Exceptional Care by Dr. Raphael and His Team
Dr. Raphael is an Exceptional Doctor. He listened to my concerns and explained what was going on and why I was in so much with my left shoulder. He was very patient, courteous, and friendly. He ordered x-rays and diagnosed me, and gave me a cortisone shot, a prescription, and a referral for PT. I'm so glad that I decided to go to the Doctor. Thank you

At SOS, the whole staff is amazing. They are courteous, compassionate, knowledgeable, and efficient. Dr. Raphael took his time to explain what was wrong with my knee, and which course of action would most beneficial. PT was suggested for a few visits with continuation of exercises at home. Several years ago he did my shoulder surgery. Great results and the follow up was wonderful. Highly recommend SOS

Amazing care by Dr. Raphael and the whole SOS team
Great care by Dr. Raphael and his team from the first post-injury visit a year ago (decided not to get ACL reconstruction at that time - it would have been #3 for the same knee) through physio and follow up visits. Finally decided in February to have the surgery which happened yesterday. Least pain of any of them! And I've been in the best shape post operation (24 hours later). Everyone was professional, friendly, and considerate. Highly recommend SOS and Dr. Raphael.

I visited Dr. Raphael for what turned out to be my final check up after ACL reconstructive surgery. Staff is always polite and positive. I truly appreciate Dr. Raphael's expertise, professionalism and positivity! He and his team's fine work will help me get back to enjoying the activity and sports I've been yearning to do before I had my surgery. I highly recommend SOS and especially Dr. Raphael to treat any orthopedic injury that may occur!

Dr. Raphael, as well as his office and clinical staff, work with professionalism and efficiency. It is very apparent that the doctor is knowledgeable and skilled in his field, yet he answers questions and offers information in "plain English." I found this very helpful when charting a treatment plan for a successful outcome. I feel very confident in my decision to be working with Dr. Raphael. I would not hesitate to refer friends or family members to his office.

One star required to submit review. Worst experience ever. He was judgmental, disinterested, and due to his inappropriate assumption, and lack of taking a medical history, I left completely uninformed and untreated. I have had a prior surgery with an SOS provider with great result. Very disappointed with his lack of professionalism. I was "reminded" that he had already spent 12 minutes with me, and felt like I was wasting his time. Hopefully he is better with other patients.

Dr. Raphael is the best of the best. He has done surgery on my knee twice now (ACL/meniscus). He always educates me on what he is doing, and why it’s important. Besides that, his work is godly. Both times after surgery my recovery was smooth as butter, considering ACL recovery can be extremely difficult for many people. After going through two surgeries with Dr. Raphael, he will be my ONLY option if needed in the future. My surgeries were two years apart, and he remembered me when I came back recently. Other than being a great surgeon, Dr. Raphael in general is a very nice, personable guy. When he told me the bad news that I tore my ACL, I was devastated, literally started crying like a baby in front of him. And he did all the right things following that, he was able to calm me down, and see the bright side of things. He made me realize that it was not the end of the world like I thought it was. And here we are a couple years later and it feels good as new. Thank you to Dr. Raphael!!!
