Clinic and Urgent Care Patient Testimonials:

"I had Rotator Cuff surgery on my left shoulder by Dr. LaPorte. This was my sixth different surgery since 2002 that has been done at Bone & Joint. My experience has been nothing but professional, that is why, if Bone & Joint can perform a surgery I may need in the future, it will be done there. The six different doctors that have operated on me, as well as all the staff, have been nothing but above and beyond. If Bone & Joint can provide relief from the pain you are experiencing, I highly recommend using their services. On a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being on the top, I would give their services a 20." Dave C., Oct. 2018
