"Dr. Margherita helped me deal with pain that I’d given up on ever resolving. He was incredibly thorough, took nothing for granted, solved my problem. He’s knowledgeable, has great bedside manner, and gives back to the community by always bringing in interns and students to shadow and work with him."

Met Dr. Margherita when I was a participant in a drug study for arthritic knee pain. Both of my knees were arthritic, but we had to choose only one for this study. After making our choice, he asked if no other Dr. M told me there were other procedures to relief the knee pain in my other knee. I returned to see him after the study because of his communication skills, knowledge of my type of condition, educational background & bedside manner.
