Dr. DesJardins treated my son, who had a sports injury. He was knowledgeable and thorough, and his team is top notch. We were taken to physical therapy, then X-rays, in the same building, with no waiting. He was kind, compassionate, and concerned about outcomes. He even called the next day, personally, to check on my son. One of the best medical professionals we have ever dealt with.

I saw Dr. DesJardins after being referred to him by my Aunt back in 2017. I was a CNA at the time and I had injured my shoulder. I was seen by him and he talked to me like I was stupid and said there was nothing wrong with my shoulder. I got a 2nd opinion, turns out I actually have a SLAP tear in my left shoulder. I will NEVER go to Commonwealth Orthopedics again.

Wow. I have several medical issues at 18 years old, and I've been going to different doctors (constantly) for the last 8 years for things such cholesterol, acne, ankle surgery, calf pain, vitamin deficiencies, etc. Throughout all these experiences- I have had countless amount of doctors & not even one compares to Dr. DesJardins. He listens, he takes his time, and you can tell that he genuinely cares for his patients. Words cannot express my amazement.
