Dr Jayanthi was wonderful. He listened to my concerns, explained things very thoroughly, was patient and not rushed and answered all of my multiple questions. It was great to find an orthopedic who was not rushing to do surgery on my affected problem but to try conservative methods first. The office was professional, efficient, and on time and the support staff was professional, knowledgeable and kind. I would highly recommend Dr Jayanthi and his team for any Sports Medicine needs.

Dr Jayanthi is very meticulous about understanding the full picture before providing a determination. It's obvious he has a passion for his practice and expertise. I had seen multiple physicians prior to visiting with Dr Jayanthi and he ended up being the one to best decipher my issues, and provided me with a defined course of action for rehabilitation.
