Dr. Carlo got a NEW and LOYAL patient today. He treated us with respect (some older folks with Medicare don't always get respect), he solved the pain I was in with pain in my left shoulder. He put in a shotthat eased it off and I've hurt so bad for the last 4 days. Our OLD ortho doctors were Southlake Ortho and they could not see me until 1 month from now and I was hurting so bad that I cried at night. Your doctor saw me today, got me out of pain and helped us so much. He was WONDERFUL and I'm sending all of my friends to him. I did not know this facility existed until it was advertised on TV with "Hurt Today, Seen Today." I decided to try it and I AM GLAD WE DID.

I broke my finger on a Saturday, was able to see Dr. Carlo that Monday, had me in for surgery on Tuesday. Excellent doctor. Excellent place to come. I can't thank him enough for taking care of me. His staff andtherapist, Chris, are a very talented, courteous team. When I had to do therapy Chris even came in at 7 am so I wouldn't miss work and was very kind and knowledgeable regarding my therapy. They definitely do whatever is needed for their patients and I would recommend them to my family and friends and anyone. A+++
