Dr. Sweet was recommended to me after months of unsatisfactory results with another doctor. He ordered an MRI, which I should have had long before, and discovered a torn miniscus. I soon had surgery & can finally walk & go up & down stairs again! So happy! He did a great job and is very personable. I would gladly recommend him to anyone. Thank you, Dr. Sweet!

I had a torn rotator cuff and lots of accumulation of calcium deposits in my right shoulder. I was in a lot of pain despite trying steroid injections and physical therapy. Dr. Sweet evaluated me and recommended arthroscopic surgery. He is down to earth and explained my condition in terms that I understood. He was very patient and took his time when I had any questions. He performed the surgery and now I am 6 months post-op with full range of motion. You are awesome! Thank you so much.

I don't usually write reviews but I really want to say what a great job Dr. Sweet did on my reconstructive knee surgery. The surgery was six months ago and my knee is has never felt better. The office staff is great too! Thank you Dr. Sweet for fixing my knee so I can walk without pain and worry.

I thank God for Dr. Sweet with the way God has gifted him in orthopedic surgery. He diagnosed my shoulder problem: 1. Clearly explained what needed to be done. 2. Surgery went great 3. Recovery is going great 4. He's always available 5. He's caring 6. He took his time on my appointment visits I would highly recommend him to everyone and anyone. He is truly blessed by God as an orthopedic surgeon. Again Dr. Sweet, God bless you and your family. Al Yanez

I would more than recommend Dr Sweet... I would INSIST to any family or friends who need an orthopedic surgeon that they go to see him. He is an amazing doctor. I fractured my kneecap (patella) in to 8 pieces and holy jigsaw puzzles Batman he put it back together and I am well on to my way to recovery! Throughout this whole ordeal he has been so awesome! He is compassionate, reassuring and just puts you at ease immediately! I wish I could rate with more than 5 stars!!

I was diagnosed with a distal biceps rupture a week before Christmas 2015. Dr. Sweet immediately offer to see me when others were too busy with the Holidays. He examined me and clearly explained my situation. A week later, the day after Christmas he operated on me. The surgery was a total success! 3 months later I have full use of my hand and my arm. I highly recommend Dr. Sweet as an Orthopedic Surgeon.
