Dr. Mares is excellent, I wouldn't want any other orthopedic surgeon taking care of me. He totally has his patients first and foremost when it comes to your care.

Awesome. Extremely knowledgeable with a great bedside manner. Excellent doctor!

April 01, 2016

At my appointment, I was first seen by a resident or fellow, whose name I unfortunately do not recall. He gave his assessment of my concerns. He was thorough and very kind. Then Dr Mares came in the room and the two of them showed me my xrays and conducted an ultrasound. I liked how they explained everything they could see in my xray and ultrasound. It felt like we were a team trying to solve my problem. I've never had a doctor give me so much attention and time and make me feel so valued and respected.
