Always a very positive experience–both with Dr. appts. and Pt. appts.
Would definitely recommend OrthoNeuro to friends and family.
Dr. Gittins scoped both of my knees years ago, so I a great deal of confidence in his work and office.


My first experience with my first knee was better than I could ever imagined. My nurse ( Cathy I believe) was amazing as was the anesthesiologist. They were caring and reassuring.


I appreciate Dr. Mark Gittins. Rather than injecting me with steroids immediately he ordered an MRI for further diagnosis. Eventually I did require a steroid injection. Dr. Gittins gave the injection. It really helped and I am now in PT.


Always receive excellent care that is why I keep coming back.


Doc was wonderful. He was personal, caring, down to earth in explaining and couldn’t have done more . He was great.


Very pleasant experience with Dr. Gittins and all of his staff. Cam has been very helpful and great to work with me, very friendly lady!
