"Dr. Kidder fantastic. He has treated my nine-year-old daughter twice due to different injuries. Her first injury was difficult to determine. He was thorough and we chose to go to him for the treatment when a MRI determined stress fractures in her foot. The second injury was two years later to the same foot. He remembered my daughter and was cautious in treating the same foot. He listens to the patient and is very personable!" -- Addison
"I had broken the elbow on a Saturday, went to Mobile Infirmary Emergency Room for a temporary cast, then saw Dr. Kidder the following Monday. He was very nice and considerate to set my elbow so quickly and explained the break and its ramifications quite explicitly. When he removed the cast he referred me for therapy at The Orthopaedic Group Therapy Center on Airport Blvd where Crystal has to be the absolutely most considerate and knowledgeable therapist I've ever met! She listens, responds, and makes me feel that I am making progress on schedule. I am grateful for the excellent care offered both by Dr. Kidder and by Crystal!" -- Martha H.
"Dr Kidder and his staff were very easy to work with, did an excellent "repair" job, always returned calls, answered questions honestly and promptly, and were genuinely concerned with my well-being and health. First class service!" -- Patrick M.
"Excellent staff, attention, and treatment. There is always a prompt telephone reply for my questions, issues, or schedule changes. Super repair job to a "multiple fractured" clavicle. I am still in the healing process with a lot of added hardware to my body, but good progress continues. I can not say enough good things about Dr. Kidder and the staff (Jenny Dimitrous is Great! as is the rest of the staff from the reception desk, to those that handle insurance issues....all). Everyone is great and easy to work with also." -- Patrick M.
"Wonderful experience. Dr Kidder was very thorough and eager to explain his plan of care. I was very satisfied with my care." -- Aisha L.
"My son had surgery at The Orthopaedic Group, P.C., two years before so when my fall from a broken ladder happened I knew where we would have the surgery. Dr. Kidder was very informative about the surgery and the recovery. Thanks to him I have full mobility in my left shoulder after tearing my rotator cuff front and back tendons. The Orthopaedic Group, P.C., is the only place I would go for surgery of this kind. THANKS AGAIN!" -- Clyde B.
