Review of Dr. Rachala


I saw dr Rachala for the first time today for osteoarthritis of my knees. He is very professional and his reputation is impeccable. He sat down and reviewed my lab and xrays without rushing. He explained my options thoroughly and explained complications of surgery. He answered all my questions in a kind and understanding way. He is not arrogant or dismissive. He uses robotic surgery and a pain catheter to help with pain after surgery. I trust him implicitly.

Review of Dr. Bagnall


I have not met Dr. Bagnall yet, I have been trying to get an appointment for weeks. The staff told me today that I was a no-show and that Dr. Bagnall would never see me. I phone to cancel my appointment. Today the clerk said she had to investigate the issue and "run" down who took the call. I asked if I was in danger of Dr. Bagnall 'never' seeing me. She said yes. Is this crazy or what. The support staffs for this medical group are unbelievable. There is not enough space to write more.

Review of Dr. Freitas


Dr. Freitas is great as both my primary and knee doctor. He spends time with you, listens to you, and diagnosis issues other doctors miss. I would recommend him to anyone!!

Review of Dr. McGrath


No followup. No follow through. Leaves all the after surgery to his staff. Won't use him again. My guess is he is too busy and greed has dictated his practice.

Review of Dr. Darling


I feel like Dr. Darling saved our son's life. He suffered a concussion (TBI) and needed treatment for dizziness/balance issues, headache, double vision and general mental confusion. Dr. Darling not only ordered the treatment for him, but really listened to him and was concerned for how he was doing in his life. We will be forever grateful to him.

Review of Dr. Hamill

-Buffalo, NY |

Dr. Hamill did an discetomy on me in 2007. Before the surgery I was in pain 24/7. I couldn’t walk from my house to the corner of my street and I live two houses from the corner. I couldn’t did the shopping, stand or sit long. 11 years later I’m still pain free and walking my dog every day!
