Dr Axe was courteous but also got right to the point and figured out my injury. He’s fixed me up before when I thought I’d never be 100% again, so I’m pleased that he is still available to fix my other injuries.

Highly recommend! I had strong pain in my shoulder for months and after one visit with Dr. Axe my pain was gone and has not returned! Dr. Michael Axe not only took the time to learn and listen about my chronic shoulder pain, but explained what may have caused it and preventative measures to take in the future. I was very impressed and appreciative.

He does not take the time to explain anything to you. He is not personable. In my last appointment, he was in the for 15 seconds and that is not an exaggeration. Did not ask me how my PT was going, if I felt better or anything. Gave me a shot and walked out.

Dr. Axe was incredibly attentive to the physical needs for me as a student athlete. Even with a difficult injury, Dr. Axe has made a plan for my injury and recovery that will allow me to compete in High School and at the collegiate level. His knowledge and expertise has been exceptional.

Dr. Axe was very kind with my wife who has dementia. We came to see him because she had knee pain every time she stood on her right leg. Getting responses from her is very difficult. He was able to figure out what was hurting her and after a shot (which she didn't seem to feel at all), she was able to walk without pain. We go to many doctors. We are both over 80. Dr. Axe was respectful and helped us. The staff was very kind with my wife.
