Please join us in congratulating Dr. Bart Eastwood, DO and Matthew Shortt, PA-C for being honored with the First Place “Best Bedside Manner” award from OurHealth Roanoke & New River Valleys Magazine! For the 11th year in a row, OurHealth Roanoke has polled the public for local medical providers that have the best bedside manner, and Sideline Orthopedics & Sports Medicine has been recognized in the categories of Orthopedics and Physician Assistant.

The Best Bedside Manner Award is earned by medical providers that have made an impression of excellence on their patients. It is voted on solely by patients, not by other medical providers, and is a rating system where patients share their personal experiences with nominated doctors.

Over 35,000 local residents voted for medical providers in over 50 specialties. Local residents answered the call to nominate and vote in May, and have chosen Dr. Bart Eastwood and Matthew Shortt, PA-C of Sideline Orthopedics and Sports Medicine as an example of excellence in orthopedic bedside manner.

Many times, people attend doctor’s appointments with anxiety about their diagnosis, or unease about what they will be told they need to do. Dr. Eastwood and the team at Sideline Orthopedics has made it their goal to put their patients at ease during the time spent in the office. Says Dr. Eastwood, “An injury or orthopedic condition takes a person’s life from them that is part of who they are…The bedside is my opportunity to find out what that is and how we can return that to their life.”

To schedule an appointment with Dr. Bart Eastwood or with Matthew Shortt for your orthopedic needs, contact Sideline Orthopedics and Sports Medicine at (540) 552-7133. We are ready to get you back in the game!
