  • “I was only there only a few minutes before I was called back to the exam room. The staff was so friendly and nice. Dr. Brazinski made me feel like he was truly concerned about my shoulder and back pain. He gave me neck exercises to do and I left having s very good opinion of the treatment I received at EmergeOrtho today. I would recommend anyone to go there for help! Thanks to all of you!!”
