My visit with DR. Axelrod was a nice experience explains well and listens well.
in Suwanee, GA |
I was most impressed with Dr. Axelrod. He was friendly, yet professional, thorough, and had looked at my previous records, so he knew right away what my issues were. He talked to me like I was his friend, not like I was a number, and I really liked what he said and did. The results the next day were astounding! I went there limping and hurting; the next day I could run across the ball field! I am 76 years old, so everything does not work like it once did, but my knee is back to 100%!

Very good experience. I would recommend.
in Cumming, GA |
I adore Dr. Axelrod! With past knee injuries, I've experienced the good and bad of orthopedics. Fortunately, when I injured my left knee for the second time in 2014, a friend recommended Dr. Axelrod. After a great experience then, I knew I had to find him again when I recently injured my other knee. He is brilliant and I trust him 100%. When and if he ever retires, I'll have to stop working-out to avoid all injury because I'm unsure whom I'll see for that which ails (definitely not Resurgens)!
Dr. Axelrod is very knowledgable and his bedside manners are outstanding. I was in with both of my parents for their appointments and he took the time to answer all of our questions and spent all the time we needed to be at ease with our situation. I will highly recommend Dr. Axelrod to anyone who needs an orthopedist

in Atlanta, GA |
Dr. Axelrod has a very friendly, professional manner and was interested in helping me improve my condition. His questions about my symptoms and the physical examination itself were both thorough and focused, and Dr. Axelrod's thoughtful approach gave me confidence in his diagnosis and treatment recommendations. Over the years I have been an orthopedic patient many times and so I know how to fairly evaluate care providers. Without reservation, I would rate Dr. Axelrod with five stars.
in Atlanta, GA |

skilled, thoughtful and patient.
in Anderson, SC |
I wanted a third opinion (3rd) for an extensive hip surgery that had been recommended to me by the surgeon who had performed my first hip replacement 15 months prior. Dr. Axelrod put me at ease, asked excellent questions, examined, and listened. He told me there were no broken bones or any reasons for another surgery. I was so relieved that tears came. He is kind, wise, compassionate, and, an excellent orthopaedic surgeon/physician. I trust him completely. I highly recommend him.
