Emerge Ortho provides wonderful, professional care. I have used their services 2 times in the recent past and they have done a fine job.

Dr. Takenaga is a very sincere and caring doctor. I have told all my friends and bowling friends how good of a doctor he is.

I feel like Dr. Takenaga was really invested in my problem and solution.

Dr was attentive, knowledgeable I believe I am in good hands. After breaking my wrist in 2 places and wanting to avoid surgery things are looking good 5 days after my fall.

Thank staff at EmergeOrtho are amazing! They are kind and respectful. De. Takenaga is the best! I would highly recommend him to anyone needing hip replacement. The care I received from him and his staff was more than five star.

Dr. Takenaga has now fixed both my knees. My most recent injury was a ruptured acl and like before he has done a great job. He has a true gift and is very compassionate. I would never let anyone else ever perform osurgery on me. I am so grateful to have had the pleasure of working with him 6 years ago with my first knee injury.

He makes me feel comfortable and always honest about my process. He seems to have a sincere concern when speaking with me about my condition.

I arrived at Emerge Ortho in 2020 one miserable woman with a torn rotator cuff and frozen shoulder. I'm grateful for a nonsurgical approach to heal it. After many months of PT, I'm pleased to say that my shoulder is back to just about normal. I can't thank PT- Daniel and the rest of the Emerge Ortho at South Point team enough. I also recommend Dr. Takanaga. Top notch care from them all.

Very compassionate and caring doctor. Recommend him highly.

Everyone in the clinic are truly delightful. They allow you to check in prior to arrival which is wonderful. I first met Dr. Takenaga when I broke my ankle several years ago. He has a pleasant personality and was very helpful with a great bed side manner. I highly recommend him as physician as I have been extremely satisfied with both he and the clinic.

He really listened to me and offered several ways to address the problems. Very caring and friendly staff.

I’m rating Dr. Takenaga 5 stars because since I first started seeing him on Sept 2018 under his care he has an awesome bedside manner, super rapport, always putting you first in your concerns, take his time the best he can to make sure he doesn’t walk out the door to his exam room before wishing you well and call him if you have an emergency or more concerns later! I wish the VA could have doctors like him!

He has wonderful people skills. He is also very friendly and welcoming which puts you at ease. Great experience. I highly recommend Dr. Takenaga and his staff.

Dr Takenaga is a very very nice and compassionate dr. He explained everything to me so i would understand exactly what was going on. I was referred to him after an accident at work. Couldn't have made a better choice. I'd definitely recommend him to others. The best orthopedic dr I've been to. ????

This was my first visit with Dr Takenaga for problems with my knees. The office staff provided the first very good impression. Check in was fast and my wait time was minimal. Dr Takenaga had clearly read the background information and MRI results provided by my referring physician. He was very amiable and thoroughly explained his thought process and findings from my physical exam. The nonsurgical treatment he provided was painless and, most importantly, effective. He offered his availability should I need further treatment in the future. Overall a great experience with both the physician and the practice.

I have been going to Emerge Ortho for two years the staff is awesome

Extremely kind, knowledgeable and efficient service. I highly recommend this practice! My visit was with Dr. Takenaga, who was very attentive, personable and informative.

From the first time I met Dr Steven Winters to Dr Ryan Takenaga I refuse to go to another Orthopedic practice. These doctors care about the well being of their patients. I started as a patient at Triangle Orthopedics (TOA) and when the named changed I was worried about my care but I gave them the benefit of my doubts and they have exceeded my expectations. I truly miss Dr Winters and Erin but I truly love Dr Takenaga and Dr Kimberly Graham

Would highly recommend dr t. Diana is physical therapy is the best

Dr.Takenaga performed 2 different surgeries for me. One was a rotator cuff and the other was a torn meniscus. I can not say enough good things about my overall experience...100% satisfied!!

I would recommend Dr. Takenaga and EmergeOrtho in Roxboro. I fell and broke my humerus and had to have surgery. Dr. Takenaga and all the staff all the way to physical therapy were great. They all were extremely nice and after a couple of visits they knew who I was by name. It was great to have such a competent and friendly staff. I am still healing slowly but they are taking great care of me!

Treatment has consistently resulted in sustained pain relief. Dr. Takenaga and staff are courteous and attentive. I am grateful for the time taken to explain my condition.

