“Dr. Ledington & the entire staff at NAO were phenomenal. Dr. Ledington’s conservative approach & calming demeanor were just what I was looking for. I never felt rushed. He really listened to me & the techs & assistants that work around him were so professional, friendly & efficient. They made a nervous patient feel much less anxious about my procedure & showed me so much care & concern. I can’t say enough nice things about this practice. I’ve been dealing w/ chronic pain/nerve issues for years and within days of seeing Dr. Ledington, I felt like a new woman. I did a lot of research regarding specialists here in Arizona and I truly think that best orthopedic surgeons are located at NAO. Their excellent reputation is well deserved.” – Anonymous
