my progress! Everyone at Eastern Oklahoma Orthopedic Center has been wonderful and a special thanks to my at-home nursing and physical therapy care from Community Home Health! I can't wait to get out there and play with my grand kids again! Thank you Dr Browne!" -- Sylvia H.
"To date, Dr. Boone has performed one major and four arthroscopic surgeries on me. Each time, I have returned to my daily activities as well as I was before the procedure. In the near future, I will require a knee replacement. I am quite confident that Dr. Boone will make me as good as new once again." -- Lloyd B.
"Every visit I have made to Dr. Hardage's office has been very pleasant. The staff is great with patients. I will continue to consult him." -- Patty R.
"One of the best experiences my family has had with doctors. My son Jordan was injured during football this past season, where he had broken his arm and dislocated his shoulder. The Eastern Oklahoma Orthopedic Center staff was very professional and personable. Dr Brad Boone did the surgery placing a pin in the brake and the dislocated shoulder. The surgery was on October 4th, 2013. As of November 15th, 2013, my son was completely healed from his injuries and is back doing what he loves to do and that is sports. All this would not be possible without the best surgeon and staff around. I would personally like to thank the Eastern Oklahoma Orthopedic Center staff and everyone involved for a great experience." -- Dustin S.
