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.

Once again my experience with Dr. Bare was outstanding. 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 knee. Dr. Bare has every wonderful quality you would want in a physician. 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.

Grateful patient – Jan 01, 2021
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...

Geri – Dec 26, 2020
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.

Jim Hatfield – Oct 16, 2020
I had total shoulder replacement surgery in July performed by Dr. Bare. He was highly recommended by my personal physician as the best in our area. That recommendation proved to be true. He is kind, patient, and very competent. He took all the time necessary to educated me on what was to come and what to expect. Others had told me that this type of shoulder surgery was very painful and had a long painful recovery period. None of that proved to be true. Of the many painful surgeries I have have had in my life, this one proved to be the most pain free. I had no overnight stay in the hospital and so far my recovery has been excellent. I would highly recommend Dr. Bare and his staff to anyone needing their expertise.

I'm writing this to express my admiration and profound gratitude to Dr. Bare, who operated on my torn meniscus this year. Dr. Bare is an elite surgeon and person who, in my case, was able to take away any fear I had with regards to the healing process and recovery. My results with Dr. Bare have been stunning and I feel better than ever. In addition to his excellence as an orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Bare has assembled a smart and caring staff who go out of their way to make all the patients comfortable. My words can't thank you enough!

The office staff were very friendly and helpful. Dr. Bare was very mindful of my injury and took the time to explain how they would fix it. The day of my surgery everything went great. Dr. Bare explained everything to me before the surgery and talked to me after. It's been four months and my arm/long head bicep feels great!! No more constant pain!!! I would highly recommend Dr. Bare. Thank you for handling my surgery with care.

If you want the best, go see Dr. Bare. He really cares about his patients. Through careful and deliberate analysis, Dr. Bare accurately diagnosed my knee injury that had been misdiagnosed by other surgeons. Post surgery he has been attentive, available, and committed to a great outcome.
