Dr.
Cranston Sports Medicine Doctors Provider Name Locked
is wonderful! He has a good bedside manner and great personality. He knew immediately what my problem was and let me choose my method of treatment. He suggested a cortisone shot, but I opted to try the splint first. It was not as effective, so I went back for a cortisone shot and it was very successful!

have been seeing Dr.
Cranston Sports Medicine Doctors Provider Name Locked
for a number of years now. He is very thorough in his screenings and I like that he has a lab right in his office for blood work and some X-rays. I also trust that he will refer me to excellent specialists if needed.
The most recent visit was for a full physical. I like that Dr.
Cranston Sports Medicine Doctors Provider Name Locked
orders many tests to make sure that everything is working well on the inside. I feel very well taken care of in his office and I trust his care. Dr.
Cranston Sports Medicine Doctors Provider Name Locked
's physicals always take two appointments, which is a bit of a bummer to have to pay two expensive co-pays.
The first of the two visits was predominantly the lab work, chest X-
Cranston Sports Medicine Doctors Provider Name Locked
and a wham bam exam.
(Note: I would rather that I could just come in for the first appointment without an actual copay and just have the lab work and chest X-
Cranston Sports Medicine Doctors Provider Name Locked
done and NOT see Dr.
Cranston Sports Medicine Doctors Provider Name Locked
. Then, I could come back for a scheduled appointment with Dr.
Cranston Sports Medicine Doctors Provider Name Locked
where he would do the exam and really spend some time talking to me about my test results, etc. Boom. One copay and insurance gets billed for tests done and one thorough exam. But, he doesn't do it that way. Sometimes I wonder if he's doing it the way he does it in order to get more $$ because he's having two face-to-face times with me.)
The second appointment (keep your clothes on) is to review the results of the tests. I always feel like he's rushing me through this appointment. He doesn't take as much time explaining results as I would like him to and just kind of circles things and rushes through them. (Next time, I will be more assertive and pin him down more.) However, I keeps seeing Dr.
Cranston Sports Medicine Doctors Provider Name Locked
because he is thorough with the tests he asks for and I know, IF something were actually wrong with me, he would kick into gear and make sure I'm getting the best care possible.

I visited this office three times, and every single time my wait was over 40 minutes long. Today, after a 1 hour wait, I simply asked for a refund of my copayment, and walked out. Nobody told me where the doctor was, or why he was being late. If they do not respect my time, I will not give them my business.

Dr.
Cranston Sports Medicine Doctors Provider Name Locked
contacted my husband at home himself and was able to fit my husband into his schedule for surgery a few hours later that same day. He was a very nice man and seemed to be a very pleasant doctor. He came in and checked up on my husband before releasing him home after the his surgery.

He is extremely knowledgeable. He is kind. He is prompt. My husband was injured in
Cranston Sports Medicine Doctors Provider Name Locked
DC and we got him to come back home knowing that he needed surgery. He went to Dr.
Cranston Sports Medicine Doctors Provider Name Locked
the next day and he operated on Good Friday on him. He called us personally on Saturday to make sure that he was doing okay. I liked that. I had a torn meniscus but because my arthritis was so bad, he said that therapy won’t work but make it worse. Eventually I would have to have it replaced but for the time being it is fine. It was a non invasive treatment. He could have recommended surgery but he didn’t and I liked that about him also. I would have one of partners do my knee replacement surgery because he doesn’t do that. But he did the shoulder replacement surgery for my husband which has been quite successful. A couple of times when my husband got himself injured he was able to get in to see him that day or the next day.

They are credible and know what they are doing. They seem to specialize in children's sports injuries and knowledgeable about the healing and rehabilitation process. They have a very good bedside manner with the patients. The staff is very good and knowledgeable as well. They have multiple locations in town which is helpful.

I have always had a bad back and bounced around a few massage and chiropractic places. My co-worker told me about
Cranston Sports Medicine Doctors Provider Name Locked
and after finding out how cheap his services were I thought I had nothing to
Cranston Sports Medicine Doctors Provider Name Locked
. I booked an appointment with
Cranston Sports Medicine Doctors Provider Name Locked
, there are a few others, and I very much enjoyed his services.
He really did a great job of sculpting his technique to my particular problems, which were mostly lower to mid back issues. I have had massages in the past that never really got deep enough into my tissue, but
Cranston Sports Medicine Doctors Provider Name Locked
seemed to know just the right amount of pressure I needed to really loosen me up. He does everything from injury rehab to deep tissue to more spa focused massages. Since my first appointment my fiancé has gone here and she loves the paraffin wax treatment they offer for her feet and hands.
All in all this is the best place I have found in
Cranston Sports Medicine Doctors Provider Name Locked
and I will continue to see him on a regular basis.
