I have been under the care of doctors at the Bone&Joint Clinic for several years. I have come to trust them highly as they seek the best care for me and advise against unnecessary surgery while other options are available.

Review for Dr. Habetz

I fell and broke my right hip. I met him for the first time in the ER. He had such good bedside manner. After the surgery he explained to me what he did and it was quite extensive. Not the ordinary break. He was indeed my hero. That was two months ago and I am almost back to normal.
