I am so glad that my 84yr old mom and stepdad finally was able to see Dr Alamarie for their chronic pain in their knees and backs. They and I appreciated his compassionate care. Dr. Alamarie listened carefully to their concerns and came up with a plans to help them. Their moods have already improved because they are experiencing some relief already. I wished I had insisted that they visit sooner. Thanks Dr. Alamarie! I am sure at some point I will have to see you too!

Had such a good experience. Ive done the shockwave therapy for my knee at the waxhaw office and I am already feeling better after several treatments. Will continue to come back. I dont know why people always complain about money. Most places if you are doing cosmetic or fertility treatments require money up front and its no refunds even if its not successful—welcome to the real world. Thanks Dr. Alamarie for your great bedside manner!!! Dont listen to people who typically cant afford appropriate care. They are adults you make your bed and you lay in it!

It was easy to make an appointment. Recently went for a laser treatment on my knee. Already feeling better. Not sure why others have bad experiences. Will be going back in a couple weeks for another treatment. Ive had a great experience with Dr Alamarie and the staff. Look forward to going again. Great experience with Pam and Dr. Alamarie. Would come back again!
