Dr. Mares spent a long time discussing my shoulder, we discussed many options and finally decided on a treatment plan that worked for both of us. I really felt like a partner in the decision making process. This is what good medicine looks and feels like.

Dr. Mares was very professional yet very personable. He was very knowledgeable and completely tuned into my issues. He took a considerable amount of time to provide a huge amount of information about my condition. I am most grateful for his ability to very quickly understand and support my decision to pursue some, but not all, of the different options available to me. Dr. Mares exceeded my expectations of what I hoped to get from the appointment.
