Writing this today 2/13/17 from MOST. My wife popped something in her knee this morning and cannot walk. We just arrived at MOST after making appointment via phone as we drove over as she needs to be seen today. Going to be seen shortly. Great place. Previously, for me Dr. Gilbert looked at my foot and diagnosed immediately. Did x-ray to make sure and he was spot on. Easy to schedule appointments. Folks know you after 2nd time there. The team is excellent.

I found Dr. Gilbert to be friendly, caring and paid attention to my complaints. I was especially impressed by his credentials and knowledge of orthopedic issues. I would recommend him to absolutely anyone who has an orthopedic issue and assure them that they are in the hands of a highly trained and confident orthopedic surgeon...

Having a doctor that cares and has a great bedside manner is important. Dr. Gilbert is that. Plus he has a great team that cares too. I did not need surgery, but he got me up and around with some physical therapy.

I would highly recommend Dr. Gilbert to family and friends. I went in for an injury, once I came in the front desk staff was very welcoming. The wait was not long, they got me in quickly and the medical assistants were friendly as well. Dr. Gilbert was nice and thorough, he took his time with me and answered all concerns and questions. I left satisfied with my experience.

Dr. Gilbert is not only caring but so patient in answering whatever I may ask him. He is just a phenomenal doctor in every way. He has treated me for several injuries and I recommend him regularly to my friends, many of whom have already seen him and were very happy. Several of my family members have also seen him and their results were also great. I wouldn't see anyone else for my orthopaedic care.

Dr. James Gilbert is a blessing in my life.  Following a botched surgery by another orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Gilbert developed a surgical plan and course of treatment that has alleviated my pain and discomfort, and has set me on a path to full health.  His entire team is extremely courteous and professional and its obvious that the wellness and satisfaction of their patients is a primary goal.  I highly recommend Dr. Gilbert and the Massachusetts Avenue Surgery Center.  Dr. Gilbert is outstandi
