We went to New West to see doctor Crockett for my wife shoulder. While there I asked Dr Crockett about a issue I was having with my knee. He immediately had me go check in did X-rays and did a consult with me which resulted in me getting a brace to help correct my bone-on-bone arthritis that was on Friday and within three days my knee is feeling a lot better I can walk without paying and my wife even said this is the first time in seven years she has seen me not limp. It was an awesome experience and kudos to dr. Crockett and his staff

Dr May and staff did a tremendous job on my shoulder injury . The repair and therapy at New West PT had be back months sooner than the average recovery time for torn rotator cuff. Would recommend Dr May and have to others .

Dr May is the best! I have had numerous appointments for my knee with him. My knee was injured in a motorcycle accident and they thought I might lose my leg from the knee down. He saved it. I have had 2 repairitive surgeries and 1 removal of hardware. I would not go anywhere else! Dr May has gone above and beyond to make sure I am informed of all procedures.
