Patient Reviews

Average Rating: 4.9
"My experience has been very helpful and has improved my quality of life. Before treatment, I wasn’t eating, could barely cook a proper meal, and properly clean my home. I couldn’t even enjoy my six-year-old son for activities. The park was even unbearable. I have and do recommend Dr. Watson to all. She is very sincere, helpful, and so is her staff. Although I’m not 100% yet, I’m a lot better than before and expect to only improve more. I’m so grateful for Dr. Watson’s caring attentive ways and for her kind staff. If it were not for Dr. Watson, I wouldn’t have been able too paint the cow shirt for my son for his play. I also wouldn’t be able to attend school on regular basis." -- Lisa R.

"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 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.

"I had a right shoulder problem for a few months, where the symptoms were so bad; I could hardly use my arm. My primary care physician had referred me to Dr. Preslar, who had an MRI done and immediately referred me to Dr. Tupis. We discovered I had a rotator cuff tear. Dr. Tupis performed the surgery and within a few short weeks of treatment and therapy, I am doing great! Dr. Tupis has a great "bed side manner" and listened to my complaints with an understanding and knowledge of what is wrong and how to proceed with the treatment. I wouldn’t hesitate to use Dr. Tupis or Dr. Preslar at Coastal Orthopedics again." -- Hilda S.
"I had therapy on the left shoulder in the summer and fall of 2012. I had surgery on the right shoulder in August of 2013. I requested physical therapy right after surgery. Dr. Tupis agreed and got me signed in. The physical therapy of Coastal Orthopedics has helped me twice now. Two skilled and very well trained ladies, Santina & Jennifer, are both very persistent and thorough in their treatment for me. This is a great place for rehab. From my observations, I see caring and professionalism by all the staff. They truly are a great group of folks. Many thanks!" -- Bill T.
"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.

"The staff and doctors are great! I had to have a total left knee replacement. The doctor and staff made my experience as comfortable as possible. They were always available if I needed them or had any concerns. I wouldn't have had it done anywhere else.  Thank You Coastal Orthopedics!" -- Edith S.
"I have had occasion to visit both Dr. Ramsey and Dr. Tupis for treatment of injuries I received from a fall last year. I have been very pleased with the ability to obtain an appointment quickly and have been pleased with the care and concern shown to me and with prompt action to heal my injuries." -- Elizabeth S.
