Knee Patient – Sports Injury
Knee Patient – Sports Injury: I was devastated when I got the news that my ACL was torn. Dr. Foad came highly recommended from my wife who is a health care provider. She, along with her coworkers, have been very impressed by his level of care.
After an MRI confirmed my ACL tear, I left Dr. Foad’s office feeling confident that I was in the best hands possible. He took his time and explained in great detail what my surgical options were.
He discussed realistically what my pain would be like after surgery. He discussed the after care including physical therapy and how long I would be restricted from higher-level activities. My entire plan of care was communicated to me.
One thing I really enjoyed throughout my care was that I got to see Dr. Foad every time I had a follow up visit. That alone, speaks volumes to me as a patient. It demonstrated that he had a desire to do the follow-up care and make the necessary changes as needed to maximize my outcome.
A little over a year after my first repair, I tore my other ACL. I knew without a doubt that Dr. Foad would be my surgeon. I have since referred many coworkers to him and his level of care has not disappointed anyone.
I highly recommend Dr. Foad. I have experienced nothing but a high standard of care from him and I have reaped the benefits. I have returned to my recreational activities including basketball, golfing, and Cross Fitting without any restrictions.
