What People Say About Dr. Mark Via, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I wouldn't recommend Dr Via because of a 3 year nightmare. He put a knee replacement in my leg that was a wrong fit. He Dr Via, told me it was because I was still on pain meds that I suffered in pain. My new Dr told me everything that was wrong with Dr Via's work on my knee. I was walking with a twisted non functioning knee replacement that Dr Via installed incorrectly. He didn't do his studying. I hope whoever reads this will take heed.

I've been a patient of Dr Via since 2000. He has done numerous surgeries on my joints, and I have had great results. I won't see any other ortho surgeon in this area, and that includes those in the medical group he shares the offices with!
