Gloria Bloodworth – Patient Story

Patient stories: Gloria B. - Dr. Blake Boyett patient | The Orthopaedic Center | Athens, AL
“Dr. Boyett and his team were so kind. They really took the time to listen to my concerns about my injury.”

I was living just my normal everyday life until I took an unfortunate stumble. As a result of my fall, I injured my neck, back and hip. This injury resulted in me having excruciating neck and back pain, along with pain in my hip.

After my accident, I scheduled an appointment at The Orthopaedic Center to see Dr. Blake Boyett, TOC’s spine surgeon in Athens, AL. My visit at TOC was wonderful! Dr. Boyett and his team were so kind. They really took the time to listen to my concerns about my injury.

I was in such relief when Dr. Blake was able to determine what was needed for my treatment plan to help me with my pain. He ended up performing a cervical spinal surgery. After the surgery and quickly going into recovery, I was very impressed with the results. Throughout my treatment with TOC, Dr. Blake took such great care of me. He really helped me get back to my everyday life. 

I am so thankful for TOC and their wonderful staff and doctors. The have been so kind, and it is nice to have a group of doctors who truly listen and help you understand the cause of your pain and to treat it as well. My tip to anyone who may suffer with neck or back pain would be to call TOC and schedule an appointment!
