Hello, my name is Beverly and I am a patient at Atlanta Orthopedics. Back in May of 2009 I was at the local gym and I had decided that day to do an extra class. I should have listened to my body but instead I pushed myself to hard and ended up with a torn meniscus. A friend of mine referred me to Dr. Todd Zeigler at Atlanta Orthopedics. My friend was a previous patient of Dr. Zeiglers and highly recommended him. My experience has been wonderful. From the moment I had my first appointment I was impressed. The office is convenient, clean, and the staff was very helpful and friendly. Dr. Zeigler was great about explaining the type of injury I had and gave me options to choose from. I decided to go ahead and have surgery. So on August 27th I had surgery at Gwinnett Medical. After surgery, I returned to Atlanta Orthopedics for my post operative appointment. At this time I was just starting my physical therapy at Atlanta Rehabilitation. One of things that I really liked about my experience is that everything was right there in the same building. My doctor, my physical therapist, and my personal trainer where all there so if I had any questions they were there to help me. Dr. Zeigler encouraged me to continue with physical therapy and to stay active. He suggested a personal trainer named Christine at Atlanta Wellness which was right next door to Atlanta Orthopedics. It was very affordable and she showed me exercises that I could do at home or at the gym to help me strengthen my knee. I have been exercising my whole life and I have learned that if you are injured it can be challenging to stay active. Thanks to Dr. Zeigler, Sam, and Christine for motivating me. I now know that I can do anything I put my mind to.
