My wife & I have known Dr. Mark Kamaleson for approx. 20 years when he was with Chatham Orthopedics. After he moved to Optim Orthopedics we moved with him. He is an extremely knowledgeable, caring, sensitive & very professional. Once he makes a diagnosis of a problem if PT is an option, it is recommended instead of surgery. We have both gone to PT many times which is somewhat painful but it always ends up rectifying the problem & we still do them to this day.

Dr. Kamalison performed rotator cuff surgery Feb 1st. I had 2 large tears which he took care of and inserted 4 pins to secure. Pain was always very minimal and now after 3 months I'm progressing well PT. Dr. K was and is along with his knowledgeable staff of PA's, available for any questions or concerns I might have. I recommend him highly for any orthopedic surgery.
Bedside Manner is disrespectfull. He misdiagnosed 4 Back injures, one year has passed due to his lack of listening I have nerve damage. He was rude and spent about 3 minutes with me after making me wait 2 hours for MRI Results. Front desk said he triple books because he only has 3 hours in that location. Arrives late always. I'll never go back to him! He's careless.

Was supposed to be referred to another doctor for physical therapy. Two months and 4 calls later....Still waiting for a call back for referral. Problem was diagnosed but no solutions or follow up treatment offered.

Dr. Kamaleson has operated on my hand once and then two fingers, one just this month. He is one of the best hand surgeons in Savannah and I believe he spends the right amount of time with me. His staff is great.
in Beaufort, SC |
His bedside manner was awful. After waiting for over an hour past my appointment time I went back and for the all of five minutes he saw me he pushed so hard down on my wrist where I just told him was extremely painful I screamed and told him not to touch me. NEVER GOING BACK TO HIM!
