Dr Garelick and his staff are really responsive and effective. He helped me enormously with a tenacious shoulder problem. Everyone at IBJI at the California Avenue office is excellent. I have also had my hip replaced by Dr Ackerman at this practice. I cannot speak highly enough of everyone there.

I have met with Dr. Garelick numerous times for my numerous injuries (ankle, knee, shoulder, other ankle, not in that order). I recommend him to anyone who needs help. He is fantastic. I would give him 10 stars if I could.