He is an amazing doctor who has a great bedside manner. And he is a very compassionate doctor who cares about his patients

Great personality and gives specific answers to any and all questions.

I went to Dr. Takenaga for carpel tunnel surgery. He listened to me even though he had probably heard the same thing hundreds of times. He provided excellent care throughout the entire surgery and post-op. The Emerge staff at the office and the surgical clinic are excellent. I would recommend Dr. Takenaga to anyone for excellent care.

I went in with carpel tunnel issues that I had been experiencing for several years. Dr. Takenaga was respectful and listened to me explain what I was experiencing, even though he had probably heard it hundreds of times. We scheduled surgery at the Emerge Clinic in Durham, (also an excellent staff), and everything went off without a hitch. I would recommend Dr. Takenaga and all the Emerge staff to anyone.

I am a retired Respiratory Therapist, and believe I have a background that qualifies me to review a doctor with a significant degree of professional and personal perspective. Dr. Takenaga evaluated my shoulder injury and recommended a surgical repair of a large rotator cuff tear. I found him to be very courteous, thorough, attentive, and forthcoming. I am now six months post op, and believe that I can say that his surgical skill skill is top notch. I have had zero complications, and my progress has been smooth. His entire organization is very efficient, and the staff have been uniformly courteous and professional. I can comfortably recommend Dr. Takenaga wholeheartedly for any orthopedic issues.

Had a reverse total shoulder replacement. Could not ask for a better surgeon the Dr. Takenaga. His follow up care has been superb a well.

I had a reverse total shoulder replacement. I could not have asked for a better surgeon than Dr. Takenaga. He took the time to explain everything answered all my questions. Simply a superb physician.

Dr. Takenagawas very personal, friendly and took good care of me before and after my procedure. He listened attentively as I told him what I was going on with me. After the discussion of the current procedure, I asked him about something else that was happening with me, he politely answered me. Never in a hurry, focused on me. Always smiling. Thank you Dr. Takenaga for all you did for me.

My family and I are thrilled with the outcome. From serious pain to no pain in 3 months. I will always check with Dr Takenaga with any other surgery I need.

Very pleasant respectful dr.He teyly cares about the patient he always asked how im doing and to let him know what i need. He smiles all the time makes you fill comfortable relaxed and in good hands.

Very good Doctor.

Always listens to what I have to say. And gives answers!!!

I recommend this doctor to anyone that’s wants a caring doctor! He did my knee replacement and did a great job!

Dr. Takenaga is a doctor that cares about his patients! He took the time to call me personally to see how I was doing after I had knee replacement surgery! I strongly recommend him to everyone I talk too!

I was touched by him for what he did for me. I highly recommend him to the world. He is very caring toward his patients especially seniors. Annie Jean Stuckey, Oxford, NC

I visited Dr Takenaga for some mid-level knee pain. Service at EmergeOthro was excellent, and diagnosis was quick and accurate. I did elect to have surgery to clean up some meniscus and cartilage damage in my knee. Results were wonderful, almost instant relief in my case. Dr Takenaga is very personable, and I’d highly recommend him and EmergeOrthro for any knee or joint related issues.

Dr. Takenaga performed an extensive surgery on my 62 year old injured shoulder. Prior to surgery I had almost no mobility and significant pain when using my left arm. 5 months after surgery I have 90% mobility, no pain and I am playing golf again. He performed brilliantly for me, my wife, and my grandson who I can lift and hug again?

Dr. Takenage is a wonderful doctor. He is very kind and professional. He did surgery on my left ring finger and he did a wonderful job!

Dr. Takenage is an excellent doctor. He is very easy to talk to and very professional. He did surgery on my left ring finger and did a wonderful job.

Dr. Takenaga is wonderful to work with. He's very knowledgeable, very personable, and made me feel calm and comfortable about my visit, the procedure and the followup care. Read his bio. His education and life experience go far beyond books and classes. In my visits, we talked about my care options and he addressed my concerns and the research I had done. We agreed on the approach he recommended and the care he administered immediately reduced my pain. The follow-on PT continued my improvement.

Dr. Takenaga not only solved my problem through his diagnosis and treatment, but also, importantly, allayed my fears, answered my questions and made me feel very comfortable about the course of treatment. While he is a surgeon, my care did not require surgery although my condition sometimes can. He worked with me with a 'light touch' which proved to be just what I needed. I had immediate relief. Dr. Takenaga's plan involved more than just visiting him in the office. Do the PT. Do the work. This holistic approach solved my problem in a few months, vs. a few fruitless months prior trying a different care plan, not with the EmergeOrtho practice. I highly recomend Dr. Takenaga.

