First visit to Drr. Mares, great job

February 28, 2017

I felt Dr. Mares provided me with more info about my condition/problem in the hour spent with him than others I had been doctoring with for the past two weeks. Dr. Mares definitely knows what he's doing & I'm so grateful he is confident he can help me instead of just managing my pain. the fact that he had a plan for my care relieved tremendous stress from me which in turn relieved some pain.

very informative regarding what the next procedures might be necessary or available to help with the knees.

February 15, 2017

I've always liked Dr. Mares, but I felt very rushed during this appointment and guided toward procedures before having a full conversation about everything. This visit was completely focused on my knee and I would have liked to have had a more extensive conversation about my foot. While we did touch on the foot and possible procedures for it, time seemed to be a greater concern than I was.
