Dr. Mak was very professional. He spent an appropriate amount of time each visit explaining the recommended procedures and what he was trying to accomplish. I appreciate his work. The Freehold staff was also very good. Appointments were good, didn’t wait a long time once I checked in and we’re always pleasant about booking future appointments.
I am truly grateful to Dr. Sean Li for treating me promptly to alleviate my severe knee pain. The procedure he performed on my knee has given me great relief. I commend Dr. Li for his knowledge of various treatment techniques available for my condition. I look forward to seeing him in the future to continue my treatment.
