Monroe, LA |
The best doctor ever! My two hip replacement surgeries went very smoothly. I was able to get them done in a timely manner after my initial visit with Dr. Axelrad. I would highly recommend him to anyone. I trusted him and he didn't disappoint! He listened to my questions and fears before surgery and answered the questions which put my fears to rest. He never seemed in a hurry and now following my surgeries, I can't really tell I had the surgeries because my hips feel and function normally!

I'm a 53 year old women veteran. A doctor had messed up surgery on my arm. My ulna radius bones were broken n wrist. Dr. Axrlrad is the very best doctor I've ever had to operate on me. He fixed my arm and was kind and caring he and his staff. D.M
