I’m so lucky to find Max. He helped me to recover so fast after my bunion surgery. Actually, without him, I wouldn't have a fast recovery! He is so nice, knowledgeable, patient, and gentle. I highly recommend him!

Very kind and wonderful doctor. The first I was very impressed with his physical therapy technique , I was sure he was going to be my physical therapist for as long as I needed him. On my second appointment, my backwas hurting so bad, he put a heating pad and still did a great job on my wrist. I lost my trust when he told me not to worry about my ankle injury that the ultrasound had shown abnornality. He did not examine my ankle but he was giving me advice not to worry when I am in pain daily. I asked him if he needs any information from the previous hospital that planned to pad my shoe to support my left ankle , he said no , he is sure its nothing. I was so shocked, troubled by this wrong medical advice.The fact that I did not limp when I was in his room, it did not mean I had no problem. A short distance walk provokes the ankle pain so bad. I was involved in an accident in 2016. The pain is still there and ultrasound did confirm the problem Just when I thought I found a good doctor now I am very confused to a point that I could not go to him for my Monday appointment. My heart was so disturbed by this wrong advice made without even examination. I honestly don't know what to do. I can't go back no matter how good he was with my w

Max was great listened to my problems and concerns. Asked a lot of detailed questions regarding my issues and how to a plan of action. He constantly checked in throughout the appointment with me while working on my wrist, shoulder andelbow making sure I was ok if I had any questions or concerns. Very present and aware of his patients needs.

I have a herniated disc and have been going to a different PT for nearly a year with not much progress. In just 3 sessions with Max, I feel so much better. Be prepared to work, he'll finds all of theright spots and massages/stretches/strengthens the trouble area. The folks at Orthology are super friendly, the place has a great view and dope playlists. Wish I would have gone to him sooner!
