you should see Dr Morgan at the Orthopeodic Centers of the Va's. It's located in Princeton and he is a wonderful Dr. Good bedside manner's and very up to date on everything!!! he has treated my daughter 4 or 5 times for torn ligaments and tendon's. He treated me for both knee's. He is great!!!

I hoped I would fine answers here. But you can't trust people to tell the true about doctors anymore.
Because he told you something you did NOT like now he's a bad DOCTOR that's why people go to Charleston Wv or out of state to there doctors then you complain because these doctors and our nurse leave. When will you be happy? I'm my brothers keeper I thought we all felt like this. One day you will need to know about a doctor but you will Stop and think is these people telling the truth think about it you will be in my shoes on day. Needing someone to tell you the truth.
Bad Hip

I have seen several orthopedic doctors around the area but I still have to go to Morgantown, or possibly out of state for my problem. I have a torn Labrum in the right hip and the Bursa has to come out as well. The last orthopedic doctor I seen was in Princeton (Orthopedics Of The Two Virginia's). Most of the orthopedic dr's may do ok when it comes to a knee, elbow, or shoulder but IF you have to have something done to your hip, then it is best to go to Morgantown or out of state, if possible. My doctor that I see at Princeton told me that he COULD NOT do the surgery and his colleagues couldn't do it either because of everything that is wrong with my hip now. I had also seen Dr.Nelson, liked him but did not like his bedside manner so I did not go back to him again. I'm not about to let one of those quacks in Beckley cripple me the way I've known of them to do so many others. I recommend the "Orthopedics Of The Two Virginia's" because they DO know what they are doing and they won't play games or beat around the bush!! Good luck to everyone!

I would not see him if he was the last orthopedic surgeon in the tri-state area. He is more concerned with quantity instead of quality. I know a few people who have been treated by him and they have problems now. I've heard wonderful things about Branson and Morgan though.

Took my daughter to him for chronic muscle and back pain despite her pediatrician telling us he wouldn't recommend it. He referred her at my request because she was suffering and I was tired of traveling to Morgantown. He said she was doing great! She is NOT doing great! DO NOT TAKE YOUR CHILD THERE! We will stick with Dr. Lynch in Morgantown.

Take him to Dr. Shuff at Neurological Associates in Chas. He's an orthopedic spine surgeon and specializes in scoliosis. My child sees him and we love him.

Please, Do not let Dr. Nelson perform ANY type of surgery. I am NOT, nor have ever been an employee of Dr. Nelson. I work for a family practice physician, & we have sent several patients to WVU in Morgantown, to correct surgeries that Dr. Nelson did incorrectly.

If you want to know the real truth about a doctor, just look them up by name on the WV Medical Licensing Board website! It's free, it will tell you all the details of his education, specializations, any extra or advanced training, years in practice and where, and any lawsuits or censured received due to malpractice or complaints.

I never go to any doctor or medical professional without checking their license first!

I have taken my daughter there for two separate injuries. I have nothing bad to say about the doctor personally, however his front office employees and the way they treat patients is ridiculous. My daughter was scheduled at 7:45 am and did not see Dr. Nelson until 11:30. Wake up Doc! Hire people who are fit to work with the public- the lady who schedules acts like a miserable cow! I will not go back to his office simply because of his rude, inconsiderate, unprofessional staff!
Please don't go to home I had a basketball injury he said I needed surgery when I got a done and was bout to get m. Pins out he ttold me I had to leave them in for a lil bit longer this other doctor told me I never needed anything done but Nelson all bout money
