I have been a patient of Dr. Holliger for 10 years. He puts his patients at ease with his kindness and his sense of humor. You know that your concerns are being heard and will be taken care of. His staff is second to none, phone calls are always returned. It is easy to understand why he has received top honors as a hand surgeon so many times.
Dr. Willett was cordial, knowledgeable, and took the time to make sure all my questions were answered.
My husband has used Resurgens for several surgeries and we have always been very pleased. Friendly, caring nurses and doctors. We never feel like they have overbooked surgeries where we feel rushed. He just had total knee replacement and the nurses and doctors were great!

Brooke a piece of my joint off at the base of my thumb in a SkyZone Trampoline Fitness class. It floated away from the bone with the ligament attached. Dr. Patel did a great job at explaining everything to me prior to surgery. I knew exactly what to expect. The Resurgens group is amazing. I still have to go back and have the cast taken off and pin removed. Hoping the pin removal does not hurt. He said it would not, just be uncomfortable. He has been spot on about everything else, so not as anxious.

Dr. Kelly performed my first knee surgery almost 6 years ago. The process was very easy on my end and his office made it a breeze to take care of my knee issues. Now, I'm having the same issue on my other knee and his office has gone above and beyond to address my concerns and assist me in scheduling my surgery. I have seen other doctors and would suggest no one else but him. He is thorough in his explanations without making you feel like you need a medical degree to translate.
Dr. Makhuli has been my favorite orthopedic surgeon long before he became my doctor. He fixed my son's clavicle smashed in a skateboarding accident. When I became a patient of his I already had experiences with good orthopedic surgeons from New Jersey to Atlanta since 1985 with arthroscopic repair of torn meniscus in both knees. Dr. Makhuli was in no hurry to perform replacements and for years we worked on less drastic solutions until at the age of 61 this past January, when I had my first total.
A most excellent, competent professional with superb doctor/patient relationship. Good humor, kept us at ease and reassured during the entire process, diagnosis, surgery, rehab. Thankful to know Dr. Widener.
Dr. Schneider, nurses, x-ray technicians, receptionist and staff members made each visit very positive and pleasant. For my injuries (both wrists), they provided me with an understandable explanation as well as reasonable expectation for my recovery.
