"Dr. Axelrod did my initial ACL repair in 1982. I would trust him with my life and will always seek him out for any issues I may/will have in the future!!"

"Dr. Axelrod listened to my complaints, examined my hip and gave his opinion as to where my pain was actually coming from and we discussed what my next step should be. This was my 3rd visit with Dr. A. & I feel very confident in him."

"I love that Dr. Axelrod was more conservative with my treatment. I was very nervous about just being sent for surgery without trying more conservative measures. He took into account my medical history, and addressed all of my concerns. I can't say enough how happy I was with my visit."

"Dr. Axelrod was very friendly and made me feel comfortable. He explained everything so I could understand."
