“As a Workers’ Compensation adjuster, it is extremely difficult to find good, quality providers to handle WC claims. I have been working with Rome Orthopaedic Center for almost two years and they are definitely one of my favorite practices. They make my job so much easier and I am truly thankful to have such a quality provider. Whenever an orthopaedic referral is needed for a patient, Rome Ortho is always at the top of my list. The doctors do a good job of treating the patients and the WC Coordinator, Gwen, does a fabulous job taking care of everything. Whenever PT or diagnostic studies are needed, she will immediately call or email me for authorization so that there is no lapse in treatment. She gladly uses our preferred vendors for PT or diagnostic studies. Rome Ortho sends me the work status reports within 24 hours with an update of that visit. If the associate misses the appointment for any reason, I know I can expect a fax stating that there was an appointment and the reason for the missed appointment. If I could clone Rome Ortho, I would put them in every city. If you try them just once, you will be hooked (and possibly spoiled) by their exceptional services.”
