“Dr. Nevins answers all the concerns I have, and he always gives his best advice and opinions with the pros and cons of every question. He is sincere and indeed a good doctor to have. He did the total replacement on my right hip, as well as complete replacement on my left knee. I did the steroid shot on my left hip and Euflexa on my right knee.”

“Dr. Fontes performed two (2) reverse full shoulder replacements on me within a six (6) month period, and he and his PA, Laura Rodriguez did an excellent job. I am still in PT, and my follow-ups continue, however, I would give Dr. Fontes the highest recommendation available in his field.”

“Dr. Miao is an exceptional surgeon. Over the years he has repaired both of my knees and my wife's knee and shoulder. He was very professional and extremely informative of the procedures. There were no surprises, and the postoperative healing was fast and relatively pain-free. We are very fortunate to have Dr. Miao serving our community.”

“Dr. Miao and his staff are always pleasant. He takes the time to explain procedures and surgery to you in layman's terms. He was right on target with my post-surgical recovery time after repairing a tear in my rotator cuff. I would refer anyone to him without hesitation.”
