in Princeton, NJ |
Dr.Ark is very compassionate and explains everything thoroughly.
in Daphne, AL |
I had carpal tunnel surgery done last November (2016) on my right hand. I still have pain, hard scar tissue, and can't use my hand the way I used it before the surgery. Dr. Ark did not mention PT post surgery at all. He's always rushing. After complaining about pain I finally received a PT prescription 3 months post surgery. Dr. Ark is very inaccessible once he's done with surgery. My messages for him and his assistant weren't answered.I traded numbness for pain. I wouldn't recommend him.

in Monroe Township, NJ |
Compassionate and knowledgable, would highly recommend.
in Spotswood, NJ |
I'm impressed most with the fact that I wasn't pushed or forced into unnecessary surgery. He allowed this to heal on its own naturally. And I also felt that he saw it through from the beginning until now very exceptionally.
