Dr. Saied did both of my knee replacements and he is the nicest Dr.. He speaks clearly and answers all questions. The only thing is he did talk quite fast this time and I had to think quickly. All in all, Dr. Saied is great. Thank you Dr. Saied and thank you to all his staff.

Review for Dr. Anders

He cured a back problem, tethered-cord syndrome, which a multitude of doctors over 25 yrs could not even find.

Review for Dr. Saied

Dr. Balch is an excellent doctor and surgeon. He did my total knee replacement surgery and made the experience a great one. He is available and listens to concerns and his follow up is probably the best of any doctor I have been to. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing joint care.
