I have been seeing Dr. Geary since 2015. If I had any complaints about him, I would never go back to him. So I guess that's a good thing.

I have a hearing problem and wear hearing aids. Face masks and plastic barriers often make communication very difficult! Although I didn't mention it to anyone, Dr Geary and his team seemed to go out of their way to make themselves heard and understood. That was VERY MUCH appreciated.

The greeter gave me the covid screen and instructed me where to sit. That helped because some people are terrible at social distancing and being told where to sit made things clear. When I arrived I immediately noticed many, many people in the waiting area. I worried that I would have to wait for at least an hour and I had not planned for this. The wait was brief however and the doctor saw me shortly after I was taken to the examining room. Dr. Geary knew my medical information and noted that the last time that he saw me was in 2017 for my right arm. He asked how it has been which I appreciated. We spoke about my hip and knee and knee, addressed my concerns and reassured me that my condition can improve with therapy which I have since signed up for. Dr. Geary was very pleasant and did not make me feel that I had things to do and needed to rush off which has happened to me before and it made me very, very, very anxious. Thanks for this opportunity to give feedback on a really wonderful provider and your procedures.

Over the past 3-4 years I have been treated by *Dr. Marchetti (2 shoulder surgeries) and most recently by *Dr. Geary (fractured tibia, sprained ACL, PCL, torn meniscus). They are both top notch doctors and are very good to deal with. All the staff I've encountered are wonderful. I wouldn't go anywhere else than South Shore orthopedics.
