A few years ago Dr. Geary repaired two ruptured tendons in my left quadriceps. After subsequently losing a tissue sample from my knee which would have indicated a staph infection, I ended up admitted to the hospital. They apologized to my wife. I'm pretty sure they thought I would die. They hurried me out of the hospital as soon as they could. When they told me it was time to go home I questioned them. I hadn't even had a bowel movement yet.

I have seen Dr Geary for 5 years for knee problems. He repaired a torn meniscus in 2014 and I was very pleased. I had the same surgery on the other knee in 2012 by another dr but was not as nearly as pleased. Dr Geary start PT the next day and continued for several weeks. The other dr had not PT at all. I am getting ready to have knee replacement on both knee and I will only let Dr Geary do this surgery. I have recommended him to many others and would recommend him to anyone with knee problems.

Dr. Geary is a very skilled surgeon and has outstanding bedside manner. He does very thorough pre-op analysis and also does a great job communicating details about the diagnosis and expectations for post-op therapy and recovery. Dr. Geary is the finest doctor that I have ever interacted with and I could not recommend him any more highly.

I saw Dr. Geary today for shoulder pain due to a rotator cuff injury. He asked me questions to determine the level of discomfort I was in but EVERY time I answered him, to explain what I was experiencing, he would interrupt me before I could finish!I had questions which he answered but it was obvious he was in a hurry, which was an insult to me. Not only did I have to suffer with shoulder pain for 3 weeks while waiting for my appointment, but I waited over an hour to be seen by him!
