Dr. Laxer is the best! No one goes to an orthopedic doctor because they feel great. So it’s nice to have options. While he’s an amazing surgeon, Dr. Laxer never pushes surgery and always tries conservative methods for recovery first. But if surgery is the best option one can have the utmost confidence in not only his ability but his bedside manner as well. Unlike other doctors I’ve experienced, Dr. Laxer takes all the time needed with patients and I’ve never felt rushed to get out if I had lots of questions. Can’t provide enough accolades.- Josh W.
