When a child has a sports injury which prevents them from doing what they love, it is very traumatic to them. Dr. Mares was very respectful and took the time to explain the MRI image and my daughter's injury. He was very knowledgeable about sports injuries and can relate to young high school athletes. I feel very confident in the level of care and diagnosis he provided. Will highly recommend him.
