Follow up for left thumb swelling and pain. Dr. Barth has operated on both my CMC joints with great results, but my left MP joint occasionally swells and has pain.

Review for Dr. Barth

He makes me not feel just *another* patient, but his only one. Compassionate, informative, and talented.

Review for Dr. Bruno

Dr. Siram is in my opinion the new super star in full hip replacement in the Washington DC area. The surgical procedure he uses spares muscle and tendons which allowed an amazingly quick recuperation for me. I was able to walk without walker or cane within 3-4 days.

Review for Dr. Siram

Dr Wolff was professional, attentive and made the entire surgery as simple as possible for me. I definitely recommend him for hip surgery!

Dr.Melvin treats the problem and does not jump into suggesting immediate surgery without exploring all other options. He has a good bedside manner and it is easy to talk to him. His staff too are approachable. Overall, a good experience and a doctor I would recommend.

The mental benefits of having seen Dr. Haines reduced my pain level immediately! The caring, listening, genuine interest and ability to instill hope that he radiates have instant healing benefits. I went into the office severely limping in pain, and left walking on cloud nine.

Dr. Bernstein performed successful shoulder surgery on my son two years ago, allowing him to resume contact sports without a hitch. Dr. Bernstein always immediately responds when we text him, even off hours. He’s the best of the best, and we wouldn’t go anywhere else when the stakes are high.
