We have the positive reviews to prove it!

I received the ARP wave post surgery therapy and it helped me with a faster recovery, less swelling, less pain, and better range of motion. I received excellent care and results from this treatment.

By all means consider Dr. Darr. I have had very positive results with two separate total knee replacement procedures. I have absolutely no pain while doing all activities of daily living now.

I received two of the PRP injections. First procedure the pain got progressively better as each of the seven weeks went by. The second procedure relieved top of the shoulder pain and back. Dr. Darr gave me quality care and expertise of my shoulder problem. He used his knowledge to determine where the injections needed to be done. I have already referred Dr. Darr to people and I will continue to refer patient to him.
