Dr.Mares is excellent, I had a visit with him in 2013, that's why I came back to him when I had another problem with my foot. the BEST!!!!

Dr. was excellent. Explained everything thoroughly to us. We decided on when to seek treatment for my condition - I will be away at school for the next he discussed with us that we can wait until I'm off for an extended period of time to have the test for compartment syndrome and subsequent surgery, if necessary. I felt very comfortable with this Dr. He had a great professional manner about him also. The administrative staff was very courteous and efficient also. Great experience. He also gave us information for physical therapy sessions and we set it up before we left. The Dr. discussed my plans for the future (was I going to do hurdling in college). Since I will not be doing this at college this year, we decided to wait. I do not experience symptoms during my regular life (only when I was doing hurdles for track this year at school).

Generally UPMC orthopaedics doctors provide highest rate care and are my go-to for any orthopaedic problem. Great thanks

Wonderful doctor, attentive and knowledgeable. Gave me a diagnosis and options, with comprehensive explanations for both. Couldn't wish for anything better.

I've never had an experience like I did at the sports medicine facility. The doctor was patient, friendly, and funny. he even drew me a diagram of what we needed to do to get me better and to help me improve in the long term. I've already told all of my friends and family about this great experience!

I have already referred several people to Dr. Mares and will continue to do so. His attention to detail, thoroughness of exam, and ability to communicate in a compassionate and non-condescending manner are difficult to match. His clinical skills go beyond by any experience that I, or my children, have ever had and he has not only been correct in his orthopedic diagnoses, but has picked up non-orthopedic medical and surgical diagnoses that other providers have missed. His is outstanding!
