After having a negative experience at a nearby reputable orthopedic clinic, I saw Dr. Deneka and he immediately diagnosed my condition and took time to explain it thoroughly. I have been very satisfied with the treatment plan he prescribed and have confidence in his knowledge and capabilities as a physician.
