Dr. Arthur Valadie performed knee surgery on me and I couldn’t be happier with the results. He was so professional but also so kind and compassionate. He really listened to me and explained everything in terms that I understood, which is a great trait in Doctors. I would recommend him to anyone!
Melinda Jeter, Dr. Valadie’s PA-C, is the Best! She helped me in so many ways, and I cannot compliment her enough. She is so smart, helpful, kind and caring. She is such an asset to this group and she is Always smiling and upbeat! Thank you, Melinda!
This whole office, from Felicia to the nurses to the front desk ladies, are all very friendly and helpful. Thank you for your help throughout my pre-op and post-op time in this great office.
Excellent interactions. Clear explanations and recommendations. Skillful procedures (joint injections). —From an MD
Dr. Alan and Dr. Arthur Valadie…the BEST of the BEST!

I met with Dr. Arthur Valadie in October…he is so nice and caring!! So gentle, he thinks of his patient’s first and spends time with them instead of rushing them out the door…he did an amazing job on my knee…so pleased, and I will highly recommend him! He is a great doctor!! As they all are at Coastal Orthopedics. They have an amazing therapist also!! Happy patient!!
I had knee surgery on July 5 and just want Dr. Valadie to know that the surgery he performed on my knee is like a miracle. I’ve been struggling for over two years with the results of my previous surgery with a different surgeon. I am biking, running, and swimming without pain. That hard clicking in my knee is gone!! I just want to thank D. Valadie and the staff at Coastal Orthopedics. Every encounter I had was professional, efficient, and caring.
He is outstanding in every respect – concern for me, knowledge and skill, attitude and every other category by which you might rate a doctor. I am 83 years old, have had many, many doctors and too many operations, two of them by him. HE IS THE BEST!!! I wish he were my primary doctor as well as my orthopedic surgeon.

Dr. Arthur L. Valadie has been my doctor for 6 years. He is someone I can share my personal information and entrust with my life decisions. He is kind, considerate, and compassionate. He has treated me with respect, understanding, and he takes time to listen. Time with him is your time, you never feel rushed and he is prepared for your visit. His conservative and complete explanation of my problem gave me confidence that he would be able to solve my problem. Recently he performed Carpal Tunnel release surgery on my left hand. His skill as a surgeon was shown by how quickly the feeling and function returned to my hand. Dr. Valadie has treated me for knee problems and my husband for muscle injuries. I have recommended Dr. Valadie to friends and they also have been very satisfied with him.

I would like to thank Dr. Arthur Valadie for a successful arthroscopic surgery on my knee. I am already back to playing softball. Also, a great BIG THANKS to PA Melinda Jeter! She is just wonderful in following up, answering questions, and taking the time to explain things. She does a great job when it comes to draining knees and administering shots. She is the BEST!!!
I have already recommended Coastal Orthopedics to my brother, who was also very statisfied with the level of service provided. My knees and my health are extremely important to me, and I am extremely picky about my doctors, and especially about who I let perform surgery on me. Dr. Arthur Valadie, and his brother, Dr. Alan Valadie, are THE BIG DOGS in this town when it comes to orthopedics!!! I mentioned this to a med student during a visit to my primary doctor and he agreed with me completely!!! Hopefully I won’t need any more orthopedic work done, but if I do, Coastal will do it! And I will enthusiastically recommend Coastal to anyone I run into who needs any ortho work done. Y’all rock!!!
I would like to thank Dr. Arthur Valadie and Blake Medical Center. After procrastinating three years and playing tennis with pain, I decided to have a full knee replacement this summer. I chose Dr. Valadie and Blake Medical Center. As of this writing, I am six weeks removed from surgery. I am swimming, bike riding and lifting upper body weights with no pain; tennis is 3 to 4 weeks away, hopefully. I wish to extend my most sincere appreciation to Dr. Valadie, his PA, Melinda, and all who contributed to my very good care. Everyone was most cordial and professional. I am about to complete six weeks of physical therapy. In addition to the physical therapy exercises, I do on my own every day. This has greatly enhanced my recovery. After six weeks I am close to 100 percent. May God bless everyone involved in my procedure, including my very gracious and patient wife.

Four years ago, I had bilateral knee replacements by Dr. Arthur Valadie and Dr. Alan Valadie. I had been struggling with knee pain and limited mobility for several years. My world has changed for the better! I can travel, and best of all enjoy fun activities with my grandchildren. I have not had one day of pain since my initial post-op period. Dr. Valadie is a top notch physician. He listens, teaches,and genuinely cares. The best of the best! His office is run efficiently, effectively, and pleasantly. Appointments are on time and staff is pleasant through the process.

Dr. Arthur is a warm, compassionate and caring physician who spends time instilling confidence and allaying fears of forthcoming surgery. His positive attitude is reassuring as he explains the procedure, recovery and expectations for the final outcome. He has excellent staff who go “above and beyond” in many ways to assist with the success of the procedure. Dr. Valadie’s skill as a surgeon and his encouragement convinced my husband and I to successfully ballroom dance at the end of week three (3)! As a 77 year old retired RN, I can honestly say he is my all-time favorite orthopedist who I highly recommend without reservation.

Dr. Valadie is hands down the best! I always refer people to him because of his bedside manner and communication with his patients! Awesome person!

I had bilateral knee replacement 4 years ago and my experience and outcome was beyond my expectations. After a 5 day stay in the hospital and 2 weeks in rehab for PT I have been up and on the go since. Dr. Valadie is patient, thorough, and professional. He is willing to explain and willing to listen. The office is comfortable, pleasant and efficient. I would recommend Dr. Arthur Valadie and Coastal Orthopedics and have done so.
Dr. Valadie was very helpful in reviewing my x-ray and explaining my options that Coastal is offering now. I enjoyed meeting Dr.Valadie! Thank you for taking such good care of me! :D
