Dr. Rees was drawn to Orthopaedics because he feels a great sense of satisfaction in seeing his patients get back on their feet and return to their normal life. He feels that there is more orthopaedic surgery these days because many people want to remain active as they get older."

Spent 90 seconds with me. Never touched my knee. Sent intern to give me a cortisone injection which helped for about 48 hours. Billed Medicare $900. I went to another doctor and I actually had a torn meniscus which required surgery.

I saw Dr.Rees for a knee problem. I had seen two other ortho docs with little satisfaction. Dr. Rees was spot on and i left his office very satisfied. I continue to see him for cortisone injections. I cannot say enough positive things about him.
