had an appointment with Dr Kaar and he only talked to me for 10 minutes without doing an exam. Did not knock before coming in, which was embarrassing - the PA had my changing in to my shorts and he walked in with no privacy for me. my room was across from the main desk with patient standing around who looked my direction then he proceeded to tell me I was too old for orthopedic surgery, that he was not wasting his time. I thought he was very unprofessional and will not go back

Dr. Kaar performed surgery on my left achilles tendon, which I had ruptured. During our first consultation, Dr. Kaar made me feel confident about his ability to repair this injury. He answered all my questions and the pros and cons of not having surgery versus having surgery. My surgery was performed on 2/2/17 and went very well. I had no post-op problems such as swelling or infection. The surgery healed quickly and my physical therapy went well. Dr. Kaar is highly recommended.

I had an ACL reconstruction with Scott and the process has been very easy. His schedule fit my needs and helped the recovery process.

I would recommend Dr. Kaar to anyone who needs orthopedic surgery! He is a professional in his field as well as personable with his patients. Today was my last visit with him and I left thanking him so much for resolving my knee problem and repairing my meniscus. I hope to never see a surgeon again but if I need to, I will be sure to come back to Dr. Kaar.

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!

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!
