I went to Dr. Margherita for knee pain a month before a planned camping trip. The office got me an appointment quickly. When I got there, everyone was friendly and professional. Dr. M is very thorough - he LISTENS and asks questions, then probes and manipulates to isolate the issue. I ended up with X-ray, MRI and ultrasound, as each imaging method gives you different info. My injured knee was completely fixed in time for lots of hiking. Couldn't be more pleased!

I'd been having rotator cuff problems from years of playing competitive softball and had visited a couple of surgeons for advice. Basically. they said "When the pain gets bad enough come back and see me!" Dr. Margherita at West County Spine and Sports was recommended to me by a teammate and he was a breath of fresh air. I decided to visit his office and he was able to size up the situation very quickly. We set up a visit schedule for therapy and then a regimen of exercises to do at home. After 4 months I am completely pain free, yeah!!!! No Advil, no nothing! I don't believe in miracles but I do believe in Dr. Margherita. Now, I'm not going to go out and see how far I can throw a softball...but my shoulder feels like a million bucks. They took my insurance which also made it real easy. Dr Marg's is the best!
