Doctor seemed to be wondering why our primary care physician request a referral. So, it may be the primary care physician didn't do due dillagence.

He has been very professional and caring. Dr. Davey has answered all questions. He has been the best

OU Physicians Patient Aug 24, 2020

They took x rays even though he already had them done. And they had us waiting for 2 hours and then take x rays and within ten minutes tell us they don't see anything. Pointless waste of my day from 10:15 am - 1:00pm.

OU Physicians Patient Aug 24, 2020

Dr. Davey has treated two of our girls. Both have had a positive experience working with him.

Our family is grateful for everything he has done.

OU Physicians Patient Jan 27, 2020


OU Physicians Patient Jan 24, 2020

Dr. Davey was an amazing phycisian from our first encounter in the ER to extremely promptly getting his surgery team ready to after care the next day bright and early. Follow up visits were prompt and also great at letting us know where our child was at during his recovery.

OU Physicians Patient Jan 10, 2020

Dr. Davey is very thorough. He explains things in detail and is great with kids.

OU Physicians Patient Dec 16, 2019

The Resident should read patients chart and History before seeing a patient to know about the patient before entering the room.

OU Physicians Patient Dec 16, 2019

Very good and respectful

OU Physicians Patient Dec 2, 2019

I think Dr. Davey is a wonderful Dr. And very informative.

OU Physicians Patient Oct 25, 2019

OU Physicians Patient Oct 11, 2019

He was patient and I didn't feel rushed.

OU Physicians Patient Sep 30, 2019

When we got there . we were there in time for the appointment. But we were waiting in the waiting room and peoples keep coming. And they weren't calling on us they were just calling on other people's we wait a hour before we got see. They keep tell us. We were the next but they keep calling on other people's. That was the only problem but the doctor did good in are visit. And answer all are questions. I was happy with the visit. Thank you

OU Physicians Patient Sep 30, 2019

Terrible experience involving the nurse. Were told that the apptmt had been cancelled (although we were never notified), but she would "squeeze us in"...meaning we had a 3pm apptmt, but had to wait an hour and a half to see the doctor because she squeezed us in at the end, which put us in a rush to visit with him because we had to be back in time to pick up our son from school. No apologies or communication from the nurse. Only excuses and cover-ups. No respect for our time at all.

OU Physicians Patient Sep 23, 2019

I'm not sure I completely agree with the doctor's recommendation. I will probably seek a second opinion.

OU Physicians Patient Sep 23, 2019

Having a child with clubfoot was/is a nerve wracking experience. Dr.Davey has been very thorough and very patient answering all of our questions and concerns. My child's feet look incredible and we are so thankful.

OU Physicians Patient Sep 16, 2019

He is a good doctor.

OU Physicians Patient Sep 9, 2019

He is a knowledgeable person

OU Physicians Patient Sep 6, 2019

We are very pleased with the care our daughter has received, he has been very detailed explaining her diagnosis, treatment, and everything.

OU Physicians Patient Aug 26, 2019

This visit took 2 hours. Most of the time, we were waiting in the exam room. This amount of wait time seemed excessive. Everything else was great.

OU Physicians Patient Aug 23, 2019

I love how calm Dr. Davey is. His demeanor is very reassuring.

OU Physicians Patient Aug 9, 2019

We had a very long wait time. Our appointment was at 10:45 and we left there at 12:50. A little frustrating, but I understand if emergencies come up. The doctors were great when they came in.

OU Physicians Patient Aug 5, 2019

Very informative,professional and friendly!!

OU Physicians Patient Jul 29, 2019

They were very helpful, informative, and professional. Thank you!

OU Physicians Patient Jul 22, 2019

His intern was very condescending toward us. I get his wasn't a massive injury but he made us feel like we were wasting his time.

OU Physicians Patient Jul 22, 2019

Great care and wonderful education

OU Physicians Patient Jul 1, 2019

My teenage son has severe anxiety issues and taking him to any doctor's office is difficult. But as soon as Dr. Davey came in and began speaking, his kindness, knowledge, and calm demeanor put my son at ease. He told me afterwards that this was the best Dr. visit he had ever had. My son went from uncontrollable shaking before the doctor entered the room to complete calm and even smiling by the time he left the room. You would have to know my son to understand how incredible that is. Dr. Davey is wonderful.

