Patient’s provide their testimony about how the providers at Allied Bone and Joint were able to get their Life in Motion!


“I appreciated the kindness and tender feelings by all concerned.  Dr. Akre explained everything about my condition (fracture) and got x-rays. I am not back to “Life in Motion” yet, but feel confident that I will.”  – Marilyn R.


“Having a 3 year old with a broken arm is a recipe for disaster.  Dr. Akre, Cheryl and Rob all helped up feel at ease, worked through our son’s tears and fears and didn’t blink twice when he asked for a waterproof cast.  Our active boy has kept in life in motion, constant motion- thanks to the team at Allied Bone and Joint.  Thank you!  – Evan, Claire and Reagan W.


“This is the best I have felt in 3-4 years. Thank you Dr. Akre” – Sandra C


“Dr. Akre, Dr. Kline, Cheryl and the X-Ray Tech are all super nice and very caring. They kept me well informed about what they were going to do.” -Karen W.


“Dr. McClain – I’m thrilled with the outcome of my knee replacement you preformed. From the initial diagnosis, pre-op, joint camp, surgery, to therapy and recovery, I was totally informed of what to expect and what was expected of me for a full recovery.  My therapy period took half the time anticipated. I truly believe a positive attitude and the confidence I had in you and your staff helped me to a speedy and successful recovery. -Linda K


“I couldn’t be more proud to be a patient of Dr. Kline (and his staff).  He gave me the confidence I needed to have the surgery on my toe/foot.  This was my 1st surgery, and all went fantastic! Dr. Kline is very caring and very personable.  I can’t thank you enough for everything that you have done for me.  Lots of thanks!  -Dawn C


“I have seen Cheryl, Dr. Kline and Dr. Akre and they have all been wonderful. Dr. Kline and Dr. Akre have both done surgeries for me and I never had problems post-op.  Cheryl always takes me seriously and has an outstanding personality.  In fact, everyone in that office does, down to the receptionists.  I wouldn’t go anywhere else for my orthopedic issues!” -Betty T. 


 “In Oct. 2012, I hurt my left shoulder while painting my kitchen ceiling. It continued to get worse so I saw a specialist and he offered me cortisone shots and I refused them.  In January 2015 I had an MRI done and saw a different surgeon who told me that I had a torn rotator cuff and bone spurs.  He told me he could repair it but it was afraid he might make it worse and he thought I needed a replacement and he didn’t do those and that I should see an orthopedic surgeon.

A Facebook friend posted a picture of her shoulder where she had it repaired. It looked really good.  I asked her who did the surgery and she said Dr. Richard McClain did it at Plymouth Hospital. I got his number, set-up an appointment.  He looked at my MRI, did a few X-Rays, told me I would need a replacement, explained the procedure to me and told me to think about it.  I told him right then and there to go ahead and set me up for the surgery.

I had surgery Oct. 26th, was in the hospital overnight and went home the next day.  I hardly had any pain or took many prescription meds.  Mostly Tylenol or Advil.  My scar healed nicely.

I would highly recommend Dr. McClain. Had I known he had an office in Plymouth and did surgery here also, I would have gone to him sooner.  Great surgeon.” -Marilyn R.


“I suffered with knee pain for several years and after numerous, unsuccessful attempts to alleviate the pain, I was referred to Dr. Akre by my friends. Dr. Akre took the time to listen and spend time with me.  He is caring, generous and HONEST, I appreciated his personality.  I now refer him to my friends and am a brand new person.  Dr. Akre got MY Life in Motion.”  -Tracey B.


“Dr. Akre did a beautiful, wonderful, excellent job on my hip! No pain, no problems!” –Bernice I.


I was experiencing a lot of pain in my hip and when I saw Dr. Akre, he was very caring and genuinely concerned. He did a hip replacement on me and even prayed with me prior to surgery which I appreciated as that is important to me.  Even the staff at the hospital were complimentary of him.  Six weeks after the surgery I was up and moving around.  I keep going back for other orthopedic needs and refer others to him so they can too get their Life in Motion. –Bonnie H.
