Dr. Belfie has fantastic bedside manner. We never felt rushed at any point during the visit and he spent ample time making sure we were well informed on the pros and cons of ACL repair. He is one of the most knowledgeable surgeons I have met and his explanations were easily understandable. I give him the highest marks and would recommend to anyone needing ACL surgery.
