This office was very welcoming from the beginning. Dr. Popovitz topped off the experience with his professionalism and his calm demeanor. He made sure that he addressed all of my concerns during the visit which has not really happened to me before. I’m used to seeing a doctor, being prescribed something and then sent on my way with my unanswered questions. Everything is clear with Dr. Popovitz. I highly recommend him and his wonderful staff!

Dr. Popovitz is the best orthopedist surgeon! He is very informative, reliable, and has shown a great amount of empathy for my knee injury. He goes out of his way to communicate through the process of presurgery and post surgery. I am very thankful to have Dr. Popovitz as my doctor and appreciate his support through my recovery. Hope this review is helpful for you as a patient looking for the best solution for your injury and surgery outcome. I highly recommend Dr. Popovitz!

Dr. Popovitz I have know for 17 years, I couldn’t recommend a better Doctor, surgeon, and a human being. He performed an ACL and meniscus’s surgery on my daughter, and an arthroscopic surgery on my right elbow to repaired the ligament. I highly recommend Dr. Popovitz

Dr. Popovitz was very informative and caring pre and post surgery. Although not much time is spent speaking with him directly, when the opportunity did arise, questions were answered and minds put at ease. Most details were received from the PA. Also, the front desk in person also very attentive but over the phone it’s hard to reach someone.

I highly recommend Dr. Popovitz. He is a fantastic surgeon and human being! I cannot say enough wonderful things about him. He discussed all of my options prior to our deciding that surgery would be the solution. No more limping or having my knee going side-to-side as it did before the surgery. I am very grateful! The staff in his office is great. They have gone above and beyond, making sure all aspects of my surgery, recovery, and office visits have gone well. A definite 5 in my book!!!

I had shoulder surgery recently and was luckiest enough to find Dr POPOVITZ to direct me on what to do and perform the surgery. Everything went smoothly including the pre-surgery process. Dr POPOVITZ was very informative on what to expect during and post surgery. The surgery was a success and recovery is going as planned. I highly recommend Dr. POPOVITZ and his highly qualified staff.

I couldn't ask for a better doctor. I had major rotator cuff damage and Dr Popovitz did an excellent job repairing it. His diagnosis was right on and he explained the condition and the procedure in great detail. His guidance on the physical therapy was extremely accurate. Thank you Dr. Popovitz.
