    How was your appointment with Dr. Bugbee?

    Jan 30, 2023
    From first visit to last I was impressed with Dr. Bugbee!! He is both caring and on top of his field!! I will trust know other surgeon from here on out. My total left hip replacement is turning out fantastic!!! Love the Force app that gives you after surgery exercises week by week with video's. Follow the directions and you will be 100 percent satisfied I can tell. I'm at the exercise point of doing them everyday for the next year and know that when I am done there will be zero pain as I am almost there already and it has only been three months. I am so satisfied with him I will be returning for my knee replacement in April. After that God willing no more will have to be done. Thank you Dr Bugbee and your whole team both in the office and in the hospital!!
