I think the world of Dr Mares. He is very thorough, caring and listens. He also was quick to diagnose an underlying issue and make the proper referral to a specialist.Sue- the MA, couldn't be better at her job! I love going to my appointments becuase of these two!

Dr. Mares was receptive and easy to communicate with. Not dismissive at all regarding questions I had. This isn't my first rodeo with my knee(s) and I want to know my options. I believe in being included in the process. On my first visit with Dr Mares, he had a shadowing intern with him and deftly handled both my questions, and his own process of instruction with the intern. Having had long experience with training myself, I felt in good hands and will certainly attempt to continue (as needed) any treatment with Dr Mares. "Go Pitt!"