OU Physicians Patient Jun 28, 2019

Our appointmenys have been flawless. We have had two appointments and not only do we get seen within 15 minutes of checking in, once we are in the room we are seen by the nurse within 5 minutes and not long after by the doctor. They are super thorough, caring and unformative but their care with my son was amazing.

OU Physicians Patient Jun 24, 2019

Dr. Davey is very helpful in answering any questions or explanations of medical information. The nurse staff is awesome and friendly.

OU Physicians Patient Jun 24, 2019

OU Physicians Patient May 13, 2019

OU Physicians Patient May 10, 2019

We have been seeing Joseph Davey for 7 years now. Always does an excellent job. Sometime we have to wait a while at our appointment, but we understand there can be unknown emergency's that come about. Fantastic doctor. We will continue to go to him until we can't anymore.

OU Physicians Patient Apr 29, 2019

Dr. Davey is the best

OU Physicians Patient Apr 29, 2019

Wait time was ridiculous. We were in an actual room to see dr and we waited for an hour and a half.

OU Physicians Patient Apr 29, 2019

Wonderful Doctor and we are so very grateful he is over seeing the care of our granddaughter.

OU Physicians Patient Apr 29, 2019

I wish he would have done a x-ray to reassure me

OU Physicians Patient Mar 25, 2019

He strives for perfection.

OU Physicians Patient Mar 18, 2019

Wonderful facility and even better healthcare. Our doctor positively changed our sons life forever.

OU Physicians Patient Mar 15, 2019

Dr Davey is a very smart and polite person who is able to Express things in a manner that anyone can understand, hes is also very specific about any treatments and what outcome can be expected.

OU Physicians Patient Feb 11, 2019

Our appointment was at 2:30 pm. We arrived on time and the dr. Did not come on until a little after 4 pm. The nurse apologized, but I noted people that arrived after us leave before we were seen.

OU Physicians Patient Feb 11, 2019

He was informative and made sure we knew how our girl was going to be through out her surgery and what to expect

OU Physicians Patient Feb 11, 2019

He really helped us alleviate any anxiety regarding my daughter

OU Physicians Patient Jan 11, 2019

Dr Davey left us with the confidence to make a good decision for our child's medical treatment. It was a comfort when we were hopeless. He is an amazing doctor, and we are glad he is part of our journey.

OU Physicians Patient Jan 7, 2019

OU Ortho Peds came as a recommendation from a friend of mine. I work for Integris but with what she mentioned about how satisfied she was with this clinic, I chose OU. I would definitely recommend this clinic.

OU Physicians Patient Dec 27, 2018

Dr Joseph Davey has always treated us with care and concern for our little one. He seems very confident and educated.

OU Physicians Patient Dec 14, 2018

Dr. Davey is amazing with my son and a very competent surgeon.

OU Physicians Patient Nov 19, 2018

this visit was a complete waste of our time

OU Physicians Patient Nov 19, 2018

Dr. Davey is a wonderful doctor! He was extremely nice and kind! He explained the x-ray results to me and showed me the x-ray results. He was very professional and polite. Easy to talk to and very kind to my son.

OU Physicians Patient Oct 26, 2018

Excellent provider and clinic. Everyone is extremely courteous and helpful. They always answer any questions and discuss any concerns I may have about my daughter's condition. I will highly recommend this provider.

OU Physicians Patient Sep 17, 2018

Dr. Joseph Davey has been my daughter's doctor since birth. We appreciate all the concern and help he has given and still continues to give.

OU Physicians Patient Sep 10, 2018

We saw Dr Davey for a specific issue. He is not our regular physician. We have seen him twice now and I really like his style. He has both times taken us into the xray room so we can view the xrays ourselves, and shown us what he is seeing - and been very helpful when we ask questions. Really like him.

OU Physicians Patient Sep 7, 2018

Even with the long wait time, we are extremely pleased with Dr. Davey!

