Caring, professional, and knowledgeable. Dr Paksima takes the time to explore all treatment options prior to surgery if it’s ultimately warranted. I would highly recommend him.

Dr. Paksima has been amazing from my first appointment with him up until now. He has great bedside manner, is very professional, and genuinely caring. He had my trust when he said he would do his best to save my finger from the injury I had and the outcome has been better than what I could imagine. He spends time with his patients and is very meticulous about his work and this is very appreciative on the patients’ end. I am so glad I am being seen by Dr. Paksima because the treatment pre and post op has been a great experience. His PA, Monica, the OT, MA (Jonathan), and his clerk at the front desk make a great team and are very pleasant. I am more than happy than I have been seeing Dr. Paksima and I HIGHLY recommend anyone to him with orthopedic needs.

Dr. Paksima is a highly skilled and caring doctor/surgeon. From my very first visit, I knew I was in the best of care. He has a great bedside manner, fully explained (in lay terms) my wrist fracture and what I should expect after surgery. His honest approach to my healing process gave me every bit of confidence in him. His PA (Liz) is equally as professional and caring. His wonderful energy and honesty was refreshing in an often cold approach to patients care. I HIGHLY recommend Dr Paksima. Excellent doctor!

Dr. Paksima is a great doctor who gave a thorough analysis and diagnosis of my hand. I wish I went to him sooner to prevent the hand damage. The only thing to do is prevent further loss in hand.
