"I have found Dr. Hardage to be very knowledgeable. Also, he listens to everything I have to say, a rare trait these days. I shall continue to have him as my diagnosis and treatment doctor for as long as he will have me as a patient. Also, I have been treated by all the other EOOC doctors with names beginning with the letter B. All have been very professional also. All in all, a very good group of physicians." – Beatrice R.

"Excellent care." – Barbara M.

"He told me what was going to happen and how it was going to be, and it was.

He is easy to talk to and made it a point to see that my daughter who was with me at the hospital knew when the operation was over
and how it went and what to expect, she was very impressed.

And I am doing well with my new hip, could not ask for any more." – Jimmie C.

"The personal attention from Dr. Hardage and his entire staff was second to none!" – Terry J.

"Great doctor and staff!!!" – Eddie M.

"Wonderful experience. Good care, good people, excellent doctor, listened to me, advised me, helped me greatly." – Mary G.

"Dr. Emel was very professional, straightforward and kind - with a sense of humor. He was always on time and thorough. He determined what was the best course for recovery - and set a plan in motion - and it worked perfectly. I would recommend him highly." – Toni S.

"I was patient number three with EOOC when James White operated on my knee in 1968. The same knee needed to be replaced in April of 2016. I have nothing but good things to say about EOOC. In addition to Dr. Christopher Browne who did my total knee replacement, Dr. Brad Boone, Dr. Ryan Pitts and Dr. George Mauerman have treated me. They all are consummate professionals and Tulsa is lucky to have them." – Bruce W.

"I lived in back pain that was gradually getting more severe for 20 years. During a visit to EOOC for another issue I asked my doctor who he would recommend for a back issue, he said Dr. Ahmadinia. When I checked out that day I made an appointment to see Dr. A. It was very easy to get in quickly. After my first appointment with Dr. A, I was so impressed with his bedside manner and how quickly he evaluated my problem. Less that 3 months later I had surgery on my L5/S1 with bone fusion. 4 weeks later I was back to work. It has been just over 6 months and I am totally pain-free. Thank you so much for giving me my life back Dr. A!!!" – Linda

"I just want to say thank you to Dr. Kunapuli. In my opinion, he is the best Orthopedic Surgeon I have ever met. And I have met a few. I was in so much pain with my knees I could barely walk. I finally got a referral to Eastern Oklahoma Orthopedic Center from my primary care  doctor, so I could have my knees looked at. When I called the EOOC I didn't know any of the surgeons there so I asked the lady on the phone to recommend me one of their best. She recommended Dr. Kunapuli. After meeting with him and reviewing my X-rays, I knew I needed knee replacement surgery on both knees. I knew after our first meeting, he was the Surgeon for me. We started with the left (the worst) knee first, in March 2016. By May I was ready for my right knee replacement and had it done by the end of May 2016. It's a miracle! I kid you not. It's now July 8th, 2016 and my knees work like they did years ago. Without pain! Thank you, Dr. Kunapuli! You literally gave me my life back." – Karin K.
