Dr. Axe is a highly knowledgeable and skilled doctor.

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.

Great treatment
in Newark, DE |
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.
