“Dr. Dhruti Contractor is a terrific, knowledgeable, sensitive doctor who I had a wonderful experience with from the first exam to my last post-op visit. In the first exam, she took her time to understand my conditions as well as explain my treatment options. I immediately felt at ease and felt confident that I would be receiving expert medical care. Dr. Contractor is incredible. Not only has she taken great care of my health during and after surgery, but she is also lovely to speak with at every appointment. I had a great visit and her demeanor has really put me at ease so I highly recommend this clinic.” Verified patient, HEALTH GRADES

“I was really lucky to find Dr. Contractor. She quickly diagnosed me with cubital tunnel and helped me make some lifestyle changes that have alleviated my pain and symptoms almost completely. I feel confident that if things get worse in the future, she can also handle my surgery, but for now, the modifications she helped me make have greatly improved my quality of life and ability to work on the computer.” -Scoggins, HEALTH GRADES

“I saw Dr. Contractor for an issue with my wrist. I was worried about an issue that I thought I was going to have to have surgery for, but Dr. C put me in a splint first – before trying more invasive (and expensive) treatments. I’m SO grateful I found Dr. C for my wrist issue. Thank you Dr. C!!” -B. Anderson, HEALTH GRADES
