He was running late from surgery, but I went in on time and got xrays while he was coming to the office. He was solicitous of my well being and explained my symptoms as being the norm for post surgery.

Absolutely! He's a very personable doctor and he truly listens! I was especially pleased with the improvement in timeliness of this visit. I arrived early and they took me 10 minutes BEFORE my appointment and after x-rays and a 1-on-1 with the doctor, I was out of there in 30 minutes!

Met with Dr. Economedes last week. Seemed very competent and knowledgeable. I will have to wait until December to see him again, but in the meantime I am scheduled for an MRI. He mentioned he wanted to make sure my issue wasn't "something else" besides arthritis. The MRI will identify the issue more clearly. I appreciate the cautious approach; but at the same time, I am still suffering the same symptons until the MRI is done.

Dr. E replaced my hip in 2017 and I have been a completely satisfied client/patient ever since. The Doctor is thorough, personable and friendly. His competence is above reproach, and he is honest without being blunt.

Did not relate well to patient. Very cold in his approach to encourage patient to get physical therapy. Told patient he would not like PT and it would be very hurtful,-No compassionate to the patient the patient has been experiencing for a long time. Needed to hear a more positive communication to procede with PT.

The Doctor is awesome! He has helped me with several issues, is knowledgeable and professional. The lost star is because it took his staff three weeks to call me after my Primary submitted a referral!!?? I hope this is not a trend, but I will continue to visit for the exceptional care.
