      My knee has bothered me for years and i had exhausted all treatment approaches. Dr. Axelrod spent the time with me to discuss knee joint replacement and all other options. Would highly recommend.

      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.

      Very Satisfied with Dr. Axelrod as my knee specialist. Personable, honest, knowledgeable, and took the time to discuss my situation. Didn't feel rushed at all. He is good at time management, but doesn't rush patient care. As stated before Dr Axelrod was open and honest about all treatment options for my knee and answered any question(s) I asked. Very confident with his recommendations and comfortable as to his concern and treatment for my medical condition (knee).

      Dr. Axlelrod released me back to work after fourteen days without knowing the extent of my injuries. My workers comp got cut in half. He informed WC insurance there was no evidence of a rotator cuff tear. After three months of pain and unable to work he ordered an MRI which showed multiple tears of tendons.off the bone. His care for me could not have been any worse. I had to switch doctors. My next doctor ordered emergency surgery.

      Had a horrible experience with shoulder surgery. Did an open surgery, didn't send me to PT in time after and ended up with a frozen shoulder. Rude, condescending bed side manner, couldn't take the time to read my PT charts. Ended up going to Crouse for another surgery.

      Dr Axelrod speaks to you in a confident way, not an arrogant way. He listens, advises and always asks for your input so that together you can reach a decision as to how to proceed with your care. He will do whatever he can to make you comfortable and prolong surgery until it is absolutely necessary. I travel over 50 miles to his office and find it is worth it.
