    Went to Dr. Davis on my GP's recommendation for a second opinion on a torn bicep muscle. He was thorough, straight with me (said I didn't need the surgery but gave me the pro's and con's) and picked up on the fact that my first MD misdiagnosed the location of the tear. He was patient in his explanations and understandable and welcomed my questions. I have full faith in him and although I didn't have the surgery, I felt he had integrity to try not to "sell me" on unnecessary surgery.

    He did an excellent job on my surgery and follow up. All was as expected. He answers questions thoroughly but does not waste patient time. Addressed new issue right away without having to make another appointment just for it.

    Given the extent of my injury and accident, Dr. Davis did a miraculous job getting me back to normal. He always kept me informed of what to keep an eye on, and how to address certain aspects of my new life adjusting to this injury. I am nearly back to normal now, and it would not have been possible without Dr. Davis.

    Dr. Davis is a stellar orthopedic surgeon who consistently demonstrates his knowledge, expertise, and professionalism during my visits to the Center for Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine. He took the time to thoroughly explain my hip joint problem and readily addressed all of my questions and concerns related to surgery. He even walked me through my XRays and MRI results and explained exactly what he was going to do during surgery. After surgery, he scheduled regular follow up appointments to ensure my recovery was going well. He has been very accommodating throughout the process and did everything he could to make sure my needs were met. He is also regarded highly by others and is considered “the best” in the field. It was a pleasure working with him and I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone experiencing joint problems.

    I was told at the emergency room good news you don't need surgery, bad news you broke your leg. They told me to wait a few days and call Dr. Davis so that he could place a cast. Dr. Davis came HIGHLY recommended by friends who work at INOVA, their comment "he's the best!". I saw Dr. Davis on a Wednesday for a consult. He was very professional and was very empathic to me- crying over having to have surgery! He took the time to explain the procedure and the need to have surgery. Surgery was scheduled two days later, which I thought was very fast! He made sure a nerve block was done to make sure I wasn't in pain and gave me pain killers. During the whole recovery process, 3 months, he was very professional and answered all my questions. I would HIGHLY recommend him. Also, office staff is on top of it! Very low wait time and they make sure if there is something they can do while waiting, like remove cast or take an x-ray, they do!!

    Dr. Davis is simply outstanding. He saw my daughter as a brand new patient on Christmas Eve when no other orthopedist would, after she had an unexpected injury tearing the ligament across her ankle. He offered treatment options that allowed my daughter to try to work to heal through therapy and then when surgery became the only option in the end, he did an outstanding job, leaving her with a scar that no one will ever see that lets her still wear her high heels. He explains everything simply, in easy to understand terms and instills great confidence and hope that an injury can and will heal.

    I saw Dr. Davis for a consultation on a Monday, and was in Surgery by Friday. He is very friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. The surgery went extremely well and he made me feel comfortable throughout the entire process. I am returning to have the same carpal tunnel surgery on my other hand in a few months. I highly recommend Dr. Davis.

    As I age I find that I need to see Dr. Davis more often! A blessing for those of us with age related pain. Dr. Davis is very clear in his assessment, surgery recovery time was remarkable, and his warm personality makes the whole experience much more acceptable. Thank you Dr. Davis and staff!

    I had surgery on my rotator cuff tendon and it was extensive surgery and through it all I felt totally confident with Dr. Davis. This is the second time I came to Dr. Davis, the first was for a strained knee. He is very open and honest and at the same time doesn't cause you to worry about what you may need to do. Everyone behind the desk is extremely helpful and they guide you through the most trying day of appearing there right after surgery. They scheduled PT for me and took care of insurance issues. I highly recommend this group.

  • vitals

    Dr. Lonnie Davis and his staff were very personable and made me feel very supported from injury through my recovery. Everyone was always eager to help me in any way they could and made my recovery process as stress-free as possible. Before my surgery, I was very nervous about the process and Dr. Davis walked me through each step of the surgery, healing process, and rehabilitation. I had trouble getting my insurance straighten out at the beginning and his staff was super helpful and I couldn't haven't straightened it out without them! I would recommend him and his team to all my family and friends!

    I've nothing but excellent feedback to give in terms of Dr. Davis and the entire group @ Center for Orthopedics and Sports Medicine. From the front desk, to technicians, to the checkout desk and even just as important a top notch Physical Therapy facility on site that is in direct coordination with the Dr Davis and the front desk. Adam and Mike are excellent in the PT department in terms of knowledge and challenging you to meet your goals after surgery. Everyone has a great attitude and have been well trained in terms of alleviating any issues, questions or concerns one might have. If something should occur it was dealt with right away. You can't go wrong with this group and I need to repeat that the cohesiveness between PT facility & Orthopedic facility at the same site along with the personnel that makes it happen is very important. Thanks!

    After doing my research and reading several reviews I found Dr. Davis. He not only figured my issue and took care of me in the most professional way possible, but I also had a bad experience with my previous surgeon. This experience really has helped me recover and mentally prepare for an active and life full of ease thanks to his amazing work. I am a 25 year old that was going through a rough time for the past three years with a surgery to my ACL/Meniscus that never healed properly. Thank you MD L. Donnie Davis and staff for the wonderful experience.