OU Physicians Patient Aug 13, 2018

Dr Davey was very nice and confident that he can help my baby. He's the first doctor to actually xray her legs and confirm that they are definitely different lengths in bone. we will be coming to see him again! Hopefully he will be able to help my baby with this!

OU Physicians Patient Jun 11, 2018

good experience

OU Physicians Patient May 25, 2018

I think Dr. Davey is a good surgeon. My son has not had any problems with his broken hip since his surgery. He seems ok at prior follow-up office visits. The wait time for him is ridiculous! We have waited for hours every time we have came in. I understand it happening once or even twice, things happen/emergencies arise. Our time is valuable but I feel it is being wasted waiting in a room for hours once to be seen by the doctor for 5 minutes.

OU Physicians Patient Apr 16, 2018

My son loved the provider, I have never seen him hug any of his physicians before. He was very nice, polite, educated, and very concerned about my son. Thank you so much for the excellent care

OU Physicians Patient Apr 2, 2018

This Provider had very poor beside manner. His tone and choice of words concerning my child's condition were very harsh. He spoke negatively of many things about my child in which we were not even there for him to exam (example: his weight). He never took into consideration what my spouse and I were sharing with him as far as the history of our child or the progress we are seeing. He discredited the treatments we shared we have tried (and have seen improvement with) and treated us as if we knew nothing. I will not bring my child back to this Provider and will not recommend him to others.

OU Physicians Patient Apr 2, 2018

physical therapist, wound care and orthopedic staff were all great

OU Physicians Patient Apr 2, 2018

With the concerns I have about my son, I believe we could have spent a little more time discussing and him examining my son.

OU Physicians Patient Mar 26, 2018

Dr. Davey has been amazing from day one. He has been a life saver! I recommend him to everyone that I think can benefit from his services. He deserves his own wing at OU Medical!

OU Physicians Patient Feb 5, 2018

Dr. Davey was very clear and asked multiple times if we had questions while we were there. Top notch.

OU Physicians Patient Jan 5, 2018

The staff asked me to bring my medical records for the Dr. to look over, (2 xrays), and when we were seen by the Dr., he didn't know there was even 2 xrays to look at. I just feel like he didn't really listen to my concerns as a mother. He did not have a great bed side manner with us that day.

OU Physicians Patient Dec 15, 2017


OU Physicians Patient Aug 14, 2017

He was very knowledgeable, kind, and spoke to my child directly, not just to me.

OU Physicians Patient Jul 28, 2017

was all over the place in explaining the situation with my child's foot and injury. didn't seem like they fully listened to me on my concerns. there is couple issues with her foot that need addressed and he didn't seem to tell me much but that there was two problems but basically come back few months see how much more she's grown, when there is clearly already a difference in X-rays over month 1/2. just needed to be better explained. my daughter had no clue what the plan was when we left there and neither did I.

OU Physicians Patient Jun 30, 2017

even the observer introduced herself

OU Physicians Patient Mar 13, 2017

Dr. Joseph Davy is an excellent doctor/surgeon. We have seen him for 9years and he has gone above & beyond for our daughter's issues & care.

OU Physicians Patient Mar 6, 2017

he talks with the kids allowing them to explain how they feel

OU Physicians Patient Feb 27, 2017

won't be coming back. worst doctor we have been to.

OU Physicians Patient Feb 6, 2017

came into appointment without knowing anything about our visit other than clubbed foot. very apparent that he did not look at the records or ultrasound

OU Physicians Patient Feb 6, 2017

we love Dr Davey! He's an amazing doctor and needs to be told..

OU Physicians Patient Feb 3, 2017

The waiting time is too long, it took 2 hours to finish the appointment.

OU Physicians Patient Jan 30, 2017

Dr. Davey is the best the doctor ever. He has made a difficult situation manageable. Always friendly and informative and always has our best interests in mind.

OU Physicians Patient Jan 30, 2017

____ has seen Dr Davey many times in the past and he has performed a couple of surgeries on him . I have complete confidence in him and I love his caring nature .

OU Physicians Patient Jan 23, 2017

I will never come back. Both my babies were born here & all of our care here.

