This is my third visit to Dr. Stefanides. He is everything I seek in a doctor! He is informative, has a great "bedside manor" and he seeks the path of least invasive treatment instead of "selling surgery".

What a wonderful Orthopedist! The facility is clean, the waiting room is comfortable and wait time was less than a half hour. Dr Stefanides was professional, courteous and personable and got right to the point of why I came in. There was no alarmist attitude nor thing to send me to other places. A wonderful experience.

Very knowledgeable, friendly and he spoke to me as person and not as patient "a" . If all doctors could have Dr. Stefandis' demeanor then most people would love their doctors. Also, his office staff were very helpful.

Dr. Stefanides was one of the best professionals that I have ever visited. He was a good listener who addressed my concerns. He spent ample time in consultation before offering a treatment. Dr. Stefanides explained every type of treatment that was available and included me in the decision as to which was the best option at the present time. The office staff was very courteous and helpful. Nice clean environment. Valet parking was definitely a plus.

Doc Stefanides was great. I went to him for a second opinion, and he gave all the info and different options that the first Ortho failed to give. The first one basically gave me 1 option: to go back to him every 6 months, for life. Doc Stefanides gave me all the options and did not push the option to subscribe to his office for life at all. In fact, he gave the opposite advice-to try physical therapy first. I eventually went with cortisone shots(?), given by his brother in the same office. He too was great.

Dr. Stefanides was very approachable and easy to talk to. He didn't rush the appointment even though I was referred to see another doctor for my condition. He took the time out to explain what my options were and further explained the condition I have in a way I could understand. I would recommend him to anyone who needs a good doc.

I don't think her heard a word that I said. I felt "dismissed." The fact that he stopped entering notes into the computer to respond to a text message did not help.

Dr. Stefanides was very helpful and knowledgeable. He was able to identify the likely problem I am having and recommend a specialist to help me. I have a pretty rare nerve issue which has been missed by several doctors over 8 years but Dr. Stefanides was able to recognize my symptoms and the I from me of the next step.

I've been here three times for an appointment and honestly each time it has taken over an hour to be seen. Dr. Stefanides is a nice enough person but the wait time is pretty excessive. Looking at the list of patients it was pushing over 90 people by my 5:30pm appointment. I don't know how you can see that many patients even with two other doctors on staff. Also why do I have to make another appointment to go over my MRI results? I've gotten results over the phone before so there cannot be any legal reason for this. Just another copay.
