I went to Dr. Garon for pain in my wrist. He gave me a shot to see if we could fix the issue without surgery. I am happy to say that the shot helped and I am back to my yoga and pilates classes.

Dr. Garon takes plenty of time, explains everything well, even draws diagrams to help with understanding the surgery. Highly recommend. His staff treated me like family and there were plenty of hugs when I left today.... :) First rate experience.
