Jessica S's Story Poor Fair Good Very Good Excellent After tearing my ACL during a race, Dr. Ryan reconstructed my ACL in late 2012 and literally saved my running career. As a sports medicine specialist, he knew that not running (like other doctors recommended) was NOT an option for me, and helped me explore all options available. He had even gone through the same surgery himself, so he was able to talk me through every strange sensation and scary new experience post-surgery. During recovery, he never got frustrated when I called him in a panic – multiple times – thinking I’d torn the new tendon just by bending the wrong way. He always eased my fears in a completely non-patronizing way, and thanks to his fantastic work, I was able to run a 15 minute PR in my last half marathon this May! I can’t speak highly enough about Dr. Ryan.
