Resurgens Orthopaedics Varied

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.

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.
