I saw Dr Locker for a knee injury. I work in a hospital, however, chose to go outside of my own facility as I felt Dr Locker and the Ocala Orthopedic Institute were better suited to my needs. EVERY single person I encountered from scheduling my first appointment to pre -op and complement of treatment were extraordinarily kind, friendly , professional and did things in a timely manner. Not only is the office building beautiful, I was very impressed with the surgery center. I will not even consider going to any other orthopedic provider.

I meet with Dr. Locker yesterday for a torn meniscus. He looked at test results and suggested other options before surgery, . . . and surgery is how he makes his living. He was interested in my problem, listened to me and made suggestions. I really liked him and would recommend him.

Seniors: Beware of TOI's new Medicare payment initiative. My wife and I have had excellent joint replacement surgery from Dr Locker and Dr VanDeleur. They are superb Surgeons. Yesterday while scheduling another surgery I was told that TOI now requires any/all Medicare patients ( including those who PAY for Supplemental F coverage) to participate in an CMS Caseworker initiative ominously called "BPCI- Bundled Payments For Care Improvement Advanced". And its a "take it or leave TOI" dictate.

Dr Locker botched my right hip replacement by inserting the wrong prosthesis at a wrong angle. He admitted a bad decision. It dislocated, and I had to have it repaired 3 weeks later; plus repair to my femur, which he broke. Friendly man, likely a good surgeon -- but I have permanent damage and cannot walk well.

Dr. Locker and his team were great with my left hip replacement. They were able to fit my surgery in way ahead of the expected time. I'm grateful for that. He was friendly and answered all of my questions. His team was helpful. I'm grateful!
Business Response:

Dear Butch: On behalf of Dr. Locker and staff, thank you for your feedback! We are happy to hear your left hip replacement was a success. And we hope you can get back to the things you love doing with your new hip! Sincerely, Team TOI

Good people skills. A little on the busy side which means a wait time. The doctor was very attentive and took care of my concerns.

I was in excruciating pain. Knee issues. I called Dr. Locker and got an appointment quickly and into surgery days later. The staff were very friendly. The facilities very clean. Dr. Locker was terrific and my Recovery has been speedy indeed. Dr. Locker has also done full hip replacements on my husband and half dozen friends. Everyone had terrific experiences and healed quickly and with no complications. Thank you, Dr Locker!!

Wonderful and skilled physician. The success of my hip replacement has been a recommendation to all my friends. Several have asked who was my doctor.
