Dr. Donald O. Fareed's Ratings
Dr. Fareed has helped me tremendously with the pain in my knee and hip. Through his systematic treatment in which he finds and treats the source of the pain not just the symptoms, I now have greater mobility in my knee and hip, and the pain has subsided. Other doctors had recommended replacement surgery, but Dr. Fareed used an alternative method of stretching exercises and a few injections to treat the inflammation. His knowledge and experience regarding the design and functions of the human body is extremely impressive. I would recommend Dr. Fareed to anyone experiencing joint or muscle pain.
Dr. Fareed is an outstanding orthopedic physician - knowledgeable, trustworthy, and a master of his craft. He is a superb diagnostician and orthopedic surgeon, and in addition is an exceptionally thoughtful, highly intelligent, and caring physician. He goes beyond the expected thinking in his field to delve deeply into both traditional and non-traditional treatments; always being careful to spend sufficient time to discover the cause (or causes) of the problem - and then to explain thoroughly the rationale for the recommended treatment. I give him extraordinary credit for having completely recitifed what i consider to be a botched job by the orthopedic surgeon who did my first knee arthroscopy. The qualities I list above are obviously ideal for a physician, yet all too few meet Dr. Fareed's standards. I am pleased to give him my highest, unqualified recommendation!
Finally, an efficient and humane doctor's office and staff. And an orthopedic physician who isn't scalpel happy. Other than having to pay prior to filing with insurance, his office operates like any other- except- they're on time, you feel heard, and what he does works ! I had evaluations by other orthopedic specialists and they all wanted to 'cut.' I am significantly better, on the way to being pain-free and mobile without surgery. Definitely see this doctor before you agree to any joint replacement.
Dr. Fareed is very knowledgeable and was very helpful with both my shoulders. He actually talks to you and walks you through what is wrong and helps you to get where you need to be. I would definitely recommend him to anyone having shoulder problems.
DR. FAREED IS THE MOST CARING DOCTOR I HAVE ENCOUNTERED. HE EXPLAINED CLEARLY WHAT THE TREATMENT (SURGERY) WAS TO BE, WHAT THE RECOVERY WAS TO BE, AND GAVE ME EXERCISES TO DO PRE AND POST SURGERY. HE IS KNOWLEDGABLE, CARING AND MOST GENTLE. HIS GENTLE HANDS IN SURGERY MADE MY RECOVERY LESS PAINFUL THEREFORE THE HEALING PROCESS WAS EXPEDITED. MOST IMPORTANTLY, I FELT COMPLETE TRUST AND CONFIDENCE BEING UNDER CARE. ANOTHER SURGEON WANTED TO COMPLETELY REMOVE MY MENISCUS. DR FAREED WANTED TO ONLY TRIM IT. AFTER SURGERY BEGAN, HE ENCOUNTERED A FOUR INCH BONE SPUR, AND REMOVED IT, SPENDING MORE THAN TWO HOURS WITH HIS GENTLE HANDS PERFORMING SURGERY. HE SPENT THE LAST TWELVE MINUTES OF SURGERY HOLDING MY KNEE GENTLY. THE DAY I MET DR, FAREED WAS A LIFE CHANGER FOR ME.
Dr. Fareed was recommended by another physician that knew of his work with Frozen shoulder problems. I had already seen another ortho that did not have a good answer for my condition. I had a procedure by Dr. Fareed that solved nine months of a debilitating frozen shoulder condition. I feel very thankful to have found Dr. Fareed and would highly recommend him.
Excellent quality of care, innovative treatment, highly effective. Very personable -- made sure we understood exactly what was happening at each appt. and with each therapy. I only wish my insurance co. would cover the actual costs of therapies and surgery.