Excellent doctor, he explained everything and I felt I was getting the latest up-to-date procedure.

Great doctor, explained very thing thoroughly. Procedure was just has he said.

The services I received from Dr. Ryan Takenaga were exceptional from my first visit to my last visit. He's caring, personable, knowledgeable, and very professional. I'm sharing my positive experiences with all my friends. His team of nurses, doctors, physical therapists, and much more are equally amazing.

I a vet and have never been treated with such great care.Dr. Takenaga talked me through everything step by step.Thank you for everything,you are the best.

The best and very caring

My whole experience in having foot surgery went very smoothly. Dr. Takenaga explained my options at the first appointment, and the decision to have surgery was made that day. Surgery was a week later; and, again, Dr. Takenaga explained the procedure. Surgery went smoothly, as did my recovery. I had two post-op visits in which Dr. Takenaga examined my foot and answered any questions I had. Great bedside manner!

Great doctor! Would recommend to anyone

I felt I received extremely good care from the doctor and staff.

He is a good doctor. Take time to understand the patient..very friendly.

Dr. T is a wonderful doctor and an asset to his professional. He has helped me greatly and I would not have had the success with my fractures without his utmost attention and care. God bless this wonderful doctor.

Dr Takenaga and staff have taken great care of me during this experience, and I highly recommend them if you are having orthopedic problems.

Had been putting up with knee pain for a few years, Dr Takenaga and the team found a schedule surgery that worked with my schedule. All went as plan I would recommend theme for all.

The professionalism of all the staff, including P.T was of the highest quality. Dr. Takenaga was such a personal, caring, and informative physician that I have ever encountered. They were the Best!

Dr. Takenaga is a absolutely the best orthopedic surgeon I have ever dealt with. He always comes with a smile, very knowledgeable and though I came to see him for my Rotar Cuff injury and I was told I needed surgery on both shoulders. Dr. Takenaga decided to try a steroid injection and to my pleasure it has helped relieve some of the pain (anything is better than nothing) Thank you Dr. Takenaga, I truly appreciate you!

My mother's experience with Dr. Takenaga has been extremely great. He is very pleasant, professional, caring and efficient with his practice. We have not ever received services from a doctor with his level of expertise and satisfaction. I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of services like my mother had.

My experience with Dr. Takenaga and his staff was excellent

My experience with Dr. Takenaga and his staff was excellent.

I had arthroscopic knee surgery done by Dr. Takenaga in December. He explained the procedure, expected results, and recovery time very clearly. Day of surgery, he again asked if I had any questions and everything went well. I had misplaced my post op exercise instructions, and Dr. Takenaga's assistant promptly sent them to me. I'm a nurse and have high expectations. They were met!

I like how he takes time to talk to me. I always have questions. That's my way of learning and understanding my conditions. I like his energy, thoroughly. He gives you time to discuss options or plans. He is the doctor, not me. Thanks!

Excellent carpal tunnel release surgeon. Dr. Takenaga is prompt and very thorough with his exams. He does not rush during your visit. He makes sure that his patients understand what their particular medical issue is and what can be done to help. He does not push you to have surgery and will give other treatment options that may help. If surgery is needed he will go the extra mile to explain in detail why it is needed and what the end results should be.

Dr Takenaga is very knowledgeable and has a very nice bedside manner. He is very concerned about your health before, during and after your surgery. If I have other issue, I'll be contacting him again.

I've only known Dr..Taken against 4 a short period of time and I am very pleased and satisfied with the surgery he did 4 me I was in a lot of pain and he worked very fast and quickly with me 2 talk with me and perform my surgery. I am greatly appreciated and I thank God 4 him he is a blessing I will recommended him 2 anyone.

Dr. Takenaga is very sensitive and very concerned about what is going on with my body. He's very polite and give you the opportunity to talk as well. I have a doctor-patient relationship with him.

There are so many great things that myself and my husband could say about Dr Takenaga. My husband had tennis elbow really bad to the point it was unbearable. He was terrified about surgery but after meeting and speaking with Dr. T he agreed to have the surgery. Dr T sat down and explained all that would be done in operating room and his recovery. His bed side manners are absolutely phenomenal he truly cares about his patients. If an issue arises the dr himself will call you. Thank you Dr. T.

