"My experience with your practice is always a positive one.  I have been a patient of Dr. Haskin, Dr. Ramsey, and Dr. Watson, and all of them (plus their staff) have been most helpful and supportive." --Florence V.
Treated by: Erin E. Watson, M.D.
"Before meeting with Dr. Peter Ramsey, I really had no reason, besides my dogs, to wake up every day. I was living in constant, severe pain at the age of 51. I met with Dr. Peter Ramsey for the first time in late summer of 2012. I know I'm not alone in saying that he did not make me wait or  beat around the bush. He came in quickly, talked with me for a few minutes (already had my X-rays, bone scan, etc.), and explained my options to me. I knew he had already studied my file because he did not miss a beat, and he let me know exactly what he was going to do to give me a better quality of life. That right there, showed me that he cares about each and every one of his patients, even right down to your time, and that is very refreshing and reassuring.   "Here I am now, April of 2013, and I'm better then ever. Dr. Peter Ramsey performed a total hip replacement, September  2012, and a total knee replacement, January of 2013. This man has given me back a reason to live. I am walking with  no cane, walker, or pain medication. In my eyes, Dr. Ramsey and Chris, who is also very caring, smart, and amazing, were  my angels. They really are a great team. They are amazing. From the time your appointments are given to you until the time you are released, everything runs so smoothly because of the amazing work not just of Dr. Ramsey, but the whole team. I would recommend Coastal Orthopedics to everyone and give them two thumbs up.   "I would like to thank Dr. Ramsey, Chris, Tasha, all the nurses on the wing, and anyone who had a hand in giving me my life back......THANK YOU ALL!" --Jacqueline W.

"I was pleased with Dr. Tupis. It was my first time seeing him and he made me feel just as comfortable as Dr. Elliott did. Of Course Misty King is the best nurse ever. My surgery is tomorrow (2/13/14) and I am convinced it will go well. I have had nothing but good experiences with the doctors I've seen as well as my son." -- Tami D.
"I recently had xlif surgery and am still recovering, however I feel that the surgery has definitely rid me of chronic pain in my lower back. I was active as a senior, the surgery performed by Dr. Mills has allowed me to become as active as I was before the pain." -- Judith B.
I want to express my thanks to you all for your wonderful support and encouragement over these past 5 months. I continue to recover from a stress fracture of my left heel. It's been a very long, slow recovery - and I will admit that I am so frustrated!!! I am just ready to be healed. Both Dr. Tupis and Dr. Taylor told me this type injury would be slow to heal, for me to hang in there and that I would be able to run again. And, I will. :) Each year since 2002, I have participated in the MB half or full marathon. I had registered for the February 16 event a few days before my injury occurred.  So, next week I will be on the sidelines at the MB marathon cheering on my training/running partner as she crosses the finish line. We are hopeful that I will run alongside her again soon. When given the "ok" to run again, I promise to take "baby steps" and not run too far too soon! I'll see you in a few weeks!" -- Wanda L.
"I am 55 years of age and have had difficulty with my left knee for many years. I have officiated high school football for 30 years and enjoy this activity very much. Recently I underwent a total knee replacement under the care and direction of Dr. Peter Ramsey. I am well on the road to recovery and hope to resume the avocation of officiating again this season. I am very thankful to Dr. Ramsey and the caring team of professionals such as Chris, Ann, and Tasha for providing me with such excellent care." -- Bryan F.

"After years of back pain, Dr. Mills suggested an X-LIF, a less-invasive surgical procedure to remedy my problem. My entire experience with him and his staff, both medical and surgical, were top-notch and the procedure went off without a hitch.  I would not look any further for orthopedic service in the future than with Coastal Orthopedics." -- Gary C.
"I have suffered with back pain for most of my adult life. I consulted with orthopedic physicians in my hometown, tried chiropractic treatments, injections into the back and into the nerve.  The pain became increasingly worse and nothing I tried helped. I called Coastal Orthopedics and spoke with someone there about the different treatments and surgeries that they offered. I then asked my primary physician about what she knew about Coastal Orthopedics and, in particular, about Dr. Mills. I also went on the Internet and read all of the information I was able to find on Coastal Orthopedics and Dr. William Mills.  I was impressed with everything I learned and called and made an appointment for a consultation with Dr. Mills. I felt very comfortable making a decision to have Dr. Mills do the surgery that I needed. I underwent surgery on November 2, 2012 and was driving again on November 7, 2012 and went back to work on November 12, 2012. I think this is remarkable after having major back surgery. I would highly recommend Coastal Orthopedics and Dr. William Mills to anyone who is in need of or considering back surgery. I am enjoying being pain free for the first time in years and doing a lot of things that I have not been able to do in many years." -- Sandra M.
"I would like to commend Coastal Orthopedics for initiating a pump maintenance program when no other practice would consider it. I was forced to travel to New Jersey every two to three months for pump adjustments and refills. At first I was treated by Dr. Watson and then switched to Dr. Wilkins who not only treated my pain problems, but also diagnosed my sleep apnea, which I never imagined I even had.  Dr. Wilkins is the best. He is considerate, caring and a competent diagnostician. I was also treated by Dr. Ramsey who replaced my left knee after many years of chronic pain due to sports related surgeries. I must say that your approach to joint replacement is quite remarkable. From the first encounter with a nursing coordinator throughout the entire process I was impressed by the amount of information that I received regarding my treatment plan. After surgery my pain was well managed and physical therapy began immediately the next day. After two days of therapy I was discharged and began my recovery with home therapy and then to a rehabilitation practice for a short time. Thank you all." -- Marc N.
