Probably the best thing about Dr. Carr and his staff is that they genuinely care about their patients and don't herd us in and out like cattle. It's more than just a job to them. Along with their thorough knowledge and skill, this is why I'm a repeat customer!

I have had knee, ankle, shoulder and fixing to have more surgery. He is always willing to explain everything to me and he and his staff are so kind and work to find out what is going one and a way to fix it. I recommend Dr. Carr to everyone that I know. I will always use him and him alone.

The staff was very welcoming and willing to spend time to be sure I understood the procedure. Dr. Carr was very informative and explained the surgery and what i should expect. He was generous with his time and I did not feel rushed at all

I would choose to go to Dr. Carr with any knee issues I have in the future. He and his staff took time to listen to my symptoms prior to the procedure. At my post-op appointment, they took time to clearly explain the results of my procedure so that I could understand why I was feeling the way I was, and why it feels much better now.

I had been experiencing pain for several years and had seen several doctors in the area. No one could explain what was wrong much less how to resolve. Then I visited Dr, Carr. Withing a few minutes of talking about my symptoms he accurately determined what was causing my pain. Now I;m 6 months post surgery and I have my life back. Not only is Dr Carr wonderful but his entire staff is caring and helpful. I'm grateful to the whole team for their help.

Dr. Gregg Carr was the fourth specialist to evaluate a claw with my right hand, which presented itself with my smallest finger and ring finger curled, as well as weakness, numbness, and tingling in the affected fingers. I am so thankful for the quick evaluation Dr. Carr gave me. The surgery for my ulnar nerve entrapment was only 30 minutes; the recovery was simple, as long as I followed Dr. Carr's directions; and my hand presented normally within two days of the surgery.

Fantastic doctor,wonderful staff. Within minutes of reviewing my chart and x-rays, Dr. Carr alerted me to a condition that I have that creates an increased chance of meniscus tears. He took the time to review my x-rays, M.R.I., and examination results thoroughly with me to make sure I understood the information. It was interesting because another highly renowned Sports Medicine Specialist missed this diagnosis just a few years ago. I highly recommend Dr. Carr.

I have been seen at Cleveland Clinic and was told i needed a total knee replacement. Dr. Carr saw me and diagnosed me with a meniscal tear which was a much more simple surgery and my knee is doing great. He also drained my Baker's cyst, and I am doing very well now!! No more pain. He is the best Orthopedist in the United States in my opinion!

I had a meniscus tear and arthritis in my right knee. After Dr. Carr trimmed the tear and cleaned out the arthritis , my knee with 30% better. It has been 2 weeks and my knee is lot better. I can walk on it without crutch or holding on to something. Thanks Dr. Carr for the wonderful job you did. Olean Davidson

My knee pain was so severe in my right knee that I did not realize how successful the surgery I had on my left knee the year before was. I thought I was destined for a life of constant pain until after the surgery on my right knee. Three days after the surgery I was able to walk down the stairs with minimal pain. I don't have to rely on a handrail to pull myself up the stairs and to keep from falling going down the stairs. My quick recovery time has amazed my family and coworkers.
