Dr. Mayo has been my bone doc for many years. I have full and complete trust in is opinions and performance. I find if reassuring that he is now with the Heritage Group as I am very comfortable with my primary care doc, *
I have very good care with Dr Mayo.
Dr. Mayo is an excellent physician. He is kind, caring and one of the last of dying breed of physicians who truly care about the whole patient and treats you with respect and empathy. I have never left his office feeling as if he didn't care about my condition. I hope he never retires.
Dr. Mayo has been my orthopedic Doctor for over 30 years. He's done several surgeries on me. I wouldn't go anywhere else. After this visit he phoned me to see how I was doing and added another recommendation for my care. If he ever retires he will be the one doctor I doubt if I can replace. I dread that day.
