Dr.Mair and his staff and interns are the best orthopedic office I've ever been to. Knowledgable, friendly, professional, caring...Even if I'm in pain I look forward to my visit because I know they will do whatever can be done to improve my condition. Superior medical knowledge and interaction with me as a patient and a person.
Wonderful provider - Wonderful experience. Very comforting to be in his care.

Dr. Marie (Mair) listened to my questions and gave me a wealth of knowledge to make an educated decision on what to do about my injury. I(I am taking this survey on my phone and it is auto correcting his name. I cannot fix the typos due to the formatting. )
