Average Rating: 4.9
"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.
"When I learned I needed a total hip replacement, I made every effort to try and find the best-qualified surgeon to perform the operation. Being a very active 67-year-old most of my life I had to give up most of my activities including 30 years of tennis as time went by.  Walking and shopping even became a chore. Dr. Ramsey was the fourth surgeon I went to see and I knew he was the one after my first visit. Knowing the great outcome of another person, Dr. Ramsey operated on me and made me more comfortable with my decision. I definitely made the right choice. Dr. Ramsey, his assistant, nurse, and the staff at Conway Hospital were excellent. I have already recommended him to a few people who eventually will need a knee or hip replacement. Don't wait to have this procedure done. It will change your life. It's just been a month and I am getting better and better as each day goes by. Thanks to Dr. Ramsey and the staff at Conway Medical Hospital!" -- Marilyn G.

"I tore my ACL playing football. Dr. Tupis did my surgery. He and his staff were so vey kind and nice. I love to go to office visits. They really make you feel at home. I would recommend him to anyone that needs surgery. Thank you Dr. Tupis and staff." -- DeTrell D.
"My husband suffered hip pain that was limiting his ability to work and otherwise enjoy life.  After visiting Coastal Orthopedics and being evaluated first by Dr. Preslar, it was determined that he needed hip replacement.  Dr. Preslar turned him over to his colleague Dr. Ramsey. Without delay, Dr. Ramsey and his team studied X-rays and MRIs that had been done added some physical exams of their own and scheduled hip-replacement surgery. The surgery has been very successful and my husband was very quickly restored to activities and work. His treatment and care prior to, during and after surgery has been "top quality." The Coastal Orthopedics program from our first visit throughout and including hospital stay and care, doctors, nurses, any and all support staff, was more than we expected. We remember all with high regards and grateful appreciation. Tremendous thanks for a number one health-care program." -- Patricia and Floyd M.

"Dr. Tupis is one outstanding surgeon. He is very compassionate, caring, and with the highest professional standard of excellence. I was increasingly in trouble with daily tasks like cooking and showering. I had to forget even just chipping and putting practice in golf. This surgery has been like a miracle for me. The facilities were impressive with a team of very efficient staff members. This surgeon is beyond thanking." -- Peter J.
