I went in with a problem with my elbow. Dr. Ark explained in a very easy to understand way what the problem was as well as the steps to alleviate it. He was thorough and made me feel comfortable. He took time with explanations and I didn’t feel rushed. I would not hesitate to see him again should the need arise.

From the moment I met Dr. Ark on the day I broke my ankle, I felt absolute confidence that he would fix this serious problem. He always explained all the information and what was necessarily required. The surgery went precisely as expected and my progress went as planned. All office visits were on time and the office staff was very pleasant and efficient. I highly recommend Dr. Ark to anyone that should require ankle surgery.

He’s a wonderful doctor. I had seen a hand doctor concerning the same problem. That doctor basically ignored my problem. Dr Arc prescribed a brace which eliminated my problem. I would highly recommend him
