    Even though Dr. Sabonghy is a surgeon, he seeks conservative treatments first - after 2 knee & 1 shoulder injury, I've never had to have surgery. He explains everything in language that non-medical professionals (like me!) can understand. Also, I've seen another doctor in his practice for an issue outside of his specialty, and he's checked up on me when he's seen me there even though it's been over a year since I saw him. It just goes to show he truly cares about his patients!
