Dr Romero is fantastic! I saw him this week for a troubled knee and my experience at the entire practice and with Dr Romero was nothing short of excellent. The practice is state of the art and all of the staff are extremely helpful, professional and friendly. I was very happy that they could x-ray and do the ultrasound right there in office and Dr Romero could go through the results straight away. Dr Romero is a wealth of knowledge and answered all my questions and made me feel very comfortable.

I’ve had the opportunity to be treated by Dr. Romero on several occasions. Dr. Fishman referred me to him so he could give me an ultrasound guided injection into my torn hamstring that has been plaguing me for almost 2 years. Dr. Romero was very professional and extremely passionate about putting my needs first. I was highly pleased when he took the time to answer all of my questions and explained how he was going to treat the hamstring tear. Without a doubt, I would recommend him to everyone!??

My experience with Dr Romera far surpassed my expectations. He was not only thorough in his exam but he listened to me. He asked me questions pertinent to my situation and condition and took the time to gather all the information including medical records and then took the time to tell me what was going on and how we would proceed to get me on the road to recovery. It wasn't long before I was able to get my life back. And with therapy by a very talented and gifted staff I am doing quite well

Very efficient and thorough, he had me get a second mri because the mri that I had gotten independently was blury and questionable-appearing like surgery was maybe needed. He sent me for the second mri within 3 days and reviewed the mri results the following day. Very pleased because the second mri showed much more clearly the questionable area and it was determined that I do not need surgery after all. Thank you for squeezing my appointment in so quickly and for your wonderful bedside manner.

Dr.Romero takes his time and explains all options available for the issue . He does not do unnecessary treatments that won’t further the healing . We now have several members of our family that see Dr.Romero and would prefer driving the distance then going to a doctor that is near their home.

I was referred to Dr. Romero after I had a car accident that required rehab. His office is easy to find and the staff were friendly and prompt. The office was modern and clean. My wait was about 15 minutes. Dr. Romero was professional and spent time listening to me and discussing my treatment options. I will be returning over the next two months for rehab and rehabilitation.

Called Dr. Romero's office with an intense pain and got an appointment for the same day! Very profesional and caring. Explained what I had and the procedure with great details. Got an injection and I'm still amazed of how quickly I had no pain.

Last year I was unable to attend a 10K I had planned on running with my daughter due to a knee injury I incurred while training. Thanks to Dr. Romero, his methods, and his team, I not only expect to complete the Titan's 10K race this year, but I expect my team to win.
