I have had two conditions which Dr.Raphael addressed and I could not be happier with the care and attention given me. He and his staff were professional and caring in every aspect of my treatment. I would not hesitate to give him the highest recommendation offered.

Dr. Raphael understands sports injuries and was able to relieve my pain in a short period of time, after xrays. He answered my questions in great detail and has referred me to another doctor for additional consultation. If needed to visit again I would request Dr. Raphael for my initial visit.
