Dr. Mares is not only very skilled, but very personable. He puts you at ease. He injected my knee with minimal discomfort. I had back and knee xrays done and received a phone call at home just a couple of hours later from Dr. Mares telling me the results. impressive!

Appointment felt rushed. No attempts to discuss pain management were made. Little time for answering questions. Advice for level of activity was not consistent with level of pain for any activities.
