Featured Reviews



We absolutely love Dr Lovria. I broke my ankle last spring and he made a difficult situation so much easier to handle. He addressed my husband's ortho concerns quickly and efficiently, after a great deal of frustration with other providers who did not listen. He has been consistently approachable and professional, and has excellent instincts. We appreciate everything he's done for us over this past year.

was seen on time. Dr explained everything in detail and in a manner that a non-medical person could understand. Answered all of my questions. Very happy with his professionalism and abilities.

Dr. Lovria did my knee replacement a couple of months ago. To say that he has given me back my quality of life is an understatement!!! Dr. Lovria is nothing short of a phenomenal surgeon. From his bedside manner, expertise and overall care that he provides I highly recommend him to take care of all of your orthopedic procedures. Best orthopedic surgeon in Central Texas!!!

Dr. Lovria performed my knee replacement a couple of years ago and honestly he is the best Dr. I have ever had. He takes his time to explain things in terms you will understand, he is very kind and professional. I won't go to anyone else.

Dr. Lovria listened when no one else would. He performed knee replacement surgery on me July 2023. He explained the whole process, was extremely kind and genuinely seemed to care. I highly recommend him and his staff. Mary Caldwell, Palmer is maiden name.
