In 14 years of injury law practice, I have deposed or spoken with 3/4 of the orthopedic doctors in Atlanta. I cannot emphasize how important it is to get an outstanding orthopedist who not only excels at diagnosis and cure, but who actually listens. Bedside manner is one of those intangible qualities that makes all of the difference.
Neurologists are famous as a group for having the worst listening skills but with orthopedists, it varies widely. Do remember to give your Doctor some slack as they are under heavy time pressure due to health insurance and practice requirements that really only gives them 7-15 minutes per patient, depending on the complexity.
The largest orthopedic practices in the City of Atlanta and the perimeter are Resurgens and Peachtree Orthopedics. These practices are huge and have offices at many convenient locations.
