This was my 2nd ACL reconstruction, the first time using a different doctor and the 2nd time choosing Jabara. This 2nd experience was so much better than my first one. He is a surgical wizard! With a great personality. Very thankful for his work

After 5 months with a previous Ortho who wouldn't even look at my MRI, I went for a second opinion. Everything was wrong with the previous doctor, but everything was polar opposite with Dr. Jabarra. He listened and cared about what I had to say, he saw immediately that I was in distress and for good reason. 2 complete tears in my rotator cuff as well as a almost complete tear of the biceps tendon. I spent 10 minutes and he offered 2 solutions, both required surgery. He was attentive, sensitive, professional and compassionate. I hope to never need an Orthopaedic Doctor again, but if I do, it will be him. Thanks you Doc! I am 13 weeks into recovery. All told, if I had seen him from the beginning, I would be back to work already. I still have been under his care for a shorter term than the first guy, and well on my way now to recovery. The Best! PERIOD!

I am so thankful for Dr Jabara. He is extremely gifted as a surgeon and a very compassionate person. I lost both acl’s a year apart. Dr Jabara performed reconstruction beautifully on both of them. Three months after the second surgery I am already feeling better & getting my life back. Thank you so much, Dr Jabara.

Dr Jabara has done both of my knee replacement surgeries. One in December and one in May. He is a great Dr with excellent bedside manner. He takes the time to explain everything clearly and answers all questions and concerns. One of the most personable doctors you will ever meet. I highly recommend him!
