Dr. Panero did a thorough evaluation and identified a problem area in the Soleus Muscle. None of the other physicians that I went to about this ongoing problem noted the irregularity. He recommended PRP treatments. As evidenced by the pre- and post procedure ultrasounds, new tissue has developed and movement within my Achilles Tendon continues to improve...I am almost back to my old routine - My sincere appreciation to Dr Panero.

A good listener, discusses diagnosis and suggested procedures with patient, and promptly executes a course of action. His front person doing check in, etc. is courteous and efficient, and his appointment person is equally good.

I should note I was referred to Dr Panero by an orthopedic surgeon at UC Davis. I originally received PRP injections in my elbow in January 2020. It worked great and I returned to golfing in late April, however several weeks later I ruined my progress by over working my elbow in a landscape project. In November I received a more aggressive treatment of stem cell injections. Now, my elbow is brand new and I’ve once again returned to golf. That’s my passion. During both procedures and recovery Dr. Panero was very professional and highly competent. I had lots of questions and he had even more answers. He described the treatment options and procedures and left me confident and excited to get started. I’m very thankful to Dr. Panero and his assistant Sabrina.
