Dr Davit is very competent, caring and kind. He reconstructed my Achilles tendon after I had seen several other surgeons give me a poor prognosis for a good outcome. A year after the surgery, the scar was completely gone, and I have no limitations. The after surgery PT is first rate as well.

Dr Davitt is a terrific physician and surgeon. I was treated for my first break in 50 yrs, a bi-malleolar ankle fracture requiring surgery with pins and a plate. He was kind, encouraging and patient with my questions and the guidance I was seeking to ensure the best possible outcome. The 2 scars are very clean and and my recovery is going very well. I highly recommend him and would see home again if needed (but sure hope not to!).

Chronic ankle pain from 2019 that escalated in the past month. I’ve been reluctant to address until after total knee replacement surgery and healing 7 months ago. I really appreciate Davitts understanding of why I waited. Nice nice doctor who listens, gave me suggestions that I must follow. A caring doctor who is willing to treat me conservatively as I heal from TKR. Great friendly staff too!

I was referred to Dr. Davitt after my hospital stay for a car accident. Such an amazing experience given the circumstances. Dr. Davitt and his staff were so caring and professional. I was in rough shape for my first appointment, but I left with a huge sense of hope. Davitt's treatment plan for my fibula fracture worked beautifully and gave me my mobility back while waited for my other injuries to heal. Thank you. Highly recommend Dr. Davitt

Dr. Davitt is the consummate professional. And, he has a 'heart' when dealing with patients – he passed bedside manner 101 with flying colors. He did an incredible job repairing my broken ankle. Would highly recommend for any lower extremity injuries. Extremely skilled, and approachable. Answered all of my questions. And, laughed at my jokes!

I am in need of an ankle replacement. I’ve put it off and gone the conservative route (podiatrist) but it’s to the point that I need something more aggressive. I have all the confidence that Dr Davitt will be able to help me, & literally get me back on my feet.

Want to thank the team in Dr DAVITT’s office. All the team works well to treat the patient with care and feelings. I had a rare invasion of an infection that was their #1 concern and took immediate action , probably saving the ankle replacement. And possibly many months of extended care.

The surgical staff is great, too, offering explanations and taking additional time to ensure that I was comfortable before going in for my procedure. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND them!
