Dr. Axtman helped me with my shoulder and I always came away smiling (even after two barbotage procedures). :) He took the time needed to explain what was going on and never talked down to me. I not only appreciate how informative he was but he had an upbeat and positive attitude.

My Mother is currently seeing him for some hip/groin issues she has been dealing with for a couple years. She even had nerves burned her back that was supposed to stop the pain and did not. So Dr. Axtman was our 2nd opinion Dr. He found the problem to not be in the back and we are now making progress with his care. He is very compassionate and knowledgeable. Great at explaining things.

Dr. Axtman is extremely knowledgeable, personable and helpful!
Dr Axtman is one of the best physicians I have ever seen. He is not only knowledgeable, but takes the time to fully explain the diagnosis. I would highly recommend him for any kind of sport injury.

Amazing diagnostician. We saw Dr. Axtman for a second opinion and he correctly diagnosed a problem that my son has been having for 2.5 years. I would trust Dr. Axtman with anything!
