In the words of his patients…

I am very happy with my overall experience!

I visited Dr. McCulloch’s office twice within the last week after injuring my shoulder during a climbing accident. He and his entire team are super-friendly and very well organized - despite a full waiting room, I was seen within minutes after my arrival. Consultation was very thorough, and Dr. McCulloch patiently answered all my questions (even though I had a lot) and provided helpful tips that went beyond mere treatment (adjusting my exercise/everyday routine) to speed up the healing process. I am very happy with my overall experience!

A tremendous track record.

Dr. McCulloch is one of the best! Great bedside manner took all the time I needed to make me understand everything that needed to be treated. Great results. Great with documentation and one of the best staff I’ve ever dealt with. Courteous, friendly, and professional. I have and will continue to recommend him to anyone needing help with orthopedic issues. I’ve already referred many people to him, ALL have been thrilled with his performance. That’s a tremendous track record. I wouldn’t have anyone else treat me or my family. Thanks Doc! Don’t know what I would have done without you.

I highly recommend him!

Dr. McCulloch was extremely polite, patient, and thorough. I had seen another doctor previously regarding the same injury, and after seeing Dr. McCulloch, I’ve switched my care to him. I highly recommend him!! He walked me through the details of the injury extensively and answered questions patiently.
