Patient Reviews

"Excellent visit. I moved to Conway from upstate New York and had to find new doctor. I'm glad I found Dr. Ramsey and Dr. Tupis. They both took their time with me and helped me very much. The nurses and everyone were very kind and helpful also. I am looking forward to my future visits. Thank you." -- Pete M.

"In February 2012, I had right knee replacement surgery. Another MB doctor did it.  It went very wrong from the start. I suffered for 1-1/2 years before I found Dr. Ramsey.  It was my blessing. He agreed to fix what had been wrong. In September 2013, he did a revision surgery on my right knee. He found that the kneecap was not attached properly and had separated from the implant. Dr. Ramsey corrected it and I am not totally healed. THANK YOU DR. RAMSEY. I cannot say enough about the confidence, skill, and knowledge he had about replacement knee revision. I felt very confident from the first time I met him." -- Mitchel M.

"Hip was replaced 1/8/14. I was ready to play golf again 2/21/14. I had a wonderful experience. Not nearly as bad as I thought it would be. Coastal Orthopedics has a great staff especially Dr. Ramsey." -- Gary C.

"Dr. Ramsey replaced my hip and my knee a year later. He did a wonderful job." -- Charles O.

"Last November, I had my right knee replaced.  During the entire process, Coastal Orthopedics treated me as a person, not a patient.  Everything went great.  So when it came time to do my left knee, it was a no brainer. Coastal Orthopedics will do my surgery again." -- Robert T.

"I am set up for a complete right hip replacement on October 21st. This will be the first of two. The second one will be done in the spring. I am a 43-year-old male. I have just moved to Myrtle Beach about two months ago from Upstate NY. I found out before moving that this would be my next step. Everyone on Dr. Ramsey’s team including him has been great. I am very comfortable in saying I have made the right choice with this team." -- Tony P.

"I am the wife of Louis Eckert and I thank God for all the physicians' care giving. Not to mention their awesome staffs. We have been in Myrtle Beach for 3 years. Proper diagnosis from Dr. Mills led my husband to Dr. Ramsey. Two successful hip surgeries later, he was playing golf and working until he broke his left foot. Again, the appropriate treatment from Dr. Taylor has led to finally being able to play golf again, take walks, and work. I will be forever grateful to the physicians and staff!" -- Wife of Louis E.

"I am currently four weeks post op from Achilles tendon surgery done by Dr. Taylor.  He and Dr. Tupis have been excellent. The office and support of the staff have been superb! I am a registered nurse and spend long hours on my feet so I am hoping for a full recovery that will allow me to return to my current employer.  Prior to this injury, I had been a patient of Dr. Ramsey due to osteoarthritis in my right knee Thank you for your fine services and maybe I will be getting knee surgery someday in the future." -- Linda W.

"Dr Ramsey is treating my right knee problem.  He is understanding of my medical problem with my leg and has been treating my problem with proper meds.  An operation on my knee is in the future. He comes highly recommended by my neighbors and close friends. He listens to me when I explain my problems with my knee and has given me different options on treating my knee. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone who is looking for an orthopedic surgeon." -- Malvina M.

"I had a revision on my left hip on July 15, 2013. The operation was very successful. I have had relatively no pain during the recovery. This is quite remarkable seeing that I am a 77-year-old male. I would like to recommend that any one needing a hip replacement, contact Coastal Orthopedics and ask for Dr. Ramsey. I also had major rotor cuff surgery two years ago at Coastal Orthopedics and had the same excellent results. Hats off to Coastal Orthopedics. You have made my life more enjoyable." --Ray D.
