Outstanding doctor/surgeon
I saw Dr. Economedes for a 2nd prosthetic knee infection as a new patient. I could not have asked for a more caring, conscientious, meticulous and concerned professional to help me with solutions to my old problems. I highly recommend him to anyone facing knee replacement, etc. . 3 wks after surgery, I can walk without help, my incision is doing better than either of my old, previous surgeries with another surgeon. I am very satisfied my my surgery done by Dr. Economedes and & his team, and with my ongoing recovery.

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!

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.
