People We’ve Helped

  • I had suffered for over 8 months with lower back pain and sciatica before learning of Dr. Lafleur. His initial exam revealed several areas of concern. One of these required an inexpensive orthotic device. I was able to obtain it from a local supplier that day. By the next day, my eight month backache was nearly gone.

    -William C.
  • We love Dr. Morris! She's the best. I am a frequent flyer with 3 boys. She treated ALL of us with the utmost respect when answering questions about surgery and injuries. Always made the boys feel like part of the process and made sure they were comfortable with everything. Hopefully we are done with surgeries, but if not, she's our doc!

    -Alice L.
  • Dr. Witty repaired my shoulder, and now I am pain free and on the road to recovery. Great doctor! Explained everything to me. His staff is also great. Everyone there treated me with the upmost respect and care. Thank you so much Dr. Witty!

    -Albert S.
  • Dr. Barousse was very thorough in explaining my treatment options and diagnosis. He took his time to explain the X-Ray results and allow me to ask necessary questions to make an informed decision for my treatment. The wait time was minimal and his staff was kind and well versed throughout my orthopedic experience!

    -Jessica B.
  • Dr. Barousse is fantastic! He fixed my broken tibia and fibula and I have had an amazing recovery. Cosmetics look great. And my functionality is 100%! Highly recommend! North Oaks is blessed to have him.

    -Michelle H.
  • Went the extra mile to save my hand. Would use him again undoubtedly.

    -Healthgrades User
  • Dr. Morris is very friendly, very informative and helpful in understanding my injury, surgery and recovery.

    -John L.
  • Dr. Lands was my mom's surgeon and I could not be happier. I feel very blessed to have had him involved in her care.

    -Amanda H.
  • I’m very pleased. Randy took the time to explain everything to me in terms that I could understand. He took all of the time that I needed, didn’t feel rushed. Very polite. I would definitely recommend Randy.

    -Debbie S.
  • For a few months I was struggling to play through the pain and it began to impact my performance. Eventually the pain began to also negatively affect my daily quality of life and made small tasks burdensome and rather intolerable. Dr. Shourbaji listened thoroughly and provided both short and long term recommendations. I was immensely thankful to receive immediate relief and was thrilled to be pain free and perform and live at my full potential.

    -Eve A.
  • I highly recommend Marc Pitre. He listens to your concerns. He also explains everything that’s going on with you and does everything in his profession to get to the problem at hand! Thank you so much!

    -Latasha T.
  • Dr. Witty explained in detail his findings and outlined, again in detail, his recommendations. There was ample time for questions and answers.

    -James N.
  • Dr. Lafleur and his team are the best in the business. I have had nothing but excellent care, professionalism, and understanding. I would recommend Dr. Lafleur to anyone.

    -Desiree H.
  • Dr. Lands did a hip replacement surgery on my right hip. He was very informative explaining what was going on with my hip prior to me having the surgery. He said it has to be done in order for me to return to a normal way of life but I postponed it. He also said and I quote “you’ll know when you’re ready”...lol. I was in a lot of pain and Dr. Lands gave me meds to curve the pain until I was ready to schedule my surgery. Dr. Lands was right and after months of dealing with the pain and scheduling office visits I scheduled my surgery. The surgery was GREAT! When I came to I was not in any pain and I was able to walk within hours of my surgery of course with the assistance of a walker. I was in the hospital for just one night for observation. If you’re having problems with your hips I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Dr. Lands to do your surgery.

    -Albert D.
  • Dr. Morris is easy to talk to. She uses down to earth terms and analogies to make things easy to understand. Staff is friendly too. I would recommend them to anyone.

    -Tab L.
  • Very clean office and Randy is efficient, friendly and professional.

    -Eka G.
  • Dr. Lands did surgery on my ankle. I was very pleased with his willingness to explain the procedure as well as answered all of our questions. He is very professional and knowledgeable in his field. Highly recommend him and his staff including Janet Morse FNP, RN.
