First of all, I like to say that it was great having Dr. Padalecki as my Orthopedic. I have asked around and spoke to numerous people about Dr. Padalecki and everyone loved him. No one has anything bad to say about his work. Nothing but great comments and reviews. I am extremely satisfied with his work. Setting the appointment to get the operation done was only a few weeks out. My recovery time was minimal. Scars was minimal. Thank you for the great and successful operation. Greg

I felt rushed with my previous orthopedist so tried Dr. Padalecki. I felt comfortable and at ease with him. I forgot to ask him some questions I had but he actually brought the issues up on his own and answered what I had been curious about. He gave very helpful suggestions. He was funny and warm, and re: a previous reviewer, I like his hair! :-).

Over the course of a few months, he took the extra effort to treat my difficult diagnosis, and was willing to experiment and think outside the box. I was grateful for his analytical skills. And yes, he sorta needs a new haircut.

Dr. Padalecki is a great Dr. that I trusted immediately upon meeting him. He is knowledgable, personable, and I feel very safe and well managed under his care. I was treated by another orthopedic Dr. in the ER over the weekend and could not wait to get back to Dr. Padalecki even though I'd only seen him once previously. This guy is down to earth, easy to converse with, and knows what he is doing. I would highly recommend him. Kimberly B

Dr. Padalecki was fantastic. His experience and technique to repair my separated shoulder was nothing shy of a miracle for me. After 2 years of excruciating pain from the initial injury snowboarding, I finally got to the point of seeking out an orthopedic specialist. He clearly explained and defined his technique, and within weeks, surgery was done and I was on the road to rehab. 3 years later, my shoulder remains pain free and I have 100% of my mobility back. I have referred 3 people to him.
