I saw Dr. Graves to plan shoulder surgery that had been postponed. After some simple tests of strength and range of motion, he said no surgery was needed; what a relief! And to have a doctor tell a patient that a re-scheduled procedure isn't necessary seems unusual, but it was welcome.


Dr. Graves was thorough with his exam. He made sure that I understood what my diagnosis was and what my plan of care was going to be.


Dr. Graves is very funny and comforting. He knows how to handle someone in pain to assess you not hurt you. He treated my injury after the x-rays came back. I will see him in four weeks if there is no change or it gets worse. I find him to be delightful.


*Dr. Graves gave me back a normal life after failed surgeries in Statesville, NC. I recommend him to ANYONE! He is awesome! Just ask my family.




Dr Graves took the time to explain everything prior to surgery. Post surgery appointment he reviewed the films and discussed in detail every step of the procedure. I am very satisfied with Dr Graves work. He is a wonderful person and a thorough, skillful and knowledgeble surgeon.


Doctor Graves was outstanding. I would recommend him and his team


absolutely would recommend


Dr Graves was informative and listened to my concerns. He answered all questions I asked and was actively listening to me.


I would recommend him to not only family member but any person.


Dr. B Graves is a great doctor concerning my health, and if it's something he doesn't know he refers me to another good provider that can get to the bottom of the problem.


I have recommended Dr. Graves.


Dr Graves is the best! I am very impressed with his skill and his bedside manner is top notch!


Better that can be expected the care in the time that was spent with me


I have been seeing Dr Graves for several years now. He is undoubtedly the best All around physician I have ever dealt with. I am a retired nurse so for me to say this means a lot. He is an awesome person, surgeon and really enjoys his profession. He has the Best bedside manner that I have ever seen. I hope I don't have to use his services anytime soon but will not have any worries if I do. I can't say enough about this Wonderful Physician!!

*Dr. Graves is excellent doctor with too heavy of a case load. Wonderful bedside manner.


I have recommended Dr. Graves and so has my physical therapist John Beasley.


Dr Graves went over my surgery in excellent detail, helping me understand what to expect and the length of the recovery time. I found the explanation reassuring and it helped me develop realistic expectations concerning my progress.


I absolutely trust Dr. Graves with any of my needs! He did my surgery and I hugged his neck at the last visit. Out of pain!! I recommend him highly!!! So glad I did the research to see which doctor I wanted to handle my problem. The doctor in Statesville did surgery in January 2017 and it was a failed surgery. 7 months later Dr. Graves did a shoulder replacement and took care of everything!!


Dr. Graves is a very caring doctor. He made me feel at ease about my surgery. I had no question about him taking care of my needs.


Dr Graves never rushes me he always listens to what I have to say.


he had not read my complex medical history and then laughed when I told him I had an infected joint replacement. wouldn't recommend him to absolutely anyone.


Nothing bad at all.. Very good experience..


I had been dismissed by other surgeons prior to meeting with Dr. Graves and was told I had simply developed a pain syndrome. Dr. Graves took my pain very seriously and ended up finding a severe injury that had been missed by the other doctors. I appreciate that he is attuned to how important it is to me to be able to be active and is dedicated to helping be reach a full recovery and return to sports and hobbies as quickly as possible.


Awesome provider.


*Dr. Graves has excellent bed side manner.


Dr. Graves is a great physician and did an amazing job with my surgery! I will definitely recommend him to my family and friends!
