|Unbelievable experience after many years and many doctors and feeling incredibly defeated I randomly saw ads for this place and figured what do I have to loose. After one visit with Dr Heftler figured it out. By this point I’d already had 6 MRIs from other doctors, medications, injections to no avail. He called me with the news himself not a nurse. I couldn’t be more impressed and grateful. I couldn’t be more grateful to him after years of debilitating pain someone finally figured it out. He then referred me to Dr Greene for surgery, another fantastic experience. All in all I will ONLY ago here for any orthopedic needs and send everyone else here. PT employees are fabulous, nurses and desk staff always made a pleasant experience. Highly recommend. (5 Star Review on Yelp from Essie C.)|
