Hackensack, NJ |
I would recommend Dr. Sink to anyone and everyone who is facing orthopedic surgery. After ten years of waiting for a doctor to listen to and believe me, Dr. Sink was the first one who did. As a dancer, it was of the utmost importance that the horrible chronic pain that I was in come to an end. After my first visit with Dr. Sink, he had a clear diagnosis that I was happy with because it wasn't just brushing my pain off as tendonitis and made a plan to heal me. He truly gave me my life back.
