"Other than breaking my elbow, my entire experience at Carolina Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine has been very pleasant. The staff is friendly and professional. The doctor was friendly and made me feel at ease. He explained everything to me so that I knew what to expect as to my surgery and recovery. I think this was the first experience at a doctors office to which I did not dread going." – Lynne B.