Super nice Dr and had wonderful results from my surgery.

My experience was great!

I would recommend Dr. Takenaga for surgery on the knee (meniscus tear) I found his bedside manner to be both professional and thorough. After an MRI my surgery was scheduled quickly and follow-up was very helpful! The entire staff at Triangle Orthopaedic was great!

Knowledgeable, Great Doctor. I would go back to get anything done especially with him.

Knowledgeable, Great Doctor. I would go back to get anything done especially with him.

Excellent Dr. listens and understands and treats you as if he is truly concerned. Excellent bedside. My surgery on my right knee wen great and he has really followed through with me... I am not a good listener and do not know when to stay down and rest, but he has walked me through it. I highly recommend him.

My experience was very good - He is very friendly and knowlegable.

After having my left hip relaced in 2008 with less than stellar results, I was very lucky to meet Ryan Takenaga through my insurance person. He replaced my right one with expertise, skill and elan. My chronic and acute pain is now an ugly memory. I recommend Dr. Takenaga to anyone with no reservations whatsoever. Bob Corelle

I am a retired Respiratory Therapist, and believe I have a background that qualifies me to review a doctor with a significant degree of professional and personal perspective. Dr. Takenaga evaluated my shoulder injury and recommended a surgical repair of a large rotator cuff tear. I found him to be very courteous, thorough, attentive, and forthcoming. I am now six months post op, and believe that I can say that his surgical skill skill is top notch. I have had zero complications, and my progress has been smooth. His entire organization is very efficient, and the staff have been uniformly courteous and professional. I can comfortably recommend Dr. Takenaga wholeheartedly for any orthopedic issues.

I had a reverse total shoulder replacement. I could not have asked for a better surgeon than Dr. Takenaga. He took the time to explain everything answered all my questions. Simply a superb physician.

Vitals Guest

Dr. Takenagawas very personal, friendly and took good care of me before and after my procedure. He listened attentively as I told him what I was going on with me. After the discussion of the current procedure, I asked him about something else that was happening with me, he politely answered me. Never in a hurry, focused on me. Always smiling. Thank you Dr. Takenaga for all you did for me.

Vitals Guest

My family and I are thrilled with the outcome. From serious pain to no pain in 3 months. I will always check with Dr Takenaga with any other surgery I need.

Vitals Guest

Dr. Takenaga is a doctor that cares about his patients! He took the time to call me personally to see how I was doing after I had knee replacement surgery! I strongly recommend him to everyone I talk too!

I visited Dr Takenaga for some mid-level knee pain. Service at EmergeOthro was excellent, and diagnosis was quick and accurate. I did elect to have surgery to clean up some meniscus and cartilage damage in my knee. Results were wonderful, almost instant relief in my case. Dr Takenaga is very personable, and I’d highly recommend him and EmergeOrthro for any knee or joint related issues.

Dr. Takenaga performed an extensive surgery on my 62 year old injured shoulder. Prior to surgery I had almost no mobility and significant pain when using my left arm. 5 months after surgery I have 90% mobility, no pain and I am playing golf again. He performed brilliantly for me, my wife, and my grandson who I can lift and hug again?

Tom

Dr. Takenaga is wonderful to work with. He's very knowledgeable, very personable, and made me feel calm and comfortable about my visit, the procedure and the followup care. Read his bio. His education and life experience go far beyond books and classes. In my visits, we talked about my care options and he addressed my concerns and the research I had done. We agreed on the approach he recommended and the care he administered immediately reduced my pain. The follow-on PT continued my improvement.

Vitals Guest

Dr. Takenaga not only solved my problem through his diagnosis and treatment, but also, importantly, allayed my fears, answered my questions and made me feel very comfortable about the course of treatment. While he is a surgeon, my care did not require surgery although my condition sometimes can. He worked with me with a 'light touch' which proved to be just what I needed. I had immediate relief. Dr. Takenaga's plan involved more than just visiting him in the office. Do the PT. Do the work. This holistic approach solved my problem in a few months, vs. a few fruitless months prior trying a different care plan, not with the EmergeOrtho practice. I highly recomend Dr. Takenaga.

Nancy Bowman

Excellent doctor, he explained everything and I felt I was getting the latest up-to-date procedure.

