– Patricia K.
“I HAVE BEEN WITH THIS GROUP SINCE IT WAS ON THURLOW TERRACE & MYSELF AND FAMILY HAVE SEEN SEVERAL DOCS IN THE GROUP THROUGHOUT THE YEARS BUT THIS VISIT FOR MY SON DAN WAS WITH DR. MULLIGAN AND HE'S AWESOME! AS A NURSE I WORKED IN ANOTHER ORTHO GROUP IN THE AREA YEARS AGO AND WOULD NEVER RECOMMEND ANYONE OTHER THEN THE BONE AND JOINT CENTER! THERE IS NO BETTER ORTHO GROUP THEN THEM AND THE NEW URGENT CARE FEATURE WHICH WE USED FOR MY SON FOR THIS INJURY WAS VERY USER FRIENDLY AND LESS OF A WAIT THEN ANY OTHER URGENT CARE or ER COULD EVER BE!!!”

“This was my first visit to Dr. Mulligan. He is the first doctor to give me answer about what's going on with my hands. I've been having such issues with them for a few years now. Blood tests and x-rays haven't revealed anything out of the ordinary. My co-worker referred me to see him and she said he wouldn't let me leave the office without some kind of plan and she was right! He took the time and explained to me what's happening with my left hand and what can be done for it in the future. He also gave me advice as to continue seeing my Rheumatologist and to explain to that doctor what's going on. I was truly ready to give up and just deal with the pain in both hands but once I met with Dr. Mulligan, that has changed. I now know what I have and understand what the pains are all about. I would recommend anyone I know to see Dr. Mulligan.”
