“Thank you for the amazing care to our athletes here at Lee University. Over the past five years as Head Athletic Trainer at Lee, I have been able to work with several Orthopaedic surgeons, but none have provided the quality of care that we have received from you and your staff."

“I couldn't be more pleased with the results and attention I have received with my rotator cuff surgery. I will recommend Doctor Dorizas and his wonderful staff to everyone.”
