I am awed at the amount of time and information Drs. Maxwell and Aida provided at each of my two visits. Examinations were more thorough than any orthopedist had ever performed and both doctors thought holistically rather than being quick tosay where my pain originated from without considering all evidence. Dr. Maxwell explained my MRI findings, showed me what he saw, and described possible treatments. He agreed with my decision to try the least invasive first: physical therapy. He explained what pt would focus on and how it might help. I left with a clear sense of what a cortisone shot or nerve block would entail, and how long related pain relief might last. I felt listened to, educated, and respected as well as well cared for. I heartily recommend Dr. Maxwell.

Dr. Maxwell is very personable and informed. He changes my treatment based on what is going on with me now instead of just going along and not rechecking. He's on top of it when something happens outside the office. Very confident in his care and treatment. 5 Stars.

From the reception desk to the treatment room all encounters were pleasant and extremely courteous. My check-in was fast and simple. My wait time in the reception area was less than 20 minutes. I was surprised that the office is configuredin a way that multiple visits were eliminated in that I was able to get xrays taken and reviewed, and treated... Highly recommended and reflects favorable on MedStar....

First appointment with Dr. Maxwell -- would not hesitate to come back. He is very thorough, takes his time, and makes the effort to explain everything to the patient/ensure you don't have further questions. Other physicians should learn from his example. Would recommend him in a heartbeat.

He actually listened to me. Looked through my MRIs (I brought 2) and was very helpful in actually pinpointing what the problem was. I highly recommend him.

They changed front desk staff and the service has fallen dramatically the person I spoke with on the phone was rude and not very helpful. They do not respond in a reasonable manner to requests and questions after you leave the office

Excellent physician! I highly recommend. The wait time was long due to an accident on the beltway that backed up the whole office.

I made my appointment through zocdoc, I got a confirmation email and everything, when i arrived they didn't know who I was nor did they have my apt scheduled. They didn't try to accommodate me although I showed them the confirmationemail. They just said they were having some technical issues. i drove an hour to get there, so this was really disappointing. Never again!
