He is an awesome doctor and very genuine, with a great way of communicating with you as a non- medical person. I trust him and appreciate that he was willing to call my physical therapist to provide feedback. He is a blessing!

Dr. Shelegel really listened. I did research and chose him based on is stellar reputation. I have had more than my share of orthopedic surgeries and surgeons. I was searching for someone I could really trust, someone who stays current in the field - should a surgery become imminent.
