Patient Reviews

The following are reviews from patients of Dr. Phelan.

“Dr. Phelan listened to my issues and concerns and didn’t dismiss them blaming my age. He examined my knees, came up with a diagnosis and treatment plan of a cortisone shot, and PT. He said to make a follow-up appointment for six weeks but to cancel it if I didn’t need it. Thankfully, I did not need a follow-up appointment, and I am back to my regular gym routine.”

“Dr. Phelan is very knowledgeable and performed a successful diagnosis and surgery for my daughter’s knee with meniscus repair. He definitely understands the desire patients have to meet full recovery, especially athletes or those with a physically demanding career. For this reason, I chose to seek Dr. Phelan’s advice with my own joint concerns. Dr. Phelan patiently listens and asks questions to perform a thorough diagnosis and takes the time to explain in detail the possible cause as well as the remedy for patients ailments. It’s nice for patients to know what’s wrong, why it’s wrong, how to fix it, and how the prescribed remedy is supposed to work. Thank you Dr. Phelan!”

“I was experiencing swelling in my knee accompanied by a great deal of pain. Dr. Phelan examined me, ordered an X-ray, discussed possible causes for the swelling, offered treatment options and carried out the treatment we decided on. I felt that Dr. Phelan listened to my concerns and explained the options and the procedure as he was performing it. I left the office feeling far better than when I did when I arrived. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Phelan and the rest of the staff at the center.”
