My daughter was born with bilateral clubfeet and we went to Dr. Axelrod for everything. He was the one who did all of her casts, performed her tenotomy and he even ordered her special pink shoes with the bar for when she got her casts off, which they don't normally have. He always answered all of my questions I had and didn't make me feel stupid for asking them like most doctors do. I wasn't sure why he got some bad reviews, I personally felt he was knowledgeable and trustworthy...very caring too. My only complaint is the scheduling/office desk people that work in the office he practices in. Some of them aren't really on top of it when it comes to doing their basic job requirements.
Everyone was pleasant
Everyone in the office was pleasant overall. There was an issue with reading the MRI image that I brought with me so I waited for just over an hour top see the Doctor once in the exam room.
Would STRONGLY recommend!!!
Dr. Schneider was great! Knowledgeable, informative and very professional. If anyone could have made this experience tolerable for me, it was him! Very nice and personable as well! Thanks again!
Dr. Amanda L. Dempsey, Orthopedic Hand Surgeon
Dr. Dempsey recently performed micro-surgery to repair nerve damage to the ring finger on my left hand. I am a senior, and I have very small hands and fingers. As a patient, I was fully informed as to what would take place, and was treated with the utmost kindness and respect. Before and after the surgery, Dr. Dempsey went out of her way to describe the procedure. I also was impressed with the kindness, efficiency and professionalism of her team overall. The surgery went well, and the finger is healing with astonishing speed. Nerves supposedly heal slowly. It would take a year for mine, Dr. Dempsey explained. It seems to be healing at a much faster clip. The scar is barely perceptible...
She puts the "care" in medical care!!
Dr. Julia Kao was the most wonderful thing to happen to me after a transverse patella fracture!! I needed serious repair to the whole knee and the patella was fragile to work with. Dr Kao was very prompt with care. The office was great. The knowledge she has is so easy to hear and follow. The surgery went perfectly and after 2 weeks I am headed to rehab. This is a serious injury with long recovery. She made me understand every phase of recovery. Follow up is amazing. She's given me a chance to walk again because of her belief in herself and her abilities. I never doubted one moment before the surgery. Never a second thought. I was so right!! Thank you Dr. Kao
