About

Personal Statment

We’re all part of one big team, essentially, and that includes all of our athletic trainers who staff all of the local high schools. We know each other very well, and we trust each other a lot. That helps us provide the best care we can.

I take care of all types of patients, from 8 all the way up to 95, and I treat them like I want to be treated. I think everyone has an athlete within them, and we just need to bring that out.

    Travis Johnson

    Back on the Mat

    Travis Johnson didn’t mention his shoulder pain to his trainers. The freshman cheerleader didn’t think the pain was a big deal. But when his shoulder fully dislocated during practice, he ended up in so much pain that he couldn’t sleep. The next day he went to UK HealthCare’s Orthopaedic Surgery & Sports Medicine clinic, where it was revealed he would need surgery to repair it. Travis missed the rest of the season but stayed committed to getting back on the mat. Now he’s back at full strength with no intention of slowing down.

      I HAVE NOT HAD A BAD EXPERIENCE WITH UK HEALTH CARE
    • Patient Review

      I have no complaints about the doctor or PA. She was going to schedule me for an injection to help with my muscle that is causing my pain. I just really wish that it could have been done that day at the same appointment. I've been in such bad pain for so long I'm ready to get relief. The surgery that I had helped part of the nerve issues that I had but have remaining nerve and pain issues that affect me on a daily basis. Anything that could have been done the day I visited would have been wonderful.

      Only small issue was that direct care was provided by a fellow (?) under Dr. Kaiser's guidance. That was fine with me, but I was not asked or given the option of having the procedure performed by Dr. Kaiser
