What do clients have to say about you?


8 months ago-

Dr Theodore did a bunionectomy and osteotomy to both my feet, he is a perfectionist! I had two wonderful experiences with little to no pain and great recoveries. His staff is knowledgeable and very helpful with and questions. I have recommended him to family and friends and feel confident that they will have as good experiences as I have.


a year ago-

Dr Theodore performed complex ankle surgery involving a tendon transfer and the repair of 2 ruptured tendons. He is a highly skilled surgeon and my outcome has been very positive. He was detailed and clear about what would be involved in the surgery and the recovery process. I found he and his staff to be very thorough and responsive to patient questions/concerns. If you want a clear diagnosis and a surgeon who can handle difficult procedures, Dr. Theodore is the professional for you.



Dr. Theodore is the best of the best. No one can beat his diagnosis and outcomes as his celebs and athletes can attest.
