Dr. Bare is a great communicator, reviewed all of my concerns, examined me closely, and immediately arranged for the physiotherapy he recommended, as well as setting me up with a referral for a sports medicine orthopoedist to address my related issues. I am delighted to have discovered Northwestern Orthopoedics and would certainky recommend them.

I went there for the first time not knowing what to expect. I & my niece who was accompanying me liked the rapport established w/ both the doctor & his PA and info provided. I feel at peace w/ my decision on upcoming surgery, trusting that they will take good care of me through it. That is very important to me!

I can't say enough about Dr. Bare and his PA. They are the most professional care providers I have met. The skills and education that these men have is above and beyond any of my expectations. I feel comfortable and I walk out knowing that I have received the best care and understanding. I could go on forever about them.
