I have no idea how anyone could not give Maegan Barrs 5 stars. She was attentive, kind and most importantly thorough in her evaluation. I’m so glad I found her

Review for Dr. Khan

Staff was very professional and friendly. Dr Singer took his time studying my X-rays and was very thorough in explaining his opinion. He listened to my concerns and answered all of my questions in a way that I could fully understand.

Review for Dr. Singer

I had a great visit and examination by Dr. singer. Good news - no knee surgery needed just early arthritis in my knees. I highly recommend OrthoCarolina and especially Dr. Singer.
