SHC Patient, Nov 2015

Not in a rush and took his time explaining everything. I never felt like he needed to get to his next pt. or was rushing.

SHC Patient, Nov 2015

To date i am quite satisfied with my treatment and recovery.

SHC Patient, Oct 2015

Dr. J. Bishop is an excellent doctor

SHC Patient, Oct 2015

I am quite disappointed with Stanford

SHC Patient, Sep 2015

Always outstanding in every way!

SHC Patient, Jun 2015

Dr. Bishop took over my care following a motorcycle accident in which I sustained a compound tib/fib fracture that evolved into a non-union situation. He tried many different approches including several intermedulary nails and other supports on the surface of the bone. Along the way I experienced a staph infection followed by a c-diff infection. It took over a year and a half before the bone showed signs of healing. During this time I could not walk without assistance form crutches or a knee scooter. About 2 yeaars in, I began to walk more or less normally. Finally, it became necessary to remove all hardware which Dr. Bishop did about a month ago. I now fell nearly normal. I applaud Dr. Bishop for his skill and willingness to try whateve it took to make progress. While it was a long ordeal, I cannot imagine getting better care and am greatful for the results.

SHC Patient, May 2015

Dr. or staff could do better at helping trauma patients like myself have a more specific plan for decreasing pain meds. Have had to structure that on my own w/very little help for drs. staff.

SHC Patient, Apr 2015

I have only had one appointment with Dr. Bishop thus far so it may be too soon to have an accurate judgment of him.

SHC Patient, Mar 2015

Dr. Bishop spent a lot of time with us going over options and solutions. Dr. Bishop is GREAT.

SHC Patient, Feb 2015

Superb operation, care & result, Dr. Bishop is a big star.

SHC Patient, Feb 2015

Outstanding service.

SHC Patient, Jan 2015

Rock star.
