"I am very satisfied with my left knee replacement. I suffered with pain and shots for three years just to be able to take care of my 2 grand children. It has been four months since my knee replacement. I have returned to water aerobics. My goal is to return to Pilates and be able to walk in the woods, down to the creek with the children." -- Helen F.

"It’s an exceptional experience being treated by Dr. Hardage. During the past few months, he has seen my mother, Olive, who is 98 years old and me. He’s always very professional and makes you feel as if you are his only patient that day. He is never in any rush to push you out." -- Bill B.

"My experience at Eastern Oklahoma Orthopedic Center was very positive. I had very little wait for my appointment and the staff was friendly and helpful." -- Linda B.

"Dr. Hardage has been treating my lower-back pain for several years and the epidural steroid injections have definitely helped.  The last one in early February has had the most positive outcome to date.  His caring manner and patience is also greatly appreciated.  Dr. Browne provided a total right-knee replacement in December of 2012 and although the recovery was longer than I had anticipated, I couldn't be happier with it now.  While I only actually saw Dr. Browne twice, his staff was always very helpful and considerate." -- Betty A.

"When I injured my knee at first, I wasn't sure what to do. My husband had knee surgery in the past, so he thought a sports medicine doctor would be able to help me. Dr. Hardage and his team were great! They really listened and worked hard to find the cause of my discomfort. They were also very helpful in finding good and an affordable MRI imaging center on my insurance plan. I would definitely recommend this facility!" -- Heather L.
