Patient Comments (5)
in St. Louis, MO |
After dislocating and fracturing my elbow, I made an appointment with Dr. Kaar. They were able to get me in quickly for an initial appointment (I was in a lot of pain). Dr. Kaar is very friendly and knowledgeable and was also able to get me in for surgery in a reasonable amount of time. He even called me the night before the surgery to check in! I am very close to having full range of motion back at my elbow joint. Staff and residents in the office are also great. Highly recommend Dr. Kaar!
in WASHINGTON MO |
I was having shoulder problems when I was referred to Dr. Kaar. I was expecting to have to have surgery, but Dr. Kaar recommended 6 weeks of physical therapy. I was a little skeptical but I went and he was right, it helped...I feel great. I was able to return to work. Everyone there was nice and very helpful. I would definitely recommend Dr. Kaar.

Dr. Kaar is an amazing doctor and phenomenal surgeon that truly cares about your wellbeing as a patient . Dr. Kaar and his staff are always upbeat and happy to see you as a patient. I've never had a doctor personally call me the night before surgery to see how I am doing and if I had questions. Dr. Kaar is a great doctor that I highly recommend!

Dr. Scott Kaar has a wonderful bedside manor. He is very thorough. He spent much time with me. Talked over my problems. Put me in therapy for 8 weeks then wants me to come back and see him so we can discuss if things are better or further options. He is very caring!
