Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Axelrod "Dr. Axelrod believes in a conservative-first approach to care. Dr. Axelrod works with every patient to exhaust all methods of conservative care before suggesting surgery.If a condition does not respond to conservative therapies, we can consider additional treatment options that may include minimally invasive procedures or surgery. Over the last 35 years, Dr. Axelrod has assisted his patients through their entire road of rehabilitation and recovery. He alone sees his patients and follows them along their journey back to functionality, mobility and health."

Dr. Axelrod expressed the proper amount of concern for my shoulder problem. He administrated a shot and confirmed that I had no concerns. Both my wife and I are very comfortable with him

Dr. Axelrod is the best. He or staff were always available to answer questions. He did an excellent job on a knee replacement for me. Dr. Axelrod visited me in the hospital each day and was able to meet my needs with the recovery process. Very professional.

Recent total knee. I felt I had good care from Dr. A. He gave me clear information, answered questions and was very willing to accomodate any special requests/needs. He was *very* appropriately cautious about post op infection.
