All of the staff were incredibly nice, helpful, and of good cheer. They made me smile and even laugh at several points of my visit which is a plus in my book. Extremely warm and friendly! Dr. Jurist did not spend much time in the room with me but I still felt that he was very professional and informative. I will be happy to return after I get an MRI to here what he says about what's going to happen next with my knee.

Dr. Jurist answered all my questions, talk to me about different procedures, expressed himself in a caring manner, and explained everything so as it made sense to me. to me it seemed like he was a very busy man but for good reason , I think he's a very good doctor and I'm sure there are people waiting to get in to see him because of that . I will return I did like him very much.
