Today for the first time I met Dr. Poovendran and I felt that he rushed too much when consulting me. I was left with questions. I had to ask the nurse to run after and get the answers. The clinic was full of patients. I did not have to wait. Having acute pain, I found the staff not so much friendly/helpful/considerate as expected when I asked to lend the walker.

I am very satisfied with the care and treatment that I have been receiving from Dr. Poovendran. He is attentive and I never feel like he doesn’t have time to discuss any questions or concerns that I have. His staff is also friendly and easy to deal with. I would definitely recommend him.

We could not be more happy with the excellent service and care provided by Dr. Poovendran and his entire staff. They made my son feel so comfortable and relieved any concerns we had about his broken arm. Their service was fast and efficient. We can't thank them enough and are so happy they are there for us.

Dr. Poovendran is an outstanding orthopaedic physician. He used PRP to help me recover from tennis elbow without surgery.

I’m a PTA and strength and conditioning coach. 3 years ago I tore my Left ACL. Therapy alone made a great improvement as I was able to regain my strength and mobility. Recently my knee started to bother me. My coworker recommended PRP as an option to improvement my current symptoms. After having the PRP on my aMCL and joint space my knee discomfort improvement significantly allowing me to spring at top speed and jump with no resedual pain. I recommend Dr. Proovendra for your pre/post recovery
