In March, 2011 my 8 year old son was diagnosed with Perthes Disease and referred to a specialist to plan his treatment. At the time, I had no idea what that meant. After 2 conflicting opinions about the course of treatment for my son, I reached out to his pediatrician for guidance. She urged me to go see Dr. Feldman, stating that because he is so good at what he does, she would trust him with her own children. That piece of advice changed our lives.

Even though Dr. Feldman knew he was our third opinion, he took the time to explain my son’s diagnosis and possible courses of treatment. He was optimistic, yet realistic as he answered every question that I had.

Over the past 2 ½ years, Dr. Feldman has built a professional relationship with my family that we have come to appreciate greatly. He has always given us excellent advice, and his work has enabled my son to return to all of his normal activities, including participating competitively in both baseball and football. My son looks forward to his visits with Dr. Feldman, and has even been inspired by him to pursue a career as an orthopedic surgeon when he grows up!
