"At our 1st meeting with Dr. Salsbury I was impressed with his resume and his friendliness. He put me at ease and I left confident that he will do a great job as my surgeon." – Eugene S. 
"He explained what I needed and what to expect post surgery. I am very pleased and heard good things about him at therapy." – Loren M. 
"My experience with Dr. Waterman and his staff has been nothing but great. All my questions and concerns have been answered. Before this incident, I have never been seriously injured or had any previous surgeries so initially I was super nervous and overwhelmed with all that was to come, but Dr. Waterman put me at ease with all the knowledge he provided me to better understand the situation. And to top it off surgery went great! Very happy with my experience here at CIO. :-)" – Devyn W. 
"I simply cannot have had a better experience. Dr. Heavion was thorough and sensitive to my situation. I never felt pushed into surgery in any way. It was a decision to whether I should have arthroscopic as opposed to a complete knee replacement. Dr Heavilon informed me of the objectives and consequences of both procedures. Then allowed me to come to my own conclusion as to what was best for me.  I also want to commend the nursing staff as well as the office staff. They couldn't have been friendlier or more professional.  The surgical team: Dr. Heavilon, Dr. Reising and the team of nurses were absolutely terrific, kept me comfortable, and me and my family members stress free throughout the surgical procedure." – Patricia R.  
"He was excellent, knowledgeable, and efficient." – Lawrence G.

"As always, greeted warmly and familial by front desk team. Checked in courteously and promptly at Dr. Carter's 'station' and seen within 10 minutes. Dr. Carter was, as is the norm at Central Indiana Orthopedics, professional, courteous and anxious to ensure my condition had improved under his care/direction which it has. CIO sets the mark for healthcare excellence, professionalism, courtesy and efficiency. Thank you!" – William K.

"Dr. Waterman performed an excellent operation on my rotator cuff. I have followed his instruction to the letter and currently have wonderful use of my shoulder. I recommend this doctor to any one needing expert care." – Thomas M. 
"This is not the first time that I have seen Meghan Barrus. And my visits have not all been for the same problem. What I like about Meghan more than anything else is that she completely listens to me. I am in no doubt that she considers everything I have to say before she tells me what she thinks my problem is. Not only does she tells me what she think is wrong, but she will follow up with X-rays or MRI and take that knowledge other doctors to confirm it. Then she sets forth my plan of action after talking with me about what I think I can reasonably handle, and it always ends well.  I have seen other doctors at CIO over the years and it has always been the same results. Doctors are concerned about their patient. We are not just a number. If they fail. it is because I failed to give them pertinent information or voice my concerns. It isn't because their lack of knowledge.  Central Indiana Orthopedics will always be my choice. I have never been disappointed in the care I have received there." – Lenella M.
