      In 2001, Dr. Athens doggedly pursued the cause of my wife's extreme back pain that no one could figure out, and which had left her in a wheel chair. Dr. Athens listened intently to everything she said, and was very reassuring. Not only did he figure out the problem, but the surgery he performed has left her with no back problems ever since. Two days ago, on July 20th, 2016, Dr. Athens replaced my right hip. Today, I am writing this review from home, after taking a brief walk outside!!!

      Had a terrible experience with him. Had a bad surgery, Had to have a manipulation. Never had good range with surgery. Had to have the same knee re done 2 years later. Still was never done right. Then went back to see him he steered me in a different direction. Blamed me for the messy situation. Accused me of injuring myself. Then blamed it on spinal stenosis. Very unprofessional. Would never recommend him..

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
