    As of now, almost 3-months after seeing the the doctor I have no idea if or when the promised medication will be started. All that said, the doctors are great...Their support staff leaves much to be desired.

    Dr. Hanson is very personable. He is not quick to push shots or surgeries on you. He lays out the details and lets you make the decision for treatment. I rarely wait more than 5 minutes when I have an appointment to see him or his assistant. I have already recommended him to a friend.

    This group repaired my husband's broken hip at Banner Thunderbird in July 2012 after he fell during a physical therapy session. The repair eventually caused his hip to collapse and require a total hip replacement. Core's diagnosis for his continued pain the November of 2012 was arthritis. Another orothopedic surgeon did his own x-ray and recognized the correct diagnosis as collapse of the hip. While we accept that hip repairs can cause unforeseen complications, when we consulted Core in early 2013 to do the hip replacement we were astounded that when asked if they did the anterior approach, which was even then the preferred method, we were told it was "marketing hype" and no they did not perform that surgery. We couldn't leave the office fast enough.

    Dr Lee is very busy, so I had to book an appointment out pretty far -- I think he was worth the wait.  He was also late for the appointment time, but gives you full attention when it's your turn.  After doing an MRI, he recommended cortisone injections, rest, and therapy rather than surgery.  Since he is an orthopedic surgeon, I appreciate that he recommended a non-surgical approach for me.  He explained things well and answered all of my questions.

    Dr Whirlow had me X-ray the knees before my appt with her. I was happy to hear that they are in good shape. She examined me and recommended a good stretching physical therapy program. It turned out to be my IT band giving me the pain. Dr Whirlow is a very conscience, thorough, and detailed surgeon. I would have her do my knee or hip surgeries any time. She was highly recommended to me by a nurse I know and am very grateful for that.
    She might come across as business like at first but she will warm up to you. She is very knowledgeable, takes her patients needs very seriously and always strives for perfection. That's what she gave me.

    It was easy to get an appointment which was a surprise. The offices are so plush I didn't want to leave. Very high class so I expected an accompanying high bill when done. The girls at the counter were top notch and I waited very little time to actually begin going through the steps which started with ex-rays. From there the doctor came in in no time and we began a discussion. I'm used to the hurry up attitude as doctors are over worked but Dr. Sumit Dewanjee, MD acted like he had all day and was very relaxed and very detailed in trying to find out what my problem was.
    He narrowed it down to two things and one was more severe and the other was something I never heard of which is and quot;Frozen Shoulder Syndromeand quot;. He said the best thing to determine which it was, was to inject a shot of cortisone and then see the movements that I was able to make once the pain was gone. Sounded expensive to me and time consuming but I was there and he assured me it would be fast and painless.
    I'm not a wimp but no one likes pain and they shot the area with cold air and the needle going in to the shoulder was a pain level of 1 out of 10. A few minutes went by and we did some movement tests and he said and quot;Yep you have frozen shoulder and explained the whole thing to me and from there all I had to do is some simple exercises at home and in a few months the pain would be gone/fixed.
    From that visit forward I had NO PAIN any further although movement of the arm did require the exercises he showed me but now in just a month or so the arm is almost back to normal and again ....NEVER PAIN AGAIN. I figured with his care and professionalism and the fancy office and all the perfect experience I received my bill would be over $500 which was fine and when I checked out it was around $150. Unreal
    This Dr. is so good I almost wish I had more orthopedic problems (kidding). This is the story of on a 1 to 10 what would you rate the experience and it does not fit because he should be a 15 or more. If you have orthopedic issues....Sumit Dewanjee, MD is the man to see.

    Wound developed osteonecrosis and required total hip replacement in 2013. Option of total hip replacement originally instead of repair was never orally discussed with patient and care giver, only in a waiver to acknowledge that such a condition could result from repair which was signed in ER under extreme stress of the moment. The degree of bone death was not detected by Core, but by second opinion and in discussing surgical total hip replacement, surgeon dismissed the idea of the newer anterior approach and dismised the fact that the patient suffered from a neurological disorder which would be affected by anesthesia and pain meds. After the surgery, we never spoke directly to surgeon who did the surgery but always to a physician assistant.

    Dr. Vella did surgery on my hand and I was very pleased with the outcome. He is a great doctor and I can highly recommend him.
    I also see Dr. Chabre for my knee issues. He is also a very good doctor. I received treatment (shots) for my knee and am so far happy with the result and hope that they will continue to work so I don't have to have a knee replacement.

    Dr. Nassar spent a long time discussing the pros, cons and detailed procedures for surgery. He is a little bit on the serious side but I left with a total understanding of our options, risks, and outcomes. He was unsure of a detail for the surgery. He called the day after our appointment to let us know that he had done some research and would do a part of it differently. I was impressed that he would take the time to do this. We opted to go with a different surgeon because his procedure was not as invasive. However, she is still having difficulties and now wish we had chosen Dr. Nassar do her surgery and the procedure he suggested.
