“I had a total knee replacement a few years ago and still go to see Dr. Brooks at Blue Ridge Bone and Joint every two months for cortisone shots. Dr. Werner Brooks is very caring and proficient, never in too big of a hurry to visit a little while, as he administers my needed shots in both knees. The entire staff are all very professional, with caring professional skills.”

“Dr. Brooks and the entire staff at the Blue Ridge Division of EmergeOrtho provided outstanding care from start to finish. After sustaining a serious shoulder injury the attentive care and concern was evident from the beginning. I was able to be seen the next day without an appointment, had my MRI scheduled the following day, and had surgery performed by Dr. Brooks just 4 days after my injury occurred. The follow-up care was just as excellent and I was informed about every step of the recovery and rehabilitation process. Additionally, I cannot say enough good things about the intensive Physical Therapy I received from EmergeOrtho. Scott, Danielle, Sage and the entire PT staff were outstanding and key to my successful, speedy recovery. Highly recommend EmergeOrtho!”
– James P.

– Diane P.
“The first day I met Dr. Brooks, with a ruptured quad and PCL and 12 days after the injury, he drew out on paper the technique he was going to use to repair the damage. He was the 'second opinion' who completely smoked the 'first opinion.' I asked him to schedule me for surgery. Even though it was a 'day surgery' when I came too I was in no shape to be moved and by phone Dr. Brooks admitted me to hospital, where I had excellent care throughout the night. I left the next day and my recovery has been steady. Knee surgery at 68 has a serious "bounce back" attribute but Dr. Brooks gave me the advantage of his skills to get past this life changing event. You could not get a better surgeon.”
– Joey O.
“Dr. Brooks is wonderful. We drive one hour to see him.”
– John M.
“I was referred to Dr. Brooks in by my family doctor who was unable to determine what was causing the severe pain in my right leg. During my first visit with him, Dr. Brooks diagnosed the pain in my leg as being caused by compartment syndrome and explained what it was and treatments I could try to ease the pain (this was several weeks after the ultrasound tech at the local hospital told me there was nothing wrong with my leg and I was wasting his time and hospital resources having the ultrasound done). Whenever I have an appointment with him (and I have had many), Dr. Brooks always greets me with a smile and a friendly hello and then proceeds to take the time to explain my ailment, its causes and treatment options. If I were to need any type of joint replacement or surgery, he is the doctor I trust to do it. I have also met others who are his patients and l have commented that they would go to no one else.”
– Joanne M.
“I have had one surgical procedure with Dr. Brooks and was quite pleased, not only with the results, but also with the care and attention I received from him. At no time did I feel to be just a "number," but felt he genuinely cared about my overall well-being. Although my surgery was almost a year ago, when I recently experienced another shoulder problem, I was able to schedule an immediate appointment with Dr. Brooks. X-rays were taken, which he explained to me, and recommended non-surgical treatment for my concern.”
– Rhoda S.
“Dr. Brooks has done both of my knees and so far I am satisfied with him and his handiwork.”

“He took his time with me. His suggestion was helpful.”