Vitals Guest

Great doctor, explained very thing thoroughly. Procedure was just has he said.

Karen

The services I received from Dr. Ryan Takenaga were exceptional from my first visit to my last visit. He's caring, personable, knowledgeable, and very professional. I'm sharing my positive experiences with all my friends. His team of nurses, doctors, physical therapists, and much more are equally amazing.

Vitals Guest

I a vet and have never been treated with such great care.Dr. Takenaga talked me through everything step by step.Thank you for everything,you are the best.

My whole experience in having foot surgery went very smoothly. Dr. Takenaga explained my options at the first appointment, and the decision to have surgery was made that day. Surgery was a week later; and, again, Dr. Takenaga explained the procedure. Surgery went smoothly, as did my recovery. I had two post-op visits in which Dr. Takenaga examined my foot and answered any questions I had. Great bedside manner!

Reviewer

The professionalism of all the staff, including P.T was of the highest quality. Dr. Takenaga was such a personal, caring, and informative physician that I have ever encountered. They were the Best!

Reviewer

Dr. Takenaga is a absolutely the best orthopedic surgeon I have ever dealt with. He always comes with a smile, very knowledgeable and though I came to see him for my Rotar Cuff injury and I was told I needed surgery on both shoulders. Dr. Takenaga decided to try a steroid injection and to my pleasure it has helped relieve some of the pain (anything is better than nothing) Thank you Dr. Takenaga, I truly appreciate you!

Vitals Guest

My mother's experience with Dr. Takenaga has been extremely great. He is very pleasant, professional, caring and efficient with his practice. We have not ever received services from a doctor with his level of expertise and satisfaction. I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of services like my mother had.

I had arthroscopic knee surgery done by Dr. Takenaga in December. He explained the procedure, expected results, and recovery time very clearly. Day of surgery, he again asked if I had any questions and everything went well. I had misplaced my post op exercise instructions, and Dr. Takenaga's assistant promptly sent them to me. I'm a nurse and have high expectations. They were met!

Faye K.

I like how he takes time to talk to me. I always have questions. That's my way of learning and understanding my conditions. I like his energy, thoroughly. He gives you time to discuss options or plans. He is the doctor, not me. Thanks!

Reviewer

Excellent carpal tunnel release surgeon. Dr. Takenaga is prompt and very thorough with his exams. He does not rush during your visit. He makes sure that his patients understand what their particular medical issue is and what can be done to help. He does not push you to have surgery and will give other treatment options that may help. If surgery is needed he will go the extra mile to explain in detail why it is needed and what the end results should be.

Dona

Dr Takenaga is very knowledgeable and has a very nice bedside manner. He is very concerned about your health before, during and after your surgery. If I have other issue, I'll be contacting him again.

Jacqueline P. Burton

Dr. Takenaga is very sensitive and very concerned about what is going on with my body. He's very polite and give you the opportunity to talk as well. I have a doctor-patient relationship with him.

Carlos R

There are so many great things that myself and my husband could say about Dr Takenaga. My husband had tennis elbow really bad to the point it was unbearable. He was terrified about surgery but after meeting and speaking with Dr. T he agreed to have the surgery. Dr T sat down and explained all that would be done in operating room and his recovery. His bed side manners are absolutely phenomenal he truly cares about his patients. If an issue arises the dr himself will call you. Thank you Dr. T.

Amelia Hicks

Super nice Dr and had wonderful results from my surgery.

I would recommend Dr. Takenaga for surgery on the knee (meniscus tear) I found his bedside manner to be both professional and thorough. After an MRI my surgery was scheduled quickly and follow-up was very helpful! The entire staff at Triangle Orthopaedic was great!

Andrew Roberson

Knowledgeable, Great Doctor. I would go back to get anything done especially with him.

Excellent Dr. listens and understands and treats you as if he is truly concerned. Excellent bedside. My surgery on my right knee wen great and he has really followed through with me... I am not a good listener and do not know when to stay down and rest, but he has walked me through it. I highly recommend him.

After having my left hip relaced in 2008 with less than stellar results, I was very lucky to meet Ryan Takenaga through my insurance person. He replaced my right one with expertise, skill and elan. My chronic and acute pain is now an ugly memory. I recommend Dr. Takenaga to anyone with no reservations whatsoever. Bob Corelle
