2. Type in the web address:

3. A box will open to download or open the Zoom application.

• Most phones/tablets require that you download the zoom application

• If you do not wish to download or use the Zoom app, use your laptop/desktop computer to connect and click on the link “start from your browser”.

4. Once you have opened the zoom app, chose “Join with Video”. Your computer may ask for permission to use your video camera and or microphone. Please accept

5. You will then be in Dr. Panero’s “virtual waiting room”

6. When admitted into room, choose “Join with Audio”. Your computer may ask you for permission to use its microphone, please accept.

7. Please wait, we will be seeing patients one at a time. Once Dr. Panero is ready for your telemedicine appointment, he will start the video session.

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.

I just had my first visit with Dr. Panero and found him to be knowledgeable and personable. I appreciate the fact that he was straightforward with my options for treatment, which are limited due to the nature of my orthopedic problem. I will continue with his recommended injections.

I was very happy with Dr. Panero. He took his time to listen to me and evaluate me. Then he went over all my options and answered all my questions. I am very glad I was referred to him!

Very personable and knowledgeable presenting options for the problem and then going forward from the choice made. I would definitely recommend him to friends and family! Office staff is fabulous as well.

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!
