Review for Dr. Rider

I was nervous about having shoulder surgery via I am a firefighter and have to have a 100% recovery to return to work. My plan of care was amazing and all the staff was friendly and very helpful with everything. I would highly recommend Dr. Darr and his staff for any orthopaedic needs.

Review for Dr. Darr

Office visit with Dr. Sessions was quite thorough--explaining everything and providing my options. Had carpal tunnel surgery 8 weeks ago and able to function 99% normally. As they say 'it was a piece of cake'! Highly recommended!

Review for Dr. Session

He’s the only Doc that was able to figure out what was wrong with my husband. He listened; then asked questions , got MRIs and together came up with a plan to head off paralysis. We have total faith in him that he will do everything he can to restore some quality of life for my husband
