Patient Testimonials

Average Star Rating
"Dr. Theodore is definitely one of the best orthopedic surgeons out there. If you are in the Boston area, go the extra mile to book an appointment. I had ACL reconstruction surgery done earlier this month and am absolutely 1000% satisfied with my procedure. I believe Dr. Theodore goes the extra mile to listen and dedicates all his efforts to each patient.
