What They’re Saying

Dr. Chaim quickly diagnosed my problem, helped me understand what exercises I can safely do with my current injury and had me on my way very quickly. He was friendly and funny too!


I really liked Dr. Solomon Chaim! He explained the break and showed me the X-rays. I’ve already recommended him to my friends.

I could barely walk the first time I saw Dr. Chaim. He looked at my x-rays & immediately knew the problem. Surgery was scheduled the next week. While the recovery was intense, I was able to walk in a few months. 2 years later, the same surgery had to be done to my other foot. Same great results! Now I walk pain-free!!!