  • vitals

    Excellent! Felt my knee and knew exactly what it was before I had the MRI. Listens and answers all your questions. Has a dry sense of humor but overall does a wonderful job! He performed my knee surgery with no problems. I have been recovering well.

  • vitals

    Doctor Davis is exceptional at orthopedic diagnosis and procedures.

  • vitals

    My 16 year old son had a Plica Syndrome. Dr. Davis was able to cure my son's knee that other professional doctors in the area could not first diagnose and then treat after the x-ray and MRI results, and even thought a surgery was necessary to remove the plica. Whereas Dr. Davis and his experience physiotherapists were able to help him to get rid of all the pain and the problem in 3 weeks with physiotherapy. I would strongly recommend this doctor to everyone in the area who have similar problems.

  • vitals

    Dr. Davis has done surgery on both of my knees with positive results both times. He is very professional and friendly. He takes the time to ensure you understand the diagnosis and treatment options. His staff and the associated physical therapy operation are very knowledgeable and helpful.

    Needed to be persistent about follow up paperwork and doctors.

    really takes the time to explain problem/procedure. Extremely professional Dr.

    Excellent responsiveness and bedside manner. Fixed both my wife and I up after very unfortunate and untimely injuries, and scheduled our surgeries even though there were a lot of other people requesting appointments. Would definitely recommend.

    Was very happy with Dr. Davis. He was very good at letting me know what my problem was and getting treatment. I knew exactly what to expect when I had the surgery and I am recovering very well. It's now three days post surgical and my expectation of my recovery has be more than exceeded.

    I would like to thank Dr. Davis, Chris and his staff for the excellent service and (more importantly) their patience and support during my shoulder (labrum) surgery and recuperation. Dr. Davis was very skilled and provided information while easing my concerns regarding the process and recovery. His staff was excellent and even my Mother, who accompanied me to surgery, was impressed with their level of service. I am also grateful for their follow up afterwards as I ran into issues with my insurance company. The office was equally prepared and provided all documentation to support my claim and insurance needs.

    I have used Dr Davis for both my teen athletes, for surgery for one and for rehab for both. He is extremely knowledgeable, conservative in his approach, and talks with parents but also the teens so that they understand the prognosis and their responsibilities for recovery. Plus he has been accessible to me as I have questions. He works with a great team -- in the office, in surgery and in the rehab unit. I cannot say enough good things about the expertise of the rehab staff in rebuilding range of motion, strenghth and confidence.

    Dr. Davis was first my doctor with a broken wrist and later a torn ACL. His treatment was superior for both injuries. He is not overly anxious to operate when another option is available and can produce the same, if not superior results. He also was my granddaughter's physician who suffered a soccer injury. Our family could not imagine going to anyone else!

  • vitals

    I had a nine-year old skiing injury that included a torn meniscus and a hole in my cartilage. I required a microfracture surgery, which Dr. Davis did with excellence. I am about six months out and can now run again. Dr. Davis is caring, professional and thorough. He is helpful in getting you to your post operation goals. I am planning to train for a marathon as soon as I am a year out.

    I injured my knee in a fall. Dr. Davies was caring, professional and polite. His diagnosis was accurate, but he took x-rays to be sure, and followed up well. When I had a further problem with swelling, he saw me the same day. The physical therapy team were caring and helpful there also. I would happily recommend Dr. Davies to friends and relatives.

  • vitals

    Dr. Davis is professional physican. I need an orthopedic to trust with my pains and treatments and so far I am satisfied. The staff works hard and there is usually no wait especially when people cannot move too fast.Compared to other orthopedics with 10 as the highest so far he gets a 9.5 because that's life.

  • vitals

    I am a regular orthopedic patient -- meaning I have needed this specialty for various injuries and conditions for most of my life. So I think I can be relied upon for sound judgment of such doctors. Lonnie is young and so far has done a good job with two injuries I experienced -- no surgery involved. However, his affiliated rehab facility tends to push unnecessary rehab appts., and even may have caused a shoulder strain to me, so be careful and use your own best judgment as to what is needed and when to stop going.

    Dr.Davis is the best! He repaired a broken tibia plateau on my right leg as well as a broken wrist a few years before. Both surgeries and follow up care were very successful. He is extremely knowledgeable and a super surgeon. I cannot imagine having anyone else as my orthopedic doctor. He also treated both my granddaughters for sport injuries with great results. My entire family holds him in very high regard, and we are confident in recommending him as your orthopedic physician and your sports medicine doctor.

    Dr. Davis is the best. He is friendly, knowledgeable, and performs high quality surgery. Most importantly he worked with me to perform last minute emergency surgery. I hurt my finger around midnight on a Thursday and visited the hospital to find out if it was broken. The doctor at the hospital confirmed that my finger was broken, and recommended that I see Dr. Davis. On Friday mornings Dr. Davis starts at 7:00 AM. I called his office Friday morning and he kindly saw me for an appointment that same morning. They took x-rays in his office, and then Dr. Davis performed surgery on me that same afternoon. He did an awesome job and I was able to leave for my previously scheduled vacation on Saturday morning. I couldn't have asked for a better process. I highly recommend Dr. Davis for any orthopedic procedure. If I ever break another bone in my body, I'm calling Dr. Davis.
