“I had Achilles' tendon transplant surgery with Dr. Belis. I would 100% tell everyone about him!! I was new to the area and had so much trouble walking. I went to one doctor and they prolonged visits never helping me or sending me to a specialist. I did my research and read up on Dr. Belis.. I thank GOD above for sending me his way! It has been 8 weeks and I am walking in sneakers and riding my bike! He is the best!!!”
“Everyone made me feel welcome and expressed genuine concern about my condition. The time Dr. Belis spent with me was thorough and his office had many of the tools I needed all in one location including X-Ray, MRI and Physical Therapy. I feel like I discovered a miracle.”
