Dr. Raphael came very highly recommended by my primary care physician and I could not agree more!!! He has spent the time to explain to me what I have wrong and the options that are available. He has great bedside manner and very easy to talk to. I never felt rushed! His staff is always kind and courteous and I left the text messages and emails for reminders for appointments! Thank you very much SOS for making myself and my family feel very comfortable!

Dr. Raphael repaired my knee. He was a pleasure to deal with. Very down to earth.....listens well....spends time with you to insure your needs are met! Hopefully I don't have to have further surgeries, but if I did, he would be my first choice!!
