Patient Reviews
Sep 03, 2022
I had been having issues with my right hip for months. I went to see my orthopedic dr I normally see and decided to try a shot in my hip area. That didn’t fix the problem so we did a MRI and turns out i tore my labrum. Did another shot in the joint and physical therapy and was still having issues. I was referred to Dr. Betcher and i am so thankful. My first appointment he did some additional X-rays and then came in and was so nice and explained everything. He recommended surgery because we already tried everything else. They got me scheduled for surgery two weeks from my appointment. Surgery went very well and everyone was so kind. He called me the next day to check in and his nurse is amazing. His bed side manner is amazing. I love that he explains everything and takes his time. I’ve never felt rushed. You are a person to him and not a number.
