Dr. Mara – Testimonials
Dr. Mara as always was kind and caring. He is very professional and knowledgeable and explained everything clearly. I have been a pt. in this office, usually in Avon, for years. The office staff is very kind and I usually can get an appointment within a day or 2. If not the walk in is wonderful. The PA's, especially Alyssa are great. Dr. Mara has repaired 3 rotator cuff tears and a torn miniscus (knee)
Everyone gets A++ at H.O.S. I highly recommend this group of professionals. I am actually looking forward to my follow-up! PS: My back is much better just from the arthritis meds prescribed .... and I haven't even started my P.T. training yet.
I find everyone in this office to be exceptional helpful and very gracious. They genuinely care about their patients. Dr Mara always offers a full explanation of what is happening and what can be done. He has drawn me pictures showing me what has happened to my wrist which I could understand much better than looking at the exrays. His assistant Betsy never seems annoyed when I call with my many questions regarding paperwork, procedures etc.
Dr. Mara was exceptional and did a wonderful job repairing my shoulder. It was substantially injured and Dr. Mara has been very patient and supportive as I progress through physical therapy. I’ve already recommended him to another individual. The only thing outstanding is to achieve a full recovery, which I anticipate will happen as I do what’s needed for physical therapy.
I just want to say thank you to doctor Mara at Orthopedic Surgical Partners Surgeon, I came to him very sick with my right arm, and he was very caring and understanding with my need, his level of understanding what going on with me help me to get help and feeling better in no time... Thanks doctor.
Great and understanding
Wonderful staff and doctor.
The people at this practice are friendly and efficient. My orthopedist, Dr Mara, explains everything in a thorough and understandable way.
