    There is no question in my mind that I came to the right doctor at the right time and I really appreciate the care that he has provided.

    He was extraordinarily professional. Very caring about what he was doing….. (He) gave me the hope that it was going to get better.

    It’s been incredible. Changed my life. When you can’t go from putting your shoe on to where I am today, it’s just wonderful.

    Thanks to the care Dr. Patel has provided I’m able to get back into swimming, have a full day of school, hang out with some friends and just be myself again.

    It has given me a whole knew confidence level for what my body can do and how the healing process actually works. Dr.Bruce never made me feel hurried, answered every one of my questions.. Actually the entire staff made me feel that way.

    He’s kind, considerate, and civil and that gets a lot done. That’s a big part of healing, you know, to have your doctor be your guide. That he is.

    I know Dr. Samuelson would not do surgery if it was not absolutely necessary. That’s a thing I think between patient and surgeon. I mean, you essentially place your life in their hand and that would be difficult to do if you did not have total trust. Which I do, with Dr. Samuelson.

    Dr.Walker was able to get this cartoonist back to doing what he loves.
    I want people to know, don’t put it off. I have the feeling back in my fingers. I don’t have any fire burning. You can’t even see where he worked on me.

    Dr. Elton was able to salvage Roger Taylor’s finger following a devastating injury.
    She’s always smiling, happy to see me like I was her best friend and only person she was concerned about that she was seeing all day.
    She heard my story. She saw my finger and said she doesn’t underst...

  • Dr Elton was wonderful. I have had no real pain and am back to working out after surgery 10 days ago. She is personable, explains everything and a seriously good doctor

  • I have always had fantastic service at KC Bone & Joint. Dr. Bruce and his staff has always taken great care of me over the years in cases of emergency and elective procedures. I take comfort in knowing that any doctor that is assisting Dr Bruce is highly qualified. Dr Josef was polite, easy to talk to and very informative about my condition and my future options. A great bedside manner and his techniques were pain free!

  • I was seen quickly and very happy with Brandon’s ability to identify the cause of my foot pain. He recommended a place to get over the counter shoe inserts. I went there and was very happy with the service I got, especially the great fit the store employee achieved by trying on several options. The inserts are very comfortable. Brandon also gave me a list of exercises to do. They are easy to do and don’t take a lot of time, even though it’s recommended to do them 3 X’s a day. This is 3rd day using inserts and doing exercise & I already feel a difference! In a good way. He also set me up for re-evaluation in 3 months, with the option to cancel if I continue to have problems. Love this path, as opposed to surgery or something more

  • Dr Patel and Dr Elton Thank you sooo much for giving me my hands back! After a couple of years of issues with my hands falling asleep randomly, Dr Patel confirmed the diagnosis if carpal tunnel syndrome in both hands. I've only been typing 30+yrs🤷🏽‍♀️ Dr Elton performed my surgeries and today months out of surgery (recently celebrated 25 yrs if employment at my job, I had to make sure to give them a review. Oh, and scar, what scar? Not noticeable on either wrist! Thank you so much truly 💗

    Diedre Strickland

  • I have been going to KC Bone and Joint Clinic for about 3 years now. When I first went, I could hardly walk. I am now having totally pain free days at a time with both of my knees and my right hip. I have been able to resume most of my normal activities and enjoy them to the fullest. Thank you KC Bone and Joint Clinic.

    Sharon Baker

  • I saw Dr. Saunders, and he was amazing! He was very friendly and took time to listen. He provided thorough explanations for my pain and concerns. He gave me a great treatment plan that would help me avoid a cast or surgery. The whole staff was awesome. I highly recommend!

    Jae Na

  • I met with Dr. Latteier recently for an initial appointment to discuss a hip replacement. I was very favorably impressed with his intelligence, kindness and competence. He spent a great deal of time with me discussing my condition and explaining the procedure etc. After the hip surgery, I will leave another (hopefully EXTREMELY favorable) review. Thank you.

    Kathryn Rankin

  • After my Dr. retired from KC Bone and Joint, I was set up with Dr. Latteier. I really liked him. He's very personable and explains everything.

    Linda Keith

  • Dr. B. is professional, attentive, and knowledgeable. His bed side manner is exceptional. He takes his time when explaining treatment options. He and his staff are honest and ethical so I know I can trust him. I feel safe when I am in Dr. B’s care. His work has been a blessing to my orthopedic recovery process. If you need a surgeon go see Dr. B, he’s qualified and treats his patients with dignity and respect. My overall experience was highly satisfactory. Thank you Dr. B for your services! When the time comes for me to get an ankle replacement, I will be seeing Dr. B.

    Sarah Something

  • I’ve been to KC Bone & Joint several times over the past years and have always had top of the line care. My most recent visit was no different. I was checked in and seen promptly, and the nurse and doctor really took the time to have a dialogue with me regarding my symptoms and issues. I wholeheartedly recommend KCBJ!

  • Dr. Walker is amazing!!!

    Dr. Walker is an amazing Doctor! I had a SUPER frozen shoulder, a torn rotator cuff and two tears in my labrum. I had indescribable pain. Dr. Walker knew right off that surgery was my only option. I could not lift my arm AT ALL, but now I have 95 percent rotation of my arm/shoulder 3 months post surgery. I am so grateful to him for his care, knowledge and physical therapy suggested treatments. Physical therapy is a lot of work, but so well worth it to have movement in my arm again. Thank you:)

  • I was very pleased with how Dr Walker helped me understand why my thumb hurt. He helped me understand my treatment options so I could make the best informed choice. I am very much looking forward to my next appointment with Dr. Walker. The staff was very friendly and caring.

  • I consider Dr. Saline a miracle worker. He has replaced my hip and both of my daughters and did an excellent job. He is one of the most caring Dr.s I have ever known. Thank you Dr. Saline

  • Dr Salin is so kind and really cares about the best treatment for you. He listens to what you are going through and will try all before he will do surgery. I am thankful that I have him for my doctor.

  • Best result possible

    I am a 73 year old retired lawyer who suffered from trigger fingers for years. I stopped playing golf, pickle ball, gardening and playing catch with my 4 grandsons. This spring Dr. Eldon operated on my hand and I could not be happier with the results. I have regained all my hobbies and activities that my hand condition prohibited for several years. She was excellent on the follow up appointments and I will always be thankful to her. I highly recommend Dr. Eldon and her staff to anyone.
