Dr Aaron is a wonderful doctor. He lets you know that he cares and he is concerned about your well being. He listens to you and I have never heard him tell anyone or my self that you needs to lose weight , instead he treats you and give you options and makes you feel confident that you will get better because he works deligently to help you. He has a great staff working along beside him too. Thank you Doctor Aaron.

Dr. Don Aaron and his staff have taken good care of me throughout the last 12.5 years. Dr. Aaron, assisted by Madonna, recently repaired my Rotator Cuff. After hearing people talk about their experiences with this same surgery, I expected the worst. I am happy to say my experience was so much better than I could have anticipated. I realize everyone heals differently, but without Dr. Aaron & Madonna’s expertise, I feel my surgery could have turned out so much differently. OPTIM Therapy is definitely making sure I am progressing nicely! Thank you Gary and Brian.

Dr. Aaron is the best! He is extremely knowledgeable and caring and takes the time to discuss your diagnosis and answer all questions. He has operated on both of my shoulders and my elbow and I trust him completely. When my son started having knee problems while he was away at college, I made him drive three hours to see Dr. Aaron rather than a Dr closer to him Dr. Aaron is amazing!
