Testimonials for Timothy B. Alton, M.D.

We take great pride in providing outstanding customer service and helping all patients return to active and healthy lifestyles. Our orthopedic surgeons combine compassion with expert orthopedic care, building relationships with patients while relieving pain and increasing mobility and quality of life. Read what some of our past patients have to say about the Proliance Orthopedic Associates team.

Dr. Alton is great!  He takes time to talk to you and find out what is wrong and works hard to find a solution to your problem.  He is friendly and actually works on you himself.  I currently am a patient and I have been extremely satisfied.  I look forward to his solving my medical problem with my knee.


I had bilateral knee replacements with Dr. Huang years ago and it went great!  So when I broke my knee recently, I went straight back to Dr. Huang at Proliance Orthopedic Associates.  Dr. Huang informed me that I would need a revision surgery on my knee and recommended Dr. Alton.  I won the lottery with Dr. Alton.  He did a great job on my surgery, I am now able to get back to my active lifestyle and career, as well as cross my legs, which I was not able to do before.  The surgery was easy and I was only on pain medication for 9 days.  When I left the hospital, I already had a wide range of motion.  The Joint Center was great, the nursing staff was amazing.  The nursing staff even switched their schedules around so that I could have the same nurse that I did for my bilateral knee replacements years ago which made me feel very comfortable.  I highly recommend Dr. Alton at Proliance Orthopedic Associates.


Now this is a physician I’d recommend to my friends! I initially saw Dr. Alton at that end of November for a very painful left hip, saw him again yesterday after six sessions of P.T. for follow up and cortisone shot. I am very happy with how comfortable both he, and nurse Leah had me feeling during my appointment and especially liked how he looked me right in the eye as he was addressing me.


I had my right hip replaced 7 weeks ago with Dr. Alton and I am very pleased. I came to see Dr. Alton at Proliance Orthopedic Associates because my right hip kept dislocating and it was extremely painful. My hip dislocated 4 times in 8 months, and even when it wasn’t dislocated, it always felt loose.  Due to the loose feeling in my hip, I started walking funny which created even more pain. I was so happy when I found Dr. Alton, he explained everything that was going to happen and answered all of my questions. He has a great bedside manner, and is very easy to talk to. He made me feel comfortable and at ease throughout the whole process.  If I ever have any other issues with my hip, Dr. Alton will be the first person I come to, and I’ve already recommended him to others.  Dr. Alton is such a pleasure to work with, and I’m glad that I found him as my doctor.


Five years ago I had my right knee replaced by Dr. Barrett. When my left knee started going out, I knew I needed to make another appointment at Proliance Orthopedic Associates to see. Dr. Barrett.  My first appointment was with PA-C Jana Flener, who recommended Dr. Alton for my left knee replacement. After talking with Jana about my severe knee pain, I made an appointment with Dr. Alton.  Dr. Alton and his staff were great! He did the knee replacement on my left knee a year ago and I have no complaints. The pain is gone, I have full range of motion, and I’m back to living my life to the fullest. I am very pleased with the experience I had with Dr. Alton, he was personable and made sure all my questions were answered, and that I was comfortable through the whole process. I recommend Dr. Alton to anyone who needs a knee replacement.  I am a very happy patient.
