Care Philosophy

As a provider I treat my patients how I expect to be treated myself. I listen and after the patient has given me all of the needed information, we work together to decide on the best course of treatment. At Optim Orthopedics, we know you're not yourself when even just one part of you is hurt. Because in orthopedics, everything is connected: bones, joints, ligaments, and cartilage. We're connected too. Our doctors cover every bone in the body and we work together as a team for our patients. We call our approach - Combined Strength, and we use it to get you back to you.Read more

Was a new patient and he spent only a few minutes before telling me to go for the knee for surgery. Whoa !!!. He was in quite a hurry. Receptionists where not friendly either. Moves too fast for me.
