Everyone in the clinic are very accommodating, easy to get an appointment and the doctors are very helpful and knowledgeable. It’s my first time to be a patient but my daughter was treated here when she broke her toe 2 yrs ago. I’m very pleased with the outcome and the way they treat patients. Dr Hurley is very nice, personable and easy to talk with.

I’ve seen Dr. Hurley three times now for a broken left humerus bone. He seemed to genuinely care about my issue and explained why it was having the pain I was having and is following up appropriately with x-rays and physical therapy. I’m hoping that my shoulder will be back to new soon

When my physician said if she needed surgery Dr Hurley is the surgeon she would choose.She’s absolutely right!! To put it bluntly and in more guy language. Dr Hurley not only hit a home run on my hand surgery, HE HIT A GRAND SLAM! Totally out of the park. From pre surgery, during surgery and post surgery he made me feel like his brother. He called me several times. And went beyond effort with dealing with my insurance provider. On a scale of one to ten, he gets an eleven.

Dr. Hurley and his staff were great. They were quick to get xrays on property. The doc was easy going and spent the appropriate amount of time given my scenario. He answered the questions that I had and give me the impression that he was genuinely interested in my situation.

Dr. Hurley has been my doctor for well over a decade. He is attentive and professional at every stage of healthcare. He has correctly evaluated and found a solution to every issue. He is also excellent when advising not to pursue some health options. This doctor is a man of integrity.
