    Dr. Borden has worked on me on two occasions He is professional, direct, and showed me on the MRI and X-Rays what my injuries were and the fix. I have always felt at ease having him do my surgeries. Add to this a wonderful staff that help me navigate insurance, pre-op, etc., and Physical therapy @ Evolution Sports medicine and I could not have had a better experience.

    Dr. Borden is unethical. I trusted him to make medical decisions for me, yet rushed me into surgery. In addition, he advised me to participate in a study at "no cost," but later found that he charged my insurance thousands of dollars. Any ethical doctor would tell his patients the true costs of this study, but Dr. Borden was too money hungry to fully disclose all of the financial implications of the study.

    He spent 3 minutes talking to me, and rushed out while I was still talking to him when I had scheduled 30 minute appointment w/ him. He put his hand in my face and told me to shut up when I asked him about treatment options. He told me to wait to talk to him after he did my XRAY. Then KIM VARGAS in their office dropped the ball by her own admission and forgot to submit pre auth for the MRI the doctor had ordered to my insurance company until the day of, and couldnt get the MRI done bc of her.

    Dr Borden is OUTSTANDING. He repaired my patella tendon in April 2016. This repair was necessary due to a botched surgery from Dr Brad Thomas. Dr Borden exercises care and due diligence. His staff is excellent. My knee continues to improve and his therapist John Finn is terrific. Recommend highly.

    Dr. Borden, John in P.T., and the whole staff were great in helping me deal with my locked shoulder. My surgery was almost one year ago and I feel great despite how badly I was damaged. Dr. Borden's microabrasion approach was obviously successful as I am back to swimming and yoga. I can even sleep on the shoulder again! John was awesome in P.T. bringing me back to condition quickly. Thanks to Dr. B and the whole staff.

    He did surgery on my Knee on may 2015. He fixed my ACL with my patellar tendon fixed the tear I had on my meniscus and tightened my MCL. I am very happy with the job today I am 7 months out and going to start playing soccer again. His staff and physical therapist are amazing and I feel great. He is very helpful and caring.
