I had arthroscopic knee surgery to repair a torn meniscus. The surgery went well and the knee is much improved. The efficiency of the office staff could be better.

The receptionist are totally rude and no one knows what is going in that office. Dr likover doesn't exactly seem to care much about address the problems that I had with my herniated disc and now after having to schedule appointments . One time they cancelled my appointment and didn't even tell me so after packing up both of my small children ( 2 kids under 2) by myself and driving there they told me oh we cancelled your apt. No one even called me before. Terrible office. Don't waste your time!!!

Bad,,,,bad,,,,bad office!!!! they give us appointment at 3:45 and they didn't let us enter till 5:15 Dr.spent 2 minutes asking where are we from!!!and push my hands as a kind of examination lol,,, and tell us to go to other doctor specialize with upper back!!!! Cause he specialized with lower back!!!!

This doctor must have missed taking the Hippocratic Oath or if he did, he must not understand that the oath means he will uphold the highest ethical standards when treating patients along with treating them to the best of his ability. Since he sold his expertise to the highest bidder, it came at the price of failing to evaluate his patient's medical condition while accepting an expert payment from a corporation. I would NOT recommend this doctor to anyone.

Dr. Likover presents himself with much confidence which I unfortunately succumbed to. At the age of 49 yo I need a total knee replacement. I have had nothing but trouble with it since. I was reassured at each visit that what I was experiencing was normal with my history of bad knees. I am 2 years post-op and have experienced SI problems due to my surgery leg now being longer. I have daily knee pain and swelling and instability with my tibia shifting medially and laterally. BEWARE!!
