TESTIMONIALS

  • I want to thank Dr. Wood for her wonderful care and for the amazing repair to my thumb in January. I had given up one of my joys — hand applique quilting — because of the pain. I could hardly even write my name anymore. By June, I was feeling so much better that I signed up to enter an applique quilt at the Texas State Fair. I made the quilt with no pain at all …. I entered … and found out that I was awarded a 3rd place ribbon in my quilt’s category. It will be on display at the State Fair. Thank you, Dr. Wood –this milestone in my life would not have been possible without you. Penni F.
  • Dr. DiLiberti and his team are first class medical professionals. He’s fixed every one of my fingers and both elbows. Each surgery was necessary and improved my quality of life. I’d highly recommend scheduling a consultation with him to anyone who needs a hand, wrist, or elbow specialist. Matt D.
  • Every time I have had a need, Dr. Mezera has been there for me. Usually it’s an emergency and they make sure I get an appointment. She is a wonderful doctor and is very caring. Her staff is the best!! I highly recommend Dr. Mezera. Phyllis C.
  • Dr. Wood and her staff are the best! Very easy to schedule and they really care about you. I met Dr. Wood on a Wednesday, and I had surgery that Friday. I highly recommend.Chris L.
  • Dr. DiLiberti is a very caring professional who takes time with his patients and gives them his full attention. He did not want to rush to do surgery and tried many alternatives before finally ending up having to do wrist surgery. Surgery went well and helped my daughter’s pain and for her to get the use of her hand back to normal was incredible. We have already recommended him to a couple of friends who have also had great results and feedback about him too. My daughter and I strongly recommend Dr. DiLiberti! Billy M.
  • Very impressed with the personal attention to detail and care by Dr. Mezera. She went out of her way to make sure to take the time to explain everything to us and made my son feel comfortable . She was highly recommended by the other doctor my son was seeing so her skills and abilities were never a question. It was her endearing personality that made her a highly recommended expert for extremity care. Anonymous
