Doctor was very professional in addressing my hip issue

February 13, 2020

The office manager went far above and beyond to get me a new series of knee shots

February 11, 2020

The provider did not know my medical history or reason for visiting. They also spent a grand total of five minutes with me and seemed dismissive of my concerns. They were polite/friendly, but I did not feel heard and my issue was not addressed to my satisfaction.

February 11, 2020

He is fantastic!!! Wouldn't see any other Dr for my knees!!!

February 06, 2020

This was my first visit with Dr. Mares. It was an excellent visit and I would not hesitate to use Dr. Mares in the future.
