Dr. Panero is extremely professional and takes the time to explain in detail his diagnosis and opinion. He is also willing to listen to your concerns and needs.(Some orthopedic doctors I’ve meet with have not been as open minded.) I really like his approach to rehab and regeneration. It is refreshing to not have a Dr. want to immediately operate or medicate you. Nice courteous staff, reasonable wait time and the office is very accessible with a parking garage. Parking fee, I paid $1 for 30 mins, cash only.

Dr Panero is superb. Always and I have unqualified respect and admiration and trust in him. I am fortunate to be a patient and client of his. His staff are excellent and so professional and thoughtful too.

Leslie S.

Dr. Panero is an amazing physician who truly cares about the wellbeing of his patients. His entire team is dedicated, thorough, and professional who makes sure all appointments go smoothly even with the ongoing pandemic. Dr. Panero recommended PRP for my elbow tendinitis and truly advocated for me to get the treatment I needed to improve my chronic pain. I am so grateful to be one of Dr. Panero’s patients!

Rena S.

I really appreciate Dr. Panero’s skill and expertise, as well as his focus, deep active listening, and clear communication about next steps. Thank you so much!
