Dr Symbas is a great all around doctor and surgeon. He gets to know his patients and their lifestyles so he can put them on the best and most holistic route to recovery. The staff at his office is as friendly as him and their new location is clean, bright and very technically advanced

I absolutely love Dr. Symbas. He is an amazing doctor. I saw him for several years for treatment of my shoulder and finally had to break down and had surgery. He did not push me and we did not do the surgery until it was absolutely necessary. I wish every doctor were as awesome as he is.
