My son fell at the camp and broke his arm. The camp told me it was not urgent. I picked him up and Arthritis & Sports was able to get him in on the same day and gave him a thorough examination, and he ended up having to go through surgery. Again, A&S was able to add him to the end of Dr. Goodwin’s surgery schedule the next day. The patience and flexibility and professionalism of A&S doctors and staff really made a big difference to my son and myself in a very stressful situation.
