"Excellent diagnosis and great recommendations on stretching/core exercises - Dr Tony is very thorough and does a great job recommending proper exercises and stretching to prevent ongoing knee pain issues. His diagnosis was spot on and didn't required surgery which is a big relief. He's also a great guy and avid sportsman like me. I highly recommend him."

Today I officially graduated 14 months after my injury and I'm grateful that he was my doc."
