Dr. Hewitt has been treating my mother for tendonitis in both of her knees for the past two years. He's extremely knowledgeable, patient, and concise. I can't appreciate him enough for taking the time to explaining everything to us, particularly to my mom because language is a barrier for her. I would recommend Dr. Hewitt to anyone who needs orthopedic care.
