Dr. Backus was awesome. This was our first visit with her, and I have already told people how awesome she is. She took her time with us, answered all our questions, and at no point in time did we feel rushed. She went above and beyond what I expected. Hopefully we don't need to use her services again, but if we need an orthopedic we know exactly where to go.

highly recommend Dr Backus. We have seen her twice and both times super energetic, friendly and very thorough in explaining the issue. Not only to me but to my 12 year old son. She helped us with finding affordable knee braces and gave us lots of info to take home
