Here's What Our Patients Say About Us

I have had two surgeries by two different doctors here and couldn't be more impressed. I have moved from the area and currently live 4 hours away. I drove to these guys to address carpal tunnel in both hands. I will let no one else perform surgery on me as long as Arthritis & Sports exists, if that tells you anything.

My family and I have been patients of Arthritis & Sports for over 15 years. The doctors are top notch and the staff are very professional and friendly. My three sons have had many breaks, bumps and bruises of some sort over the years and it has always been nice to know that I could rely on the Arthritis & Sports team to come to our aid. Booking appointments has been and is always effortless and wait times in the office are never an issue.
