- "In a consultation Dr. Pope explained the surgery procedure and the expected results. I was confident going forward with the surgery and the result was exactly as was explained to me. Post surgery instructions we're clear and pain was minimal and it required no prescription medicine."
- “Dr. Pope has been pleasant every time I’ve seen him. I like how I am listened to when I talk. Dr. Pope is both friendly and professional.”
- "Dr.Pope was very professional and empathetic toward my issue. He gave me all my options and was very thorough with the pros and cons. He was my wrist surgeon after a fall two years ago. He and his staff did an excellent job to repair the damage and make sure I was mobile again. In my opinion, he is the best! I would recommend him for all those who require hand and elbow care."
