My son fell and hurt his wrist – we took him to ER/Urgent Care Facility and they said he was fine no injuries or anything he had just fallen and was a bit sore. Two days later he still can’t move it without crying so I brought him to see Dr. Markman to get second look and an x-ray. I cannot tell you the great attention to detail and the great one-on-one care both my son and me (as a concerned parent) were given. The doctor thoroughly reviewed his x-ray and his symptoms/area of pain and put him in a casting brace to avoid further injuries. My son 4 weeks later feels so much better – we cannot wait to follow-up with him next week and let him know the improvement. I definitely recommend Dr. Markman and the care provided at Alpha Orthopedics and Sports Medicine.

I am a young adult and very new to having my own insurance policy and finding doctors for myself. I probably called Alpha Orthopedics 3 times to ask them questions regarding my insurance and appointment and Donna, the receptionist was so patient and helful in providing me information and assistance. She was able to schedule me that same day since my work schedule was very busy and once I got to the office, I was able to see Dr. Markman very quickly. Everyone was very friendly and Dr. Markman sat down with me for a while to talk through my injury and the options for recovery. The office is nice and clean and looks new.

I have unfortunately had two torn ACLs and some torn cartilage resulting in multiple surgeries, all performed by Dr. Thompson
ABSOLUTELY LOVE Dr T and Brian! The staff is AWESOME!! they care about my needs and do everything possible to reduce any pain I had from the surgeries I had on my leg. I had my tibia crushed and another Dr did the first procedure, leaving an uneven tibia plateau and severe arthritis. Dr T and Brian were GREAT. They went in twice to remove and clean up the bones and hardware and did a full knee replacement. They were also wonderful with my 3 year old daughter, taking time to talk to her and make her feel important to the situation.
Brian made sure that all our questions and concerns were addressed, making sure I had everything I needed to heal comfortably. I recommend these Dr’s to anyone looking to get ANYTHING taken care of.

Thank you so much for being such a kind, thoughtful healthcare professional and a genuine person. I came in for what turned out to be nothing, but the difference you made is anything but. During our few brief encounters you displayed a tremendous amount of knowledge and expertise, but more importantly, you displayed a sense of compassion unlike anything I have ever seen before. I knew right away I could trust you to do what was best for me!
When I booked my appointment I feared I would be shrugged off or ridiculed because I am no longer the athlete I once was. When you walked in and introduced yourself, you made me feel very comfortable and all that anxiety went out the window. Even though my injury was minor, you never made me feel like I was wasting your time. Because of you, I am now able to use this as a wake-up call to become more active instead of discouraged.
Thank you for providing me with the best care I ever could have asked for!

Thank you so much for being such an attentive and kind physician to myself and my family. You are building such a great reputation, kind words are being spoken about you throughout the community. So, keep up the stellar work and may God continue to guide you as you embark upon this new endeavor.

My primary care physician told me that due to the osteoarthritis in my hip I would eventually need a hip replacement. I’ve always been physically active and was, therefore, very concerned about the amount of down time hip surgery would require. After a year of complaining about hip pain a friend suggested I attend one of the free joint replacement seminars Dr. Toulson hosts. I’m so glad I did!
Dr. Toulson spent the better part of two hours explaining the surgery and answering questions from the audience. He assured me that with his technique involving robotic assisted surgery there would be minimal down time. After an office visit Dr. Toulson confirmed my physician’s assessment that I needed total hip replacement. I decided to go ahead with the surgery. Everyone at Methodist Hospital in McKinney – from admittance to recovery – was professional in every way. I was amazed that I could actually walk the first day after surgery! There was very little pain due to Dr. Toulson’s technique, and I actually stopped taking pain relievers after the first week. I was back at work in two weeks, only needed a cane for about three weeks, and at 6 weeks post-surgery I was walking a mile a day with no problems at all. I don’t know if my experience is exceptional or routine but I am absolutely satisfied with the outcome.
Dr. Toulson gets my highest recommendation.

What a joy you have made this entire experience!
From the first phone call to schedule the first appointment, the first time Dr. Toulson entered the room with his incredible knowledge, skill, empathy, wisdom (and the list goes on…), there has been a strong sense of peace and joy being in your pristine/stellar care. We still talk about how Dr. Toulson beamed when talking/telling us about Brian, his right-hand man, as well as his entire team of people! He is so proud of each one of you – that is why each one of you know how important you are to each patient! You each have made such a difference and we cannot begin to express our heart-felt gratitude! We have heard how he proudly shares and believes in each of you! You all are a powerful, collaborative, cooperative strong team. Thank you for being the “whole village” to walk us through this exciting journey.
