Patient satisfaction ratings and reviews are based on personal opinions. Before you choose any doctor you should take into account their background, training, specialized experience AND their patient satisfaction to ensure they are the right fit for you.
I believe that orthopaedic care should be personal, with time available to discuss your problem and the various treatment options. A comprehensive consultation includes an examination and ordering or review of diagnostic tests, including x-rays and, if warranted, MRI scans. I will often recommend initiating treatment with specific stretching and strengthening exercises, with a referral for physical therapy, and sometimes with a prescription for medication and/or shoe modifications. Many patients will find that their problems resolve with this type of treatment. Injections, including PRP (platelet-rich plasma) therapy, may be recommended for some conditions. I may recommend surgery for patients with certain specific injuries and for those whose condition does not improve.
