Dr. Degenhardt was the best doctor I’ve ever been to in entire life, and I’ve been to quite a number of them. Even though I was very late to my appointment, He saw me anyways and was not even bothered by it. Really showed an interest in my lifestyle and health habits. Very much looking forward to my next annual physical a year from now

I went in for an annual visit, and asked a question about knee pain. It took probably two minutes to say: “go have some sessions with the physio”. They charged me an additional consultation fee for this question. Ethically questionable. The practice refused to reverse these charges. Be weary of visiting Chelsea Sports Medicine.

The visit went well - only thing I didn’t like was I spent more time with the Physician Assistant then the actual DR. Would have preferred time with the dr w/o physician assistant.

Dr. Aran Degenhardt was one of the nicest doctors I've ever met. My fiance and I went to get travel shots before our honeymoon and he explained all the different vaccination options there were and which he recommended based on the country we'll be going to. And he explained this all in very easy to understand terminology! My fiance didn't feel well after the shots and Dr. Degenhardt was so sweet and caring and let us take over a room for a few extra minutes so my fiance could lay down. Would definitely recommend going to him!

Cannot say enough good things about Dr. Degenhardt. I run a lot and am very injury prone - suffering from chronic pain in my feet. He was SO thorough. He took so much time to help me understand what my injury actually was, and how we could treat it.Seriously seriously recommend him as a sports doc!

As most of my appointments I have been seen by Katherine who is absolutely amazing at her job. Always makes me feel comfortable and has an answer to every question. The appointment before i was seen by Dr. Degenhardt who was also very professional and nice. I would definelty recommend both of them to anyone. They both helped me to fix an issue I have had since years.

Honestly, the best doctor I have ever visited. He saw me immediately with no wait time and was very patient and listened to all my concerns. He was extremely knowledgeable on hormone issues and also sports related injuries. He gave amazing holistic/lifestyle recommendations instead of just writing a prescription and sending me on my way like most doctors I have experienced. I would highly recommend choosing Dr. Degenhardt!
