Columbia, MD |
Dr. Packer was knowledgeable and easy to communicate my ankle issues with and provided me with a plan for treatment and follow up.

I had the pleasure of being under the care of Dr. Packer who diagnosed and treated me for a medial meniscus tear in my right knee. He was very caring, professional and highly knowledgeable. He was very attentive and thorough with explaining my treatment options and answered all of my questions and concerns. The level of service that I received from my initial visit though out my surgical and post-op period was outstanding. My knee feels great and I've returned to my favorite hobby, bowling.

After experiencing severe calf cramping, I was sent to Dr. Packer where he did not stop searching until he found the correct diagnosis of Popliteal Artery Entrapment. He performed surgery with Dr. Sarkar at UMMC to free up my artery which allowed me to return to play. Following my return to play, I experienced nerve pain and calf cramping again. Dr. Packer just performed another surgery with Dr. Sarkar to free up damaged nerves and a fasciotomy in my calf. His care had been incredible.

Dr Packer performed an ACL Repair last year. He is highly knowledgeable about sports medicine and understands the best procedure to use based on your activity level. I have been doing martial arts for 15 years and wanted to continue doing so. Dr Packers worked with me to identify the best graft for my needs and 1 year later, I almost a 100%. Dr Packer is through and his rehab process will require you to conservative, but it pays off in the long run with a stronger and sturdier repair.

Found Dr Packer to be very caring and professional I had a right knee surgery done and after 6 weeks of healing was able to start putting gradual weight and switch from using crutches to a cane. Knee feels and bends a great deal better than before. Great job Doc. ????
in North East, MD |
Dr. Packer recently performed arthroscopy on my knee after i was disregarded by other doctors in the area. His bedside manner was fantastic and i did not feel rushed or that i was bothering him or his staff. He was sure to explain everything, went over all the pictures, and gave realistic expectations from the surgery. My knee is healing wonderfully and I have confidence that it will help the problems I was having. Even though I had many other orthopedics closer, I am glad i saw him! Thank you
