I really liked Dr Karageanes, he was good at figuring out what was going on with my shoulder, exercises taught by his therapist were exactly what I needed! So glad I found him.

Dr. K took care of our daughter during her volleyball career from 5th grade through college. He does a great job. Now he's taking care of me and my aging knees! Thanks Dr. K
