Patient Comments (3)
Unprofessional, short in his responses. He spent more time commenting on his personal opinion that there was more behind the damage, than just the 'damage' - strongly implying I was either not in pain or feeling too sorry for myself. Inappropriately tucked in comments under the disguise of 'that's just my opinion'. Had no professional comment on what was actually going on with the injury/how to alleviate continued pain. Will seek second opinion. Would never recommend his lack of professionalism.

I tore my meniscus in my left knee during an injury on the job. I have to commend Dr Claveria and his staff. From getting me in on a day's notice to getting both the MRI and the surgery done in a matter of just over a week, they did a GREAT job getting me the care I needed really fast. I have to thank Mary and Diana. They made sure everything got done fast. Had the surgery this morning. The horrible pain in my knee is gone. I'm even walking, with a limp, but walking w/o crutches. THANKS!!

Worst Dr I've ever been to. Took little interest in my issue and spent a grand total of 3 minutes with me 2 of which were filling out paperwork. Told me nothing of what he thought or what I can to help. Told me to get an MRI and come back in two weeks that's all the information he gave me. He didn't even get my name right and I have an easy common name that's four letters long and on my chart..