OU Physicians Patient Nov 7, 2016

Dr Davey is a wonderful doctor and I completely trust him

OU Physicians Patient Oct 17, 2016

We had a great experience this time, and while we haven't always got the news we wanted to hear, we still trust the doctor and the staff at OU Children's more than anywhere else we've been. We recommend OU Children's to everyone.

OU Physicians Patient Sep 30, 2016

The Doctor came across as very confident which helped calm my fears.

OU Physicians Patient Sep 2, 2016

We love Dr. Davey he has been one of the best Doctors we have ever had. and he have seen my da out her since day 1 that means a lot that he worries and cares about her. He's a great Doctor. we couldn't be more blessed to have him.

OU Physicians Patient Aug 22, 2016

very nice caring man even took a pic w her!!!

OU Physicians Patient Jul 22, 2016

We love Dr. Davey he is a very nice man and really helps us understand the nature of this disease.

OU Physicians Patient Jul 18, 2016

again it's the lack of follow up that concert me. we are still waiting on results and would like some kind of direction.

OU Physicians Patient May 23, 2016

Dr Davey is a awesome dr, keeps my child at ease when we see him

OU Physicians Patient May 23, 2016

Doctor was great at explaining what actions he was gonna take to me to help fix my daughter but also treated my girl like a child and did great at easing her mind

OU Physicians Patient May 20, 2016

He was great. Our normally fussy (with strangers) 20 month old even responded to him well and let him manipulate her hips without any issues.

OU Physicians Patient May 13, 2016

each appointment has been more and more frustrating. We don't ever know if he's going to continue on the plan from the last appointment or completely change it

OU Physicians Patient Apr 22, 2016

Too straightforward, but professional

OU Physicians Patient Apr 4, 2016


OU Physicians Patient Apr 4, 2016

Dr Davey and the Residents were amazing!

OU Physicians Patient Feb 29, 2016

Dr. Davey was with me since 2008. I changed providers that year because I didn't get results from her other providers but when we came to see Dr. Davey that is when she got her leg worked on and the job was successful. He talks to my child and I about the problems that she is having with swelling at the moment.

OU Physicians Patient Feb 26, 2016

We love Dr Davey...been seeing him about our childs leg for 5 years now.

OU Physicians Patient Feb 1, 2016

Dr. Davey has been wonderful. He is very patient and explains everything I should know about my childs care.

OU Physicians Patient Jan 8, 2016

We have been very please with Dr. Davey and how we has walked us through and explained every step of this journey we have been on.

OU Physicians Patient Nov 9, 2015

We really like Dr. Davey. I just wish the wait times were more reasonable.

OU Physicians Patient Oct 19, 2015

All medical staff was wonderful, front desk was only area that was lacking in friendliness.

OU Physicians Patient Aug 31, 2015

We received a surgical recommendation so part of our experience was being overwhelmed by that, not a reflection on Dr. Davey, but we definitely need more information. It would be nice if your Website had better information on what to expect with surgery, info for specific conditions like congenital scoliosis, etc. It would have been nice to get a recommendation outside your practice for a second opinion so we could really feel we did our due diligence for our child.

OU Physicians Patient Aug 13, 2015

would have liked to have more time with the dr.

OU Physicians Patient Jun 25, 2015

I believe dr. davey is an excellent doctor.

OU Physicians Patient Jun 8, 2015

excellent doctor, but come on a 3 hour and 15 min appt.

OU Physicians Patient May 4, 2015

Dr. Davey is a life saver. He's the reason our daughter is still here today and that we've avoided any major surgeries. His methods are the best in the country, if not the world. He treats us like family and talks to our daughter and cares for her like she's his own. Dr. Davey is family to us. We love and respect him for all that he has done for us. Best doctor ever.

OU Physicians Patient Apr 3, 2015

Wouldn't change providers and would recommend him to anyone who wants the best care for their child!

OU Physicians Patient Mar 23, 2015

___ absolutely loves Dr.Davey. She is now 10months old, and he has seen her since she was 2days old. ____ has an extremely rare birth condition, and he has been a vital part of her medical process. ____ knows his voice when she hears it and absolutely feels extremely comfortable with him. The best specialist we see out of the 8 that she sees.

OU Physicians Patient Mar 9, 2015
