Dr. Stefanides is an amazing Doctor, he is very patient and kind. He takes him time to listen to his patients concerns and to set a recovery plan. He puts his patients first. He has helped me recover from a car accident injury and I know that he can help you too. I truly recommend him for anyone's orthopedic needs.

My daughter received an X-ray from Urgent Care and I wasn't confident in the reading so a doctor friend of mine referred me to Dr. Stefanides. She's an athlete and needed to be seen right away. His assistant got me in the next day, and navigated me through the whole process, including an off-site MRI. I have never received such stellar service from a health care provider. The doctor called me as soon as he received the results, instead of waiting for a follow up visit. I highly recommend!

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 Dr. Stefanides.

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.

Great doctor. I tore my ACL and meniscus and I was apple to get a surgery date and after that with 3 weeks I was able to walk without crutches. He is very helpful during rehab and has great points to help you get back to sports. I recommend him to anyone with knee problems.
