Resurgens Orthopaedics Varied

Dr. Achecar and his team are great compassionate and caring folks. Been seeing them for 5+ years and just had a knee replaced and looking forward to have the other one done soon. He explained my condition and treatment options as well as listening to what I had to say. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Achecar is a Great Doctor He operated on my Knee and I did not have any pain at all. Everything went smooth. I have recommended 2 people to him and they were well pleased. He needs 10 stars. Would not use anyone else.
