"Dr. Alci helped me find the best solution to a problem I had lived with from a 1972 auto accident. He guided me to Dr. Watson and she helped me decide a solution to the pain. I know it will not be forever but every day is without being a slave to pain. To be living without pain pills and feeling more each day like my old self is worth its weight in gold. I just want to thank the entire staff for their caring and professional help." – Patricia B.

"I was experiencing severe pain in my hands with significant swelling and having extreme difficulty performing my job as a chemotherapy infusion nurse. I called your office for an appointment and was given one for 6 days later. I thought that was great! Then the person I spoke with informed me about your Ortho Clinic offered  from 5-7pm Monday through Thursday. I went to the clinic that day and was seen by a provider and given a script for some steroids to help reduce the inflammation. I was impressed and pleased with Dr. Gayton and the treatment I received at my 1st appointment. I appreciated that he treated me with respect as a longtime medical professional-as a nurse for the last 41 years. That meant a lot to me.  My surgical procedure was conducted very efficiently with all parties involved being helpful and caring professionals. I'm still being followed by Dr. Gayton and receiving some hand therapy at Coastal Rehab.  So far I'm happy to say that my experience with Coastal Orthopedics has been great and I have shared it with some friends and acquaintances and recommend your practice to them. Thank you for all you do." – Anne W. 
"I had a shoulder problem that needed professional help. My family doctor arranged my appointment with Coastal Orthopedics because I wanted a location close to home. I was surprised at the number of doctors at Coastal Orthopedics but the staff has it all very well organized and I didn't have a very long wait before I was seen by Dr. Gayton. Dr. Gayton did a great job of diagnosing my problem and prescribed physical therapy which, I'm pleased to say, worked great, no surgery needed. I'm thankful for that.   I would highly recommend Coastal Orthopedics and Dr. Gayton. Coastal Orthopedics has a specialist to fix your specific ailment." – Susan R.
"I had my left hip replaced and the whole process and recovery went great. I was on the golf course again 6 weeks after my surgery and now my hip feels as well as it ever has. The whole team at Coastal Orthopedics, from the nurses, Chris the PA, and Dr. Ramsey were great. I know later this year I will need my right hip done, but after the experience with my left one, I am very confident and optimistic of getting the second one day and feeling young again. Thanks to all." – Stephen M.
