      We have had nothing but amazing service and care with Dr. Saper and his team. Most of my questions are answered before having to ask them and I've never been made to feel silly over the ones that I do have to ask. We will definitely be coming back for any future issues/injuries!

      Dr.Saper was overall a great doctor. He was always truly concerned about my overall health. He told me everything that was going on. He informed me about all the possible side effects. He definitely knew what he was doing. I had a very positive experience with him
