Reviews

"Outstanding, Dr Hudgens is one of the best doctors I have ever seen. He explained very well why my knees were hurting so bad. Discussed short term and long term options we have to help. The shots he gave me in each knee gave me instant relief and have felt great over the past week. Dr Hudgens is very professional and gets to know people and what they do in life to help understand best options. Also the staff at Alabama Orthopedics are all very helpful. Thank You"
