Patient Comments (5)
Dr. D'Hemecourt is one of the most respectful people I have met in the field of sports medicine. Every time I went in for an appointment, he heard me out and listened carefully. I felt completely at ease talking to him, and I honestly enjoyed going to my appointments knowing I wholeheartedly trusted my doctor. He is not only a great doctor with an exceptional knowledge base, but he is also a very genuine and kind person. I sincerely recommend him to family and friends.

Always significantly late, twice we waited 4 hours. His assistant is a nightmare with his schedule, and changed our appt date without notifying us. He stands around the office flirting with the nurse and fellows and leaves patients waiting. More interested in promoting his PRP injections (which are not covered by insurance) than In providing care to his patients. Horrible bedside manner, cocky and rude!

I was referred to Dr.d'Hemmencourt by Dr.Micheli for a ruptured Achilles (70% tear). He suggested PRP therapy and be patient and follow his pt regime. I had nothing to lose but wasn't too hopeful and was I serious pain. Eight months later had great range of motion and strength- 2 years and it feels like new and the ultrasound shows about a 98% heal rate. I'm still a little stunned and now want my knees done when I can afford it.
I has been in constant pain for the past 2 years. I had never experienced any sort of trama or accident, however the pain in my upper back was excruciating. I had seen doctor after doctor and was finally sent to Dr. d'Hemecourt. He met with me, found the exact spot of my pain and gave me a cortisone injection into one of my facet joints. Instantly my suffering was over, it is the next day now and I am extremely sore but he said its common. Only reason for 4 stars is that we waited over 2 hours.
