I went to get a steroid shot in my shoulder and find out what was going on with my back. Dr Aron is a wonderful and caring Dr. I was pleased with my visit. I highly recommend him.

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!

Outstanding service from start to finish. Knee surgery for meniscus tear and therapy afterward got me back to a good place so I can resume regular exercise.

I injured my knee 5 years ago and it caused me to quit playing sports, quit running, and change my career. I became quite depressed from dealing with these changes for so long and the constant day to day pain. I've seen 5 different doctors for my knee and had two prior knee surgeries before seeing Dr. Aaron. Every one of them I'd seen prior to him confidently told me they knew how to fix it, yet none of them actually did. All the surgeries performed by the other doctors never fixed the problem. I had grown distrusting of doctors, but Dr. Aaron's bedside manner was so comforting that I decided to take one last chance with someone I felt I could trust. Dr. Aaron just performed knee surgery on me 13 days ago and HE COMPLETELY FIXED THE PROBLEM. My knee hasnt felt this good in so many years. Dr. Aaron listens intently, makes you feel comfortable, doesnt rush you, provides valuable information, diagnoses accurately, and best of all, delivers results that far exceed expectations.

Dr. Aaron is a superstar as far as being as thorough and thoughtful with his care recommendations. He intently listens and gives you the time you need to convey your issue or issues. He is definitely one of my favorite physicians I have ever worked with.
