Dr. Mares was very thorough and explained things clearly. He also followed up that evening with a phone call to let me know the results of the MRI, instead of waiting until my next appointment.

Dr.Mares is Aces, the Best when it comes to orthopedic knowledge and care.

This was the first time I met this care provider, but they were very helpful and welcoming. After knowing that my previous doctor had moved out of state, I definitely felt reassured by the treatment I received from all of the staff involved.

Dr. Mares is outstanding. Being in the medical profession and a Type A personality, I could not speak more highly of him. Professional, knowledgeable and excellent bedside manners.

I have never been prouder to be a UPMC employee then when I left UPMC Sports Medicine. From the time I arrived, to the time I left, everyone I encountered was beyond friendly and helpful. The receptionists, x-ray technicians, fellow, the athletic trainers, and Dr. Mares made this one of the best customer service experiences I've ever had. It definitely made me proud to know that this is the type of care that we as an organization provide to our patients every day. This is my first experience going to a doctor at UPMC and I firmly believe that every provider team should follow the example of Dr. Mares and the rest of his staff.

Always listens to my issues/concerns and provides excellent feedback and care.

October 17, 2016

I found the entire staff very polite, courteous and respectful. I am very pleased with my visit and extremely pleased with the results so far.

He was nice but I feel he should have spent more time with me and listen to my physical complaints
