Dr Des Jardins does something that most drs don’t do today. He listens. We had a 10 minute conversation were he patiently gathered all appropriate info, formulated a treatment plan, and only then did he record notes for the medical file. I’ve trusted him with my care and my children’s care for almost 15 years. Glad to have him as my ortho dr.

Dr. DesJardins listened to my issues, asked about my history and addressed the immediate problem. Very professional and thorough. I was very happy with the results. I went back in 2 weeks for a followup where we talked about future options for my knees. I have faith in his medical advice and have a path to follow.

Knee pain. They took X Rays before I saw the doctor so he had that as a starting point. He wheeled in an ultrasound machine to get another perspective. He listened, explained what he was doing and why, and then explained his diagnosis and what was next. He showed me the X Ray and MRI scans and pointed out items. All in all, I felt very relaxed, and confident in his work. And you get a fist bump at the end. FROM A DOCTOR! Good guy, good doctor.
