Last month Dr. Charen took care of my Left knee. A consummate pro, he tells you what you need to hear. 8 years ago when another Orthopedic told me to "suck it up", there's nothing wrong - Dr. Charen read the same MRI and told me I had a torn Meniscus and scheduled surgery right away! I'm a forever customer.
I recently visited Dr. Charen for hip pain. He reminded me I had seen him in 2005 for a knee issue, but did not have him do the knee replacement and that I should go elsewhere since he feels I don't trust him. I told him I went to another doctor who was experienced in the latest technology in 2006 for knee replacement to which he got very defensive. I cannot recommend someone who obviously holds a grudge and carries a scalpel.
