I highly recommend Dr. A. Bare for any kind of orthopedic surgery. I had a total reverse shoulder replacement and the bone pain was gone immediately. Three days after surgery I no longer needed pain meds. The surgery gave the use of my arm again. Dr. Bare explained everything and I felt well cared for. His office was available to answer any of my questions. I am probably looking to have my left shoulder fixed, and yes, I will use Dr. Bare again. I am 100% satisfied.

Dr. Bare is the best of the best. He and his team is available 24/7 with the greatest results. He is a people doctor with unbelievable skills. He saw me on a day he was in surgery and was not seeing patients. I was given his undivided attention for what I thought was yet another broken hand.

Dr. Bare has done three surgeries on me. I honestly think of him as the god of orthopedic doctors. He is reliably patient and effective. He fixed my shoulder after my first surgery failed. I trust him completely.

Unfortunately I’ve had to go 3 different orthopedic doctors in the last 2 years. Hands down this place is by far the best. Dr. Bare and the rest of the team are extremely nice and very professional. He spent time explaining me my injuries as well as delivering excellent news other doctors couldn’t deliver. Although my leg has terrible pain everyday I was relieved to hear that it is still a healthy leg. Some other doctors tend to quickly look at you, write some notes down and in 5 minutes or less they have assessed you and then we go on with our day. Not Dr. Bare. Thank you again so much for the dignity, diligence and advice!

Dr. Bare and staff did a fantastic job of caring for my son. He had a ACL knee injury which was repaired and he is fully back to himself and now playing sports in college. Nearly my whole family see him. His PA Dan is also great.

I visited Dr. Bare for the first time virtually in January following up on a winter health scare. His office staff is extremely courteous, communicative and professional. Dr. Bare is very attentive, intelligent and tactful in his work. He’s the exact kind of doctor you want in an emergency of the gut. He will take you seriously and you will get the right treatment. Highest possible recommendation from me.

Shoulder specialist, Mr. Bare is a good and dependable doctor. Little costly but service was good, one of my friends underwent a clavicle surgery from there.

Had a nasty hand injury and was referred to Dr. Bare. He did an honest evaluation and performed surgery with results better than promised. Still healing up but very happy with results so far. His assistant was fantastic, as was the therapy staff.

Once again my experience with Dr. Bare was outstanding. He saw me on a day he was in surgery and was not seeing patients.

Besides being so good, smart and confident in his decisions, he is professional and good old fashioned pleasant. I highly recommend him

Extremely impressed by the care I was provided. Dr. Bare performed surgery on my meniscus. I was at physical therapy just one week after my procedure and had not lost any strength or range of motion. I'm now able to run and exercise without any discomfort. Very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. Could not be happier with my results.

Great experience. my son tore his labrum in gymnastics and was able to compete stronger the following year. I injured both of my shoulders 2018 and 2019 suffered compete rotator cuff repairs. Recovery although uncomfortable was fairy pain free. I have full use of both shoulders and would never know that i have had repairs done.

Dr. Aaron Bare and his team are excellent. I was quite nervous about a full shoulder replacement, he answered all my questions. I am through the surgery and physical therapy and survived well. He is a great surgeon.

So happy with my shoulder replacement surgery - thanks Dr Bare and team. I wish I hadn’t waited so long because of all the negative stories of shoulder surgery being tough and painful. Not in my case. I couldn’t be more satisfied with the outcome. Minimal pain from surgery, and 7 weeks later, I am well on my to gaining pain free range of motion. Looking forward to dancing the ‘Chicken Dance’ at my nephew’s wedding...

Dr. Bare and his team are first rate. I went to him with shoulder pain and he said I had likely damaged my rotator cuff but only a MRI could tell for sure. He offered to prescribe PT to see if my shoulder would improve without surgery. After six weeks of PT I had the MRI which revealed I had torn several tendons. He scheduled me for arthroscopic repair which, thanks to his skill and his team’s efficiency, went smoothly and I’m now happily on the mend.

I couldn't be more pleased with Dr. Bare! My son had ruptured his pectoral muscle and thought it would never be the same. Six months after surgery with Dr. Bare and it is better than ever! Everyone in his office was so responsive and helpful. They really were so great to work with and I STRONGLY recommend seeing Dr. Bare.

Dr. Bare is superb. He repaired my husbands injured knee and my fractured shoulder. In both cases he made himself immediatley available to speak with us. He took meticulous care of each of us every step of the way-from the initial examination. to preparation for the surgery, to the surgery itself. Dr. Bare carefully tailored our individual physical therapy and rehab regimens in close collaboration with hand-picked rehab specialists, and monitored our progress regularly. We could not be more satisfied with the results. In my husbands case, he was back on his feet without crutches weeks sooner than the Dr. predicted, and he was able to resume physical activity in a timely manner that Dr. Bare thoughtfully laid out. The care he takes is evident in all aspects of his practice. We highly recommend Dr. Bare.
