Dr. Stefanides treated me for a knee condition. His staff is always on point and I got my new MRI approved on the first visit. I had 2 previous surgeries by other physicians, and had persistent pain. Dr. Stefanides performed the third operation on my knee, and i am finally pain free! Thank you...more

A doctor that listens to the patient, he is very articulate and I am more informed and understand my ailment after his explanation. Excellent bedside manners but above all he is a great surgeon.
